The purchasing of a solar system, whether it is a solar electric system or a solar hot water heater can be a confusing and complicated process. Over the years we have developed a 4 step process to make the purchase and installation easier to understand.
Every solar installation is unique because of many factors. An on-site visit is probably necessary to make certain every variable is accounted for prior to the design of your new solar system. The most important piece of information from this phase is sun access. If the system is going in during construction or remodeling, a copy of the construction drawings will be helpful in addition to the on site- evaluation. For retrofits, a thorough evaluation of possible mounting areas must be conducted. While we are there we will check your mechanical and electrical systems. These systems will be affected by the installation of a new solar electrical installation. A thorough site evaluation is critical for a successful design.
