While technically being closer to the sun that most states, it’s not the altitude that makes for wonderful solar in Colorado, it’s the higher than average cost of electricity. And, switching to solar in Colorado can make a big difference. The majority of Colorado's power comes from burning coal, so every solar home is a move away from dirty energy and toward a clean energy future.
Solar power is growing very quickly in Colorado, thanks to supportive policies for renewable energy. The state has a goal to get 30% of its energy from renewable sources by 2020. In addition, Colorado has an established solar rebate program, offered through the individual CO utility companies. Learn more about Colorado Solar Incentives & Rebates.
Before 2010, most people in Colorado purchased solar panels when they went solar. Today, over 70% of Colorado home solar installations are done with a solar lease.
We could have our own crews that we send all over the country to install solar systems. However we choose to not only make a difference for the planet, but also in Colorado. Our Colorado customers have solar systems built by the best Colorado installers.
"Before we had solar, I would think every time I touched the thermostat, "how much is this going to cost me?" With solar, I just make sure that our family is comfortable."
