  • Good Experience and NO high pressure sales techniques.

    Had a good experience with Independent Power Systems. Clear explanation of what they offered. No high pressure sales technique. High quality panels.
    Install went smoothly. I have only had the solar system for 7 months but, no problems so far.  I would recommend them as an installer to consider if you are thinking about getting solar panels.

  • IPS is a wonderful Solar Company with Great Products

    IPS is a wonderful company with great products. IPS put a solar system on our home in 2019. They are professional and provide excellent service. We no longer have to pay an electric bill! And our system will be able to help cover an EV we hope to purchase soon.

  • Friendly and Knowledgeable

    We went with IPS because they seemed to be the best company available in our area (the fact that they were dog friendly was a plus). The people we talked with were very friendly and knowledgeable, answering any questions we had quickly. The panels they were proposing sounded very good (we did some independent research). Once we signed the contract, they did not disappear – in spite of the fact that COVID hit big almost immediately after. They kept us informed about what was going on, where the backlogs were in getting the parts, and when we might expect our install to actually happen. During the install they were neat, not messing up either the yard of the roof. We have had dealings with some of the city inspectors before (and know how picky they can be), but the IPS installer showed up 2 hours before the inspector (just to be sure), and kept the inspector happy. The final product looks wonderful. We had one problem with access to the website several months after the install, but we called and got the problem fixed in about a week (IPS had to work with Sunpower to get the problem fixed). We have been very happy with IPS and the solar install, and have recommended both to other people without reservation.

  • IPS took great care of our project adding Sunpower solar panels.

    Hannah & Kristen took great care of our home project of adding Sunpower solar panels. They were very helpful in optimizing the layout which helped minimize the exposure from the HOA's standpoint. The panels were activated in August of 2020 & have been running as designed since. I would recommend their company to anyone looking to add solar to the residence.

  • Fast Solar Installation
    Tremendous service from initial estimate through very speedy and professional installation. Every individual we dealt with really knew their job & excelled in communication. IPS had us producing energy well ahead of schedule and on-budget - weeks sooner than the date projected by their closest competitor. Mark & Michelle, Boulder

  • Loved Working with IPS
    I have loved working with IPS. They are such a knowledgeable team and they worked with us on a cutting edge project at Boulder Commons to help make our solar wall a reality! Plus everyone at the company is so friendly and nice. Would absolutely suggest working with them for your solar needs!

  • High Quality Install
    Independent Power Systems was responsive, professional, and trustworthy. They provided us with high-quality SunPower solar panels and high-quality workmanship. We purchased a 6.2kW system that they installed on our newly built garage and the system is running beautifully. The SunPower monitoring was a bit tough to get up and running initially, but IPS quickly looked into it and helped us through the process. Our system is producing more power than initially quoted which makes them a trustworthy solar installer. Would highly recommend for a front range solar installer!

  • Building Green Custom Homes
    At Cottonwood Custom Builders, we build high-end, green, custom homes. Naturally, we're very selective about who we hire to work on our jobs. That makes Independent Power Systems the clear choice. They are easy to work with and professional. When they say they've "got it," we know they do! Thanks for the great work, IPS. Cheers to many years of continued partnership.

  • Kudos to Lance and Dustin
    We would like to reach out with Kudos to Lance Christenson and Dustin Rothenberg for the installation of our solar system. They both were friendly, courteous and conducted themselves professionally. They kept a neat work area and cleaned up at days end. Communication is important to us; they always let us know when and when they would not be here. Our install was not the typical/normal with our Motor Home in the equation. Lance took the time to sit down with Don to discuss the end result Don wanted and design the system to meet our needs. Also they were for the first time installing a new system unfamiliar to them. They took time to work through the issues finding the correct applications. They assured us they will be available in the future to help with any questions or needs we may have as we learn the system. Both Lance and Dustin are assets to your IPS Staff. It was a pleasure to have them on premises.

  • Most Knowledgeable Solar Company
    IPS is the most knowledgeable off-grid and battery tied company in Colorado. Their expert consultants make going solar with battery back-up easy.

