At Nova West Solar we first inspect your property to help with the most cost effective location of your new system. We then take into account your last twelve months of electrical consumption on a monthly basis and size a system to meet your needs. Part of this process is to take into account the direction the solar panels will face, any shading issues that may be present, the electric pricing rate you will be changed to, as well as correctly price your system for you. Once this has been achieved, we will then show you not only the cost of the complete solar system installion but also how much it will save you. This process also allows us to show you not only how long it will take to pay for itself, but also what your internal rate of return on your money that can be realized.

Plans and Engineering
Once the designing process is complete, we will then go to work drawing the plans for the building dept using advanced CAD software for a complete and profession set of drawings. This process is completed in house. We then have our engineer go to work to engineer the plans and properly stamp them with his approval.
Once engineering is complete, we submit plans to the appropriate building department for approval
The Building Process
All during the above listed process we are in communication with you advising you of the process of your solar project investment. Typically, we can get drawings, engineering, as well as building permits in a two to three week time from. When building permits are approved, our construction department will notify you of this and schedule your installation. Installation for our highly trained and skilled installers is from two to three days! We will not leave a job until it is completed. We also leave a check off list that is left for the building inspector to see. This list is usually more detailed and inclusive than a normal building inspection.
Once we start the building process, your application to your local utility company is being processed to help expidite the installation of your new meter as well as the interconnection approval. This interconnection allows you to start receiving you energy credits as well as the solar electric pricing rates.
Upon completion of this entire process, our trained field representative will meet with you to present you with all of the warranties, start up and maintenance procedures, appropriate company contact individual depending on you needs, as well as copies of all contracts and agreements. This binder will provide you with instant access to any standard operating information you will need and help you to easily locate anything relating to your new power plant.
