Installing Solar Across Colorado
With a reputation for quality installation, expertise, and five-star service, our team’s design and installation of residential, commercial, and utility-scale solar energy systems started in the heart of the Midwest. Now we’re in Colorado – and rapidly expanding our service delivery areas.
Solar in Colorado
Coloradans are passionate about the environment – and their commitment to supporting renewable energy is demonstrated by the fact that Colorado was one of the first states in the U.S. to have a Renewable Energy Standard. At Nelnet Renewable Energy, we share that passion – and we’re excited to be a renewable energy service provider in Colorado.*

For government entities and businesses, there are short-term lease options that require $0 out of pocket and can help maximize long-term savings.
Opportunities for Coloradans to Save With Solar*
Claim a Credit on Your Federal Income TaxTaxpayers may be able to claim a tax credit on their federal tax return of 30% for qualified expenses on a solar system providing electricity to their home. Business taxpayers may qualify for a similar tax credit of 30% or more on a solar system they own. Consult your tax advisor to determine whether this credit is available to you and for what amount.
Earn Credits for Excess Energy Your System ProducesFull retail rate net metering may provide customers with credits for the excess generated energy from their solar system. If your solar system produces more energy than you’re using, you may get credits applied to your monthly electricity bill at the discretion of your utility provider.2 Net metering can vary, depending on your utility provider.
Save With Other State and Local IncentivesColorado is a great place to live when it comes to going solar! Utilities and local municipalities may offer additional solar incentives that property owners can take advantage of to save even more. Depending on your situation, here are some of the incentives and programs you may qualify for:
- City of Fort Collins Rebates.
- Renewable Energy Property Tax Exemption.
- Xcel Energy: Income Qualified/DI Community Program.
*Consult your tax advisor to determine which credits and incentives apply to your situation.

Steps to Solar
During this meeting, we’ll share details about your system and answer any questions you may have about your project and solar energy.
Our site surveyor will visit to take precise measurements – and share them with our design team to help with the completion of your system design.
Along with a design packet and approval from a licensed structural engineer, we send required documents to your municipality for a building permit, which is granted at the discretion of the municipality, or authority having jurisdiction (AHJ).3
Once permitting is approved, we’ll get your installation scheduled. Most residential installations take from one to three days – and we’ll show you around the system once installation is complete.
