Why are these ads promising free solar panels?

While not exactly a scam, these ads talking about free solar panels are extremely misleading. Most often these ads are from national contractors who don’t want you to get a bid from a local solar company like us. Let’s get into some of the details and do some myth busting!

Misleading claim #1: You can get “free solar panels” or go solar with “no cost”.

Reality check: If you do click on these ads, you’ll find that the no cost solar they are talking about is really $0 down financing. This is something that most installers – including us – will offer. We have multiple financing offers through multiple lenders so that you can go solar without any money up front and start building equity in your solar system now.

Misleading claim #2: You can get paid to go solar.

Reality check: No one is going to cut you a check for the full cost of a solar system, but there are incentives to go solar. The largest incentive is the 30% federal tax credit. This credit is available to any homeowner that purchases a solar panel system and reduces the cost of your system by a full 30%! If your city or utility offer other incentives that you’re eligible for, we’ll include that in your free quote. As a local installer that has been in business since 2005, we know the ins and outs of Colorado solar better than anyone.

Misleading claim #3: They know a “secret” that solar installers don’t want you to know about.

Reality check: As intriguing as that sounds, there is no secret to saving money with solar. A great solar panel system installed by experienced technicians from a company that will provide you with long-term support costs real money but can also be a really smart investment. If you want to go solar, Namaste Solar is the top Colorado solar installer for a number of reasons: we’re fully local, we’re employee-owned, we’re a Certified B Corp, and we’ve been doing this since 2005.

Don’t feel discouraged about solar!

We get it. It sounded like a great deal and an exciting opportunity to get free solar panels for your home. But don’t be discouraged – solar could still be a great deal for you! While you can’t get free solar panels in Colorado, you can go solar with $0 down financing. While there are no secret programs for free solar panels, there is an incredible 30% tax credit available right now that can amount to $10,000 savings on the average system price. And while there isn’t an option for “no cost” solar, solar does pay for itself over time.

I cant say enough about Namaste Solar. They were with us every step of the way. They carefully evaluated our available sun exposure and provided a realistic timeline for a financial breakeven point. In our case, about 13 years assuming we could offset 75% of our needs with solar. Their engineers evaluated our roof and made design recommendations to support the weight of the panels. These improvements were done by Namaste at the time of install. The first attempt at install had to be delayed as the installer noted atypical roof deterioration and recommended we have that evaluated before install to avoid having to remove the panels for a new roof. At this point, the panels were on the roof and had to be reloaded onto the truck. Our shingle manufacturer agreed that the roof was failing (not from hail damage) and replaced the roof. The second attempt at instal went smoothly and we are up and running. Technical support to get the monitoring system running was excellent. A technician came to our home, installed a wireless extender (at no additional charge), and made sure I could operate the system. Namaste employees were extremely, friendly, helpful, competent and professional in every way. I recommend them highly.
Namaste was so easy to work with. They were professional, on schedule, made everything understandable. We are so happy to have reduced electricity bills and to be contributing to carbon reduction for our city and the planet!
I chose Namaste Solar because they’re a worker owned company. I figured that if people have a stake in the company they work for, they’ll do a good job. With the solar panels installed, they not only did a good job, but an excellent job.
