Xcel Energy - Solar Rewards Program

(Updated by Xcel Energy Feb'09)

At Xcel Energy, we work to deliver the power you need while conserving our natural resources. Solar photovoltaic (PV) electricity generation is a clean and sustainable source of renewable energy for Colorado. But one size does not fit all, so we offer three rebate categories for different PV systems. The Solar*Rewards program provides incentives based on the size of the system you install at your home or business.

Residential and commercial customers of Xcel Energy electric service in Colorado can apply for Solar*Rewards rebates on small and medium systems. Small systems generate 0.5 kW to 10.0 kW DC, and medium systems produce 10.1 kW to 100.0 kW DC. Larger Colorado businesses may qualify for rebates through an RFP program on large systems that generate 100.1 kW to 2 MW DC. See the individual program pages for more information.
