The Time for Home Solar in Colorado Is Now
With an average of 245 sunny days per year1 and the cost of producing solar energy rapidly declining,2 there hasn’t been a better time to go solar in Colorado. In fact, the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) shows Colorado rooftop solar panels already create enough energy to power 250,000 homes.3
According to studies, our country’s grid doesn’t have the necessary strength to keep up with our increasing electricity demands.4 So while government agencies and electric companies spend billions on adding capacity to the grid, switching to solar with a Colorado solar company like Sunrun is one of the smartest and most cost-effective ways to ensure you get the energy you need, especially on hot summer and cold winter days.
As the nation's largest residential solar, storage and energy services company,5 Sunrun’s made-to-fit solar plans make going solar as simple and affordable as it gets.
