"Going Solar" in Alamosa?

Installing solar panels in Alamosa

Alamosa established itself as a major player in the advancement of solar energy when it unveiled the Alamosa Solar Generating Project in May 2012.

The 37 MW concentrated photovoltaic power station was the largest in the world upon its completion, producing enough energy yearly to power 6,500 homes. That energy is helping utility companies meet their required renewable energy standards, and preventing thousands of tons of carbon emissions from entering the atmosphere.

The example set by this facility is convincing more Alamosa residents and business owners to make the switch to solar energy. In Alamosa, where utility costs for many farmers can reach $10,000 per month to power devices during peak irrigation season, solar energy offers a respite from high utility costs.

Why go solar in Alamosa?
Access local incentives

Most residents of Alamosa receive power from Xcel Energy or the San Luis Valley Rural Electric Co-op. Customers of Xcel Energy can earn rebates for installing solar panels on their homes or businesses, allowing them to recoup a significant portion of their cost.

Currently, the Xcel Energy Solar*Rewards Program offers $0.11 per kWh of solar energy produced over the course of 10 years. For the typical 5 KW solar energy system in Colorado, this calculates to almost $7,000. Add in state and federal incentives, and you can slash the cost of going solar by nearly 50%.

The San Luis Valley Rural Electric Co-op does not offer any rebate program, though this may change over time as more customers demand solar energy.

Alamosa is a prime location for solar

The many sunny, clear days in Alamosa mean solar generation often exceeds expectations. Consider the town representatives of Alamosa, who are committed to charting an environmentally responsible and sustainable course for the future.

Within Alamosa are two major solar plants that power the waste water treatment plant and the city’s recreation center. Upon installation, council members were surprised to find that both plants are actually generating more power than anticipated.
