Benefits of Working with a Northern Colorado Solar Installer

  2. Support Our Local Economy – Local solar installers hire local crews, and your investment stays right here in our community.
  3. Local Insight – Local solar installers know the city and state tax rebates and incentives you’re eligible for and can help you maximize your investment.

National Solar Installers

We’d be remiss if we didn’t acknowledge that there are cases in which working with a bigger, national solar installer might make sense for your project. As you decide which company is right for your project, be sure to consider the following factors:

  1. Speed – National installers often have bigger installation crews that can potentially start your job sooner. As you decide between a local and national solar installer, the timeline of the project could be an important factor to consider. Check to see which providers can complete your job within your timeline.
  2. Scale – Similarly, if your solar job is exceptionally large, a national solar provider may have more crews available to complete your job. Ask companies about their ability to complete a large-scale project within your time constraints.
  3. Financing Options – While local solar providers often have partnerships worked out with local financiers (Sandbox Solar is thrilled to work with the locally established Elevations Credit Union), some of the bigger companies offer in-house financing that might make sense for you, depending on the cost and size of your project.

The bottom line is this: either way, solar is a big investment, and it’s wise to do your due diligence, interviewing and comparing many companies before you decide which will best serve your needs. Deciding between a local solar provider and a national installer is the first step.
