Find out how much you can save by going solar in Colorado.

Colorado, a western U.S. state, has a diverse landscape of arid desert, river canyons and snow-covered Rocky Mountains, which are partly protected by Rocky Mountain National Park. Elsewhere, Mesa Verde National Park features Ancestral Puebloan cliff dwellings. Perched a mile above sea level, Denver, Colorado’s capital and largest city, features a vibrant downtown area. There are so many reasons that solar is becoming an energy option of choice for financially and environmentally savvy consumers and commercial enterprises.  The Colorado power market, while friendly to solar, is driven primarily by utility incentive programs.Other benefits to consider:

  • Reduced electric costs
  • Higher resale value for properties
  • Investment with guaranteed rate of return that increases as the cost of living goes up
  • Guilt free use of electricity for greater comfort, efficiency and convenience
  • Contributing to a cleaner, healthier planet.


Colorado’s vast fossil fuel resources include the Niobrara Shale, with resource estimates running as high as 2 billion barrels of oil.

In 2015, 60% of the electricity generated in Colorado came from coal, 22% from natural gas, and 18% from renewable energy resources.
Colorado’s Renewable Energy Standard requires investor-owned electric utilities to provide 30% of electricity sold from renewable energy sources by 2020, with 3% coming from distributed generation.
In 2015, Colorado’s grid-connected solar photovoltaic capacity of 599 megawatts was the ninth largest in the United States, and the state obtained more than 6 times as much net generation from utility-scale solar facilities as it did just 5 years earlier in 2010.
