Solar Energy in Utah

Living in Utah, you probably already know how the weather can be a little irrational; especially during the changing of the seasons.

Winters in the Beehive State can also be summarized as an intense experience, and if you are one that enjoys being home while the cold sets in, maybe you should consider lowering your monthly power bill.

But how this can be done? Well, if you haven’t been living under a rock, solar energy is one of the best options – especially in Utah.

Studies show that winter days in Salt Lake City have an average of 7 solar hours, with 3-5 of them at their peak sun hours. Although the days are shorter, the consumption of energy in a home during the snowy months tends to rise, costing Utahns more and more each


On average, we spend about $90 in the later season to heat our homes, and with new technologies on the rise as well, it is more than likely going to boost your bill a bit.

Converting your energy consumption into a renewable containment system will not only lower your bill but by switching over to Utah solar, you will also be lowering your carbon footprint.

Our use of fossil fuels is reaching an all-time high in the United States. In 2014, Utah is was ranked #35 on the list of most energy consuming states, which is actually pretty good in comparison. But using 271 million BTU’s per year (nearly 50 barrels a person) is still a pretty heavy number. 

Switching over to renewable energy can decrease the amount of your monthly power bills, and ultimately conserve our natural resources in the process. Once you convert your homes’ energy, you’ll be able to harness the power of the sun yourself – cutting the cost of your power usage, and keeping the power company out of your wallet.
