Our Services

We offer a range of services to meet your project needs.

We support project developers with early-stage design, production modeling, interconnection, and site optimization. We work with local civil engineers to facilitate site layout and entitlement permitting, and will support our clients through MIPA negotiations or EPC selection. We have expertise in energy production modeling and designing optimal layouts for difficult sites - those that include wetlands, forests, topography, or multiple buildings with numerous arrays.

We provide full engineering plan sets for permit and construction to EPC contractors for commercial solar, energy storage, and microgrid projects. We work to ensure that all of the necessary information is gathered from the site and evaluate options for the most cost-effective installation. Our plan sets are detailed enough to clarify installation requirements, and we support our clients through equipment selection, construction administration and close-out.

If you own solar and storage (or plan to), we can help. We ensure projects are delivered with the best return on your investment. We have the expertise you need to evaluate and reduce risk and ensure success. We provide bespoke consulting services to all types of projects and asset owners. 

SR-services-construction-management_edited.jpg

We support facility managers and owners to evaluate the potential for solar and energy storage to reduce energy bills and increase resiliency. We develop preliminary designs, model energy production, analyze utility billing and rate schedules and use state-of-the-art software to model project financials and help you to evaluate risks. If the project pencils, we will scope out the work, develop an RFP, help select a contractor or PPA provider, negotiate the contract and manage the project through commercial operation.

Our mission is simple: cleaner, safer, and more resilient energy.

We work toward that mission by improving the value of every project we work on.

We believe that more clean energy will be produced if projects:
 

  • Are deployed faster with lower risk

  • Last longer with lower maintenance costs

  • Produce more energy at the right times

  • Have more profitable stakeholders

  • Cause less environmental damage and disruption

Why Sol Rebel?

We deliver results.

Our goal is to help our clients succeed. Our work is thoughtful, innovative, high quality and delivered on time. No excuses. If we fall short, we take responsibility and fix it. By recognizing our own strengths, weaknesses and capabilities, we are able to set clear expectations with our partners and deliver.

We’ve got Sol.

We care about people. Honesty and integrity are core values that lie at the heart of what we do. We believe in the importance of our work and its impact on the quality of life for all people and future generations. This is for our families, our team, our clients and the world.

We are Rebels.

We think differently. We question preconceived ideas. We solve problems, we don’t just offer our “solutions” and hope they fit. Being a rebel is not about breaking rules and norms. It’s about questioning them and, when necessary, working to change them.
