Solar made simple.

Project Timeline

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.

Community Partner

DISCLAIMER: Eligible homeowners who desire to participate in the Summit Community Power Works (SCPW) Solar Program will work directly with the selected installer to get a bid based on the size, location and energy use of their home. Homeowners who decide to install solar will contract directly with the installer – SCPW and Utah Clean Energy (UCE) will not be a party to the contract – and the panels will be installed on a first-come, first-served basis. Participating homeowners are solely responsible for negotiating and agreeing upon the terms of the contracts and related payment and financing arrangements. SCPW and UCE are not in a position to make, and do not make, any representations or guarantees about the installer or their work. Participating homeowners need to do their own due diligence and be satisfied that the installer can and will provide the homeowner with what the homeowner needs and expects. As a condition of participation in the SCPW Solar Program, and acknowledging SCPW and UCE’s role as facilitators of the discount Program, all participating homeowners agree to release SCPW and UCE from, and agree that SCPW and UCE will not have any responsibility or liability for: (i) the work performed by an Installer, (ii) any payment or financing related to such work, and (iii) any claim that may arise in connection with any of the contracts between a homeowner and the installer.
