Cheap Solar and Electric Vehicle Charging Station Grants

As part of its ongoing efforts to promote sustainability, the Town of Lyons is excited to provide updates on a few moving pieces.

Discounted Solar Program

In partnership with Namaste Solar, Boulder County is once again offering discounted solar installations for County residents. The program offers baseline pricing at $2.73/watt (for systems between 6.0 – 9.99kW), as well as financing options (1.99% interest, 12 year solar loans). Check out their website to see if you qualify for a no-cost, no-obligation site evaluation, to determine if your home is suitable for solar.

Discounted Electric Vehicle Program

In addition to discounted solar, Boulder County has struck a deal with Nissan, to provide discounts on Electric Vehicles. Details about this will be released in April.

Electric Vehicle Charging Station

The Town recently won two separate grants from the Regional Air Quality Council and Boulder County Economic Development Program, for an Electric Vehicle Charging Station. The station will be located near the Visitors Center. It will serve residents, as well as encourage visitors to spend time in town, while they top off their electric vehicles.

For more information on these or any of the Town's sustainability efforts, please contact Sustainability Coordinator, Toby Russell
