"Going Solar" in Windsor?

Installing solar panels in Windsor

Hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, has taken off in Weld County. As of March 2012, there were approximately 174 oil and gas wells located within Windsor town limits.

While proponents claim these fracking sites are well regulated and safe, the truth of the matter is we don’t really know. Natural gas companies refuse to disclose what chemicals go into fracking fluid, and each site releases high amounts of methane emissions into the atmosphere.

In short, fracking companies are preventing information about how the practice affects your health from getting out. That’s not an appropriate response for many people in Windsor, who are getting worried about the new fracking sites appearing in the town.

That’s why more and more Windsor residents are installing solar panels on their homes or businesses, reducing their collective reliance on fossil fuels that need fracking to extract.

Why go solar in Windsor?
Access local incentives

If you live in Windsor and purchase electricity from the Poudre Valley REA, you can enter into the company’s Photovoltaic Rebate program.

Under the program, you can receive a solar rebate of $1.50 per watt, up to a maximum of $4,500. Additionally, you may claim a 30% tax credit on the cost of your system from the federal government.

Reduce reliance on fracking

Colorado’s legislature has committed to an “all of the above” energy policy that includes using methods like fracking to extract fossil fuels.

Unfortunately, that’s an unsustainable practice that only has limited viability. While fracking could be harmful for the health of those near wells, it will also only provide jobs to the area for as long as natural gas wells remain full.

One day, those wells will dry, and companies that have harmed the region for years will simply disappear. By switching to solar panels, you can reduce your reliance on these harmful practices and make sure your electric bills remain stable when natural gas runs dry.
