"Going Solar" in Trinidad?

Installing solar panels in Trinidad

Colorado is currently in the middle of a renewable energy boom. Solar installations throughout Colorado are on the rise, with over 70 megawatts of solar capacity added in 2012 alone.

Those installations brought total capacity to 281 MW, making Colorado fifth in the nation for solar installations. That rank is further bolstered today, as more towns decide to support solar and embrace the new energy economy.

Trinidad could join that growing movement if more of its citizens installed solar panels on their homes and businesses. By going solar in Trinidad, you make an investment in the future, and cement Colorado’s reputation as a solar leader in the country.

Why go solar in Trinidad?
Access financial incentives

Living in Trinidad, you most likely purchase electricity from the San Isabel Electric Association or TriState. Unfortunately, neither utility currently offers rebates for solar installations, but that could change in the future.

Be sure to check with your power provider before going solar to verify no new programs have started. Even aside from incentives at the local level, you can reach them on the federal level.

You can claim a 30% tax credit on the cost of your system from the government if you install panels. That significant tax credit helps make your system more affordable and quickens the pace it takes to recoup your expenses.

Insulate yourself from rising prices

Throughout Colorado, electricity rates are rising. Xcel Energy, another large power provider in Colorado, estimates that electricity rates will rise by 34% by 2020.

Rates are on the rise in part because natural gas prices are highly volatile, and may rise and fall with little warning. By installing solar panels, you’ll maintain a low electricity bill that remains stable. In fact, you can even earn money back through Colorado’s net metering program if you generate more electricity than you use.
