A solar and wind site survey is used to answer several questions for a potential buyer of solar and wind electric equipment:
1) is solar electric feasible for the particular property
2) where should the equipment be optimally placed
3) how much equipment can be accommodated
4) is wind turbine deployment feasible for the particular property
5) optimal size of equipment
6) regulatory issues
A Solar Site Survey is performed at the prospective physical location of the potential buyer. Various measurements are taken to determine where solar insolation can be maximized, taking account of various surfaces, their pitch angles from horizontal, and obstructions. An "image based" approach is used to illustrate where the solar modules should be placed. These images and parameters can be used to inquire about price and delivery options from qualified solar installation vendors and/or for Do it Yourself consideration. An added feature is a Pro Forma illustration of solar system size showing anticipated energy generation in kWHRS. A narrative is included noting various financial subsidies from State and Federal sources that can effect both the system sizing and financial worthiness of the solar investment.
Site Survey Deliverable s
The Site Survey results are primarily delivered in machine readable form via email attachments. This facilitates the client soliciting multiple installation vendor bids electronically. Importantly, each installation vendor will be proposing a solution on an 'apples to apples' basis so the client need not be faced with the problem of comparing a wild array of design configurations.
Using the Solar site services benchmark design, we will propose a spectrum of technologies, components and prices. Availability of solar product inventories, vendor backlog, and desirability of obtaining the solar job have significant impact on final price and installation lead time.
Solar Advisory Services
There are numerous vendors in the marketplace. While most consumers would not commit to make a capital purchase receiving only one vendor's estimate, a complication is that soliciting proposals from multiple vendors will result in multiple system size configurations, varying price levels, multiple economic payoffs each with their own interpretation, small and large required deposits, friendly and unfriendly contract language, varying warranties, and different financing options, to name a few of the buying considerations in an evaluated review process. Solar and Wind Advisory Services assists the consumer decision making process by acting as an 'independent' liaison between the buyer and vendors. Being able to communicate in the language of the solar vendors with a better understanding of forecast variables and assumptions, will help a buyer to make an informed decision based on fact rather than vendor sales speak.
