How It Works for You
Colorado is known for its beautiful outdoors and its residents’ passion for music and the environment. Joining a community solar garden is a great way to help keep Colorado colorful. At the same time, you’ll support the production of clean, renewable energy – and save money on your annual energy costs. In addition, you:
Don’t have to worry about installing solar panels on your rooftop.
Don’t even need to own your roof (or have one).
Pay no upfront costs, maintenance, or insurance fees on solar panels.
Sign-up is easy.
All you need is five minutes and your utility bill.
Enter your ZIP code to see if there are any community solar gardens near you. (You must be an Xcel Energy customer.)
