We love the fact that Westminster’s city website has a section under Sustainability that helps its residents discover local energy rebates. That’s incredibly “forward thinking” as the saying goes. Sunrun™ feels strongly that providing this kind of value will help more homeowners go solar. We consider ourselves a forward-thinking and community-driven solar business, too, and support all alternative energy efforts across the U.S.1
In fact, our solar advisors are well-versed in all available incentives at the local, state and federal levels. You won’t miss a penny of possible savings when you go solar with Sunrun.
The most important factor in going solar is environmental savings; going solar helps save your city and the planet from dangerous greenhouse gas emissions. Westminster's mayor, Herb Atchison, is one voice out of thousands from cities, states, organizations and Fortune 500 companies across America who have committed to the Paris climate agreement.2
While the use of coal has gradually declined across our nation, Colorado unfortunately still uses coal for over 60% of the state’s electricity needs. And coal is becoming increasingly unaffordable while wind and solar energy is becoming more affordable. And even worse is that burning coal accounts for nearly 27% of Colorado’s dangerous toxic emissions.3
Although residential utility rates have risen 4% across our nation over the past 10 years,4 they have risen roughly 60% in Colorado over the past 15 years.5
Electricity rates go up and down throughout the year due to factors outside your control. There are grid failures6 (in some sections our national grid is nearly 100 years old), blackouts, and extreme weather conditions -- but for the most part you can expect your rates to steadily go up every year.7
However, you can take control of rising prices when you go solar. You can lock in at today’s energy rates for two decades when you get a solar system with Sunrun. Think about that for a moment. That years of energy at today’s prices. No hike, no surprise bills… just savings.
Our customers - thousands of them - have saved hundreds of millions of dollars with our solar systems. There are many options that allow you to save money today, whether you want to lease or own.
The best incentive? We do it all. Sunrun comes out to assess your location, roof angles and home energy needs. We file for permits and local, state and federal solar incentives and tax credits8 (we’ll help you find those savings!).
Once you become a member of the Sunrun family, our solar technicians (only the best) come out and install your system. They don’t leave until you are up and running and ready to enjoy solar energy and the savings along with it.
