Steps to Installing Renewable Energy:
PHASE 1: CONSULTATION
This is the first step, whether you choose to move forward with a solar-energy system or not. We will explore the benefits and advantages with you.
Site Evaluation & Feasibility Study:
Every client is unique, so we conduct a site survey to determine roof slope, orientation, shading, solar panel location, and solar-power distribution. We want to make sure your site is viable, from both an engineering and financial-return perspective, before proceeding with solar-system design and installation.
Energy Production & Solar-Project Financial Modeling:
We will provide a detailed solar-energy proposal that includes the following:
- Suggested solar-panel system size
- Renewable-energy savings
- Payback calculations
- Cash flow analysis
- Environmental benefits
We will identify federal and local incentives, solar tax credits, depreciation, and other benefits that improve your investment.
PHASE 2: SOLAR SYSTEM DESIGN
When you decide to proceed, our engineering team will design your solar-energy system. Designs typically include professional CAD drawings to illustrate the solar panel and inverter selections and solar-panel system layout, an electrical one-line diagram with calculations, and structural and wind analysis.
Permit and Incentive Processing:
We will submit and manage all the paperwork for federal and state renewable-energy incentives, utility interconnection, and local permitting requirements.
PHASE 3: SOLAR SYSTEM INSTALLATION
Construction Management and Installation:
Our solar-power installers will manage the entire solar-system installation process and all necessary equipment. Teams of installers are led by a licensed master electrician.
We will complete official interconnection with your utility company, walkthrough training, and a comprehensive commissioning checklist prior to activating the system.
PHASE 4: SOLAR POWER GENERATION
Monitoring and system maintenance:
We will routinely monitor your solar-energy system’s performance and alert you of any problems.
- Web-based solar-energy monitoring to ensure system production.
- Real-time solar-power monitoring program for lobby display.
- Scheduled solar panel and system maintenance.
- Repairs as needed.
Our success is tied to that of our client partners, and we offer various types of support to ensure that mutual success:
- Marketing and PR support to promote your solar-system installation.
- Solar-power rebate and incentive document preparation and filing.
- Renewable-energy policy navigation.
