Sopris Solar is a residential and commercial home services company specializing in solar panel installation and repair. The company has been serving homeowners and business owners in the greater Denver, Colorado area since 2013, and custom-designs every solar panel installation — be it roof- or ground-mounted — using AURORA design software to help customers save on their utility bills.

Sopris Solar also helps non-profit organizations transition to solar energy through C-PACE funding, which requires no out-of-pocket expenses and generates immediate positive cash flow for non-profits in Denver.

Top Ranked Companies


The Good

  • Full-Service Installation
  • Additional Home Services
  • Industry-Leading Warranties
  • NABCEP Certified

Full-Service Installation

Sopris Solar provides expert service from start to finish. Beginning with the initial energy audit, the company grades the home’s energy usage to determine the potential savings a solar panel system could bring. Using design software from AURORA, the company then builds a custom solar energy system designed to maximize solar output and energy savings.

Once the design is complete, Sopris Solar will obtain all the necessary permits from the city, then install the actual solar PV system on the roof or designated area. Following an inspection, the Sopris Solar will then have the green light to interconnect the system with the city’s power grid.

Additional Home Services

In addition to solar panel installation, Sopris solar also provides customers with solar repair and maintenance services. Whether panels are damaged by wind, hair, rain, fire, or some other incident, Sopris Solar can handle it.

Beyond solar panels systems, Sopris Solar provides customers with solar energy backup solutions, commercial roofing repair and installation, and geothermal energy solutions.

Industry-Leading Warranties

Sopris Solar offers customers an industry-leading 25-year workmanship warranty, which covers the system against any installation or human-caused errors or damage for essentially the life of the system.

In terms of equipment warranties, the Suniva solar panels the company installs carry a five-year parts warranty and a 25-year performance warranty; its SolarEdge inverters meanwhile come with a 25-year equipment warranty.

NABCEP Certified

Sopris Solar holds a certification from the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP), which is considered the gold standard certification arm of the solar industry. This certification indicates the company has taken additional steps to ensure its technicians are up to date on the latest solar installation techniques and technologies; it can sometimes make the difference to customers comparing multiple providers.


The Bad

  • Limited Service Area
  • No Lease, PPA

Limited Service Area

Sopris Solar only serves residents and business owners in the greater Denver, Colorado area. With nearly 400 unique solar providers in the state, Colorado has quickly become one of the most competitive residential solar markets in the country.

Promoting verified Sopris Solar reviews from actual customers can be an effective way for the company to stand out from the competition.

No Lease, PPA

While Sopris Solar offers customers competitive purchase and loan financing options through industry-leading lenders like Mosaic, Sungage, Loanpal, and Service Finance, it does not appear to offer solar leases or power purchase agreements (PPAs); these options can be incredibly cost-effective for customers unable or unwilling to foot the cost of a solar panel system themselves.


The Bottom Line

If you live in the Denver area and are looking to purchase or loan a quality solar panel system from a local company, Sopris Solar may be the right option.

The company’s solar installation, workmanship warranty, and backup energy services make it a competitive provider; however, customers are encouraged to read verified Sopris Solar reviews before signing a service agreement.

Nina Woodard Boardman, OR

We started the installation over a year ago and it is still not up and running. They are non responsive and will not finish the work they started. They are not helpful and as I said very unresponsive to our request to help get the city inspection done so we can use our installed but not connected system. We lost the whole year of solar savings!

Don't do it! They are incompetent!! Don't do it!!! I signed contract April 2022, still Sopris has not all the required permits in hand, and want to change, increase, the contract amount to charge more. They already have over $37,00.00 of my money since before May 2022 and no construction has begun by them. Many promises have been stated, yet most have not been fulfilled. They are really good at delaying and delaying and delaying with excuse after excuse. Despite setting up a weekly update meeting in July 2022, is has only been followed through maybe 4 of the 12 times. They even delivered the wrong material, the main wire to be used from the panels to the house (Sopris brought aluminum wire and not copper as it is suppose to be), which was not the wire THEY specified for my job! The management is incompetent in many ways. They simply do not know what they are doing, or so it is clearly evident in my case. If I could give them less than one star I would give them zero. Finally, I suggest you do a thorough background check on the owner, Nathan B. before you sign anything. Beware of managing partner Scot B. too! dean quint

Reply from Sopris Solar

Dean, I am sorry you feel this way. We have tried numerous times in the last five months to complete your project and have been met with nothing but abusive and negative responses. If you are going to leave reviews, please be accurate because otherwise these review sites do not help homeowners in evaluating solar installers and is a disservice to the industry. I think that our reputation speaks for itself and I will not let you CONTINUE to bully our project managers, installers and staff. Either let us install your system or we can deliver all of your material that is in our warehouse to your home and you can install the system. yourself. Both of these options have been provided to you on numerous occasions.

This company is a total scam, I am have a solar installation company About Time Solar, we were hired by these scumbags to try, and clean up what they had started, never were paid, the even owe there employees. We turned it over to collections, since then, I learned this is common practice for them. They have almost bankrupted several companies. STAY AWAY
