Solar App FAQs

A commercial solar site survey is a systematic evaluation conducted at a potential business location to assess the feasibility of installing a solar energy system. This process involves a multidimensional analysis of the site, including considerations such as the amount of sunlight the location receives, potential shading from nearby structures or vegetation, and the structural integrity of existing roofs or other potential mounting surfaces. Additionally, the survey examines the electrical infrastructure to determine its compatibility with a solar power system, ensuring that the integration will be seamless and efficient.

Conducting commercial solar site surveys involves a systematic, multistep process. It’s essential that, at every step of the process, the surveyor captures as many pictures and videos as possible. This ensures that design and engineering teams who are not on-site during the survey get as much context as possible. So, without further ado, here are the key stages: 

  1. Collect essential client information
  2. Evaluate the condition of the available roof or ground space designated for installation
  3. Take precise measurements to inform the design phase
  4. Conduct a shading analysis to understand potential obstructions
  5. Examine the attic and structural components if the installation is on the roof. 
  6. Inspect service panel(s) and electrical systems. 
  7. Document and store all gathered information along with site photos.

Utilizing a commercial solar site survey checklist is crucial for standardization, quality control, and facilitating the workflow for surveyors. The checklist ensures a consistent approach across surveys, promoting uniformity and enhancing the accuracy and completeness of survey data, contributing to higher-quality assessments. 

Moreover, it streamlines the survey process, making it more efficient for surveyors to follow a structured framework and reducing the likelihood of oversights or errors. In essence, a well-designed checklist is an indispensable tool that not only maintains standards and quality but also eliminates ambiguity for field technicians.
