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.

via SaveTheClimate U.S. utilities could use three technologies to increase the utilization of transmission lines, enabling 500 GW of renewables projects to win interconnection approval, say industry experts Jigar Shah and Rob Gramlich, in an op-ed published by Utility Dive. These three transmission technologies – advanced power flow control, dynamic line ratings, and advanced topology – have…Read More
Recently, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) published a research paper modeling operations and maintenance costs at solar power plants. Embedded in the PDF presentation of that research paper is the spreadsheet model developed on the back of the equations created in the operations and maintenance (O&M) modeling. These equations, and the assumptions that built…Read More
