Everyone living in Boulder, CO knows how beautiful this city is. Everyone who doesn’t live in Boulder knows how beautiful this city is. At the foothills of the famous Rocky Mountains, Boulder is famous around the world.
Keeping this city beautiful - or any city for that matter - just doesn’t happen. It takes effort. And Boulder’s renewable energy efforts with a focus on solar power is going a long way to keeping the city healthy and green.
The city of Boulder wants to make solar panels and power from the sun readily available to its homeowners. Just imagine... it gets 300 days of sunshine per year1 and is the perfect location for solar companies to support residents who want to reduce their carbon footprint.2 Sunrun™ is here to make this a reality.
In fact, we are bringing hundreds of green jobs to both our Boulder and Denver Sunrun offices to serve residential homeowners. We’re honored to play a meaningful part of the economic health of both communities. And the health of the planet!
Despite Boulder’s solar power commitment, 99% of its emissions still come from burning dangerous fossil fuels to produce electricity.3 The entire state of Colorado continues to rely on dirty coal and electrical power plants.4 Going solar now is critical for a positive future and the health and wealth of Boulder and the state.
Colorado has been a proponent of sustainable energies for quite some time. For more than ten years the state has discussed moving away from coal and toward solar, wind and natural gas. But it hasn’t happened. Electricity rates have risen sharply. Rising residential rates have increased 60.9% in the last 15 years.5
There has never been a better time to go solar. Sunrun wants to help Boulder in its efforts to go green, and save green in dollars and sense. Rooftop solar is an obvious renewable-energy choice and we have solar plans and incentives to fit your power needs, clean up the planet and produce long term savings.
Due to the increase in power outages from high Colorado winds6 and our country’s failing grids, going solar is the right choice for savings and peace of mind when the power goes out. Our solar plans give you more control when your local grid overloads (which is happening more and more).7
The next-best-thing when you go solar in Boulder, other than saving the planet from harmful greenhouse gas emissions, is long term savings. When you choose our solar system lease, Sunrun BrightSave™ Monthly, you lock in at today’s energy rate for up to 25 years. No surprises when your bill arrives. For decades.
Also no high, upfront costs for the solar panels, equipment and installation. And you get more than just solar panels; worry-free energy with maintenance, insurance and peace of mind for two decades.
Purchase solar with Sunrun’s BrightBuy™ option and own your own solar panel system. When you purchase your solar system there are utility rebates in some parts of the state,8 there are property tax incentives and sales tax incentives9 -- and don’t forget about our government’s 30% tax cut, too. There are definitely additional savings for ownership. Again, our Sunrun technicians will walk you through everything. Read about Colorado's energy rebate program.
Or would you like to own your system for $0 down? Finance your system purchase with low, fixed monthly payments, competitive rates and no upfront cost with BrightAdvantage™.
