This solar company is out of business.
Due to difficulties adjusting to the changing solar industry landscape brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic, Ecomark Solar permanently closed its doors in October 2022.
Colorado residents are encouraged to investigate other solar companies in Colorado to help meet their solar needs.
EcoMark Solar was founded in 2010 with a passion for providing solar electricity to Colorado homeowners. From its humble grassroots beginning, the solar power company is now one of the largest solar companies on the Front Range and has received numerous awards for its installation volume and expertise. EcoMark Solar's focus remains on providing Colorado homeowners with systems that are designed to help them save money and gain energy independence.
EcoMark Solar is a unique installer within the solar industry in that the company provides upfront pricing on a variety of different solar PV systems. According to data on the company website, Ecokmark Solar offers four standard* solar panel installation sizes:
*Readers should note that these figures only account for the cost of the solar panel equipment, and not the total solar installation cost.
Per social media postings, EcoMark Solar installs solar panels from REC Solar and solar inverters by SolarEdge. Both components are highly efficient and are designed to maximize the output of every solar energy system they're a part of. Solar panels from REC rank third in energy efficiency (21.7 percent) behind SunPower (22.8 percent) and LG (22.0 percent). SolarEdge inverters meanwhile maintain upwards of 98 percent efficiency in terms of translating solar power into usable electricity.
A high-efficiency system also improves the likelihood of saving money on homeowner's energy bills over the 25-year life of the solar panel system.
EcoMark has been identified as a top 500 solar contractor in the nation by Solar Power World Magazine every year from 2014 to 2019. Since its founding in 2010, the company has installed solar energy solutions equating to more than 21,500 kilowatts in Colorado alone. As of 2019, the solar installer employs over 150 skilled professionals.
In addition to this accolade, EcoMark's technicians have also attained accreditation from the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP). This certification is awarded to companies that enforce best solar industry practices and keep up to date on the latest developments on renewable energy technology.
Homeowners interested in making the switch to solar energy, but don't want to front the thousands of dollars to finance their system all at once, can apply for a special EcoMark Solar loan through Bank of Colorado. Bank of Colorado offers qualified applicants both 5- and 10-year social financing options, though details of those loans (rates, money down, etc.) are not disclosed upfront.
The company's solar loan and cash payment options, while more expensive than leasing or PPA, give owners access to valuable tax incentives and tax credits. They're also able to take advantage of Colorado's excellent net metering policy, which requires the utility company to credit them for any excess energy their solar power system produces.
As stated above, EcoMark Solar's focus is on Colorado homeowners and its services are only available in the Centennial State. While being a local provider does have its advantages, it limits those who have access to the company's services.
EcoMark does not appear to offer customers a solar lease or PPA option. These can be especially useful for customers who want all the advantages and energy savings of solar, without footing the high price or purchasing a solar panel system themselves.
EcoMark Solar has several years of experience providing residential solar solutions. The company offers a referral program, hail damage coverage, and helpful resources for its customers. However, EcoMark Solar is currently only available in Colorado. If you live in elsewhere, you'll need to consider other options.
