Empower makes solar more affordable
Reducing your electric consumption by making energy-saving improvements before going solar results in a smaller-sized system saving you thousands in upfront costs and interest. Bundling solar with pre-solar energy efficiency upgrades can make your solar power generation system more affordable, and help you begin generating savings from day one.
San Isabel Electric’s Empower program can help almost anyone make power more affordable with energy efficiency and energy conservation upgrade projects such as:
- Whole house & HVLS fans
- Electric thermal storage heating
- Water heaters
- Heat pumps
- Insulation & air sealing
- Generators & generator plugs
- Electric vehicle charging
Empower’s streamlined approach will manage all facets of the project. We use your prior energy usage data and a home energy assessment to identify energy efficiency or conservation projects that suit your lifestyle and budget. We can also help oversee product selection, contractor selection, financing, permitting, installation, inspection, even maintenance if needed years down the road. On-bill financing is also available. Empower offers low interest, long- and short-term financing options for your energy efficiency projects.
There is no extra cost to utilize the Empower program to oversee your energy efficiency or conservation improvements, even if you don’t buy electricity from San Isabel Electric. San Isabel Electric’s board members feel everyone should have an opportunity to be more energy efficient and save money.

Tying Solar into the Electric Grid
Most solar systems are connected to the electric grid. These systems are called “grid-tied”, meaning that electricity can flow to and from the grid.
When your solar array generates more power than your home needs, the excess is sent out onto the electric grid, where it is used nearby. Likewise, when your solar array isn’t producing enough electricity to meet your needs, you’re able to consume electricity from the electric grid. This is called net metering.
Net metering policies make compensation for your solar electricity production possible, allowing you to offset all or part of your electric consumption with that production. In Colorado, net metering allows for a one-to-one credit of your solar electric production against your energy consumption from the electric grid.
