The Time is Right to Go Solar

Now is a great time to go solar in Colorado. Costs have dropped dramatically and many homeowners can go solar for little or no money down. You can enjoy clean renewable energy and eventually have free power from the sun. Going solar is a very direct way you can combat the threats of catastrophic  climate change. The Solar Friendly Communities program, which works with cities and counties to make it faster, easier and more affordable to go solar, helps cut some of the permitting red tape and delays in order to further reduce costs.  That’s why 16 Colorado solar companies have signed up for the Solar Friendly Communities Discount Program to offer $500 off every solar system sold to a customer in a certified community. Watch the video and learn how you can benefit!
