BuildZoom recently used solar power building permits for residential, commercial, and utility-scale projects to rank the nation’s 40 largest cities, and Denver ranks fifth in the country.

Based on the estimated number of solar power systems per capita, at 6.22, Denver ranks only behind San Diego (14.64), San Jose (10.07), Phoenix (8.71) and the Riverside, California area (8.55)


The U.S.average for the number of solar power systems per capita is only 2.26.

Colorado has mandated that at least 30 percent of energy be renewable by 2020, and we’re well on our way. We are grateful for a state that works toward these goals. Check out Alaris’ Gratitude Corner and be sure to follow us on Twitter.
