Solar Photovoltaic

Photovoltaic technologies have distinguished themselves as the preeminent solution to the World’s increasing energy demands. PhotonWorks Engineering has over 14 years of experience working with solar photovoltaic systems. We are honored to pass that experience onto our community.

Site Assessment

pwe_carThe work begins with an analysis of your home or business. We have developed sophisticated methods for determining the potential of your site. By analyzing sun readings, shading analysis, air quality, and local site conditions our technicians are able to accurately predict the level of solar penetration available to you.

Engineering

Once we have analyzed your site our engineers begin to design your system. Our mission in design is to reduce your bill to zero. The systems we design are carefully calibrated to produce as much energy as you need, no more, no less. This phase ends with a professional set of plans and permits ready to be translated into a real system.

Construction

With these plans our construction crews will be ready to improve your site. Construction on your home or business should be as quick and as painless as possible. Our electricians and laborers will greet you with a smile and leave you with a new solar power system. We understand the value of working quickly but we do not sacrifice safety or quality to do so.

Commissioning and closeout

modulatingWith any large home improvement project there are regulations, permits, and bureaucrats to contend with. We have jumped through these hoops many times and are happy to do so for our fellow Hawaiians. The project ends when we commission your system by making sure that it is safe and functional. Once we have closed out your project your new photovoltaic system will start generating clean renewable energy. Your environmental conscience will be clear, and your wallet will be heavier.

O&M

The closing of your project is the beginning of your comprehensive operation and maintenance policy. If you experience any problems with your system, we will dispatch an electrician to your site at no charge to you for up to two years after installation. There are also options for longer O&M policies as well as annual panel cleaning. Solar panel systems are notoriously reliable with many manufacturers offering 20 – 25 year warranties.
