"Going Solar" in Aurora?

Installing solar panels in Aurora

If you want to install solar panels in Aurora, you’ll find that the local government has taken many steps to simplify the process.

For any home or business owner looking to go solar, installation and permitting fees represent a major bureaucratic headache, forcing you to navigate labyrinthine government websites. Instead of simply browsing through local requirements established for solar energy systems, many people get lost along the way – confused by technical jargon and ineffectively designed web pages.

Aurora has taken steps to streamline this process, speeding up the permitting process, making it more affordable, and launching an easy-to-use website for consumers to discover exactly what they’ll need to present when applying for permits.

Their efforts have been so successful that the Colorado Solar Energy Industries Association recently recognized Aurora as Colorado’s second Solar Friendly Community behind Denver. More residents are taking advantage of these friendly policies, exploring what it takes to install panels in Aurora.

Why go solar in Aurora?
Access local incentives

Xcel Energy provides the majority of electricity to residents of Aurora, and subsequently offers the main incentive to go solar in the city. Xcel’s Solar*Rewards Program has offered solar rebates to customers since 2006, distributing over $270 million in incentives across the state.

When installing a solar panel in Aurora, you can earn $0.11 per kWh of production for the first 10 years through the program. The average solar energy system in Colorado hovers around 5kW, which generates roughly 6300 kWh per year – or nearly $700 in rebate rewards for the year.

Couple these savings with federal and state level incentives, and you could earn back your installation costs in only a handful of years.

Support the continuation of green policies in Aurora

Aurora has already shown a commitment to renewable energy, but public demand for solar must continue for friendly policies to remain in place. Aurora’s commitment is perhaps best represented by the large solar energy systems in operation at three of the city’s government facilities.

Combined, these three systems reduce electricity purchased from commercial power companies by 460,200 kWh per year. This means less of your tax dollars support energy produced by gas or coal, which harm Colorado’s air and water quality and contribute to global warming.

You can show your own support for these policies by installing solar panels at your home or business. As Aurora generates more energy from solar sources, local communities in the city will engage in more solar-friendly initiatives that drive others to install solar. For example, in 2006, just one solar permit was issued in Aurora, compared to 2012, where 313 were issued.
