Louisville is taking control of its power.

Find out how easy it is to go solar with Sunrun and save on your electric bills.

Home solar in Louisville, Colorado

Louisville homeowners are turning to solar energy to power their homes. Although loved for its great outdoors, the city of Louisville currently gets much of its power from coal mining. However, with lots of sun and clear skies, the city is perfect for solar and more and more of the city residents are making the switch to renewable energy.

Van's Story

Even before Van moved into his current house in Louisville, solar was on his mind. Van had always been interested in getting home solar panels in Louisville, but it was simply too expensive to do so. When Boulder County began offering its Climate Smart Program, a program that provides upfront financing for home solar projects, Van and his family immediately called their local Louisville solar company, REC Solar. The excitement was short-lived, however, as they soon discovered that the home solar loan program was less than ideal for their situation. According to Van, when it came down to the dollar amount, the upfront home solar loan was more expensive than a typical home loan.


Luckily, Van and the REC representative kept in touch and when Sunrun launched in Colorado, Van was one of the first to hear about a new way in which he could finance his home solar in Louisville - solar leasing. While there are a number of different home solar financing options, many include hidden complications. With Sunrun, getting home solar panels is straightforward and simple.


Van and his family were able to have a Louisville solar home even earlier than expected, as his installation process was able to be pushed forward, and they couldn't be more excited. Van had been waiting to go home solar for a long time, but with Sunrun home home solar power, the wait was finally over.
