Why go solar in Golden?

Golden has a long history of supporting solar energy.

Since 1977, the city has been home to the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) – the primary research center for renewable energy development. Researchers at NREL focus on helping to improve the efficiency of solar panels, allowing them to become more competitive with other energy sources.

NREL’s presence has had an impact on Golden’s attitude toward solar, convincing the city and many of its residents to make the switch to renewables. Walking the streets of Golden, you’ve likely noticed solar panels adorning many homes and local businesses, such as the Golden Hotel.

Joining with others who are making the switch to solar has never been easier, thanks to a number of federal, state, and local incentives. Explore some of the reasons to go solar in Golden, and contact installers to learn more.

Access local incentives

Living in Golden, you most likely purchase electricity from Xcel Energy. Xcel offers solar rebates to those who install panels, allowing you to recoup a portion of your installation costs.

Xcel’s Solar*Rewards Program distributes rebates based on how much solar energy you generate over the course of 10 years. Currently, the rebate rate is set at $0.11 per kWh of solar energy produced – or roughly $7,000 over 10 years.

Factor in state and federal incentives, and you can cut your installation costs by almost 50% in most cases.

Help support local jobs

The solar energy industry has the potential to change the Colorado landscape – both figuratively and literally. Not only is solar energy the economically responsible choice, but an environmentally responsible one as well.

Organizations such as NREL support over 2,300 jobs in Golden, contributing significantly to the local economy. As these employees work to increase solar efficiencies and benefits, manufacturers and installers are able to sell more of their products to residents of Golden.
