Modular Energy Systems Consulting

Engineering Consulting

Engineering & Design: System design for solar and battery projects.

Design Review: Once final plans are drawn we can review for proper due diligence and risk mitigation.

RFP Management: Assistance with vendor selection for bill of materials.

Project Management: We can provide oversight In person or remote via phone/skype.

Cost Analysis: Project audit and cost analysis. Verify bill of materials, design, and engineering

System Commissioning: Generally when new equipment is installed the components need to be configured, firmware needs to be updated, and the system needs calibration.

Operations & Maintenance: If issues arise after the installation we can provide ongoing troubleshooting and ask the right questions for proper maintenance.
