Established in 1989, Colorado Solar Energy Industries Association (COSEIA) is the award-winning nonprofit association leading Colorado’s solar industry. Our mission is to expand solar markets and to generate jobs and prosperity for the people of Colorado. Together with hundreds of solar business members we work to advance solar policy, remove market barriers, highlight emerging trends, and promote solar outreach & education.
We’re developing a national model for solar innovation and job creation. Colorado has a 30% Renewable Energy Standard and is the #1 state in the nation for solar jobs (per capita). And thanks to COSEIA’s successful efforts to help pass the Fair Permit Act (HB11-1199), Colorado has lowered solar permit fees and reduced the cost of going solar. There are tremendous opportunities in Colorado’s solar marketplace – and as a national leader Colorado often influences what happens in other states. But success in solar doesn’t happen by itself. It starts by joining COSEIA. Your support is urgently needed and greatly appreciated.
As the Colorado chapter of the national Solar Energy Industries Association, COSEIA represents and leads a wide range of solar-related businesses including manufacturers, distributors, dealers, installers, integrators, financiers, utilities, entrepreneurs, educators and others. COSEIA is governed by a nine-member Board of Directors that oversees the organization’s strategic priorities, budget and bylaws. Here are some of the highlights from COSEIA’s accomplishments last year to help make Colorado a national leader in solar.
