Solar Project Developers

Solar project development is more competitive than ever before. And this is a good thing given the environmental challenges our planet faces. The more clean power we bring on as a society, the better.

But with so many different options, why would you choose Solar Design Studio for end-to-end turnkey solutions?

Below are just some of the factors that distinguish us from the rest of the pack.

Your Energy and Financial Goals Remain Central

At Solar Design Studio, we’re experts at helping clients extract the greatest possible returns from their clean power investment. This process involves delivering the highest energy output at the lowest possible cost.

One of the reasons we’re able to consistently deliver on that promise stems from our objectivity as an independent engineering and design firm. Because we’re not affiliated with any PV manufacturers or financial organizations, we’re able to focus 100% of our attention on your needs – not someone else’s.

We Understand the Bigger Picture

Another key component of the Solar Design Studio formula is our holistic approach to PV project development.

While many firms focus on specialization, we’ve chosen a very different path.

Long-term success involves bringing together many moving parts in a way that provides optimal value for the client. And that’s why we’ve invested years cultivating an expansive skillset to ensure every aspect of your project delivers results – under budget and on time.

The 3 main pillars of this holistic approach include:

1. Feasibility Analyses

Many developers are well versed in the technical details. But they overlook the importance of determining a project’s true value.

This often leads to costly investments, underwhelming returns, or both.

At Solar Design Studio, we’ll only recommend moving forward if the numbers truly add up. This is why each feasibility study includes:

  • Technology Selection
  • Design Services
  • Component
  • Bid Document Preparation
  • Utility Interconnection

2. Engineering

The next step involves completely designing your project from the ground up – a process that includes:

  • Technology Selection
  • Design Services
  • Component
  • Bid Document Preparation
  • Utility Interconnection

3. Project Management

Bringing your project online is the final piece of the puzzle. But this step extends well beyond the technical aspects of physically installing your system. For example, we invest ample time dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s to ensure your project remains compliant with all local, state, and federal regulatory codes.

This stage of the process also includes:

  • Permitting
  • Project Oversight
  • Scheduling
  • Commissioning Services
  • O&M Oversight
  • Reporting

One Final Reason Why Clients Choose Solar Design Studio

There is one final variable that helps to distinguish our solar project development services.

We rely on a suite of advanced modeling tools to help us quickly and accurately prepare deliverables for our clients. Every minute that your project remains offline represents lost savings and diminished returns. By using cutting-edge technology, we’re able to eliminate delays and get our clients up and running in the shortest timeframes possible.

What Our Clients Are Saying

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!
