Harness the power of the sun

Interested in installing solar on your property, but not sure where to begin? For a second year in a row, Mountain Village is partnering with Solar United Neighbors and Telluride Mountain Village Owners Association to bring a money-saving solar energy co-op to our residents. Participants will also receive a $2,500 rebate for installation. Additional funds will be available to deed-restricted properties for a $5,000 total rebate.

The Solar Energy Incentive Program is closed for 2022! Please click the link below to learn more about the 2022 solar co-op.

Participation in our Solar Energy Incentive Program is easy! Offset a portion of your home energy use with a renewable energy source. The Town of Mountain Village and Solar United Neighbors will be there to assist along the way.

The first 20 properties to sign up for Solar United Neighbor's co-op will receive a $2,500 rebate from Mountain Village when a solar array is installed. Additional incentive funds are available for deed-restricted properties, up to a $5,000 total rebate.

If a member waives their rebate, the funding will be contributed to the deed-restricted housing rebate fund
