“Our consultant Adam even showed up and wire brushed and painted our main electrical panel that was looking pretty dingy. This was totally unexpected and much appreciated”

All German Auto Solar System

Example Project

Project Summary:
All German Auto was founded in 1991 and has an excellent reputation for taking care of their customers. After they conducted extensive research on solar providers, we are thankful and honored they choose Palomar Solar to help them go solar! It took a total of five months from the time the contract was signed to get their system up and producing. Our actual time on site was less than two weeks with all panels installed in a week.

The Challenge:

Our initial design was to have all the panels facing south. However, during our permit review the Fire department had asked for more room around the sky lights. This resulted in a significant amount of lost panels and production. In order to get the production All German Auto needed, we went to an East / West racking system that allowed us to meet our goals. The other challenge was the old existing main electrical panel. In order to be able to back feed all the solar power we ended up installing a new main electrical panel, which had to be custom made to fit in the available space. The job was completed just before the end of 2015 ensuring they received their tax credit.

Palomar Solar History

Screen Shot 2016-05-18 at 9.43.51 AM

Our first system for Palomar Solar was installed on founder Dwight Anderson’s home in 2009. Dwight wanted the best system he could find and after extensive research realized that he knew more than the majority of companies he reached out to.  That’s when he decided to not only do his own installation but to start Palomar Solar in an effort to better educate the public about solar. To this day all of the systems we have installed are based on our continued commitment to excellence and staying ahead of advancements in a rapidly changing industry.

At Palomar Solar, we handle all of the paperwork and documentation for you, including processing City/County Permits, Utility Interconnections and State Rebates when available. Your project is professionally handled from start to finish and we pay close attention to all details of the build, as aesthetics are just as important to us as your energy savings.

When your project is complete, and you are 100% satisfied, our job does not end. We are still monitoring your system on a daily basis. When you choose enPhase micro-inverters and Palomar Solar, you always receive the benefit of on-line per panel monitoring.  We are available to answer any of your questions regarding your production and or utility billing.  At Palomar Solar our job doesn’t end when the project passes inspection, this is a long term relationship and we look forward to welcoming you to the Palomar family.
