Colorado is nicknamed the Centennial State because it became a state in 1876, 100 years after the signing of the Declaration of Independence. Home to the first cheeseburger, the first rodeo, the longest continuous street, the largest natural hot springs pool, and the world’s largest flat-top mountain, Colorado is not only a great place to visit, but also a great place to live. Home to almost 6 million people, the state is noted for its diverse landscape of mountains, canyons, rivers, desert lands, forests plains, and plateaus, as well as its environment-loving residents.
Colorado is also known for being a leader in sustainability and green initiatives. One of the most eco-friendly states in the nation, the Centennial State embraces solar and all the benefits it has to offer. It is one of the best states to make the switch to renewable energy, with solar rebates, tax exemptions and a great net metering program, homeowners in Colorado will save big when they put solar on their roof. Let’s jump into all the potential savings:
Colorado utilities companies have established effective net metering policies, allowing customers to save with any excess energy they produce. Xcel Energy offers the best net-metering program that allows you to use your excess production in two ways:
Through Colorado’s net metering policies, Colorado homeowners can get the most bang for their buck when installing solar. They can even make some money if they learn to make smart energy choices and cut their electricity usage.
Many Colorado utility companies offer solar rebates that can save homeowners some big bucks. Here are two current examples:
In Colorado, any renewable energy equipment is sales, use, and property tax-free. Thus, you will not have to pay any additional fees to the government even though you are adding value to your home.
Any new home buyers who put solar on their roof are eligible for a state program that will help you pay for your mortgage for 120 days. By adding energy efficiency upgrades and a renewable energy system, you could qualify for $750-$3,000 in savings.
Less than 3% of the current U.S. population are enjoying the benefits & savings of solar energy. Our joy is knowing that our customers are saving money and reducing their carbon footprint. We want the same for you.
Our Colorado customers will save between $15,000 and $50,000+ over a 25-year period depending on the size of their system and their current home energy use.

“True to their word! Blue Solar was professional and dependable.
[The sales rep] held true to every word he said. He was dependable and reliable. The follow up is almost instantaneous and we couldn’t be happier. The service team that did the installation was courteous, on time and cleaned up any mess made. Literally felt like white glove service. We read other reviews and decided that Blue Raven was the perfect fit for us. Blue Raven should be very proud of the team that we interacted with. Excellent representation of their brand.”
THE JENNINGS FAMILY
When we bought our first home in Colorado we were keen on going as green as possible… We got a quote from another solar company, whose plan seemed poorly designed and would not produce 100% of our electricity usage. When we met with Blue Raven, it was a totally different story. The design made sense, and was estimated to cover 114% of our usage! Installation took only 1 day! As soon as March we saw the production numbers jump through the roof.
As of June 1 we’ve had 3 months of 100%+ production and our electric bill is as low as it can go (we are now only paying for the $15/mo utility connection fee). Blue Raven even pays the loan for the first 18 months to ensure you aren’t paying for electric and the loan simultaneously. Great service, great people, great system. No complaints!”
“We have been 1000% satisfied with our solar panel system. We were impressed with the knowledge that the sales rep had about the Blue Ray solar system. He answered all of our questions pertaining to the complete solar panel system and the financial advantages to us as owners. The system functions exactly as promised. We tell all of our family members and friends about our system and how much money we are saving. Our daughter liked what we told her about the advantages of installing a solar system on her home and she installed your panels on her home. They were very pleased with the system installed on their home. We were happy to receive a $250 check for referring to your company.”
“Very professional and easy to work with, without being pressured
I was approached by a number of solar companies to go “solar”, however the deals being offered by them required I sign there and then on the dotted line otherwise the deal would evaporate. Blue Solar allowed me to review the proposal and documents on my own time. When I had additional questions, they were happy to meet and clarify. At no time was I pressured into signing. Once I had signed the process was very easy, they dealt with the finance, HOA approval for installation. The Installation team were also professional. They walked me through the installation and how to operate the system, etc.”
