Saxon was considering a standard solar installation for his coffee roasting business before SCE advised him of the issues associated with the many items creating shade on the main roof. This site has large trees to the East and many chimney stacks and telegraph poles to negotiate to avoid shading on the panels. A traditional system of this size would simply not operate under these shading conditions and avoiding the shading would have the system reduced in size by 60%. Saxon wanted the additional system size together with the monitoring and safety systems associated with a Tigo SmartSolar. Pablo and Rusty’s is enjoying average annual kWH savings of 46,235.28.
SCE Energy worked closely with us to achieve a carefully designed smart solar system. We have a complex network of meter boxes and they went above and beyond to ensure the system was configured for maximum capacity and usability. We gave them multiple challenges like roof obstructions, flues, trees, old meter boxes etc however they navigated all of it and ensured it was all checked and tested for the best results. The final result is a professional and clean solution and I’d happily recommend them to anyone.
