Consulting Services

As solar consultants, our goal is to make sure that everyone we work with gets the service and products they need. We are client advocates, working to assure that you have a smooth and successful solar project. We connect you with local vendors who care deeply about the same things you do and we offer advice learned from dozens of solar projects, large and small.

and navigate federal tax credits.  Our solar installation provides most of our energy and
costs less than a second used car.

Legacy Solar Co-op Expert Consultants offer:

Assessment

Find out if solar is right for your community, organization, business or home. Our assessments include a survey of your building’s energy use and a site evaluation to help you decide if a solar array works for you.

Client Advocacy

Whatever the size of your project, we offer experience and guidance:

  • Find reliable, quality vendors
  • Navigate the project development process, including product research and site evaluation
  • Find the best way to pay for your solar project, including possible financial assistance options

Our client list includes businesses and individual homeowners but we specialize in community institutions (including local governments, faith- and service-based organizations) with special project concerns.

Among other things, we help you:

  • Prepare RFPs and analyse the results
  • Apply for grants
  • Assist with education on solar arrays and project presentations to stakeholders

Solar Project Financing

LSC’s unique solar financing model offers loans to nonprofit organizations and others. Through the sale of solar bonds to LSC members, we help make solar projects affordable and lower difficult-to-raise up-front expenses.

Energy Efficiency Monitoring

Even after you’ve added solar to your building or site, there’s often more you can do to save energy. We help you monitor your energy use and find ways to save even more money on your utility bills.
