Independent Power Systems or IPS started in 1996 and is headquartered in Boulder, Colorado. The locally owned company specializes in the design and installation of sustainable renewable energy systems. Installations are done in-house by engineers, licensed electricians, and well-certified installers. Customers can expect integrity when working with IPS. The company mostly works in Bozeman, Montana; Boulder, Colorado; and the Beverly/North Boston area of Massachusetts. IPS offers strong warranties and aims to reduce fossil fuel use. It is unclear if their residential solar solutions include an inverter warranty or online monitoring.
IPS solar systems are economically and environmentally friendly. Their solar solutions aim to reduce customers' carbon footprint, and lessen their future energy costs. The systems support renewable energy, and reduce coal burning. IPS claims that home values increase after installing solar. Unfortunately, the company does not include a lot of information on their residential solar solutions.
Interested customers can request a free quote or solar analysis. For the free solar analysis, IPS workers will actually get on one's roof to analyze and evaluate it. Not only that, but during the solar analysis, IPS workers will answer customer questions, and discuss system operations and recommendations.
Customers can choose to finance with a $0 down lease, solar loan, or cash purchase.
Starting in 1996, the company has been in the industry for 20 years. IPS claims they use integrity to achieve customer satisfaction, safety, efficiency, and quality. The company mostly serves Massachusetts, Montana, and Colorado, but has also done international work.
When choosing IPS for solar in the home, customers can expect a 25-year solar panel warranty and a 15-year workmanship warranty.
For those wanting to learn more about solar energy, IPS provides a helpful blog full of educational articles. The company also has a section for solar news.
Customers can explore IPS' photo gallery to see pictures from past residential, international, off-grid and commercial solar installations.
IPS has a Twitter, Youtube, Facebook, Google Plus and LinkedIn page. Even though the pages do not have huge followings, the company tries to post fairly regularly.
The company's website deeply lacks cost and financing information. While IPS states they offer $0 down leases, solar loans, and cash purchase options, there is nothing explained past that. Leasing term information is not included, and it does not appear that the company offers PPAs (power purchase agreement). Financing options are especially important, and top companies in the industry almost always describe their financing choices in detail. Cost information is also excluded. There is nothing on the website that explains average costs.
Even though IPS has social media profiles, and does a good job at posting fairly frequently, the company lacks in social interaction. IPS does not readily respond or comment on Facebook customer visitor posts.
IPS offers strong solar panel and workmanship warranties, however, the company doesn't specify whether to not inverter warranties are included with their residential solar solutions.
