FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONSGet the Answers You’re Looking for.
Does Solar Exempt Me from Blackouts?
By default, no. Any solar energy system that is connected to the public grid shuts off during a blackout, and therefore your power goes out along with everyone else’s. However, by installing an inverter that can “island” your home by temporarily disconnecting you from the public grid, your home’s power system can safely turn back on during a blackout. When combined with a home battery system, a solar energy system can potentially keep you powered during a blackout for hours or even days at a time.
What Incentives Are Available?
The federal government as well as the state of Idaho have several incentives available for homeowners who wish to install a solar energy system. The federal investment tax credit (ITC) is only available for a short time longer before it disappears for residential customers forever, so make the switch today and save even more! Likewise, state incentives and local programs are changing constantly, so talk to a member of our team to learn what is currently available for you.
How Big of a Water Source Does a Micro Hydro Power System Need?
There really is no straightforward answer to this question. To put it simple, the more power you need, the more flowing water you will need available. Generally, properties with water rights along the Boise River, the Snake River, Rock Creek, and other fairly substantial running bodies of water should be able to utilize micro hydro power. However, those alongside still bodies like lakes generally won’t be able to. Talk to our team to find out more about the potential your property has.
