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.

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.
