We work with a lot of clients whose homes aren’t considered “ideal” for solar. Yes, it’s easy to install a solar array on a nice, wide, south-facing roof. But there are other options, and we’re happy to explore those options until we find one that’s a perfect fit. In order to find a sunny spot…

“We’ve had a great experience with SunDaySolar.  The company did excellent work in maximizing the number of panels for our space, and demonstrated installation skill with our roof type.  SunDaySolar expertly guided us through the available incentives, and when one of our inverters needed a reset, they were out there the next day for us. …

They also have a solar thermal system heating the water for the manager’s apartment and office warehouse complex. The systems were installed using the…
