Colorado: Our Process

ROOFTOP SOLAR


1. Apply now!

2. If it looks like you might qualify, we’ll contact you to arrange a preliminary phone screening.

3. Following your preliminary screening, if it looks like you qualify for our program and live in an area where GRID CO is actively working, GRID Alternatives will set up a meeting to discuss the details of the program and energy efficiency, help you complete an application, and answer any questions. The application will include the following:

  • Completed Solar Affordable Housing Application
  • Copy of previous year's federal income tax return
  • Copy of most recent electricity bill
  • Proof of homeowners' insurance

4. If your application is approved and:

  • if GRID has current openings, we’ll schedule a construction visit to determine if the roof, sunlight exposure and house direction are suitable for a PV-solar installation. If the site is appropriate and you decide to proceed with the solar installation, a system will be designed for your home.
  • if GRID does not have current openings, we'll notify you of your application's approval and put you on a waitlist for future opportunities.

5. We’ll schedule the installation. After the system installation is complete, the system must be inspected and the utility interconnected before the system becomes operational.

6. You start saving energy and money using your new solar electric system!
