Solar Permit Fees Waived Until May 31

Don’t forget . . . the city’s waiver of permit fees for new solar panels ends on May 31, so if you are thinking about installing photovoltaic on your home this might be the perfect time to do it. A typical residential installation in Golden is a 4.5 kilowatt system. The average cost after Xcel energy rebates seems to be about $12,000, and the city’s waived fees will save you about a year on your payback.
