Want to lead Colorado's transition to solar energy?
As longtime Colorado resident John Denver once sang it, "Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy." Sunshine on rooftops from Denver to Colorado Springs and throughout the state is making our customers happy by helping them save money on their utility bills. From the mountains to the arid plains, Colorado's vast lands and strong sun present a realistic opportunity for its citizens to decrease its reliance on traditional, non-clean, non-green energy sources. Dividend Finance has enabled Americans in every state to save money by going solar. While energy from the grid isn't as expensive as energy in Hawaii, the majority of homeowners in both the densely populated metropolitan areas and more rural outskirts can benefit from how cheap solar power has gotten. Come find out how the EmpowerLoan can help you own your energy today! Not sure if solar makes sense for you? Give us a call and find out. Our bet is you'll end the call asking excitedly, "so you're telling me there's a chance?!"

How Going Solar in Colorado Works
Step 1: Sign up online
Step 2: Talk to a solar specialist
Step 3: Check out your custom design
Step 4: Relax during installation
Step 5: Watch your savings grow
Colorado is a great state to go solar and maximize your savings. Aside from saving money on your electric bill, there are two other key incentives that help solar ownership in Colorado make sense: 1) the 26% federal tax credit and 2) Net metering.
First, the federal government offers a 26% tax credit which is available in all 50 states. This credit is applied to the federal taxes you pay each year, thereby lowering the net cost of your solar system, and has been extended to last until at least 2020. This credit is a great benefit of going solar: money that you would otherwise pay in taxes can now be used to own your solar system sooner. It is important to note that you can only reap the benefits of the federal tax credit* – which can cover up to 26% of your system's cost – if you own your system directly (instead of leasing it or choosing a Power Purchase Agreement). With the Dividend Finance EmpowerLoan, you own your system and you get all of the economic benefits of going solar in Colorado.
Finally, like many other states, Colorado utilities have Net Metering policies which allow homeowners to be credited for extra energy fed back to the power grid. If designed optimally, a homeowner can expect to offset 100% of their current electricity use while also having some left over to sell back to the grid.

The combination of the 26% Federal Tax Credit and the ability to offset the cost of electricity from your utility company make going solar in Colorado a home run (down the line in Coors Field).
When you begin to generate your own solar power, your utility bill can drop significantly. How much you can save will depend on the size of your solar system, your electricity usage, your current utility rates, and other factors. Our team and partners can design a system for you using remote assessment tools and can present you with a system designed specifically for your home to give you a sense of your expected solar savings.
