The State of Utah has a great solar energy resource with many clear and sunny days. Solar photovoltaic energy or solar electric energy is a very reliable source of energy and can be a great investment into your home and a great way to reduce your dependence on the electric grid. Considering that 95% of the electricity generated in Utah comes from coal power, generating your own power from solar energy will reduce your carbon footprint and help you have a lighter impact on the environment. There are also many rebates available right now for individuals and home owners who install a solar energy system.

2013 UPDATE:
Harnessing renewable energy in Park City will be a little easier on the pocketbook in 2013. The City Council has agreed to waive up to $1,000 in building and inspection fees for solar photovoltaic (PV), solar thermal, and wind energy projects completed in 2013. The fee waiver is available for residential and commercial projects. For larger projects, the first $1,000 in fees would also be eligible for the fee waiver.  Click here for contact info for the Park City Building Department.

Note: the 2013 fee waiver applies to projects completed within Park City Municipal limits (see map).  For other local projects that are outside of City Limits, see Summit County's website for info on the permitting process.
