One of the more northerly states, Idaho isn’t known for a warm climate, but it does get plenty of sunshine. In fact, most of Idaho gets more sun than the national average. As such it’s a great place for photovoltaics. In fact, the state gets more sun than Florida, despite its northerly location. As such homeowners can expect a decent return on investment for going solar. 

As of October 2012, to promote the use of solar and other renewable energy as well as energy efficiency, Idaho offers a number of powerful incentives through the Governor’s Office of Energy Resources and others. It also offers tax deductions, rebates and low-interest rate loans for solar systems. Under the incentives a solar system could be paid off in a few years.
