LOCATION – Mount Dora, Florida
PROJECT NAME – Net Zero Building
ROOF TYPE –  R-Panel
PRODUCT USED – Single-Piece PowerMount with Solar Connection Kit
INSTALLER – Optimus Solar

The Solar Connections Kit was used by Optimus Solar as they built their brand new Net-Zero Headquarters in Mount Dora, Florida. Beyond the PR benefits of doing business in a green building, the 16.8kW system that was installed will give the owner about a 14% per year return for the 30-year life of the system and will have an ROI of five years. Benjamin Pauluhn of Optimus explains how “Solar Energy is environmentally friendly and retains funds in the local economy by utilizing local labor including electrical, installation, and engineering.”

One of our Account Executives here at Solar Connections, Chad Reilly, recently helped on a project for the Pitts Residence in Ann Arbor Michigan and received this message shortly after the project was complete:

"There are two things I would like to point out in particular [about his experience];

First is your follow-up.  We have used (other companies’) clamps for years, picking them up through distributors.  Too often in this industry the service from manufacturers is, at best bad and frequently horrible.  We have very few relationships where we feel our business is appreciated, with you there is no question.

Second is regarding the product; we love the simplicity.  The built-in wire management makes rail-less applications a breeze.

Thank you for your help on this one!  There will be a next."
