Is Solar Worth it in Colorado?

Why Solar Panels Are a Smart Choice for Colorado Homeowners

Solar energy is surging in popularity across Colorado, with enough installations to power over half a million homes! As you notice more solar panels adorning rooftops in your neighborhood, you might be contemplating whether it's time to embrace solar energy too.

Exceptional Solar Potential in Colorado

In Colorado, particularly around the Pueblo area, we're fortunate to enjoy over 300 sunny days annually. This abundant sunshine not only brightens our days but also provides an excellent opportunity for generating substantial solar energy.

Benefits of Solar Energy in Colorado

Stabilize Your Electricity Costs

Nationwide, electricity costs are climbing. If you're a Black Hills Energy customer, you've likely experienced the impact of time-of-use rates during peak summer months. Moreover, if you're charging an electric vehicle at home, your energy consumption—and consequently your bills—are increasing. Solar panels can significantly lower these costs right away, offering protection against future rate hikes.

Solar Affordability Is Better Than Ever

While electricity prices are rising, the cost of solar installations in Colorado has decreased by 43% over the last decade. We can assist you in exploring local rebates and incentives, maximizing your savings when you switch to solar.

Long-Term Financial Gains

Investing in solar is not just about immediate savings; it's a long-term financial strategy. The solar panels we install come with a warranty and typically generate power well beyond that. Most homeowners in Colorado reach the break-even point within about 8 years, leaving decades of profit and savings on energy costs.

Unmatched Energy Security

Beyond the financial perks, the resilience provided by a home solar plus battery storage system is valuable. As extreme weather becomes more frequent and energy demands grow, the likelihood of power outages increases. A robust solar system ensures you maintain power during disruptions, offering essential backup when you need it most.

Environmental Responsibility

This year's extreme heat has brought the urgency of the climate crisis into sharp focus. By installing solar panels and battery storage, you're taking a significant step toward reducing carbon emissions and helping steer the U.S. toward a cleaner energy future. The more we adopt solar, the less we rely on burning fossil fuels, benefiting both our planet and future generations.
