Frequently answered questions
Where do I get those beautiful solar panels? We've optimized our structures to use LSX modules from Lumos Solar of Colorado, USA. They look great from every angle, including the back. They are highly efficient, easy to install, and are extremely strong. Spotlight Solar makes the great looking structures; Lumos provides the beautiful solar panels.
What is the lead time for installation? Please allow six weeks from order to installation date of structures. As well, plan for permitting and four weeks curing time for in-ground concrete foundations.
Do your solar trees qualify for tax credits? Our structures are solar racking equipment (somewhat better looking than average). Thus, installations have qualified for tax credits which apply to solar systems. But we're not your CPA, so please ask them to verify.
How much power do they make, and what do you do with the energy? Solar tree capacities range from 1.5 to 4.5 kW. You can do a lot with that energy, but it is not large enough to be a primary source for a commercial property. Normally, our structures are interconnected at the closest electrical panel, and the energy offsets needs of a building. Often, they've been set up to power electric vehicle charging stations. Sometimes, they are stand-alone systems, with a battery to power specific electrical needs.
Do you design custom products? Our products are meant to be flexible enough for most needs and repeatable enough to keep cost down. That said, we're not clairvoyant, so maybe we've missed a big opportunity. If so, give us a call.
