Builder/Contractor Program

Compass Solar Energy is offering area builders the opportunity to include solar for newly constructed commercial buildings. We have extensive experience in designing solar thermal and solar electric applications into new construction, as well as retro-fitting existing buildings. If solar applications are included in the design process, they are more efficient and usually make for better economies of scale. As one of the only solar companies with an in-house engineer, Compass Solar can work directly with your team to create a custom solution for your project as installation is cheaper at build-out.
