In 2007, Nyland contracted with Namaste Solar to install solar panels on more than two-thirds of our rooftops. It was up to each homeowner to decide whether they wanted to invest in a privately-owned system for their house. For each private system installed, Namaste gave Nyland a larger discount towards community-owned systems to be installed on the common house and wood shop. Our systems range in size from 1.5KW to over 9KW on the common house. The combination of a group discount with Namaste Solar, Colorado tax rebates, and Federal tax incentives made the purchase of these systems very reasonable with a short payback period. And working with Namaste has been wonderful.
