Hi, I'm John Weaver, your commercial solar energy consultant. When you work with me, you get 15 years of financial, engineering, and construction experience to guide you through your project -- from concept, to paperwork, to digging the dirt and throwing that final switch.

What I'll do for your solar project:
Provide a financial analysis, including electricity production, revenue stream projections, tax consequences, and operations and maintenance costs.
Deliver a complete cost breakdown of components, labor, and services. This includes: comparisons with national data and profit margins.
Design the layout of a complete solar system, defining a bill of materials.
Handle the paperwork that drives federal incentives, the local power company, permits and state level requirements.
Act as your Project Developer and guide you through professional scrutiny – with electrical and structural engineers, CPAs and bankers, permitting and hiring contractors.
