Our Process

We Listen

The first thing we do is listen to you! Are you ready to do solar? Do you just want more information? We start by doing a projection of what your electric usage is and how much solar it would take to replace all or part of your electric usage. We will estimate what you can fit on your roof or property and how much it will cost. There is a lot to know before making the investment in solar. We will guide you through the process. Just give us a call or send an email.

Design Process

After you decide that solar is right for you, we analyze the site using advanced shade analysis tools. Using the shade analysis with the size and placement of your solar array we can predict your electricity generation and the decrease in your electric bill.

Our thorough engineering processes will assure your that our systems will operate efficiently with little or no maintenance. We know the right way to connect you to the electric grid and the understand the intricacies of designing a solar PV system.

We Take Care of Paperwork

We take care of the rebate paperwork and get all the permits. There is no extra charge for this valuable service.
