Colorado Solar Incentives, Rebates and Tax Credits

Solar Savings Types Value of Savings
Colorado Solar Renewable Energy Credits (SREC) Based on product
Federal Solar Tax Credit  30% of the final cost of the solar system

**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.

SRECs 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.

Federal Solar Tax Credit

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. The 30% tax credit applies as long as the home solar system is installed by December 31, 2019. Starting in 2020, the value of the tax credit will step down to 26%, and then again to 22% in 2021. After 2021, the tax credit for residential solar ends.4 

There’s an Easier Way to Save on Solar in Colorado

Despite Colorado’s many solar incentives, most of them are only available to those who purchase their system. Here at Sunrun, we understand that everyone's financial situation is different, so we give you a choice of payment options—all of which help you go solar and save money.
