Concept Solar began as an Electrical business back in 1975. Our shop originally was located in Boulder Colorado, one of the hot beds of Solar technology and development. Over the years, as our interest and skill at installing solar grew, we expanded to cover a growing interest in this clean energy.
Currently we have three Colorado licensed Master Electricians in house, with total of 77 years electrical experience. When we install solar equipment, we personally handle the installation of the solar array and associated equipment; including the electrical hook-up. Not having to contract with an outside electrician (any solar installation hook-up requires a licensed electrician) gives our clients added confidence as well as a seamless schedule during installation. We provide the electrical and any other associated permits and handle the communication and paperwork with the power company for a turn-key project.
Our goal is to provide our clients with a clean project, state of the art products, and quality workmanship that we can feel good about, and that will serve you for years to come. References available.
Why Install solar?
Solar energy is one of the best investments we can make. However, when we ‘go solar, what is it we are really investing in? True, a solar system does pay for itself. After your system has paid for itself, it pays you back. If the solar craze of the 1970s had continued in its momentum, todays home buyers would be asking how much the house pays per year instead of its operational costs. So from a strictly financial or monetary stand point, solar may be a great investment. For many, this is reason enough to install solar energy. But consider the real advantage to solar energy. Many U.S. communities have to import fossil fuels (oil, natural gas, etc.) to provide electricity. The cost of these fossil fuels can add up to billions of dollars. And every dollar spent on energy imports is a dollar that the local economy loses.
Renewable energy resources, however, are developed locally. The dollars spent on energy stay at home, create more jobs, and foster local economic growth. Renewable energy technologies are labor intensive. Jobs evolve directly and indirectly from the design, manufacture, installation, and even marketing of renewable energy products. In turn, the wages and salaries generated from these jobs provide additional income in the local economy. Renewable energy companies also contribute more tax revenue locally than conventional energy sources. This says nothing of the dramatic positive impacts these technologies have on our environment. Renewable energy technologies are generally friendlier to the environment than conventional energy technologies, which rely on fossil fuels. Fossil fuels contribute significantly to many of the environmental problems we face today – greenhouse gases, air pollution and water and soil contamination – while renewable energy sources contribute relatively little.
Among Renewable energy technologies, dolar is super clean, very affordable, and readily available. No wonder Governor Bill Ritter is on a mission to make Colorado the leader in renewable energy. And with over 300 days of sunlight a year, Colorado is among the best places to harvest the sun in the nation. Let us help you make an important investment in the future, and see savings along the way.
Concept Solar is equiped to handle any and all of your electrical needs, both those related and unrelated to solar. We encourage a free Energy Audit to determine your unique needs.
We serve the western side of Colorado, from Summit County to Mesa County, from Fruita to Cortez.
