Independent Power

Since 1996, Independent Power has been the leading the way to energy independence across Colorado. Connect with their highly-experienced consultants to design your custom high-quality solar & battery system. Maximize your solar system by adding battery storage, and dissolve expensive gas bills with a heat pump or mini splits - all with one local company. Reclaim your energy independence!

As utility companies raise rates on natural gas and electricity, you can reclaim your energy independence and take control of how you power your home in just a few easy steps:

- Electrify your house with a new solar system, heat pump or mini split to break free of natural gas
- Upgrade to an electric vehicle (EV) and charge it with your own solar system and stop paying for gas at the pump forever
- Run it all on solar and eliminate your electric bills!
- Add battery storage and enjoy peace of mind anytime the grid goes out

With these upgrades, not only will you remove yourself from utility rate increases, but also you switch your energy footprint away from fossil fuels to the ultimate renewable energy source: the sun. This is real control and real savings. This is what energy independence looks like!

Our team has trail blazed the future of energy ever since. From installing solar above treeline in national parks to hoisting batteries to military bases in the middle of the ocean, we have harnessed the power of nature with and for our customers for more than 25 years.

IPS cares about its customers

The company that installed my PV System in 2006 went out of business, so when the original inverter failed in 2015 I called another large local PV company to provide a replacement. When that 2nd inverter failed in 2022, I called that company back (inverter in this case was under warranty) but they were not interested in helping me, since they were not the installers of my total system. So, I called IPS. They have been terrific. Rick came out and diagnosed the problem, and submitted all the paperwork for the replacement. Cierra has been diligent in keeping (necessary!!) pressure on the manufacturer to ship a replacement, and in keeping in communication with me. And at the end of a very long workday yesterday, Rick showed up with a cheerful attitude at 6:15 p.m. to install my long-awaited replacement inverter. These folks are great to do business with!! (I am not rating value because it was a warranty situation, so no real info on that.)

Very pleased I chose Independent Power!

Independent Power was much more thorough than other companies when drafting a proposal, the cost was competitive and installation was completed earlier than expected. Excellent communication and friendly, professional service. Being a local company was a plus!

If possible, I would leave 6 out of 5 stars for this incredible company!

Independent Power has our undying praise and appreciation for a professional job well done. The crew of 3 who labored for 10 hours on our roof- Rick, Jan, Chuck- deserve more praise and adoration than we can give in this limited setting. Many thanks to IP for coming in to repair a total screw up from another company; our needs were handled professionally, respectfully, and in a timely manner after we reached out for help in resolving equipment failure from the company who had installed (and ignored our request for assistance) the original system. We would recommend Independent Power and their incredible crew, including Cierra, for any necessary work related to your home project! This company certainly deserves your notice and consideration.

We have solar!

Our solar panels are up on the roof basking in the sun, at least today we have good sun. I liked the people we worked with at Independent Power. They returned calls promptly, which I appreciate immensely. Xcel was a problem getting the metering equipment. Now it's working! Yay! Thanks Independent Power!

IPS is the solar company you want!

IPS were truly great and extremely communicative with the entire solar process. We shopped around for solar quotes and felt what IPS offers for the price was the most comprehensive package for the most reasonable rates. I genuinely enjoyed every person we dealt with, as they explained all the steps along the way thoroughly and with a positive attitude. We love how our solar panels look installed; they’re sleek! I highly recommend IPS as a company!

Glad to have solar!

A friend of ours in the business side of the solar industry recommended this company for our home. We were happy with the company. Only issues we had were with Xcel (extreme delays) which was out of their hands.
