Solar Side Up, LLC BBB Business Review


The team at Solar Side Up is very friendly and helpful. Michael walked me through the process of getting financed, and was flexible with us as we got everything in order. The system is working great, installation went smoothly, and I trust that I can reach out whenever I have questions.

"We had a great experience buying from Solar Side Up. They handled all the permitting and inspection, helped us get financing, and the installation was done a month sooner than promised. The staff were helpful and responsive, and answered all the questions we had."

— Scott F. (Google Review)

After researching solar installers and equipment, Solar Side Up provided me with a state of the art system that has performed perfectly since its installation in Sept. 2020. Worked with Jeff, Geoff and the installer Satchel, who all are excellent, highly knowledgeable and were very responsive to all my questions. Design and installation of the system maximized solar production with their placement. SSU coordinated all necessary permits and I was pleased when Xcel connected my system very quickly upon completion. Monitoring production with Enphase app provides all the information that any energy ‘nerd’ would love having, but SSU also monitors output of its customers as an extra bonus. My neighbors love the clean look of the solar panels and their installation, hoping to also benefit from our sunny climate with green power. Would highly recommend the team at SSU if you are investigating a solar system!

Everyone at Solar Side Up is wonderful to work with, you are their #1 priority. Michael has gone above and beyond and has fixed our issues that we had from dealing with Solar USA. I would recommend Solar Side Up to anyone in CO who wants to go solar.

We recently had solar panels installed at our home by Solar Side Up and everything about the entire process went perfectly and without any difficulty or problems. I did a lot of research prior to our install and Solar Side checked off all my concerns, they are knowledgeable, experienced, use the latest solar technology and their price is very competitive. They took care of the entire permitting process. I needed the panels up before the end of the year for the my tax rebate and they promised and met the year end deadline. I highly recommend Solar Side Up for anyone interested in adding solar to their home.

Love this company. From our very first meeting Michael was easy to deal with and answered all of my questions...which were many. The panels were installed quickly and without a mess. Geoff the engineer even sat and had coffee with me after my final inspection. Great product for a great price! Highly recommend.

Solar Side Up took care of all the details, and followed up at every step to guide me through the process. Everything went very smoothly, the installer was quick, and they guided me through the loan process and the rebate application. I'm very happy with my solar panel system!

Solar Side Up installed our system in 2014, worked hard to do a ground mount that other contractors wouldn’t do, as our metal roof wouldn’t take a solar array. Recently I discovered one of the micro inverters had failed. SSU ordered the replacement part and walked me through the (easy) replacement so I’m back at full power!

— Doug B. (Google Review)

Solar Side Up installed our solar panels in 2016 and it is by far the best investment we've every made to control our energy costs. Having moved from Texas to Colorado, we wanted to take full advantage of the 300 days of sun here. We purchased the system so that any future homeowners would not have issues associated with leases, and we also took full advantage of the 30% energy credits. Our energy bills in Texas easily averaged over $500 per month. Since installing our system, our energy bills are under $50 per month, and most of our bill is for gas heat charges.

Solar Side Up did a tremendous job with the installation when other companies told us our roof line would not produce enough results to warrant the expense. Our system allows us to monitor it via our phone or laptop (24/7), and we receive monthly production reports detailing the output and performance.

I would highly recommend Solar Side Up if you are considering a solar system for your home. They are tremendous people and pride themselves on delivering outstanding service.

*Update* The Solar Side Up guys installed my system 5 years ago and it has been working great! Now we needed our roof replaced and their team handled start to finish my solar removal, my roof replacement, reinstalling my solar and my new solar system upgrades as well. I’m getting a great tax credit with their help. They scheduled the work right in sync between solar and roofing and then solar and upgrades. Start to finish in about two weeks. Couldn’t be happier and I highly recommend them. Nobody will work on my roof and solar but Solar Side Up!

Jeff installed our solar system in 2014, and we have been nothing but thrilled! The installation was timely, tidy and professional. Jeff provided us all of the paperwork for us to get our tax credits and to deal with the electric company and roof inspection (req'd by the County). The system was sized properly, and we get a utility refund yearly. Thanks Jeff and Solar Side-Up.

John & Patty - Solar Side Up Customers in Evergreen, CO

"Why did we put solar on this house? Because it makes sense. It makes sense for the environment, it makes sense for our pocketbook..."

Get the truth about home solar! 

There's a lot of misinformation out there regarding solar and depending on who you talk with, you may just end up more confused.

Some talk about great financing available at 1.99%, but fail to mention the significant fees attached to that. Others sell solar and then have someone else install the systems - or cut corners with unreliable products or by not using a master electrician.


We use trusted, industry leading products and technology for every project and installation is done by our Master Electrician.

LET'S TALK! We'll explain financing, tax credits, net-metering and everything you need to know in order to make a smart, informed decision about Solar.

No pressure, just the facts! Get informed, not sold.
