The State of Utah has a great solar energy resource with many clear and sunny days. Solar photovoltaic energy (i.e. solar electric energy) is a very reliable source of energy and can be a great investment into your home and a great way to reduce your dependence on the electric grid. Considering that over 75% of the electricity generated in Utah comes from burning coal and natural gas, generating your own power from solar energy will reduce your carbon footprint and help you have a lighter impact on the environment.In addition, having solar on site will ensure that you have electricity during power outages.

In order to incentivise installation of private rooftop solar systems, Park City has waived building permit and site inspection fees for all solar systems. See here for Municipal Resolution. In addition, the Land Management Code has been recently modified to enable solar energy systems.
