Solar Resources For Colorado & Wyoming Homeowners

As we reviewed in our blog, Tax Incentives for Homeowners Going Solar in Colorado, solar energy incentives are changing all of the time.  Most recently, the federal tax credit for solar systems increased to 30% of total installation costs and was extended for 10 more years of availability to American homeowners.

In addition to the federal solar tax credit, you may be able to reduce the cost of solar panels in Colorado and Wyoming with one or more locally available tax exemptions, rebates, and incentives. 

Colorado Solar Tax Exemptions

Homeowners in Colorado can save money on solar installations with two statewide tax exemptions: the solar sales tax exemption and the solar property tax exemption.

Sales Tax Exemption

To promote green energy adoption at every level, Colorado instated a Sales and Use Tax Exemption for Renewable Energy Equipment in 2006. Under this exemption, renewable energy adopters can purchase equipment like solar panels and wind turbines without any state sales tax applied to the transaction. Colorado currently has a 2.9% state sales tax, 100% of which is exempt in solar energy equipment purchases.

Property Tax Exemptions

Solar panels add value to your home, but homeowners in Colorado do not have to worry about this fact increasing their annual property tax. Residential renewable energy systems are completely exempt from Colorado property taxation, which means that their added value is not assessed during a home tax appraisal.

Rebates and Financing Programs

Colorado homeowners may also be eligible for local solar rebates and special financing programs that reduce the start-up costs of a renewable energy installation. Although qualification and availability are often limited by income and physical location, homeowners going solar in Colorado may seek out programs like the Boulder Solar Grant Program and Colorado Residential Energy Upgrade (RENU) Loan Program.
