Capitol Solar Energy makes ecology and economy compatible goals. We propose solar solutions that are efficient, competitive, and reliable, to maximize the benefits for our customers. We are a friendly company that delivers real value to our clients, by keeping operating expenses low, designing premier-quality systems, using the most cost effective panels available, and drawing from 28 years of experience in systems design, installation and maintenance.
As a small company Capitol Solar has the flexibility to truly serve its customers and avoid the “one size fits all” marketing approach of bigger corporations. We strive to continue offering the best value available in solar systems in Colorado for another 28 years!
Capitol Solar Energy Company LLC was originally started in 1982 as Capitol Solar Inc., in the midst of an exciting growth phase for the solar industry. This exponential growth was caused by the energy crisis of the late 70s and federal tax incentives. After the expiration of the solar energy tax credits in 1985 most solar companies disappeared. Our company continued as Capitol Solar Service in 1986. Capitol Solar stuck to its commitment, remaining in business and often taking care of the service needs of many defunct companies’ customers.
Over the course of 28 years of field experience, servicing all types of systems, we have learned many lessons. We have seen all sorts of experimental systems and business endeavors in the solar industry. Capitol Solar was a founding member of CoSEIA, the Colorado Solar Energy Association and contributed as a board member in the 1990’s.
We fully support John Klima, President and founding member of CoSEIA, who recently said at the CoSEIA annual meeting: “Let’s have the wisdom to learn from our industry’s past and help the consumer install great systems”.
You can benefit from our 28 years of experience. We are able to offer turnkey solutions, from simple hot-water solar systems, to complex, reliable, custom systems with multiple applications that will work as long as most houses will last!
With the current turn of events: global warming, troubles with oil-producing countries, the need for renewable energy and energy independence, federal tax credits, Colorado State incentives, Governor Bill Ritter’s commitment to clean energy, and the Denver Greenprint initiative - we feel a renewed hope and enthusiasm that more and more Coloradans will choose to harvest the sun’s energy with us!
