Installing solar panels in Steamboat Springs

The international ski destination Steamboat Springs places environmental responsibility in high regard.

Leaders in the town are calling for more citizens to reduce their use of fossil fuels, and embrace renewable energy technologies like solar. While solar panels were once unaffordable, costs have steadily dropped over the past several years. Since 2008, in fact, solar panel prices have decreased by 80%.

That’s making it possible for people in Steamboat Springs to install solar panels on their homes or businesses. As more people go solar, they’ll reduce the town’s collective need for fossil fuels and help protect the region for years to come.

Fossil fuels are contributing to global warming in Colorado, which could lead to economic problems for ski towns down the road. Snowmelt is already occurring two weeks earlier than it did in the 1970s – a trend that scientists predict will continue.

By installing solar panels in Steamboat Springs, you’ll join a growing movement to reduce fossil fuel emissions and turn back the tide of global warming, preserving the region’s reputation as a ski town.

Why go solar in Steamboat Springs?
Access financial incentives

Most residents of Steamboat Springs purchase electricity from the Yampa Valley Electric Association, which does not currently offer local incentives to go solar. This might change in the future, as Colorado increases the amount of renewable energy that utilities are required to purchase or generate.

Still, you can access solar incentives at the federal level to bring down your costs. You can claim a 30% tax credit for your system installation from the government, making going solar more affordable than ever.

Protect Steamboat Springs’s reputation

Steamboat Springs is an international ski destination that must protect its legacy in the coming decades. If snowpack decreases and snowmelt continues to move forward, ski seasons will be cut short and impact that legacy.

By going solar, you reduce the region’s need for coal, natural gas, and oil, offsetting carbon emissions in the area.
