Solar PV and Solar Thermal Consulting

CES helps businesses and universities evaluate the costs and benefits of onsite solar photovoltaic (PV) and solar thermal generation. When solar provides a good match for a client’s specific goals, we provide the following services:

  • Preparation of detailed financial pro-formas
  • Writing of grant applications
  • Sale Or Purchase of Solar RECs
  • Negotiation of Power Purchase Agreements

As with most renewable energy sectors, CES has first-hand knowledge of the solar sector that is unique among consultants. CES principals, Mark Isaacson and Rich Silkman, formed GridSolar in 2009 to provide an alternative to expensive transmission line projects.  The GridSolar concept has three main components:

  • Development of a Smart Grid Platform that will allow higher levels of efficiency in the generation, transmission and use of electricity
  • Creation of an Independent Smart Grid Operator that, unlike traditional utilities, will be rewarded for increases in energy efficiency and conservation
  • Construction of distributed Renewable Solar Generation in lieu of massive new power lines that will provide the energy locally to meet increases in peak loads and ensure grid reliability
