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.
Call me for a 15-minute consultation, and we'll determine if we are the right fit. You can also contact me here.
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.

The Massachusetts SMART program looks to increase this trend with “agrovoltaic” incentives for solar co-located with crops. They’re called solar farms for a reason – we deploy our seeds of steel, we water the ground with copper, and…Read More
The State specified that retail electricity suppliers must provide customers with clean electricity during defined ‘clean peak periods’, at less than $0.005/kWh averaged across annual usage. The State of Massachusetts has put forth plans that will require retail electricity utilities to provide buyers with cleaner and cheaper electricity options during the most expensive and dirtiest…Read More
The state’s upcoming solar program looks as if it will very quickly move through allocated volume, stranding developers and installers and tens of millions of dollars worth of projects. The State of Massachusetts has a solar powered problem on its hands. The problem might be that the state has created a program that is too…Read More
The researchers at the US Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) are trying to bring back, and refine, a solar cell technique from the 50-60s to help make the same solar cells as are on NASA’s Mars rovers. The technique makes solar cells from gallium arsenide that are already hitting 25.3% efficiency. David Young,…Read More
