Home solar in Boulder, Colorado

Thanks to Colorado's commitment to renewable energy, homeowners in Boulder are switching to solar power. It's a great way to declare energy independence from coal power and save on your electric bill.

Kendra & Humberto's Story

Kendra and Humberto’s move towards their Boulder solar home all started in Costco. One day, the couple was shopping at Costco, a solar power user, when they met a home solar sales rep from REC solar. Kendra and Humberto were interested in getting home solar panels on their house in Boulder for a while but had been deterred by the high upfront costs. Prior to Sunrun’s launch of its solar leasing program in Colorado, solar financing was tough to come by. In their home town of Boulder, solar panels made quite the dent in one’s wallet. Although they were sure that they wanted a Boulder solar home, they simply weren’t sure how they were going to finance one.


Here was where Sunrun came in. After a few months, the home solar rep returned to Kendra and Humberto: “I think I got an answer.” The answer was Sunrun solar financing. With Sunrun’s new Colorado solar leasing program, the family was able to lease home solar panels, lock in electricity rates for 20 years, and help the environment. The first in the state to do so, Kendra and Humberto have paved the way for many more homeowners to go solar in Boulder.
