Why Go Solar
Going solar in Colorado is not only a smart financial decision today but a stable, predictable investment for years to come. In 2022, solar panels are no longer a luxury purchase. Significant improvements in solar technology and reductions in installation costs have given Coloradans the power to make a positive environmental impact while reducing their reliance on local utilities.
Reduce or Eliminate Your Electric Bill
Powering your home with renewable solar energy can significantly reduce your dependence on utility companies and lower your monthly energy costs.
Better yet, if your home solar system produces more energy than you need that month, your Colorado utility company will give you credit on your next electric bill. That means on those few cloudy days when your solar system isn’t producing enough power, you can apply solar credits to your monthly electricity bill to reduce or even eliminate the out-of-pocket cost.
Renewable Energy Helps Offset Your Carbon Footprint
There is no denying that going solar has a dramatic impact on our journey to a more sustainable future. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, the average home in Colorado uses 10,649 kWh of electricity per year. By switching to solar, a single home can have the same carbon emissions reduction effect as planting 125 trees and eliminate the burning of over 5,000 pounds of coal per year.
Solar Technology Has Improved Greatly
Since the invention of the first usable solar panel in 1954, solar technology and solar panel efficiency have evolved rapidly. In less than 70 years, solar panel efficiency has increased by more than 100%.
Recently named one of the World’s Most Innovative Companies, Zenernet is making solar smarter with the latest smart home technology. With our easy-to-use monitoring portals, you can conveniently view real-time and long-term solar production stats from any device. In addition to our innovative monitoring systems, we also offer an array of smart home add-ons to help you take control of your home energy use and get even more value out of your solar investment.
Build Equity in Your Home
Not only does solar power help you save on your utility bills, but it can also increase the value of your home. Recent studies show that installing solar panels in your home can increase the value of your home by up to 4.1%. With the median home value in Colorado nearing $500,000 in 2021, that’s a premium of more than $20,000.
Offsetting your carbon footprint, adopting the latest technology, lowering utility costs, and building equity on your home are just a few of the reasons why Colorado residents are investing in solar with Zenernet.

Are Solar Panels Worth It
For decades, Colorado has been a champion for renewable energy generation – with more than 30% of its energy coming from renewable sources in 2020. As one of the sunniest states in the country, Colorado residents can comfortably generate solar power throughout the year.
The Sunny State of Colorado
On average, the Centennial State receives 255 sun-filled days per year and nearly 5.5 hours of peak sunlight per day – making Colorado nearly twice as sunny as the average state. With Zenernet home solar systems, Colorado homeowners stand to generate up to 1.5 kilowatt-hours/day – enough to significantly offset your carbon emissions and live comfortably without the worry of high electricity bills.
Colorado Solar Access Laws and Renewable Energy Standards
Since 1979, Colorado’s solar access laws have been protecting residents’ rights throughout the state. These regulatory policies restrict homeowners associations (HOA’s) from enforcing covenants that prohibit homeowners from installing or accessing solar within their community.
In addition to protecting residents’ rights, Colorado became the first state in the U.S. to enact a renewable energy standard. This standard requires utility companies to sell a specific percentage of electricity from renewable resources – driving the nation’s $64 billion energy market closer to a greener future.
Choosing The Right Solar Panels
For Your Home
When it comes to choosing the right solar equipment for your home, there is a lot to consider. Solar Panels – the most visible component of your system – are not one size fits all. Solar panels vary by type, appearance, performance, and cost.
In addition to the panels, there are several other essential components to your home solar system, including but not limited to the inverter, battery, and racking system. When it comes time to decide on the right equipment for your home, it’s important to remember that every home and location is unique.
At Zenernet, we work with you to design the perfect solar system for your unique needs. We partner with the leading solar equipment manufacturers on the market today to source the best quality solar equipment available. These partnerships allow our team of experts to create a custom combination of components for your home, so you only pay for the solar system you want – nothing more.

Tax Credits and Exemptions
Going solar doesn’t have to be a financial burden. With Zenernet, many homeowners can switch to solar and start saving right away with federal and state incentive programs.
Since implementing the Federal Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC) in 2006, the U.S. solar industry has grown by more than 10,000%. Due to the success of this program, homeowners will continue to benefit from this tax credit through 2024.
In addition to the federal solar tax credit, Colorado has its own set of solar incentives and rebates programs to help homeowners make the switch to solar and start saving money on their electricity bills right away.
Tax Exemptions for Colorado Solar Panels
There are two tax exemptions available for Colorado solar panels. Under Colorado’s Sales and Use Tax Exemption for Renewable Energy Equipment, residents are exempt from paying sales tax on all home solar system components. Second, under the Property Tax Exemption for Residential Renewable Energy Equipment, residents are exempt from paying additional property tax on the increased value of their home after installing solar.
Colorado Net Metering
Colorado has a generous net metering policy for residents with home solar systems. Net metering is a policy that gives residents credit on their electricity bill for every kilowatt-hour of energy that their solar panels produce. In Colorado, if you make more energy than you need, the unused electricity returns to the electrical grid, and you receive a credit from your utility company on your next electricity bill.
Colorado Solar Rebates
Colorado solar rebate programs offer cash incentives to residents who install solar panel systems in their homes. Depending on location, utility provider, and the solar system size, a resident can qualify for rebates ranging from $400 to $4500.
