How to I select the best solar panel contractor?

If you’re looking to get solar panels installed on your roof, always get at least three quotes.  

Check out Xcel Energy’s tips on hiring a solar contractor or United Power’s list of questions to help you navigate your selection process. 

Use a pre-approved list of businesses, like the one provided by Boulder County’s EnergySmart program. Even if you don’t live in Boulder County, all of the contractors listed have demonstrated interest in helping residents complete renewable energy projects. The Colorado Solar and Storage Association can also help you navigate potential contractors. Or check out the contractors authorized through the Colorado RENU loan program.
