Recent Review: Ecomark was just here at the house. They gave me five references, for two I got to talk to the women and they were very happy. We'll have the solar panels installed in October. They've even upgraded their product since they came out on April 19th, and they products have improved from 97% efficient to 100% efficiency. Plus were set for a 30% tax credit $27,408- now it's down to $26,312 dollars. They're also offering a 5% senior discount which brings it down to $25,000 It's the Energy freedom plan with 20 year financing and they also have a 15 year plan, and a 10 year plan. We can put down $4000 and our monthly payment is less than $146.00 and with the federal tax credit we'll be getting a few thousand dollars back. The panels will be black, and it will have a front guard. We can also include a critter guard to prevent animals to getting into it. They even include a snow guard, but we won't need that here. It includes a 25 year solar panel warranty. When the Solar Panels make more energy than we're using- for every 100 kilowatts we'll be reimbursed $8.43 which goes towards your next bill as a discount. Paul Harpole was a great sales man and a great guy. He didn't push us and gave my husband the references. The product just sells it self! He said he'll even be on cite during the install.

Recent Review: Solar Side Up provided an estimate for a roof top sloar panel system.  They were very thorough in doing this, but ultimately we chose to use another company.

Recent Review: Great group of guys. They are located in Denver so I was a little apprehensive that they would be prompt in getting the work done, but I was pleasantly surprised; they were all self-driven and worked hard to get the work done even though it was around Christmas and New Year's. At this point, we are all waiting on Colorado Springs Utilities to put the final meter in so that the system can get running.

I met one of their salesmen at an event in Denver. He insisted they could work with me needs in Colorado Springs but practically insisted that we were with Excel Energy which we are not. We emailed back and forth with information for him to work up a quote. Then he became pushy about meeting in person to give me the information. I asked that he email it. He continued to be pushy and made another reference to Excel. I told him that his repeated misunderstanding of our not having Excel as a provider was a problem. His return email said, 'Have a nice forever.'

I chose Triton Roofing and Solar from a co-workers recommendation and they support Vets. We started off getting a new roof due to hail damage. But since they also are in the solar business, we requested a presentation and decided to use them to install solar panels as well. Since they are a roofing company first, they put on the new roof but also prepped the roof in such a way to ensure solar panel installation was ready to go. Then the solar panels were installed. What a great experience. Their entire team did a great job for both projects. Triton took care of the paperwork for the Colorado Springs Utilities rebate for solar panels and I couldn't be more pleased. Every person I met, was professional, warm and they truly want to do a great job for their customers. I absolutely would use them again. I got to know the owners, Todd and Justin, as well as their team, Blake and Corrie, very well throughout this process and they are genuine people. This is a small local business to support!!

EPGE had the best quote of several solar companies and used good quality panels. EPGE explained what to look for in a solar panel, how shading effects performance, and how long panels last. EPGE also helped in applying for the solar rebate from CS Utilities.

Astralux completed installation of solar panels on 8/13/2009 at my house. I tried to pay the installers on that date. Thei nstallers would not take payment and stated that I would receive a bill. Two previous payments had been made to the Astrulux representative. The bill arrived in December with three months of interest. I paid the balance minus the interest and then received a bill for the interest. I talked to an Astralux accountant on 12/30/2009 who told me he would speak with the owner who was out of town. I spoke to the same accountant on 1/5/2010 and then to the owners wife and then the owner. The owners wife stated that according to the contract, they do not send invoices. But in fact, they do send invoices because they sent me an invoice in December. After speaking to the owner, he told me on 1/5/2010 that I owed no interest. I called the accountant on 1/6/2010 asking for a statement showing a 0 balance. He stated he needed to speak to the owner. In the late afternoon of 1/6, I received a phone message from the owner asking me to call him. I called him back at which time he told me that he mis-spoke on 1/5/2010 and that I did owe the interest. I was given no reason for his change in thought. In addition, during the installation, a panel was dropped onto my deck. When trying to catch the panel, an installer stepped on and broke my gutter. I have a neighbor and my husband who witnessed the dropped panel and broken gutter. At the time of the installation, the workers tried to fix the gutter but where not sure that the gutter was fixed. They left me a tube of silicone if it was not fixed. Because of a death in the family, I left Victor on 8/14/09 and did not return until 12/14/2009. At that time, I discovered that the gutter was not fixed and did leak. When speaking to the owner on 1/6/2010, I mentiioned about the broken gutter and asked him where I should send the bill for fixing my gutter. I asked if he planned to pay for fixing the gutter and he stated that he was not sure if he would or not.

