Consumer-Owned Solar Installation


Consumers interested in cutting their power bill by installing solar panels – please call our office first.

We want you to be an informed consumer before you buy a solar system, and we certainly want you to know all of your options and all of your costs before you install a system.

We’re happy to answer your questions. Know what you are buying before you buy.  Please be wary of door-to-door or third-party salesmen using their interpretation of SDCEA’s rate information, requirements and policies as a pitch for you to buy a product from them.

Call us, 719-395-2412. Ask to speak with our Energy Use Advisor about your solar proposal.  Or, send us an email at this link.

All solar installations must be inspected and approved prior to interconnection with SDCEA’s electrical system.

These are the pertinent policies and information you will need when working with SDCEA to install renewable energy systems on our power lines.

Please read all pertinent policies regarding net meter service prior to filling out the online application below.

Consumers must provide the disconnect switch and production meter socket per SDCEA’s Net Meter Policy, C-20 (in the net metering packet link below).
