Once the feasibility of your home or business has been determined, our solar design team will gather additional information as needed to create a commercial solar design that delivers solar energy to your property with maximum value and efficiency. Our skilled and highly trained solar installation team will guide you in making smart decisions about your system that will help lower operating costs and maximize yields.

Photovoltaic (PV) panels are very reliable and are designed to perform over very long life cycles even beyond their 25-year warranty periods. The solar design must combine the technology choices with good engineering and installation practices so that the balance of the system provides a long lifecycle as well.

You can trust our South Coast Solar design team and our engineering partners across the area to plan solar panel systems that will stand the test of time and provide a lifetime of sustainable energy, with minimal disruptions to your electrical service during installation.

Our Guiding Solar Design Considerations for your Project Include:

  • Accounting for local landscaping and future vegetation growth.

  • Condition of existing electrical equipment.

  • Future expansion plans.

  • Roof design, materials, and warranty.
