Fort Collins Solar Installer

These crisp mornings and cooler days are signaling the end of summer and the start of fall – the best time of year to go green and invest in solar for your home or business. Your local Fort Collins solar installer, Sandbox Solar, is here to tell you why: 

    1. Rebates are ending SOON! In case you haven’t heard yet, the federal tax incentives for solar will be reduced at the end of this year. So if you want to take the full 30% tax credit for the cost of the install, your panels must be fully installed by the end of the year. Your local Fort Collins solar installers here at Sandbox Solar have limited availability through the end of the year – get on our schedule while you still can!
    2. The weather is perfect! The fall is the best time of year for your Fort Collins solar installer to work, because the weather is hard to beat. We rarely face weather delays, such as thunderstorms, extreme heat, or snowstorms, and can complete your system with little slowdowns. Plus these sunny fall days are perfect for soaking up the sun’s power!
    3. Time-of-Day Pricing is here to stay. Last year, Fort Collins Utilities rolled out a new pricing structure called Time-of-Day (TOD) pricing that charges you more for the energy you use during peak hours. It’s safe to say that this model is here to stay, but by going green and investing in solar, you can eliminate your utility bill and avoid paying these higher prices.
    4. Rates are good! Depending on how you plan to finance your solar panel system, whether it’s through a home refinance, a home equity loan, or an energy loan, interest rates are really good right now overall. This means that you can finance your system at a lower interest rate and lock in that rate for the life of the loan. Your system will end up being cheaper overall, because you’ll be paying less in interest. Interest rates vary based on your credit, the type of finance option you choose, and your lending institution. If you have questions about financing your home solar system, contact us
