Denver Neighborhood Map
Stapleton is the former home of Denver’s airport before the construction of Denver International Airport. Once the airport was decommissioned, the area became a large, vibrant neighborhood that reflects New Urbanist principles, mixed-use zoning, and plenty of open space. Stapleton’s 80-acre Central Park is the 3rd largest public park in Denver.
The Stapleton Green Team hosted their first Earth Day Festival on Saturday April 23rd. Though the weather was blustery, people came from around the city to join in the fun.

Introducing Solar Benefits Colorado, a new solar discount program being offered to employees and retirees of Boulder County, the City and County of Denver, the State of Colorado and other local governments in the Denver/Boulder metro area. Sponsored by ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability USA this limited time program allows employees to pool their buying power to secure significant discounts on a range of financing options (both purchase lease) for residential solar installations.
Good news. The Solar Benefits Colorado employee evaluation committee has selected local firm REC Solar to provide residential solar at $3.18 per-watt – more than a 20% discount off the average market installation costs (among the lowest pricing in the U.S)!
Next Steps. If you have not signed up for the Solar Benefits Colorado group, please visit the program website to register: www.mygroupenergy.com/colorado. Once registered, you will be connected with the REC Solar team to schedule your site evaluation and receive a proposal. Please note that registration does not obligate you moving forward.
Learn More. Informational webinars are being scheduled throughout August. Details will be posted soon on the News page of the program website this week, please stay tuned.
Spread the Word. If the group collectively installs a minimum of 250 kilowatts (approx. 45 systems), REC Solar will provide each homeowner with an additional $500 incentive. Please help inform your co-workers of this limited-time employee benefit!
If you have any questions, please contact Jessie Denver (firstname.lastname@example.org), the Solar Benefits Colorado program technical advisor.
