Colorado’s Solar Business Booming

Solar companies in Colorado are experiencing a boom in business, now that customers can get thousands of dollars in rebates for installing photovoltaic panels. Xcel Energy’s rebate program started in March and has paid out more than $2.5 million to homeowners and businesses. It is an outgrowth of Amendment 37, the renewable energy standard voters passed in 2004. Ryan Warner talks to Blake Jones, president of Boulder-based Namaste Solar Electric.
