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:


  1. Exchange your excess energy production for kilowatt-hour-based credits, which can be applied to future energy bills
  2. Receive a per-kWh cash payment


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:

Utility Company
Rebate Amount
Colorado Springs Utilities
$.20 per watt (after April 1, 2020 $.10)
San Miguel Power Association
$.25 per watt (max out at $750)

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 and 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.


With the Federal Investment Tax Credit (ITC) of 30% and local incentives, Colorado residents are jumping at the chance to become a part of the renewable energy movement. We’re excited to help you throughout your solar journey and hope to help you make a positive impact on the environment while saving you thousands on your electricity bill!

Overall our experience with in getting a solar system installed by Blue Raven has been exceptional. Our sales rep (Zander) did a great job laying... out the options for us and he was very patient in answering all of our questions, never applying any pressure for us to make a quick decision. Blue Raven was also patient while we had our old solar system removed from our roof and had much needed roof repairs completed -- all the while Blue Raven provided helpful advice along the way. System was installed quickly after our roof was ready. Install team was very professional and efficient, completing the job in less than a day while carefully protecting the areas of our property where they worked. The layout and design of the new system has proved to be much cleaner and better looking than our old system because this team took the time to do the job right. We were impressed that Blue Raven was able to arrange Inspection of the system by our local building department less than a week after the installation and we are now looking forward to an equally quick turnaround by Xcel Energy approving our system for connection to the grid. That is the one of the beauties of working with Blue Raven as they effectively do all of this project coordination for you. All of the parts of the Company work very efficiently together and always keep the customer informed regarding each step.read more

The installation crew was right on time, thorough, courteous and knowledgeable. Couldn’t ask for a better installation experience.

“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.”

“Free Power!!

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.”
