The Importance of Correct System Design

We recognize that every home is different and has a unique set of needs. Some factors go into making sure your solar power and home battery system is designed to fit your individual requirements. Unfortunately, too many companies don’t consider all of those factors. At Sopris Solar, that’s not how we do things. We want to be certain your system meets your energy needs for years to come. Our expertise allows us to analyze your electric usage requirements and provide energy-saving solutions specific to each of our customers’ goals for solar installation in Colorado.

If your goal is to offset your electric bill entirely (which is what we normally recommend), we go the extra step to ensure this. A poorly designed system can potentially cost you thousands of dollars in the long term.

How Solar Works

Solar technology uses the second most abundant element on earth to harness the limitless energy of the sun. It couldn’t be more sustainable, and it’s becoming more affordable every year. So how does harnessing solar energy work?


Solar panels collect energy from the sun. When sunlight hits the solar panels, photovoltaic (PV) cells convert sunlight to direct current (DC) electricity.


The inverter converts the DC from the sun into AC power, which is the power used in your home.


The inverter feeds your service panel, and your home uses the electricity produced by the solar panels and inverter


The excess energy that your home doesn’t use is sent through the bi-directional meter spinning your meter backward- sending that energy back to the grid and providing credits when you need energy in the evening when the sun goes down.

Harness the Limitless Energy of the Sun

Solar panel systems are an extremely reliable source of power, and with the costs of electricity rising at an alarming rate, it’s even more beneficial for you to rely on your energy production. By investing in solar panels, you can avoid exorbitant increases in your energy bill and save even more. By using our Suniva Panels and Solar Edge inverters and DC optimizer, your system comes with a 25-year warranty, so you don’t have to worry about receiving consistent energy for a regular price over the system’s lifetime.

Research has shown that for each kilowatt of energy installed, the value of your home increases upwards of $5,000. Because solar power has so many benefits, the government adamantly encourages participation by offering tax credits, rebates, and other incentives. Additionally, by utilizing solar energy, you’re significantly reducing CO2 emissions and thereby contributing to a much healthier environment.
