Colorado Springs, CO, April 14, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- Jobs in Colorado’s solar industry grew by 20 percent in 2016, and EcoMark Solar of Denver plans to continue that trend with its own workforce in 2017. The company is hiring now for positions in administration, solar electrician, installer, commissioning technician and solar sales/consultants, all along the Front Range.
EcoMark recently acquired McDonald Solar and Wind, Inc., a leading solar energy installation company in Colorado Springs. The company retained most of its employees there and is looking to expand its Colorado Springs workforce.
“The solar industry is one of the fastest growing nationwide and Colorado ranks in the top 10 states for solar jobs so the industry has great career potential,” says Alex Valdez, EcoMark Solar CEO/President. “A number of schools in Colorado offer certification in various solar jobs and other training information is available from SEIA, the Solar Energy Information Association (seia.org).

“The industry is growing because residents are very open to having the ‘energy independence’ that comes with owning your own solar energy system,” Valdez explains.
EcoMark Solar says its approach has been one of a consultant to potential solar buyers. “After our staff determines what kind of system works best for the home owner, we design the system and handle all of the details for the installation,” explains Valdez.
EcoMark offers systems free of third party interference and encumbrance so if the consumer decides to sell their home, no lease transfer is needed. “The real estate industry is finding that purchased solar systems add value to a home for sale but a leased system may be detrimental because buyers may not want to take on a long-term lease,” Valdez adds.
“Today’s solar systems qualify for a 30 percent Federal tax credit that the customer captures and can use as they choose,” he explains. “We offer financing if needed and a 25-year manufacturer’s warranty that covers all major components. We want to help more people in more communities become energy independent and educate them about how solar can be instrumental in that goal.”