Justin and Todd are very helpful and trustworthy. They provided different roofing options and then worked with our insurance company to ensure the original estimate came in line with the actual work and costs necessary. The crew could have been more professional (not terrible--we just have high standards), but Justin or Todd stopped by daily to remedy any issues. Also, after the significant snow accumulations last winter, we had a minor, external leak on an overhang--Todd and the foreman, Jesus, immediately came by to inspect the problem and fixed it. Todd and Justin also personally vetted any subs required, such as the electrician and furnace vent techs, to complete the jobs professionally and within code.

Due to the style and difficulty of our multi directional tile roof, Triton had to install our solar panels in 3 different arrays.  I attended a home show where I met Triton and initially began thinking about solar roof panels.  Next, I did extensive research in the field with regards to panels, transformers/inverters, battery back ups, warranties, etc. I contacted 7 total solar installers.  Triton was one of them, and was the last one I scheduled to visit our house and show me their product. I had tons of questions I presented to each of them... the same questions. Justin Baker, one of the Triton owners, did our presentation and spent several hours at our house explaining everything. After all, adding anything to a roof especially solar panels, is a major deal.  I needed to be 100% confident and comfortable with both the product and the company. I am personally one of the hardest sells a contractor of any kind comes across.  Justin took the time to make sure I understood everything, and brought samples of the actual products (panel, micro inverters, mounting brackets) to show me.  His company did a thorough review of the utility bills I provided and showed me how and where I would save based on the sun patterns at my house based on the angle of my different roof/potential solar arrays and my electricity usage. The detail of their reports on energy savings was spectacular.  Triton was the only company to do this.  I was able to see how the seasonal changes effected my electricity savings. They also did a thorough hands on inspection of the roof to see if we could even install panels.  He worked hand in hand with our utility company (Colorado Springs Utilities) and completed all paperwork with regards to installing panels and rebates.   I interviewed and had 6 other solar companies visit the house and show me "their stuff".  I was not impressed with any of them.  Not one of the companies was both a roofer and solar installer, and believe me, I searched far and wide looking specifically for this factor.  Several of the companies were rated good or better on other sites, with the BBB, etc.  Triton was the only true high quality roofer who also knows the solar business.  Some of the other companies provided basic sketches of what and how our panels would be arranged, including where the electric lines would run through the attic, etc.  Five of the 6 were of poor quality, and two provided sketches in pencil/colored pencil on kids graph paper. Besides the cost of the solar, the others either worked with other roofers/electricians or wanted me to find a roofer/electrician for them to work with if I really wanted that aspect covered at my expected quality. This was an additional fee. Two tried to sell me old inventory they had sitting around.  When I specifically asked about any building codes/fire codes all (but Triton) drew a blank and stated they would have to research that data.  Not something you want to hear from solar contractors who are actively trying to sell and install their product in your area.  You'd think they would do some research and at least be able to speak to the issue with professionalism. Most of the solar installers had not installed their panels on tile roofs, and wanted to "try" ours.  I know, right... One even talked about making short cuts (that involved building code / fire safety) and hoped the final inspection folks from the county wouldn't notice.  Triton was well versed in building code/fire safety and it showed.  They were able to break it down to my level of understanding.  Try getting an insurance company to cover a major catastrophe on your house, when contractors circumvented code whether intentionally or inadvertently. When I researched the quality and ratings of the roofers/electricians  the "other" solar companies worked with, I wasn't impressed.  Ratings and my perception of them  was that they were "C" performers at best. Some of the other companies didn't seem to have a good idea of when exactly they could work on my roof, and needed me to be flexible within several weeks, so that they could find a roofer to contract with.  They had no sense of project management.  When installing solar panels, and working with utility companies for rebates, you have to have installation done by certain dates.  You don't always have the flexibility you want/need. Why do you want a roofer as your solar installer?  Well, that's easy to answer.  The solar panels have to be anchored to the roof, underneath the tile/shingles, etc.  