You’ve decided to go solar. Congrats! You’re making a big step toward increasing the value of your home, saving the environment, and cutting your electric bill. With solar becoming more and more popular, there is an endless supply of companies to choose from when considering adding solar to your home or business. 

You can choose to work with a larger, corporate company or invest in your community with a local solar company. We’d like to share with you the reasons why supporting your local solar installer is a win-win.

4 reasons why a local solar company is a perfect choice:

  1. We Give Back – At Sandbox Solar, everyone – from the owners to the installers – calls Northern Colorado home. We love supporting our local community and fostering community involvement with solar energy. For the last several years, we have worked with Colorado State University studying agrivoltaics and Colorado solar. We are using this research to see how well agriculture and solar can coexist. Our goal is to create a business model where we will be able to simultaneously grow food and generate renewable energy for Fort Collins and across Colorado. In a recent collaboration with The Growing Project, we donated a 600W, two-panel solar array for the garden in The FoCo Commons. The solar panels power a USB outlet for phone chargers and other devices for anyone in need. It is also designed to educate the community about the potential of agrivoltaics. 
  2. Your Investment Keeps Money Local – Investing in a local solar company means that your money stays right here in Northern Colorado. Utilizing a local solar company helps foster local economic growth. We’re proud to continue the cycle by shopping local, supporting local nonprofits, and partnering with other local contractors to strengthen Colorado’s economy.
  3. It’s a Partnership – When you invest with a local solar company, it’s not just a transaction, it’s a partnership. Every installation is just as much an investment for us as it is for you, the customer. We’ll help you understand the ins and outs of your solar system so you know how it works and what you are gaining. After installation, we are always available for questions and further assistance.
  4. Local Insight – When you invest in a solar system, it’s important to work with a company that knows both the installation and financial side of solar. At Sandbox Solar, we have been providing solar for years, which means that not only are we well versed in which systems and install types work best for our climate, but we’re also experts on the federal, state, and local tax credits and incentives you can apply for with your solar system.
