With uncertainty of 2017, there are some things to look forward to in Northern Colorado. The Federal Tax Credit was extended and will continue to be 30% through 2017, Solar Energy Prices are predicted to go below $3.0/Watt for large residential systems, new everyday technology such as lawn lamps are becoming cheaper, and in case you missed it – a Great Article by Jacy from the Coloradoan features: Solar power gaining in Fort Collins.
What kind of influence will the new administration have on Solar?
Solar Energy is becoming a Non-Partisan issue. From our personal experience at Sandbox Solar as well as other influential figures in the community. We have noticed that no matter what your political views are, the sun clearly has everyone’s interests. Whether that is energy independence, going green, or financial investments, Solar has everyone playing in the sun. Solar has now employed 77% more workers than the U.S. coal mining industry, and that number continues to exponentially rise. China plans on investing $362 billion in renewable energy, and Elon Musk (CEO of Tesla) has joined Trump’s Strategic and Policy Forum. All these factors for us indicate that Trump may not go all in on Renewables, but it may be an even playing field for all energy sources. In which case, let the sun keep shining on solar.
