The transition to renewable energy is a big one. Our goal is to guide you through it seamlessly. That’s why a dedicated DSD Team will be with you every step of the way.

Step 1: Assess & Design

We start by calculating the expected solar energy yield and performance of your new solution. Then, after evaluating your current energy usage, we can provide an accurate comparative savings projection. We also unearth valuable local incentives; review regulations, site constraints and resources; and more.

By identifying areas of system loss early in the process, we can provide a more accurate system proposal.

Step 2: Finance & Develop

Next, we secure financing for your solar energy project and move straightaway into obtaining permits, securing incentives, assessing equipment needs, etc. Once all this is done, we structure your contract.

Step 3: Install

Successful development starts with a collaborative process that engages organizational leadership, facility leadership, and local community stakeholders. During engagement meetings, we will coordinate site requirements such as:

  • EHS requirements and processes
  • Vital traffic pathways, emergency vehicle entry, employee and public parking locations
  • Interconnection shutdown procedure and coordination
  • Essential landscape elements; address of architectural and aesthetic features
  • Site security requirements
  • Demolition plan accounts for light removal, trees and any other landscape element
  • Site mobilization, safety, registration and coordination elements
  • Construction phasing plan
