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.

The Good

  • Transparent Pricing
  • Quality Solar Equipment
  • Awards and Certifications
  • Solar Loans through Bank of Colorado

Transparent Pricing

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:

  • Nano System — a two-panel, 600-watt system for $3,500
    Micro System — a four-panel, 1,200-watt system for $6,500
    Standard System — an eight-panel, 2,400-watt system for $9,500
    Macro System — a 20-panel, 6,000-watt system for $23,950

*Readers should note that these figures only account for the cost of the solar panel equipment, and not the total solar installation cost.

Quality Solar Equipment

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.

Awards and Certifications

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.

Solar Loans through Bank of Colorado

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.


The Bad

  • Limited Availability
  • No Solar Lease or PPA Options

Limited Availability

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.

No Solar Lease or PPA Options

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.


The Bottom Line

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.

Art Broomfield, CO

Installers and electrician were friendly and competent. I informed the system design engineer and the project manager that I was concerned about squirrels getting under the panels and chewing on the wiring since my neighbor had to have his solar company come out 3 times before they installed the critter guard sufficiently to keep the squirrels from getting under the panels. I even sent photos of my neighbors critter guard to EcoMark with no effect. The installers also left a front edge trim piece off of the panels and instead used a piece of duct tape. When I spend $20K for a Solar system, I expect a more professional looking for and finish. The other complaint I have with EcoMark is their System Design. I was told I could only put on so many panels due to the capacity of my main breaker panel. After a little of my own research and talking with the electrician, I could have added the additional panels I originally wanted

Reply from EcoMark Solar

Hello Art, We are sorry to hear you are not fully satisfied, however we thank you for your feedback. EcoMark Solar is one of the only Solar companies operating in Colorado that includes critterguard on every Solar System we install. I have been assured that our team has installed your critter guard and that you have some concerns that we will be out to address as soon as we can. Our master electricians will only install panels that will not cause safety issues. We did the max amount your main panel would allow and still pass inspection. We did offer the option to update your main panel in order to reach your desired system size, however you signed off on the system without the upgrade. We always want to provide our customers with the best service and equipment we can offer, however we cannot compromise safety in order to accomodate a larger system. Thank you again for the feedback and we will be out as soon as we can to inspect your critterguard.

We've had EcoMarkfor 18 months: no electric bill. 15 days ago our inverter went on the fritz. it's mid June: 2nd best month of the year. Reported on day 8. When I asked who would pay the electric bill that will be coming? The answer was "if your washing machine broke down you'd have to go to the laundromat". Actually I wouldn't because I'd buy a new one immediately.
