Our Process Residential


  • System Design Through Installation and Utility Connection

    CPM Solar, LLC representative will need to acquire one year of electric utility bills from the subject property. We can help you with acquiring that information if you need. Once we receive your utility bill we will evaluate the following:

    • 12 months of past utility usage
    • Evaluation of building structure
    • Evaluation of roof orientation including obstacles that penetrate
    • Projected usage opportunities (new electric car/additional family occupants etc.)
    • Current building electrical infrastructure to ensure solar system installation will meet all city/county code requirements

    Based on the above information CPM Solar, LLC consultants will provide a written quotation. The quotation will be comprehensive providing system economics, products and associated warranties for your review and approval.

    Once a contract is approved all required plans and specification including required PG&E connection documents will be prepared and submitted to the appropriate city/county agencies for approval.

    Once the city approval is received, system installation will begin.

    After completion of installation is completed PG&E will complete interconnection and a completed document package will be delivered.

    You are now saving $$$ producing your own ELECTRICAL ENERGY!!! Congratulations!

    Purchasing and Financing

    There are several options available to provide funding for solar system installations. Purchasing a system with your own resources is ideal, but if you need or prefer to finance, CPM Solar, LLC has built close relationships with a number of lenders and lending programs locally to make your dream of installing a system a reality.

    Many of the Bay Area Homeowners have found that purchasing a system is the right choice for them. On average, a residential solar system pays for itself in roughly 5 to 7 years and has a useful life exceeding 25 years. This means you can receive substantial savings for years to come. You can also receive federal tax credits which pay 30% of the installation cost.

    Some options cover 100% of installation cost and still provide monthly savings compared to your current electrical expenditures. Experienced CPM Solar, LLC personnel will provide you with recommendations for purchases or financing strategies that best fit your personal finances.

    CPM Solar, LLC owners are HERO certified.
