SolSource was founded in 2004 by solar industry veteran Jeff Scott and a team of solar professionals, who created a company that has grown to be one of Colorado's most successful solar design and installation firms. Our experience covers institutional projects, commercial, businesses, government installations, schools, and residential installations. For each project, we design a unique solution, staying conscious of budget, system maintenance requirements, government regulations, environmental issues, and building aesthetics.
We are one of the only engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) solar companies that offer a wide range of expertise in both the institutional and residential arenas, including educational training and consulting services. We bring the knowledge we've gained in 25 years in the solar industry. SolSource provides a comprehensive source of products and technical integration to engineer and install complete solar electric, solar thermal hot water, and air heating systems with a 10-year warranty on all SolSource solar systems. We are committed to making a difference in our local community and create partnerships and provide guidance and training to non-profits, elected officials, schools and utilities.
A strong environmental ethic informs our work for institutional, government, commercial, and residential clients. Our mission is to help lower greenhouse gas emissions and lead the way to a more environmentally sustainable world. We believe solar technologies and green building products, along with lifestyle changes, are an important way to achieve this goal. We see clean energy technologies as one of the most effective ways to address global warming, increase our nation's energy security, and create an informed next generation of citizens and officials knowledgeable about renewable energy as a sound environmental and economic alternative to burning fossil fuels.

Economics of Solar
With the availability of utility rebates and state and Federal financial incentives, solar energy has become increasingly cost-effective with a typical ROI of five to seven years. The State of Colorado and Federal government both offer tax credits to cover a portion of the purchase of solar electric and solar thermal systems.
For homeowners, SolSource offers a complete financing package for solar PV and domestic hot water systems through several commercial banks. You can choose to roll the cost of your solar energy system into your mortgage (or re-finance) or take out a low-interest loan. Utility rebates through Xcel, Blackhills, Colorado Springs Utility (CSU) can buy down the cost of your system by up to 50 percent. SolSource helps to simplify the process of securing your solar electric or solar thermal system by handling all the required paperwork to process the rebate. If needed we can "float" the rebate, which reduces your out-of-pocket expenses.
For commercial, municipal or Federal government projects, SolSource can provide turnkey financing though a Power Purchase Agreement which can provide financial advantages for our clients. Our goal is to support your decision to go solar every step along the way - simplifying the financing process and helping our clients access all available tax credits and rebates.
