Comet Energy Frequently Asked Questions

How much will it cost for me to get solar?

There are many variables; this is very dependent on how your household uses electricity. No two families use electricity the same, even if their square footage is the same. An average home in city limits with a gas furnace is in the range of $20,000-$35,000. To get a more accurate price, you can submit your power bill to Comet Energy.

Will my solar system still work when the power in my neighborhood goes out?

This is heavily dependent on your equipment. The standard solar system depends on power to operate, but there are many options to keep your household running — even when the grid is down. Some systems will work if the sun is out. There is also the option to add batteries to your system. Additionally, Comet Energy specializes in generators which can help run some things within your household if the power goes out.

Can I go off grid with solar panels?

When you install solar panels on your property, you will still be connected to the grid. This allows you to draw from the grid when your system is not producing all of the power that you need, and send power back to the grid when you produce more than you use. There are options to stay off the grid, but you will not be able to receive credits for overproducing. It is possible to go off the grid with a solar energy system that includes battery storage, but it will cost significantly more and is unnecessary for the majority of homeowners.

What is the federal investment tax credit for solar?

Commonly known as the Investment Tax Credit (ITC), it is one of the biggest impacts on the cost you will face to go solar in Idaho. The federal tax credit is going to be 30 percent till 2032. For example, if your solar energy system costs $25,000, your federal solar tax credit would be $25,000 x 30% = $7,500. *Please consult a tax professional for tax related details pertaining to your circumstances.*

Comet Energy installed my solar 2 years ago and I’m loving it! My bill was often over $200 and it’s usually $5 now (the cost to have a meter). They came and left when they said they would and answered all my questions.
