According to the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), Colorado currently ranks 11th in the country for solar installations.

Colorado residents who wish to install solar energy systems can interconnect to the grid under traditional net metering.

Vivint Solar will service the Denver and Boulder area and set up a sales office in Centennial, Colorado.

Vivint Solar announced that it plans to re-enter the Nevada market to bring its affordable residential solar systems to residents.

Vivint Solar announced its intention to restore operations in the state following the Nevada Legislature's passing of Assembly Bill 405 and stated commitment by Governor Sandoval to sign the bill into law.

Vivint Solar closed its operations in Nevada in 2015 following regulation that changed solar net energy metering rules and the state's primary utility reaching its net metering cap.

AB 405 reinstates a policy that allows Nevada residents to be reimbursed for excess rooftop solar generation, while providing additional rights to protect consumers and their solar energy system investments.
