"Going Solar" in Lakewood?

Installing solar panels in Lakewood

Solar energy offers the potential to drive future economic growth throughout the country, but only if local governments take steps to simplify the process for consumers.

In Lakewood, Colorado, that’s exactly what’s happening. Leaders in Lakewood are implementing citywide policies to help solar grow.

Lakewood offers an online checklist system for residents and businesses seeking solar permits within the city, simplifying the permit process. They also now offer quick over-the-counter permitting, and ensure inspections happen promptly – quickening the installation process.

The Colorado Solar Industries Association has recognized the steps Lakewood has taken to simplify the process of going solar for residents, recognizing it as a Solar Friendly Community.

“We work hard in Lakewood to ensure that homeowners and businesses can accomplish improvements to their buildings in a timely manner, and this award shows how responsive we are during the construction process,” Lakewood Mayor Bob Murphy said. “I’m also proud that our responsiveness contributes significantly to supporting solar installations, which further the city’s sustainability goals.”

By adopting policies that reduce the time required to go solar, Lakewood is helping to drive down costs and ensure more of its residents have access to affordable, clean energy.

Why go solar in Lakewood?
Access local incentives

Most Lakewood residents who go solar receive incentives from the largest utility provider in the area – Xcel Energy. Xcel offers solar panel customers a rebate program known as Solar*Rewards.

Under Solar*Rewards, you can earn a rebate of $.11 per kWh over the course of 10 years – greatly reducing the overall costs of going solar. Add these savings to incentives like net metering and federal tax credits, and you can slash installation costs by roughly 50%.

Help the government save money

As more people go solar, pressure will rise for state and local governments to do the same, especially in tight financial situations where every penny counts. By supporting expansion of solar policies, you’ll reduce the utility costs of local government buildings.

The Denver Federal Center located in Lakewood features 34,564 solar panels that help generate electricity for federal offices and over 6,000 workers. The panels save an estimated $700,000 per year in electricity costs – meaning more tax dollars re-invested in the local community rather than corporate utilities.

All solar panels were installed by local businesses throughout Lakewood, helping to boost the local economy. If you’re interested in doing your part to boost Lakewood burgeoning solar industry, contact installers in your area to learn more. Remember to review the installer you work with to help inform other curious Lakewood residents about the installation process.
