Blue Raven Solar Wins 2018 Best of State in Utah for Solar Technology


Blue Raven Solar was named Utah’s Best of State in Solar Technology for 2018.

The Best of State Awards were created in 2003 to recognize outstanding individuals, organizations and businesses in Utah. Best of State candidates are evaluated by a panel of 100 judges based on three criteria: achievement in the field of endeavor; innovation or creativity in approaches, techniques, methods or processes; and contribution to improving the quality of life in Utah.

“We are grateful to be recognized as the best for solar technology here in Utah,” said CEO Ryan Lee, “Blue Raven Solar has always been looking to create the best solar product for homeowners. Our innovative solar product, BluePower Plus+, has allowed us to distinguish ourselves as a top-rated solar company and sustain relentless growth from our start.”

When Blue Raven launched in 2014, power purchase agreements (PPAs) were the market leader and were by far the vast majority of residential solar products in the US. With PPAs, the solar company owns the system and homeowners lease power from the solar company. The solar company gets the tax benefit rather than the customer.

BluePower was launched in 2015, a solar ownership product that made it so the customer not only owns their solar system, but also enabled them to collect the tax incentives instead of the solar company.

About a year later, BluePower Plus+ was developed to offer customers 18 months of free solar power upfront, making solar purchases a $0 down, $0 upfront, $0 payment plan for the first year and a half.

Creating proprietary products has contributed substantially to Blue Raven becoming the fastest growing solar company in the nation. In 3.5 years, Blue Raven Solar has risen to the top 1/2 of 1% of solar companies according to solar industry authority GreenTech Media (GTM), in addition to being ranked as the #1 solar installer for 2017 and 2018 on
