Renew Solar Construction System Components:
  • (60) Siliken 235 Watt Solar Modules
  • (30) Enphase D-380 Micro-Inverters
  • (1) Enphase Envoy-Web Based Energy Monitoring System
How long from contract signing to commissioning of system?
Approx. 3-months due to delays in permitting. Most of the time elapsed was in educating the city on the new micro-inverter technology. This project would typically take thirty days from contract signing to commissioning.


* Photovoltaic “Solar” Energy systems all have Inverters that convert DC (Direct Current) into AC (Alternating Current) that we all commonly use in our homes and business’s. Micro-Inverters convert the DC power to AC directly from the solar module.
Traditional inverters convert DC to AC right before the electrical service panel.


Cost Breakdown:
Contract Cost $91,593
Edison Rebate $17,289
Federal Tax Credit $22,291
Net Cost $52,013 Year of Installation


The Bottom Line…
