Find out how easy it is to go solar with Sunrun and save on your CO electric bill.
There is so much sun in Colorado that it can produce 100x more electricity than it needs. It’s no wonder that the Colorado solar energy sector has created tons of new opportunities in research, development and manufacturing1 This is a win-win for everyone. A healthier planet and a healthier workforce.
Renewable energy in Colorado is, quite frankly, nothing new. Colorado has been on the solar power wave for years. It continues to be on the Top #10 list of states that harness massive power from the sun.2
Colorado Electricity Rates are High
Despite the positive news above, Colorado’s electricity prices continue to rise. In fact, this state’s utility rates have risen 62.1% across residential, commercial and industrial sectors in the past 15 years (although there has been a slight dip lately).3
This increase has grown higher and faster than the rise in household income. And the Institute for Energy Research (IER) notes that Colorado has higher electricity rates than most of its neighboring states.4 This is not such good news. Plus, Colorado continues to rely on dirty coal and electrical power plants.5 This is not at all very good news.
Sunrun™ wants to help Colorado fight the good fight against rising utility rates and dirty fossil fuels. The world has basically agreed that we all want a safer planet for future generations. And we all want savings.
**Customer’s ability to monetize rebates, incentives and tax credits depends on several factors, including, without limitation, continued state subsidization of these policies, the applicable Sunrun product type, and whether a customer purchases or leases a solar system from Sunrun.
Sunrun™ Solar Incentives We Call Our Own
Colorado believes in solar energy, this is clear. However, incentives and rebates for installing solar energy can be a bit confusing - as it is in many states. Here at Sunrun™ our solar technicians make it a point to keep current on state and federal financial incentives - and we walk you through what’s available in your area.
And we’re also proud of our own incentives. We pass many savings along to our customers… upfront. No waiting for tax season. No complicated paperwork. No fuss and bother. We handle all the paperwork (including permits) and apply for all the state and federal deductions for you. Then we pass these savings onto you - upfront. You get a lower upfront price for your solar system, or a lower monthly utility bill for two decades.
We do it all for you. It doesn’t get better than that.
