Candelas™ Solar Offerings
As one of Colorado’s premier green-living communities, Candelas offers a number of environmentally friendly features that you aren’t likely to find in any other new homes in Colorado. From our selection of sustainable new homes designed to fit just about any budget, to our energy efficient community amenities, Candelas has everything you’re looking for.
One of the first things you’ll notice about Candelas is our use of solar power throughout the neighborhood. The planned solar offerings throughout the community show that Candelas is committed to sustainable living, as well as offsetting energy costs associated with the operation of our common areas. Solar power is good for the environment and good for your wallet. What could be better?
Some of the solar offerings included at Candelas are:
- Solar tiles in the streetscape and entry monuments
- Solar streetlights
- Solar-powered ID signs;
- Solar powered mailbox kiosk lighting
- 15 kilowatt rooftop photovoltaic system atop our recreation center
- And more to come!
In addition to our community-wide solar offerings all new homes in Candelas come solar ready, meaning they are designed to be more easily retrofitted with solar power PV systems in the future, if your home is not already built with solar power by your builder. Solar power is abundant, good for the environment, and is becoming less expensive to use. Solar power also provides homeowners with protection against future electricity cost inflation. Solar power and our focus on delivering smart, sustainable living is just another reason why living forward at Candelas is so attractive.
