Renewable resources… it’s not just a buzz word anymore. Harnessing and utilizing the power of our sun has become sound fiscal policy and a new way to define your corporate culture in terms of being “green.” From an energy savings standpoint, purchasing an energy producing system that allows you to predict the cost of (or in essence prepay) your electricity bills for a minimum of 25 years, makes sound dollars and sense. The other half of that benefits picture is this: Through tax credits and state incentives, you only end up paying about 50% of the system’s actual cost to engineer and install this important technology, which, in addition to reduced energy costs, allows you further revenue streams through renewable energy credits.
Atlantic Energy Concepts offers complete engineering, installation and monitoring services from site surveys to completion of a fully functioning, state-of-the-art solar system. We are able to serve owners, contractors and investors in developing projects from feasibility studies, financial evaluation, conceptual design, engineering documents, project management, commissioning, and rebate administration.
Developing a solar energy system requires evaluating the site, building, budget, environmental and management goals of your project. A solar site survey provides you with the scoping analysis and preliminary design of the site’s installation options to allow you to make an informed decision that will be optimal for your location and budget.
Survey results include:
- Space and location requirements
- System size
- Solar energy production
- Cost of installation and financing options
- Electrical system and utility interconnection evaluation
- Tax credit, Grant and Renewable Energy Credit opportunities
