solar engineering, commissioning and technical support services

Taitem delivers technical services to solar project designers, contractors, developers and asset managers, leveraging our deep experience with solar PV system design, installation, service and commissioning.

From 2013-2018, Taitem operated a solar contracting division, installing over 300 residential and small commercial solar PV systems, totaling nearly 4MW. In 2016, Taitem was awarded 2 of 3 statewide quality awards conferred by NYSERDA. While the firm closed its solar installation division in early 2019, the expertise developed as a contractor informs our work as consulting engineers.

Warranty service for existing Taitem solar clients is coordinated by Service Manager Dave Tedeyan. Taitem continues to actively monitor performance of existing clients’ systems. Contact Dave with any questions, issues or request for technical support services.

Solar engineering, including structural and electrical, is coordinated by Senior Design Engineer Yossi Bronsnick. Contractors and project developers are invited to request a proposal.

Solar commissioning is coordinated by Nate Goodell, certified BCx professional. Learn more about Taitem’s commissioning services on the Cx services for Solar PV systems page and in the Taitem team’s article about best practices published by SolarPro magazine in April 2018.
