Working with Denver Solar Contractors

Get to know the process and players before you get your solar system installation

Ready To Get Your Denver Solar System Installed?

Whether you’ve already gotten a free estimate or are just scoping out what to expect, we’ve got you covered. Denver has a variety of solar companies with a range of solar contractors when you decide to get a solar system installed. You deserve to know what you get.

Denver-Specific Considerations for Contractors

Every place is different and solar contractors in Denver have a lot of different factors to weigh when installing a solar system on your house.


Lots of people worry about snow building up, blocking, or even breaking solar panels. Luckily, solar panels are built sturdy and generate enough heat that most snowfall melts on contact. A snowstorm might block the sun, but it won’t bother your solar panels!


Hail storms are a frequent occurrence in Colorado. But the way solar panels are built, they can withstand that kind of force. The 2017 hail storm that damaged the Colorado Mills Mall only damaged 1 of the 3,000+ solar panels at the National Renewable Energy Lab nearby.

Roof Direction

Since Colorado is in the northern hemisphere, south-facing roofs have an advantage when it comes to solar harvesting, but a Denver solar contractor will help you assess your house’s roof angles to determine how much exposure it has and how much power that produces.

Sunny Days

Set in one of the sunniest states, Denver is a prime candidate for regular sunshine and that means Colorado contractors can provide confident estimates regarding how much you can save with regular solar energy throughout the year.


Denver’s beautiful scenery can pose an issue for solar systems whether it’s by blocking the sun from a distance or being too close to the rooftop in question. Denver solar contractors have the tools to determine the best way to preserve your trees and harvest the most solar.


Though the mountains rise up high in the West, they do not make solar harvesting a worse proposition for residents of Denver. Solar contractors can adapt to whatever structural and logistical challenges your local terrain poses.

How Does Your Denver Solar Contractor Help You?

  1. We’ll Schedule a Site Assessment

Our Denver solar contractor will visit to see how to best install a solar system on your property. Depending on your roofing material, the sun-facing angles, and even the supports of your rooftop, our contractors in Denver will design your system to match your home’s unique attributes. They may ask for you to address any issues like pruning nearby trees or moving satellite dishes to provide you maximum solar harvesting.


  1. We’ll Help You with Permits

These designs need to be submitted to your local government for permitting, and this process varies depending on your location in Denver. Most of the requirements are included in the Denver Zoning Codes. Other requirements are specific to neighborhoods and municipalities. Luckily, you don’t have to look any of this up. Our contractors in Colorado know the area and requirements and can work closely with you during this process to make sure the submission process is painless and quick so you keep your momentum in the installation process.


  1. We’ll Get Your System Installed

Once you’ve got the approval from your local government, our Denver solar contractors can get started. Our crew installs the proper wiring and mounting equipment before connecting the solar panels. Depending on the size of your solar system, this can take anywhere from half a day to 2 days.

But what about installing in winter?!

At Blue Raven, our Denver solar contractors have the tools and experience to install in any season. Even if it’s the dead of winter, our crews will get you up and running ASAP. On the off chance that it’s actively snowing, we may have to reschedule for safety reasons but with 300 sunny days in the year, it can’t snow forever! Blue Raven Solar will have your system installed in no time.


  1. We’ll Help Arrange a Government Inspection

Once the design is installed, all that’s left is a final inspection from your municipality. They’ll visit your home, ensure that your solar system is properly installed, and they will install a net meter that tracks your solar production and allows you to send excess power back to the electrical grid. This net metering system allows you to save on future power bills or even get paid by the power company.


  1. We’ll Activate Your Solar System

After final approval, you’re all done! We’ll flip the switch, and you’ll start collecting solar energy for years to come. This process, all said, generally takes about 2 to 8 weeks from making the decision to getting your panels installed. Unfortunately, none of us can put a timer on how long government works, but our contractors in Colorado will be with you every step of the way to make sure you get installed and operational as soon as possible.

The Blue Raven Solar installers were very punctual, polite, and well versed in their knowledge about the system and all other solar systems. A very qualified team and they were very productive in getting it install. They showed up at 7am and got straight to work and was finished by 11:30am. Amazing!!!

Bright, competent three-man crew installed the 300w Trinasolar panels on our roof yesterday in a clean, neat configuration, and did the necessary electrical work, including installing a new thermostat that's a little better and easier to program than our old one.So far, it all looks great.Big rain coming Sunday (6/17/2018), so I'll check the attic for leaks, make sure everything's in good shape up there.So far, so good.

My panels are now installed , just waiting on city and power company now...BRS has been outstanding since the very beginning! Conrad was an excellent rep, educated me on the process, very knowledgeable and professional. The install team was prompt and timely and did a great job figuring some attic issues, and able to keep the conduit inside not on roof, looks way nicer ?. All the office people were great in sending documents and keeping me informed of what was needed of me and where we were in the process. Overall my end of the process was really simple and I’m super excited to be producing all my electric needs from solar energy now! Highly recommend this company!read more

Worked well as a team, focused on the job, and a beautiful finished product. The electricial gave an excellent tutorial on the new panels. They were so tidy; covering boots in the house and even spot vacuumed after being on the attic insulation. As for safety, the were tied off the whole time on roof and wore Tyvec and respirator in the attic. I could have any and all these guys over for a pleasant dinner.Thank you Blue Raven crew!

The Blue Raven crew was scheduled for an 8:00 AM arrival and arrived about 7:50 AM. The crew leader came to the door and gave me information on the days work. The crew went to work on the roof preparing the solar cell supports. Another member brought the equipment for the electrical panels and tools for installation to the meter and began installing. Shortly the shipping truck arrived with the solar cells and inverters and the crew went to work attaching the inverters. The installation was completed by 12:30 and the area was left in an excellent condition. I was very pleased as I asked several questions and they took the time to answer them throughly. Before leaving they showed me that the system was working and how to start producing power once the power company installs their more
