Vail Valley: Active Energies launches community solar program

Daily Staff Report
Vail, CO, Colorado

Active Energies Solar, a Minturn-based solar design and installation company, is launching a community-based discount program for Vail Valley customers.

Active Energies will encourage the installation of new solar energy systems throughout the community by offering discounts on all newly contracted systems and free systems for local families or organizations that need reduced energy bills.

“Active Energies has always maintained strong ties to the community through volunteering, non-profit work, and other donations,” company president Megan Gilman said. “We hope this limited-time program will allow Eagle County home and business owners to install solar in a year that was otherwise difficult for a lot of people. All you have to do is find one more person to install solar and you’ll begin saving money on the cost of your system and theirs. The more people who install systems, the larger the discount we provide for everyone. For every five systems that are contracted this month, we are going to install a free system within the community.”

Active Energies will host a Sept. 10 launch party for the new program with free drinks and appetizers at its offices at 102a Main Street in Minturn from 5 – 7 p.m. For more information, call 970-306-4233 or e-mail
