Where We Come From

EcoMark Solar was founded in 2010 with a passion for providing solar electricity to Colorado homeowners. From our humble grassroots beginning, we are now one of the largest solar companies on the Front Range.

While we have grown rapidly over the past few years, our focus remains on Colorado homeowners. They are our neighbors and our goal is to provide precise information on solar panel systems that are designed to save homeowners the maximum amount of money and gain energy independence.

What We Do

We have pioneered the affordable ownership movement within the solar industry and now have operations in multiple communities throughout the Front Range. We are not simply a re-seller for national and multinational companies; in fact, we are one of very few Colorado owned companies that sources, designs, sells, and installs their own solar systems. By doing this we can ensure that our customers work only with us through each step of the process. This ensures that we deliver the highest quality products, services, and support to our customers while supporting local jobs and a strong Colorado economy.
