Over 300 days of sunshine a year makes Colorado solar energy a plentiful resource and makes installing solar panels to generate electricity or to heat water, a poignant choice.
Colorado’s RPS has a goal to enable all investor-owned utilities to produce 30 percent of their electricity by 2020 from renewable energy. With the RPS, the utilities are offering significant incentives and rebates so that they can meet their goals.
