Shaping The Future of Renewable Energy
Our development and integration process first begins by understanding you and your needs. Our goal is to save you money and not just to sell your business a solar system. After you provide us with 12 months of your energy bills, we complete a comprehensive site survey. Next comes a detailed Energy Analysis, which weighs in the factors and information you provided to us about your business’s needs. Finally, we compare solar production against your energy usage in 15-minute data points, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. For every customer proposal we complete, we conduct many hours of detailed analysis to ensure that we’re presenting the most accurate and complete options for you.
