I have been thinking about how I size a solar PV system. The answer seems simple. You size it to the customer's electrical load. Is that the right answer though? On the face of it, it would seem so. Over more than a decade of designing my thought has changed and frankly I am better at what I do. It has been driven by my exposure to the processes of others as well as my thoughts on results. I see other designs, the promises made and...Jeff Hickson LEED APread more
Elon Musk Admits: "Significant Mistakes" Were Made with the Solar Roof. Where Do Consumers Go from Here?
As a well-established solar energy company with experience installing a variety of photovoltaic equipment, we are used to answering questions about the quality and trustworthiness of brands and their products. We’ve worked with a number of manufacturers over the years, and we’re not afraid to honestly communicate our opinion on the value of a product if we feel it would not serve our clients well.

So the news the last few days are about "the big green solar company" with Elon Musk as the largest shareholder. We have been getting some questions as to why Tesla, a already in debt cash burning company would want a massively in debt even substantially larger cash burner and one of the worst stocks that is publicly listed. The truth is obvious to a few, however most don't see it.Ted "The Wolf" Strzelecki

Right now they are on the high side and consumers don't know who is really worth their salt. Simply Googling a company can give...read more
Well another year has gone. Although a cliche stated each and every year, this year really has gone way, way to fast. It seems like yesterday we were discussing opening our Dallas office. At the same time, it feels like it has been open forever. We have grown our office several times in just a few short years. Proof positive of the hard and diligent work by our dedicated team.Ted "The Wolf" Strzelecki

It seems as of late the myths and "ol wives tales" are getting more and more ridiculous. This is alarming because you would figure with the internet and solar rapidly growing they would become extinct. Our CFO decided to take a moment away from spreadsheets and payroll while in between our quarterlies to review and hopefully put to bed these so called "truths" of the less educated about solar.Ted "The Wolf" Strzelecki
