Christine reach us through Yelp, she and her husband had been considering going solar for a while, as we were reached the hot summer months, she was ready to proceed and complete the installation to avoid the high electricity costs of July and August. Christine and her husband are the owners of the commercial property located in Miracle Mile. They purchased the property in the 90’s and have done minor remodeling since. The property is mostly occupied by office spaces they rent out to various tenants. The building has a flat roof that receives sunlight almost all day long due to the angle and lack of shade.
Since this is a flat roof, we placed the panels in such a way that allows people to easily access and walk around the roof, there is sufficient space between panel rows and made sure to maximise the surface in order to generate sufficient electricity to cover all the main costs. We recommend both LG and Silfab panels and Christine preferred the more cost-effective option which is the Silfab panels. A total of 24 panels were installed on the roof. The process went smoothly and rapidly. On the first days our crew installed all the mounting and racking for the panels, they also prepared all the wiring to make sure they are properly ordered. The next day they proceeded by connecting all the wiring. The last day the panels were installed. Labor took approx. 3 days. The city inspection was scheduled shortly after and was immediately approved. The PTO took about 3 weeks.
Christine and her husband were very satisfied with the short amount of time it took to complete this project. They were thrilled to finally stop paying the high summer costs of electricity and were now earning more for their property due the reduced cost. The couple was so surprised regarding the simplicity of the full process of solar system installation that were ready to install solar panels in their home in Van Nuys. We were eager to begin working.
