Financial Incentives Make Going Solar Very Affordable

One of the biggest benefits of choosing solar today is the availability of significant cost savings:

  • Federal Solar Tax Credit – You can claim 30% of your solar installation costs back as a tax credit when you file. This saves you thousands.
  • Local Utility Rebates – Idaho Power offers a rebate up to $6,000 when you install a solar system. We’ll ensure you maximize available rebates.
  • Low-Interest Loans – We help arrange solar loans with low interest rates. This spreads costs over time with manageable payments.
  • Net Metering – With solar you get bill credits from Idaho Power for excess power sent to the grid. This offsets nighttime energy use.
  • Property Value Increase – Going solar can add to your home’s value, making it an excellent investment.

With incentives factored in, installing solar through Penta Electric yields a short payback period and years of free electricity. Contact us to learn just how affordable solar can be.

Frequently Asked Questions About Our Idaho Solar Installation Services


We get many common questions from Meridian residents and business owners who are interested in having us install EV chargers. Here are some of the key topics that come up:

How much space do solar panels require?

Solar arrays vary in size based on energy needs. As a rule of thumb, you’ll need about 100 square feet for each 1-2kW generated. Ground mounts require more space than roof systems. We design layouts to maximize production given your usable area.

When is the best time of year to install solar?

Late spring to early fall is ideal for installation in Idaho, when weather is mildest. We can install year-round but avoid winter due to snow, ice, and shorter days. Aim to have your system operational before summer’s peak loads.

How long does installation take?

The full process takes approximately 4-6 weeks. Solar equipment shipping adds 2-3 weeks. Permits can take up to 4 weeks. And the physical install takes 2-3 full workdays, sometimes longer for large or complex projects.

What incentives are available for solar panels?

Thanks to the federal solar tax credit, you can save 30% of system costs. Additional Idaho incentives include utility rebates and net metering programs. We help identify and maximize incentives to reduce your price.

Will solar work on cloudy days?

Yes! Solar panels still produce energy on cloudy and shady days. Solar systems are designed to provide power year-round, even when sunlight levels drop in winter. High-efficiency panels make the most of available light.
