EmpowerSLC Solar will be open for enrollment now through December 13th, 2019. Those who commit to installing solar projects will be served on a first come first serve basis, so get started now!
The EmpowerSLC Solar team and Steering Committee members have been in the planning stages since June 2019. In August 2019, their efforts culminated in a request for proposals for potential contractors, and the beginning of a streamlined and affordable solar experience for Salt Lake County homeowners. The project timeline is as follows:
September 6, 2019 – December 13, 2019 – Official EmpowerSLC Solar enrollment
September – December 31, 2019 – Official EmpowerSLC Solar commitment period; solar installations will begin on a first-come, first-served basis.
October 31st – Last day to sign a contract with the installer to guarantee a 2019 installation completion date (last day to qualify for 30% Federal Tax Credit; installations complete in 2020 will be eligible for a 26% Federal Tax Credit).
December 31, 2019 – Last day for EmpowerSLC Solar Participants to commit to installing solar at bulk-purchase rates.
December 31, 2019 – Preferred completion date of all solar installations*
*Installations may not be completed by this date, pending weather conditions and participation levels. Participants will be served on a first-come, first-served basis. This timeline is subject to change.
