Solar Program, offering assistance to Idaho citizens and companies interested in
taking advantage of solar technologies for space heating, water heating, power
generation and more. The program provides solar technology information at
renewable energy fairs and workshops throughout the state. It also conducts
training for electricians, engineers, installers and dealers in the design and
safe installation techniques of solar power systems. Publications on solar
applications and information on low interest loans are also available through
the division. We are proud to be co-chair of the Idaho PV4You Solar Working
