4 Factors to Consider When Hiring a Company to Install Solar Panels in Colorado
So you’ve been persuaded by all the benefits of installing solar power panels on your Colorado rooftop — the energy savings, the tax incentives, the added resale value, the environmental stewardship, the cool factor (in both senses of the word), to name just a few.
Now it’s time to decide who you’ll hire to do the installation. It’s an important choice because, as we’ll see below, this is a product you’re going to live with for the next twenty or thirty years, if not longer.
So what should you look for in a solar power company? Here are four of the most important considerations:
The great thing about installing solar power panels is that it’s a one-and-done installation. When properly installed, your solar panels should go to work for you on day one, and you shouldn’t need any major maintenance for the next 20 to 30 years
But getting solar panels that work — and work well — requires installation from a team of people who know what they’re doing. Amateur or do-it-yourself installation usually means bringing in experts after the fact to fix problems (which can range from issues with the panels themselves to your home’s electrical system and beyond).
The solar power team at REenergizeCO is staffed entirely and exclusively by experts in the field.
- We do not hire outside contractors.
- We have installed solar panels on hundreds of homes in Colorado.
- David Stevens, who oversees our entire solar division, comes to us from James Madison University, where he earned a degree in Integrated Science and Technology.
- REenergizeCO is an approved partner with Xcel Energy and Energy Star, as well as various county-funded programs, and we are certified by BPI and LEED AP.
- Our experts understand solar power inside and out, from the practical side of installation to the underlying science that makes it all work — and they can explain it to you in easy-to-understand terms.
While we’re eager to tell you all about our experience and credentials, we also believe there’s no better testament to our work than the people who’ve hired us in the past.
At REenergizeCO, we’re proud of our reviews. You’ll find links to them all over our website. Here are just a few, complete with video testimonials from real homeowners who’ve hired us in Colorado.
In fact, in 2016, we won the award for the “Best of HomeAdvisor,” where we have more than 50 reviews, a Top Rated badge, and have even been screened & approved by HomeAdvisor as a safe and reputable service provider for more than 5 years.

Reviews are among the most important things you should look for in a solar power company. You can find more of our customers’ reviews online at Angie’s List, Facebook, Google Reviews, and Yelp.
3. Labor Warranty
Reviews are important, but nothing gives you peace of mind like a warranty.
REenergizeCO’s solar panel installations come with a 25-year protection-based warranty. We also include 10 years of proactive system monitoring as a bonus at no additional cost.
This labor warranty, coupled with the fact that our solar panel installations do not involve any moving parts, leaves you with nothing to worry about and zero to do… for decades.
Solar panels aren’t all made equal. Studies have shown that higher-quality panels yield greater energy savings and add more to home resell values (particularly for higher-end homes or in energy-conscious markets like Colorado).
We only use high-quality materials. “Doesn’t that translate to higher prices?” you might ask. Not necessarily.
At REenergizeCO, we focus on custom solar installations, designed to give you just the amount of solar power that your home needs — not more.
There’s no point in paying for a bigger system than you need. We can even make cost-effective modifications to your home’s ductwork, sealing, and installation to reduce the size (and the cost) of your solar installation, all while still using higher-quality materials.
Our customers have found this to be more effective and affordable than the cookie-cutter model of installation that many other service providers use. We also offer several different $0-down financing options, available at 7, 12, 15, and 20 years, with loan payments that can be fixed for the entire term of the loan.
Our mission is to make high-quality materials available for Colorado homes of any size and for homeowners on any budget.
