Green energy is still not very widely available from official government outlets – the best you can do right now is to sign up for green power with your local utility, but that’s about it. Colorado is planning on changing that soon though – a state representative from Boulder made a statement announcing plans to introduce a bill legalizing “solar gardens”.
According to the new plan, people who’re unable to provide their own solar panel installments will be able to buy into solar gardens built for this purpose, while still benefiting with the tax incentives associated with using green power. The green energy credits will be provided by Xcel Energy.
This bill will hopefully encourage more people to switch to green energy sources, as now those who can’t use their own installments for one reason or another can simply outsource their power production to solve their problems.
We can only hope this won’t be the last we hear of such cases, and other states – and countries – will follow closely behind.
