    I have worked with ARE on both our custom homes and also on my private residence.
    I am very pleased with these service and knowledge related to the industry.

  • "Great company, great service"

    Reviewed Apr 15, 2021

    We have worked with ARE solar for several years now, including two residential projects (our old house and our current residence) as well as a commercial project on a business, and I would recommend them for both home/business solar projects without a second of hesitation. They were detailed in the planning, and incredibly good about communication with us as we prepared for each project. While most of our direct interaction was in the planning and installation of the solar systems, they are also very responsive in continuing to communicate with us, like proactively contacting us to troubleshoot if they're somehow not getting signals from the solar system. We are so glad we installed solar- we got a tax credit, and we get a monthly rebate check from Xcel, and best of all, we're producing all of our own electricity. For the sake of writing a review to help other customers make their decision, I'm trying to think of any sort of glitches or challenges we experienced, and I'm struggling to think of any. I remember during the commercial project, we knew we might have some supply issues because of tariffs, and I think some of the final installation happened just as the world was moving into lockdown for the pandemic. However, none of this impacted getting the project taken care of in a timely way, and I believe that was only because they did a truly great job managing the project and keeping it moving, as well as communicating with us. I would highly recommend ARE Solar.

  • "Outstanding service"

    ARE solar makes upgrading your home or business to photovoltaic solar a breeze. Not only are they penultimate installers, but their real forte is personalized, prompt SERVICE. While solar systems may look easy to install, they are really complex electro-magnetic technologies and just the slightest incorrect setting can render them non-functional. ARE is highly skilled and experienced in all of the minutiae attendant to web-enabled panels, inverters, batteries and transfer switches and their interactions. Our family is so fortunate to have found and worked with ARE. They simply are the best investment we could have made.

    I am a professional builder and I have been building in Boulder County for over 30 years and have used ARE Solar for the last seven high end homes I have built in Niwot and Longmont Colorado. Compared to a national solar company I used several years ago, ARE Solar is much more organized and has much higher quality installers. The national company I used failed their initial inspection and did a poor job with poorly trained installers. Over the past several years ARE Solar has had a much higher quality installation crew with most of the crew being with the company for many years. They take the time and effort to work with me in designing the system and are flexible to work with. If you want someone to work on your house who can do it right, I would highly recommend ARE Solar.

  • "Great experience"

    Reviewed Feb 27, 2021

    We had ARE Solar install our system in December 2020. We are extremely happy with the installation. David and Casey were extremely responsive to our many questions, and guided us to a great solution. They continue to be responsive to our questions and needs post-completion. The installation crews were really great. They showed up on time, were courteous, cleaned up and worked hard. I have become obsessed with the Solar Edge app that allows us to monitor our real-time generation, energy use, battery status and grid usage.

    I would like to let you know about the outstanding experience I Had/have with ARE Solar.

    My extremely positive experience starts with the head of the company, David Weldman. I have a very challenging roof system. I had four companies make bids for the project . My main goal was to to provide enough energy to meet the needs of my house. Three out of four companies stated that it was not possible. ARE Solar said it would take planning however it could be done. David Detailed his comprehensive plan which came with a complete and thorough description ofhow he would procede. He also was able to make sure I understood all aspects of the system. Frst explained the processof his of layout, then amount of energy that would be needed,,the types of panels and inverters and the ability of his employees to carry out the plan. I also have to acknowledge that his people were experienced, courterous and were very positive that they could and would make this work. Well , ARE finished the project and achieved all of our goals!! Since then , I have some eguipment malfunctions and ARE rapidly responded and completed the warrenty work. ARE is and has been great to work with and I am rating them as an A+ and ask you to consider ARE for your project.

    Sincerely, Jim Sherry

    Reviewed Mar 01, 2017

    I selected ARE Solar for our installation. They have been incredibly thorough, upfront, honest, and most importantly price competitive. As well, they don't really get kickbacks from their lenders so there is not a HUGE push to use their financing vehicles as other installers were. Overall our sales guy was very honest and not pushy. Other vendors we talked to felt like I was at a timeshare or something. Not these guys - they're busy enough that they don't HAVE to get your business, but not so busy that they ignore people. I have yet to get my system installed because I am in utility limbo (to be expected of my electrical Co-Op) but I have little to no expectations of issues.
