Event: Solar power at home and work Nov 01, 2013, 8:00 am By Heidi Carmack Pfaffroth

The new Utah gold rush

A perfect storm is brewing for solar energy in Utah. The installed cost of photovoltaic, or PV, solar panels continues to decline, and Rocky Mountain Power projects significant rate increases throughout the coming decade. With tax breaks, government rebates and favorable banking finance programs, solar adoption is rising brightly on the Beehive State’s energy horizon.

Bank of American Fork is a sponsor for a panel discussion on the benefits and implementation process of solar systems for homes, apartments and businesses. The panel will be on Friday, November 8 from noon to 1:30 p.m. at the Provo Marriott, 101 W 100 N in Provo.

The panelists include Dr. Bernell Stone, Global Energy Management; Scott Cruze, Concept Property Management; Erik Anderson, Rocky Mountain Power; James Johnston, The NRG Bureau; Jeff Barrett, Governor’s Office of Economic Development, Energy Division; and Orrin Farnsworth, Utah Solar Energy Association. Panelists will discuss the trends, incentives, costs and favorable payback expectations for commercial and residential solar power retrofit and usage. Unlike typical investment risks, solar energy’s future looks brighter by the day. All attendees will receive the Solar ROI Case Study & White Paper, which is the same data Warren Buffet’s solar team is reviewing.

This event is a must for you if you are a:

• Homebuilder—Green, energy-efficient homes are in demand.

• Financial advisor—Solar tax advantages are at an all-time high.

• Commercial property owner—Get your share of $7.8 million in Utah solar rebates.

• Homeowner—Own your own power plant for $1 a day in less than 10 years.
