Expertise, QA & Reliability


benefits of commissioning your solar system

  • CONTINUITY – Single entity involved throughout the entire project ensures any issues are identified and corrected before they impact the customer
  • RISK MANAGEMENT – Earlier identification and response results in fewer contractor call-backs, lower installation costs and a higher percentage of on-time, on-budget and fully operational projects
  • SECURITY – 3rd party verification ensures that savings predictions are reasonable, met or exceeded by the final system and will persist well into the systems operational lifetime
