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.

*Micro-Inverters vs. Traditional Inverters explained in future blog post*

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