Increase Rooftop Solar for homes and businesses

Strategy Details: Increase Rooftop Solar for Homes and Businesses

Problem: Golden cannot meet its 100% renewable energy goal by 2050 at its current pace of private investment. Less than 3% of the community’s energy usage comes from renewable energy. Solar systems produce most energy and the offer the best potential of all the available renewable technologies in Golden. Intent: While utility-scale solar is becoming more widely used, on-site renewable energy is a key component of making progress toward high performing or net zero buildings. Currently, solar is a requirement for all new multi-family and commercial construction projects.
