Fort Collins is producing more solar power than ever thanks to EcoMark Solar

April 16, 2018

Fort Collins and its surrounding cities are great places to go solar! Colorado brags about 300+ days of sunshine, making solar a very easy and logical choice for her homeowners. Solar in Colorado brings unique challenges – from the extreme temperature differences from winter to summer, to its wildlife, to the altitude. But we here at EcoMark Solar have the most experience designing, installing and maintaining residential solar systems in Colorado.

Fort Collins

And all areas within

75 mile radius of Fort Collins




The following Fort Collins’ area utilities allow solar energy on their systems and “net meter” the solar power produced:

  • Fort Collins
  • United Power
  • Poudre Valley Regional Electrical Association
  • Xcel Energy
  • City of Longmont
  • City of Loveland
  • Frederick Power & Lighting




EcoMark Solar wants every Colorado resident that wants solar to get solar, so we work with all of them.

All utilities working in Northern Colorado participate in Net Metering. Most offer monthly rollovers at wholesale energy prices, however the net meter credit policies of your particular utility are specific to them. Call for a consultation to find out what that means Net Metering means for you!

The Future of Utility Prices in Northern Colorado

The greater Fort Collins area is experiencing unprecedented growth and its utilities are experiencing more demand than ever. The utilities will be building on more capacity in the years to come. Those infrastructure costs will be passed on to the consumer in the form of increased rates. The standard inflation rate for electric power nationwide is 4% per year. Many Northern Colorado Utilities have raised their rates in excess of that in the last 12 months.*

  • * Fort Collins Utility is going to “Time of Day” billing which will drastically change the way their customers pay for power.
  • * City of Loveland raised their rates 4.6% in January of 2018


Solar Power is Inflation-Proof Power

Regardless the power rates being charged from the utility, when you own your own power through a residential solar system, you lock in your power rates for decades to come.

Ultimately, you get to decide – Who are you going to invest in: yourself or the utility?
