"Going Solar" in Thornton?

Installing solar panels in Thornton

Thornton residents are helping to drive economic growth in the region, as increasing demand for solar energy gives rise to new businesses that boost the local economy.

Thanks to emerging technologies and business practices from companies like Ascent Solar, the prices of modules are dropping – meaning installers can offer you better deals when installing panels on your home or business. For residents of Thornton, more affordable panels combined with solar incentives means installation costs are lower than ever before.

Why go solar in Thornton?
Access local incentives

Two major electric utilities serve Thornton residents, with each offering special incentives for going solar. Customers of Xcel Energy may enter into their Solar*Rewards Program, which distributes solar rebates based on how much energy their homes or businesses produce.

Currently, Xcel offers $0.11 per kWh produced yearly for 10 years, for systems up to 10 kW. Xcel seems poised to continue this rebate program for some time, having just recently expanded the program’s yearly maximum rebate limit.

If you aren’t an Xcel customer, you most likely receive electricity from United Power – the other major utility in the area. United Power’s rebate program differs from Xcel, in that they offer an upfront rebate rather than one spread out over time.

Customers of United Power can earn $.60 per watt installed, up to 3 kW, or $1,800. In addition to local incentives, there are state and federal benefits for going solar that can reduce costs even more.

Reduce emissions and help Colorado lead the new energy economy

As we consume our coal, oil, and natural gas resources, energy prices will rise and Colorado’s environment will only worsen. Burning these fuel sources releases carbon dioxide and other greenhouse emissions into the atmosphere, impacting air and water quality across the state.

Thornton has the opportunity to greatly decrease these emissions, and generate cheap, renewable energy at the same time. As one of the most populous cities in Colorado, Thornton residents must band together to initiate change toward renewable energy, helping to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels.

If you’re interested in cementing Thornton’s reputation as a solar leader, contact solar panel installers in your area. Learn more about how you can offset carbon emissions and generate cheaper energy by requesting more information from an installer.
