Want to Eliminate Your Electric Bill?

The majority of our customers connect their PV systems to the grid to ensure
they have 24/7 access to electricity:

  • When the sun is shining, their panels deliver the energy they need.
  • When the sun goes down, they draw their electricity from the utility grid.

But depending on your power needs, you may wish to install an off-grid solar PV system. With this approach, we'll connect your panels to on-site batteries to make certain you have guaranteed access to uninterrupted power.

Additional benefits of our off-grid solar solutions include

  • Complete protection from power outages
  • No more utility bills – ever

We owe a great debt of gratitude to Bob and his knowledge and team for helping to create an amazing PV carport for us. I’m sure you would be delighted with whatever you engage him to help you with.

I have had the pleasure of working with Bob for several years. In the beginning, Bob taught me important basics. Over a short period of time I was equipped with the language and tools to develop projects which resulted in more than 7 million dollars of sales. Over the past 5 years Bob has been a tremendous resource handling everything from initial ROI analysis to system design, rebate/ utility paperwork, city permitting, material sourcing, and final project paperwork. I can truly say Solar Design Studios played a major role in my success.

A sincere Thank You!
