How Can Meraki Solar Help Drastically Lower Your Electric Bill?

In Colorado, the average electric bill is over $100 per month and can spike to over $200/per month during the winter. Fortunately, you don’t need to pay your utility company so much for your energy bills in Colorado.

What Solar Panels Work Best in Colorado?

Although you may expect differences in Colorado solar panels due to the relatively extreme climate, they’re the same high-quality panels used in other states across the country. Solar panels are all built to handle extreme heat and cold temperatures and often perform very well in winter.

Fortunately, you don’t need to be a technical expert or spend hundreds of hours researching residential renewable energy equipment to find the best options for your home. Unlike other solar companies, Meraki Solar will show you ALL your options and help design the best solar system for you and your needs. From start to finish, we provide a dedicated expert to help you understand your choices and ensure your home solar energy system is as efficient as possible.

How Much Energy Will You Get From Your Solar Panel System?

Most solar panels can generate between 200-400 Watts per hour, which can add up to more than 2kW per day of solar power. The size of your solar energy system, types of solar panels, and climate affect how much energy you will get from residential solar installations.

Fortunately, Colorado is closer to the sun due to its altitude, which means it gets more sunshine than most other states. Our local solar energy consultants can help you calculate how much solar power you need to cover your energy needs and provide the best solar system for your family.

Are Solar Panels Worth it in Colorado?

Colorado is at a high altitude, meaning it’s closer to the sun as a whole than any other state in the US and sees upwards of 300 days of sunshine annually. Your home energy systems will generate enough solar power in all seasons to power your home and business.

So, YES, solar panels ARE worth it in Colorado. And not only are they worth it, but they are an excellent investment when you consider the many tax credits and solar incentives Colorado offers eligible homeowners looking to switch to solar energy. If you’re still not sure about the benefits of solar panel installation, here are a few more reasons that you should consider:

  • Solar energy has positive environmental impacts and helps mitigate climate change.
  • A home solar panel system can increase the value of your property
  • When your home isn’t using the energy from your solar panels, you can sell that energy back to the Colorado solar grid.

As one of the premier Colorado solar companies, we will help you invest in solar for less. Find out what incentives you qualify for, including our unique, zero-down solar offer!

What do Solar Panels Cost in Colorado?

After utilizing a federal tax credit, a complete solar system can cost anywhere between $10,000 and $20,000. However, the average cost of solar can vary greatly depending on the size of your system, and the number of panels you install. Fortunately, for residential solar installations in Colorado, there are several solar incentives available to you with Meraki Solar.

Available incentives include property tax exemption, solar tax credit, and net metering programs to help you reduce the costs of your renewable energy system. Since every installation is customized for that particular property, there is no standard cost for installing a residential solar system and solar batteries. A Meraki professional can provide a free quote for your solar system after thoroughly assessing your wants and needs to give you an idea of the overall solar cost.

In addition to the Colorado tax incentives, CO homeowners have access to several solar resources that can lower the cost of solar panels even further.
