Colorado Rebates

The state of Colorado has several discounts and incentives to promote renewable power and energy efficiency programs. Depending on the electric utility company, an one-time installation rebate up to $6,000 and an ongoing power production incentive can drastically reduce your power expense. This can be combined with the 30% federal energy tax credit. Here are the details about the rebates available to Colorado homes and businesses.