The anchoring needs to be done it a very specific way to ensure they can handle the wind speeds we get here. The anchors need to be sealed in a very certain way to ensure they keep out water.   Hire the wrong person, and you will get weak anchoring, leaks, mold, etc. when it rains/snows. If you don't notice the (sometimes invisible) problem until after it has done some major damage, potentially over several years, you are in trouble.  If you can't pinpoint the damage to an event/storm, and in many cases within a few months/year of the event, you may not be covered by home owners insurance.  Just ask me, I found out the hard way about water leaks in my attic (a year prior to solar installation).  I ended up spending over $10,000 of my own money to mitigate my attic from the significant mold that had built up and spread.  During my research, I talked with Deb at Colorado Springs Utilities-solar rebate section.  She was the most informative and professional person I had engaged, beside the folks at Triton.  Although a relatively new field/rebate, she was able to give me very detailed information and when pressed, a verbal list of companies that had worked with her customers for solar install and rebates.  At the time, Triton wasn't on the list. Wh4y you ask... What I learned was that they were a newer company.  That is the only reason.  Triton didn't try to learn about solar on the fly.  They took the time to learn it right, and hook up with GAF roofing/solar (see GAF.com for more info).  Triton took the time to find the US leader for quality products/warranties/training/certification with regard to roofing/solar products.  Triton has top notch safety awareness on the job both for themselves and others around them (i.e. my family, neighbors, kids).  They did an excellent job with clean-up during the day and at the end of the day.  They were very careful working around our landscaping. When Triton left each day, you couldn't even tell they were on my property. What I learned: - Triton was, and still is, the best choice for roofing and solar panel installation in the Colorado Springs and surrounding area. - Home owners insurance (with our carrier and many others) had no extra fees to cover the costs of solar panels on roofs.  It was included in the plan we already had.  - There are very few solar panel product companies (Triton uses Trina - one of the top 3 I found during research) that have excellent and lasting products with the longest and most responsive warranties.  Trina was my #1 after all of my research.  Triton helped me understand that fact and provided much of the information I needed to finish my own impartial research on top quality solar products (panels and micro inverters/transformers, etc.). - Triton was the only company at the time, that was GAF master elite certified.  A very hard certification to achieve and keep!  Just talk with a few roofers in the area and you will see for yourself. - Trina was the only leading company using micro inverters.  Micro inverters were relatively new on the market, and others were using other types of inverters/transformers. Micro inverters are the very small boxes that attach under each individual solar panel, and transform the solar energy into electric energy. Other types or inverters or transformers are attached to the house inside or outside, and are huge.  Other types of inverters/transformers hum and can distract and keep you awake at night.  How do I  know...  I have several friends that have different solar panels on their houses, and the research I did, often had reviews that mentioned the humming and vibration noises.  Micro inverters also maximize the energy captured because they change it into usable electricity right at the panel.  Think of hot water moving from the basement water heater up a story or two in a house.  It loses it's temperature the longer it travels through pipes.  The same concept applies to where the inverters/transformers are located.  Many were in large boxes that were on ground level in the garage or outside the house by the electric meter.  The farther they are, the more energy you lose.  With micro inverters, you don't need the large transformer box like things on ground level near the electric panel or meter.  Micro inverters are the most cost effective and are also big space savers. - Triton was the only company, that through GAF were able to use engineers that worked specifically with roofs, solar panels/products.  The engineers were another quality control /building/fire code check along the way to installing solar panels. There were no extra fees for working with the engineers.  They are build into the process! - Triton even helped me think about future solar install needs and designed our system with future installs in mind.  This will allow us to add extra panels without extra electrical work. After over 18 months now, I can still say that I am so glad I chose Triton for my roofing/solar install needs. We are realizing a faster payback on our solar investment than initially predicted through the Triton estimates of energy savings.  I have a hot tub and a  house full of teens who use more electricity than I'd care to admit.  The best part, when the teens move out, I will be making more energy than I use and will be able to sell it to the utility company.  My electricity bill will be 0. The utility company will owe money!
