Solar electric rebate for households

JANUARY 2017: The City of Glenwood Springs has come to the difficult decision of needing to suspend solar rebates for 2017.

Glenwood Springs Electric purchases its wholesale power from the Municipal Energy Agency of Nebraska (MEAN), and MEAN has decided to implement a charge to its wholesale customers for all new solar added to the grid. This additional charge leaves the City with some unknowns as we go into 2017. It is with great hesitation that the City decided to suspend rebates for 2017. 

The City staff will be working with CLEER and other consultants to do some long-term electric utility planning in 2017. If you have comments or questions about the Solar PV rebates, please contact CLEER at 
970-704-9200.

Glenwood Springs Electric customers can still install solar PV systems on their home. Applications for connection must be pre-approved, and will be handled directly by Glenwood Springs Electric.

Most Glenwood Springs residents are still eligible for CORE solar PV rebates and for the federal tax credit.
