Initial Conversation

The first consultation is vital for customizing the commercial solar project to your company’s needs. During this discussion, we’ll explore the various solar project type options available, and tailor towards the solutions that best align with your unique needs and energy goals. We’ll also consider your solar project timeline to ensure that it meets your desired deadlines and objectives.

We’ll thoroughly investigate the financial incentives available, taking into consideration your eligibility for rebates, tax credits, and other incentives that can significantly reduce the solar project’s overall cost.

Additionally, we believe in transparent communication and will have an honest conversation about your property’s solar potential. We will discuss the property’s ROI potential, including an assessment of its solar irradiance, shading, and other factors that can impact system performance. This honest dialogue serves as the foundation for a successful and customized commercial solar project tailored to your unique requirements, goals, and constraints.

Feasibility & Engineering

The second step in the commercial solar process involves creating Feasibility and Engineering reports, which are crucial for the success of your solar project. In this phase, we delve into the project’s design details, considering factors like system size and panel placement. We determine the ideal system size, panel orientation, and wiring placement, ensuring a seamless connection to the inverter and your building’s meter. If needed, we also integrate additional systems like battery storage to align the design with your specific needs and objectives.

Once we have a preliminary design in place, the project assessment approval process comes into play, where we seek necessary approvals and permits required. This involves complying with local regulations and ensuring that the project aligns with all necessary adherences to safety and environmental standards.

An integral part of this phase is the on-site visit, where our experts assess your property’s unique conditions, such as sun exposure, shading, and structural considerations. Following the site visit, we make design adjustments as needed to optimize solar system performance and address any site-specific challenges. This collaborative approach ensures that your solar project is not only feasible but also tailored to maximize its efficiency and benefits.
