As an active solar electric contractor in the Pikes Peak Region since 1995, Rocky Mountain Solar & Wind, Inc. has 24 years of experience installing solar electric systems. Solar installations require careful attention to detail that only comes with experience like ours. One of our goals is to make sure that each of our flush, roof-mount solar arrays appears as a solitary flat plane, as though it were only one single pane of glass. Occasionally, our installations take a bit longer than some of our competitors - slightly increasing our labor costs - because we strive to put value in every facet of the job. That's why we include a 10-year workmanship warranty to protect against any damage or defects due to our quality craftsmanship.
RMSWI carries a wide range of solar electric panels with varying efficiencies and warranties. The most popular panel option is Panasonic Solar, which provides an industry-leading 25-year product warranty and a 90.76% production guarantee after 25 years, but several other panel options are available.
Rocky Mountain Solar & Wind, Inc. has 23 years of LOCAL solar electric experience with several different utilities and regional building departments.
Our vertically integrated sales/design associates handle your job personally, from the first phone call, to the site visit, to the permit engineering, to the meter swap when the system is turned on. You will always know who to call if you have any questions or concerns.
Our installation crews are paid hourly, whereas other installations crews are paid "per job". This means our crews are focused on quality, not quantity.
At Rocky Mountain Solar & Wind, Inc, solar installation typically begins in 4-6 weeks, not 4-6 months. Begin to capture your premium solar production now!
RMSWI has designed, installed and repaired solar heating systems since 1978, and solar electric systems since 1995. We install residential and commercial systems in the Colorado Springs, Pueblo, Denver, Fairplay and Canon City regions of Colorado.
After researching thoroughly the Colorado Springs area for a Solar installer, I opted for an install w/ Rocky Mountain Solar and Wind. As with any contractor we did have a minor misunderstanding at the beginning based upon schedule, but it was professionally resolved with a call to the office. From there on, customer service from them was top notch. I was given an install window, to which they stuck to. The team of installers (Smitty, James, and John) were exceptional, professional and courteous. They explained what was to be done each day and kept me informed of what was being planned for the next at the end of each install gate/day. At completion, they explained the whole system again to me and generated the correct expectations of what CSU would do for integrating w/ the grid, also minor damage was done to some shingles, and the crew advised and disclosed this information to me of them and am currently in contact w/ Rocky Mountain for corrective action for the fix (mind install was on a two story home, 3 w/ walkout basement) So far I have had my system running for over 2 weeks and couldn't be any happier at the craftsmanship, the panels, the install crew, and the company behind them.
Decided to investigate Solar PV and sought referrals from BBB, Home Advisor, and a friend who had a solar PV system. The friend recommended Rock Mountain Solar and Wind, Inc. (RMSWI) which also had good BBB rating. Requested proposals from 5 Companies. Brendan provided the proposal from RMSWI. He took a lot of time to help us understand the various types of solar PV systems and how they operated. He also provided multiple estimates using different manufacturer's equipment so we could easily compare estimates from other contractors who had proposed different equipment and solar PV approaches. Brendan's professionalism and desire to educate and assist us was a key factor, along with the warranty offered, in selecting RMSWI to install our system. We delayed the contract start in order to replace our 17 year-old roof before installing the system but RMSWI held the price firm and worked us into the schedule upon completion of the roof project. The installers completed installation in less than a week and the City inspected the system and installed the meters to bring us on-line without delay. The system is functioning as promised and even provided a text book production curve on a cloudless day!! Thanks Rocky Mountain Solar & Wind, Inc.
Someone named Brendan came by my house (uninvited) when I wasn't home, then went to my neighbors house and told them to have me contact him because my solar system was not working (it was), that his company installed my system (they didn't), then went (uninvited) onto my property to check my panel electrical box.
These people are liars, scam artists and totally unprofessional. If you're choosing service or installation, for you own good, go to anyone BUT these people.
I adamantly deny any attempted scams! I am very proud of the service I provide! Following a lifelong passion for sustainability and environmental conservation, I graduated in December 2015 from the University of Wisconsin-Platteville with an engineering-based BS in Sustainable & Renewable Energy Systems emphasizing on management and development and a minor in Business Administration. I had an opportunity to travel to Costa Rica with Solar Energy International during school, sparking my commitment to solar energy. With more than three years of solar experience since graduation, I strive to provide my customers with a strong knowledge base when they are making their solar energy investments.
