CRJ Contractors is proud to be your partner in solar energy. We are a residential solar energy company in Colorado Springs, and we offer education, services, and quotes to individuals across the state. When you contact us for an estimate, we evaluate your home completely for free, and prepare you a custom solar energy audit that outlines everything from the future design on your roof to the long-term savings that your unique system can provide.

Step One: Evaluate Current Utility Usage & Cost

When we design a solar proposal, we take a look at your home’s kWh usage for the month and determine the average cost per kWh that you are paying for on your bill. This helps us determine the value that each kWh of solar will save you. We also look at the historical energy rates in your neighborhood to see if the rate at which electricity cost has been increasing. We compare that with the local Colorado data on electricity to predict how rates will fluctuate in the years to come. All of this helps create a foundation to see whether solar is a smart investment for your home.

Step Two: Design

Next, we evaluate what type of system and design your home will need. When it comes to installing solar panels, each rooftop is different and will require a custom setup that will allow it to thrive. Things that affect solar systems on your roof include: roof slope, pitch and aspect, rooftop units like drains, vents, exhaust fans and chimneys, latitude, shade from nearby homes, buildings trees, mountains, or other vegetation. Weather conditions, the way your home is positioned to the sun, and more all impact the type of system and design your home will need. 

With this data, we determine how many solar panels that your house will need to offset your current/future electrical usage, which direction they will face, and what type will suit your needs best. We create a custom design that matches your rooftop. This way, we can calculate exactly how much a solar system will produce in terms of energy and how much it will cost.

Step Three: Financial Decisions

Finally, we prepare a quote that outlines the cost of the solar system. We factor in the initial cost of the system, the federal tax credits, and any utility cash rebates, if available. Different neighborhoods and communities in Colorado Springs may have something different to offer. That’s why it is important to choose a local solar company. After subtracting the savings, we have your net cost for your solar system. At this stage, we also compute the increase of home value and your total savings on your utility bill. CRJ also offers multiple financing options. Once the decision has been made, we begin the solar panel installation process with the top companies in the entire region.
