Colorado Springs and its surrounding cities are great places to go solar! Colorado brags about 300+ days of sunshine, making solar a very easy and logical choice for her homeowners. Solar in Colorado brings unique challenges – from the extreme temperature differences from winter to summer, to its wildlife, to the altitude. But we here at EcoMark Solar have the most experience designing, installing and maintaining residential solar systems in Colorado.

The Future of Utility Prices in Southern Colorado
The greater Colorado Springs area is experiencing unprecedented growth and its utilities are experiencing more demand than ever. The utilities will be building on more capacity in the years to come. Those infrastructure costs will be passed on to the consumer in the form of increased rates. The standard inflation rate for electric power nationwide is 4% per year. Colorado Springs Utilities has raised their rates almost twice the national average in the last 12 months.*
*August 2017 raised 5.9%, January 2018 raised 1.9% for a total of 7.8% in the past 12 months.
Solar Power is Inflation-Proof Power
Regardless the power rates being charged from the utility, when you own your own power through a residential solar system, you lock in your power rates for decades to come.
Ultimately, you get to decide – Who are you going to invest in: yourself or the utility?
