Installing Solar Panels in Colorado? Here’s Why You Should Work with an EPC Company
At Elite Roofing & Solar, we’ve been working hard to help homeowners throughout Colorado achieve greater energy independence and make their homes sustainable with new solar panels. However, as the popularity of solar panels has grown in our state, the number of solar installers and vendors has grown as well.
As with any home improvement project, it’s crucial to work with a high-quality company to ensure you get the most from your investment. This is especially true for solar, where the right partner can make a huge difference in the savings you accumulate over the life of your new solar array.
When it comes to quality in solar installation, solar EPC companies are truly the best of the best. EPC stands for “Engineering, Procurement, and Construction,” and these companies complete your full installation in-house, ensuring maximal quality. Here are the benefits of working with an EPC to install solar panels on your Colorado home.
Complete Your Installation Faster
Solar EPC companies are those few solar vendors who not only sell but fully install your new solar panels fully in-house. This means they aren’t relying on a third-party partner (or partners!) to complete the various portions of the installation process.
What all of this means is that your installation when working with an EPC company will be much more streamlined. Rather than having two more or more companies to schedule with, the entire process will be planned and communicated by one company.
Enjoy Greater Peace of Mind
With many Colorado solar vendors, you may not know who exactly will be installing your solar new solar panels. The company who sold you the solar panels may well not be the company who will install them, and in many cases they aren’t.
This makes it much harder to vet the contractors who will actually be installing your solar panels. While you may have carefully done your research before choosing to purchase from a vendor, that peace of mind goes out the window when a contractor you’ve never met shows up to install your solar array.
With an EPC, on the other hand, the company who sells you your solar panels will be the same one that plans and completes the full installation process. This provides greater transparency and accountability.
One Point of Contact
Speaking of accountability, working with a Colorado EPC company to install your solar panels makes it much easier to communicate with your installer. If you ever have questions before, during, or after the installation process, you’ll always know who to call—because it’s the same company throughout the project.
In addition, if you ever experience a problem with your new solar array, there won’t be any mystery about what company to call. At Elite Roofing & Solar, we’re here for you every step of the way. We back our work with our Roof Shield Warranty, which means if you ever experience a problem with your solar panels—or the roof underneath them—you know exactly who to call.
Better Quality Control
When working with a solar installer that won’t complete the installation in-house, there’s often a mystery about what company will complete the work. In addition to that, though, you may also never know what solar panels you’ll receive until they’re installed on your home.
Many companies will simply install what’s called a “tier 1 panel.” A tier 1 panel could be one of many products that need only meet a set of general guidelines, and oftentimes your vendor or installer will simply choose the one that’s most readily available or that is available for the lowest price.
With an EPC like Elite Roofing & Solar, however, you’ll often get better control over which solar panels are installed. We exclusively work with Qcells, SunPower, and Maxeon products as these are the best on the market.
