"Going Solar" in Severance?

Installing solar panels in Severance

As is common throughout much of Weld County, it seems that Severance is embarking on a love affair with natural gas and fracking. Extractive energy companies may be good for business today, but Severance must prepare for the coming bust.

Natural gas is a limited resource, and the wells will run dry within our lifetimes. Once they do, any jobs or economic stimulus brought on by natural gas companies in Severance will disappear.

Those bust moments are familiar to mining towns in Colorado’s mountains, which once also boasted large numbers of extractive energy companies. Fortunately, more Severance residents are reading the writing on the wall and turning to renewable energy sources to push the energy economy forward.

Solar companies in the United States are looking for towns in Colorado to call home, as the state ranks high in solar installations. Since solar energy is an unlimited resource, the coming solar boom will be here to stay, with no bust in sight.

By going solar in Severance, you demonstrate the area’s commitment to renewable energy and make the town more attractive in the eyes of those solar companies. With financial incentives to go solar on the local and federal level, you’ll find that going solar today is more affordable than ever before.

Why go solar in Severance?
Access local incentives

Depending on who your electricity provider is in Severance, you’ll have the option of several local solar incentives.

If you purchase electricity from the Poudre Valley Rural Electric Association, you can enter into the utility’s photovoltaic rebate program. Under the program you can earn back $1.50 per watt of installed capacity, up to $4,500.

Alternatively, Xcel Energy offers customers its Solar*Rewards Program. Solar*Rewards is a step-based program that provides varying levels of rebate payments. Each level has a limited amount of space, and, once filled, closes to new customers. Newer customers are assigned a lower-paying tier.

To discover which step the program is currently at, and your potential rebate, visit Xcel’s website and click “Current REC Prices and MW Confirmed.”

Insulate Severance from future energy busts

Natural gas is a historically volatile commodity. Where towns experience great economic growth during fracking, they also experience devastating downturns when those wells run dry. By making Severance a more attractive town to solar companies, you’ll help insulate yourself once fracking jobs leave the area.
