In a nutshell:
Information is collected to create the most realistic energy system possible.
A site visit takes approximately 1 hour to complete and comes at no cost to the inquiring party.
In Further Detail:
Measurements and photographs of a roof's interior & exterior or the ground-area are taken. These help to accurately predict a solar PV system’s output. The location's shading is validated using a Public Utilities Commission (PUC) approved solar pathfinder instrument where the ideal solar location is determined to be. This reading is utilized in addition to the award-winning solar design software that our systems are modeled on - Aurora Solar - which helps to improve shading results through the use of LIDAR (laser) satellite data.
We look at the utility bill to determine the annual electricity usage at your location.
This is done to accurately size your system, which is designed for the current NH power market. Your utility provider’s four most recent electricity rate changes are taken into account, providing a true annual perspective. Big surprises on the electric bill are discussed to establish why the bill is unreasonable.
The electrical outlay of the area is important to understand.
SunFlower documents any critical electrical components present on-site.
Unique characteristics of the home, building or property are discussed in addition to any roadblocks identified by SunFlower. We review the next steps in the process and provide advice on recommended agencies to contact regarding a potential solar installation.
We can outline simple ecological integration methods that encourage a solar array to
fully coexist with wildlife and the natural environment around it.
These methodologies come at no sacrifice to the solar performance (and actually benefit it). We’ll establish the next point of contact and be on our way.
SunFlower performs a truly comprehensive analysis of property nuances
and solar potential, all while keeping the preference of the
customer first in mind when designing a solar project.
