"Going Solar" in Rico?

Installing solar panels in Rico

Rico’s pristine environment is increasingly under attack from the realities of climate change. The town’s tourism economy relies on people across the country visiting the region for its numerous outdoor activities, like skiing and hunting.

Unfortunately, skiing and hunting are highly reliant on consistent weather patterns. Skiers need adequate snowpack to carve down mountains, and the migratory elk are staying in higher elevations throughout the year due to milder weather.

These changing weather patterns are in part driven by Colorado’s reliance on fossil fuels that give off carbon emissions. If more Coloradans made the switch to renewable energy sources like solar, it could reduce and even negate many impacts of climate change.

However, that switch must be a group effort undertaken by all in Colorado and the United States. By installing solar panels in Rico, you join the growing movement to reduce fossil fuel use in the state.

Why go solar in Rico?
Access financial incentives

Depending on whom you purchase electricity from, you may have access to a local solar incentive. If you’re with the La Plata Electric Association, you can enter into the utility’s renewable rebate program.

The renewable rebate program gives out $.40 per watt of installed capacity, up to a 10 kW system. Additionally, you can claim a 30% tax credit on the cost of your system from the federal government, further reducing your installation costs.

Join the solar movement in Rico

Solar energy is picking up steam throughout the country, but especially in Colorado. The state is already ranks fifth in the country for solar installations, with that number growing as others make the switch.

You can help lead that switch in Rico by installing solar panels on your own home or business. As more people go solar, we’ll reduce our collective reliance on fossil fuels and keep Colorado sustainably-focused for years to come.
