Sunlight Solar Energy is proud to announce a new partnership with the Weatherization Assistance Program in Colorado! The Arapahoe County Weatherization Division selected Sunlight Solar as one of three photovoltaic (PV) system installers for their program. Together with Xcel Energy and the Colorado Energy Office, our goal is to provide free PV systems, installation, and maintenance for 300 qualified low-income homes in Arapahoe and Adams county over the next three years.
What is weatherization?
Weatherization provides long-term energy and financial savings for homeowners seeking to upgrade their electric systems. The process involves conserving energy through the installation of cost-effective technology (such as solar panels) that reduces energy bills and improves efficiency. Weatherization can even help moderate indoor temperatures.
Electricity comes at a high price in today’s data-driven world. For those who want to minimize their energy costs and move toward a more self-sustained electric system, solar is the smart, eco-friendly way to go. Solar panels can eliminate 75-120% of a household’s monthly electric bill, providing homeowners with an average savings of $20,000-$30,000 over their system’s lifetime. Even after 40 years, our panels will retain 80% of their original power output. At Sunlight Solar, taking the next step toward renewable energy has never been easier.
