Analysis

This homeowner was very much financially driven. He was only concerned with payback and the best bang for his buck. The home itself sits on a large plot of land so a ground mounted system was an excellent option. The south facing orientation of the panels allow for a ton of sunlight to be captured, all day, all year, to maximize savings and increase ROI. We had plenty of land space to put in as large of a system as needed, but we made sure to size the system to the homeowner’s usage in order to limit any over production while maximizing savings throughout the year.
