FRUITA, Colo. - Alpine Bank is partnering with a solar company this week to help a local family save money on their energy bill. Grid Alternatives is a non-profit organization providing solar training while also helping the community.


This family is the first applicant to receive solar panels in Colorado with this program. Organizers say the installation of these panels will save the family hundreds of dollars each year.


“This will help them save about $400 to $500 a year to put money toward their mortgage or toward college or toward putting groceries on the table,” said Grid Alternatives program manager Shirley Moore.


Grid Alternatives and Alpine Bank will be having a meeting discussing their future energy plans and more information about the program.


The meeting is Wednesday at 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Edgewater Brewery located a 905 Struthers Avenue.
