We specialize in modeling and proposing the economics of solar and energy storage projects. We've been fortunate to have strong and consistent growth since the start and have roughly doubled our revenues every year since inception while growing our headcount from one to 25 employees.

  • avoided cost
  • solar economics
A good starting point for identifying an advantageous solar market is to look at the average retail cost of electricity. For behind-the-meter (BTM) solar projects, high retail electricity prices enable solar project economics to look more attractive. The opposite is also true.
