"Going Solar" in Salida?

Installing solar panels in Salida

Salida’s economic survival is tied to the surrounding environment and a stable climate. The Arkansas River, which runs through the city, is the main provider of water for agriculture in the community, not to mention the main source of drinking water for residents.

The Arkansas River is fed by snowpack some 60 miles away from Salida, but climate change is unfortunately threatening that snowpack. Salida’s city government notes that snowpack in Colorado above 8,200 feet is expected to decline between 10% and 20% by 2050.

That change in snowpack could seriously impact Salida and all who rely on the Arkansas River for farming and survival. Global warming has accelerated over the years in part thanks to fossil fuel use, which adds to carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere.

By reducing our reliance on those fossil fuels, we can slowly reduce or negate the effects of climate change and protect Salida for generations to come. That’s why more of Salida’s residents are embracing clean energy sources by installing solar panels on their homes or businesses.
