Frederick, Maryland [RenewableEnergyAccess.com] BP Solar yesterday announced the availability of its BP Solar Home Solutions systems through The Home Depot stores in the metropolitan Denver and Boulder, Colorado, areas. The program enables customers to purchase complete, installed solar electric home power systems.The BP Solar Home Solutions program has been available since 2004 in The Home Depot stores in California, New Jersey and Long Island, New York. BP Solar and The Home Depot are now expanding it to other areas of the country where incentives have made solar electric power more accessible and affordable to a wide range of consumers.
According to Geoff Slevin, BP Solar VP of Sales & Marketing, “the goal of the program “is to make it simple for home owners to generate their own clean solar power.”
In Colorado, Xcel Energy electric customers can register to receive about 50% off the purchase price of a solar electric system through rebates and incentives from Xcel Energy’s Solar Rewards Program. Several local governments have also started further incentive programs.
