Man, oh, man, there’s so much to love about Colorado: Skiing, Beer, Cattle Ranchers, Beer, Skiing. Did I say those last two already? My bad. In any case, add solar power to that Rocy Mountain short list.
Colorado is really in the top 2 of solar states, as far as incentives and net metering is concerned. (New Jersey could be #1. Yes, New Jersey.) The reason is that Colorado is not only offering some of the richest solar incentives, but also prices are very competitive among installers because of those high rebates.
Colorado also breaks the myth that it needs to be warm to have solar. In fact, solar is more efficient in cold weather. Just ask the people at our National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in Lakewood, CO, where solar geeks and scientists rule, finding new ways of harnessing the sun’s energy. On top of all that, if you’re interested in hands-on solar training, Colorado is home to one of the best solar learning institutions: Solar Energy International.
Needless to say, we at SolarPowerRocks.com love beer. And we also love solar! So Colorado rocks on two levels for us. But things change quickly in the solar rebate and incentive world, so we’ve just updated our Colorado State Page just for you.
Bottom line, you can now get an average 5kW solar PV system in the Boulder/Denver area of Colorado for around $11,900 after all of the rebates and tax incentives. Your electric bill that used to be $100 a month? It’s now an average of $28/a month. And the savings are only going to get better as regular coal fired utility rates rise over the next 25 years. Payback is conservatively around 12 years, depending on your particular energy needs and future electric rates.
Want more good news? We’ve expanded our installer network. So if you live in or near the great beautiful solar cities of Aurora, Beverly Hills, Boulder, Castle Pines, Castle Rock, Centennial, Commerce City, Englewood, Glendale, Greenwood Village, Highlands Ranch, Kellytown, Littleton, Lone Tree, Northglenn, Parker, Roxborough, Thornton, or Westminster, CO, we’ve got someone to give you a free quote to see if solar is right for you. It may not be right, but isn’t it worth “free” to find out? We think so, but we also think beer is a verb.
So beer in mind that solar power rocks in the Rockies and Colorado. Enjoy.
