Why SoL Energy?
Ken Olson is the President & CEO of SoL Energy and has been working in solar since the 1980s. He was one of the original co-founders of Solar Energy International (SEI) and served as it’s Executive Director for its first ten years. In 1999 he went on to found SoL Energy in Carbondale, CO.
Regional and national leaders in sustainability have trusted SoL Energy to design and install innovative, beautiful and well built solar system, including: Amory Lovins, (http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2007/01/22/mr-green), the Rocky Mountain Institute (www.RMI.org), and The Third Street Center (www.thirdstreetcenter.net).
Sol Energy has been expanding the use of solar energy in the Roaring Fork Valley and throughout Colorado for 20+ years. We installed our first project in 2003 and have a portfolio of projects ranging from small residential systems, off-grid systems, and large multi-building municipal projects.
But don't take our word for it...
Ken has been my go-to guy for PVs, and is generally considered the best PV expert in our PV-rich area. He designed and installed my state-of-the-art, superefficient home and office’s PV system which can run resiliently with or without the the grid.
We were very pleased with the entire process of adding on solar, as well as working with Sol Energy. Ken was very up front with our costs, our rewards, and how the job would be done. The installation team was very professional, kept the site clean & safe, and were easy on my shingled.roof. Ken stayed with it all the way through the entire process, including rebates, until it was up & running and hooked up to our computer for easy access. I basically did nothing …..except sit in the shade & watch it all happen. We would definitely recommend Sol Energy to everyone.
I work in the utility industry and know many of the solar installers in the valley and statewide. My wife and I chose to work with SoL Energy because their experience, level of customer service and personal approach were the best fit for us, and we have been very happy with our system and the ongoing support.
