The other night I had the privilege of kicking off “Locally Curious” with my friend Mark Younkins to discuss residential solar technology. In this conversation we touch on solar energy in general in Colorado and what the advantages and disadvantages are in our specific region. How big are solar panels? Is solar simply a niche consumer market, or is it a growing market steadily making its way into the traditional single-family residence? In the real world are people switching to solar due to eco-conscience mindsets, or is it because it will save them money in the long run? How do you pay for a solar panel system? We dive into these topics and more in our 20 minute conversation.
