Installing a solar energy system can be a significant financial investment. As with any investment, good due diligence should be performed, which in this case means determining if it is actually technically feasible to install solar on your buildings. In addition, SolPowered looks at each building to determine whether or not you will make enough profits over the 20-year contract to justify the investment and, if yes, what system specifications will maximize your returns.
Preparation of an RFP / Selection of a Developer
Once you have decided to install solar, the next big question is who are you going to have develop it? Preparing and releasing a Request For Proposal is one way to see what is out there in the market, and allows you to compare prices, designs, and proposed strategies. SolPowered will not only help you ask all the right questions, but also help you wade through the technical jargon so you can understand what you are selecting. By providing an objective, expert perspective, you can be sure you are making the best decision possible.