  • Great Staff
    I highly recommend Solar IPS! We started with them almost 20 years back with a 2.4 KW system that worked pretty much flawlessly. When we decided to upgrade our system to almost double capacity and add more rigous monitoring, there was no question we would use them again. We had great luck working with Dan on scoping the system, guidance on which panels to select, info on matching our goals (e.g., having a plug-in hybrid someday that we want to charge from the sun), tax information, city permitting, scheduling, working with NW Energy to upgrade our net metering set up, etc, etc. All taken care of by Solar IPS. Then the installation team came out and efficiently swapped everything over in a couple of days. We work out of a home office and had not a second of down time caused by the swap out of our solar panels. This is a great team to work with. To wit, here's part of a note I wrote to Tony, the owner of Solar IPS after our installation was complete: "Just want to commend your folks up here -- Dan, Lance, Dustin -- for the great and professional job they did getting our system swapped out. They are a credit to Solar IPS, both in talent and in being fun to work with. They make the company look good! Also, thanks to Lance and Dustin for their care with masks, social distancing, etc. How great is it, by the way, that Lance was back at our house 20 years later? That makes a positive statement about your business." We highly recommend the team at Solar IPS.

  • Excellent Work
    We just installed our second solar photovoltaic system with IPS in the last 18 years. They are an excellent company that made the process run smoothly from the quote to the installation. I highly recommend them! We are happy that our grid intertied system will cover all of our house's electrical needs plus a plug-in car.

  • Awesome Company
    When I decided to put a solar system on my house, it was a realizing life-long dream. I solicited three estimates from local installers. Choosing one was difficult, as all were knowledgeable and professional, but Independent Power Systems (IPS) and their awesome SunPower system won out. IPS itself had three estimates that provided me with flexible options and prices. Their insight and experience made this project a great success. Their extra effort to tailor this installation to my needs was appreciated. They also handled the government red tape, utility contacts, and directed me towards a state DEQ loan. Special thanks to Dan, Lance, and Dustin—great people to work with! PS – you guys need to come up with some stickers that I can put on my new solar-powered e-bike.

  • Knowledgeable and Courteous
    I began the home PV process in the Spring of 2019. From the start, the IPS rep was knowledgeable and courteous. We went through several iterations of panel quantity and placement in addition to the addition of a battery backup system. They made the process so easy! The installers were very professional, including taking great care to not damage my brand new roof! Everything went very smoothly. We decided on the whole house battery backup and are very glad we did. Since the system went live in mid-October, we have had two outages. The system automatically switched over with about a 3-second delay and allowed us to carry on with our activities. I highly recommend Independent Power Systems!

  • Great Company
    Great company. They provided excellent customer support from prior to the sale decision making, to support after the installation was completed. Highly recommended.

    We are very happy with our solar system. Dan was very helpful in helping us decide on the size for our needs and the entire installation process was streamlined.

  • Outstanding Service
    I have been working with IPS for nearly 10 years. , They installed our power system and have helped maintain it since. Their service is always outstanding, and we are thrilled with the system (and with making a difference by being off-grid). I strongly recommend IPS to anyone for their expertise and great service.

  • Very Professional
    5 years ago Independent Power Systems installed panels on my house. They were very professional, the installation was flawless and the panels worked great. I just moved to a new house and immediately contact them for an estimate for panels on the new house. They came promptly, gave me very good feedback and I will go with the new panels in the near future.

  • Great Experience
    IPS installed a 4.5kW SunPower PV system on my roof in late 2006, and it's consistently generated its design specification of an average of 550 kWhr/month since then, every year for the past 13 years, literally maintenance- and incidence-free. After increasing my home's efficiency (mostly by replacing incandescent bulbs with LEDs for 1/10th their power cost), my home now uses sufficiently less electricity to power my electric car, so in addition to satisfying all my electric-power needs for the first ten years with the rooftop array, I'm now actually driving on sunlight too. Though I'm always happy to see IPS employees - they were great to work with during the design and installation of my system 13 years ago - I'm ecstatic I haven't had to call them out to deal with anything associated with my array since then. Mine really has been an install, power-up, and forget the experience with their SunPower PV technology. I couldn't possibly be happier.
