"Going Solar" in Eaton?

Installing solar panels in Eaton

Eaton’s agricultural community relies primarily on two major things for survival: self-determination and water.

Self-determination is apparent in the hard work that hundreds of Eaton farmers put in every day, but water is a more difficult topic to address – especially since so much is used for energy production in the area.

Driving through Ward County, it’s common to see hundreds of fracking wells dotting the landscape. Given the preciousness of water for Eaton, you might find it surprising to learn that the amount of water used annually in fracking could serve between 44,200 and 79,000 homes.

For residents of Eaton, that represents a disturbing figure. As water supplies run low, Colorado can’t afford to waste so much just to generate electricity, especially when other options are on the table. Alternative technologies like solar panels don’t use water to create electricity, and are becoming more affordable by the year.

Why go solar in Eaton?
Access local incentives

Electricity in Eaton is provided by Xcel Energy, which offers customers rebates for installing solar panels.

The Xcel Energy Solar*Rewards Program varies in the payments it makes because it’s on a step system. This means that as more customers sign up for the program, they fill up a specific level and then newer customers are moved to the next level.

The first level pays out $.15 per kWh of electricity generated over 10 years, while the final one will pay $.03 cents. You can discover the current step by visiting Xcel’s website and clicking “Current REC Prices and MW Confirmed.”

Protect Eaton from future water concerns

Going solar will help grow the industry, and convince other people to install panels on their own homes and businesses. As demand for solar grows, the need for nonrenewable energy sources will drop, helping to saving the Colorado water supply.
