"Going Solar" in Breckenridge?

Why go solar in Breckenridge?

Breckenridge is largely known for its pristine ski area, attracting thousands of outdoors enthusiasts each year. The renowned ski slopes might be an economic powerhouse in Summit County, but they rest on a delicate environmental balance.

Temperatures across the Earth are slowly rising due to increased carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Higher rates of emissions from fossil fuels are compounding this problem, increasing the negative effects of global warming.

In Breckenridge, this could mean less snow yearly, eventually impacting the town’s reputation as a ski destination. However, some residents understand these dangers, and are increasingly turning toward renewable energies to power their homes and businesses.

By installing solar panels, you have the opportunity to participate in a global effort to reduce carbon emissions. Thanks to advancing technologies and support at the local, state, and federal levels, going solar has never been a smarter decision.

Access to local incentives

Two main utilities serve Breckenridge – Xcel Energy and Atmos Energy. If you purchase electricity from Xcel, you’ll have access to a rebate program that significantly cuts down on installation costs.

Xcel’s Solar*Rewards Program offers eligible customers $0.11 per kWh of solar energy produced over a 10-year period. For the typical 5 kW system, this could factor to almost $7,000 by the end of the program’s run.

Unfortunately, Atmos does not offer incentives to go solar. With more customer demand for solar, this could change over time.
