What you may not have heard about is another project Google is taking part in—a project which will benefit many homeowners who want solar roofing on their Colorado home. Google has recently partnered with SolarCity to create a fund to finance $750 million in residential solar projects. This fund is to cover the upfront cost of solar panels and installation for homeowners in 14 states. Usually one of the biggest downsides it the initial cost of the panels and installation, which is what makes this program so interesting for many Boulder homeowners. It this model, SolarCity will install the panels and lease them to you to use. They will also maintain the solar panels for you during the lease.
Solar panels greatly reduce the carbon footprint of your home, and can save you money in the process. If you’re a Boulder resident, or if you live anywhere in the Denver area, this is definitely something you’ll want to look into.
