Solar tax credits and incentives in Colorado

Solar renewable energy credits, or SRECs, are another way that Colorado helps homeowners save on solar.3 However, SRECs are only available when you purchase your system, and that can get complicated fast. That’s why Sunrun is here to make your life easier with our solar lease, BrightSave™. We’ll hold the SRECs and pass the savings onto you in the form of a lower kWh rate that pays for the power, not the panels. You get all the perks of going solar, without the risk of ownership.

In addition to the Colorado state solar incentives, you’ll also be eligible for the federal solar tax credit, if you buy your own solar system outright. The federal solar tax credit gives you a dollar-for-dollar reduction against your federal income tax. Currently, the residential federal solar tax credit gives you a dollar-for-dollar reduction against your federal income tax equal to 26% of the final cost of solar energy systems you install on your home. Starting in 2021, the tax credit will step down to 22%. After 2021, the tax credit for residential solar ends. 4
