Welcome to Advanced Green Technologies


 Engineering plays a critical role in the life cycle of commercial solar system design projects. From conception to implementation and maintenance, engineering ensures that solar systems are designed, installed, and operated efficiently and reliably.

In context, solar project engineering focuses on designing and developing customized solar systems capable of meeting each project’s specific energy needs. For this reason, engineers must implement their expertise in various areas, such as electrical engineering, sustainable energy engineering, and structural engineering, to create optimal solar solutions for clients.

The steps involved in this engineering process are explained in detail below:

Customized System Design

Every business has unique energy needs, so it is necessary to create customized commercial solar system designs based on a thorough assessment of your energy needs and business requirements. This ensures that we meet the specific demands of each of our commercial customers.

Design Phase

During the design phase, the solar engineers use advanced modeling and simulation tools to create solar systems that maximize energy efficiency and performance. Key factors such as geographic location, space availability, and available solar resources are considered.


They also thoroughly analyze all local regulations and codes to ensure the design meets all regulatory and safety requirements. We even verify that the system is appropriately sized to meet the energy demand and adequately optimized to maximize the return on investment.


The system design is then tailored to your building or site’s physical and structural characteristics to select the appropriate solar panels, inverters, and mounting systems for the specific environment. If required, system integration needs with existing systems and energy storage options are also considered.


Future scalability is also considered because companies’ energy needs may change. Therefore, it is essential to design systems that can be easily expanded or adapted in the future to meet eventual needs.

Site Assessment

The Florida solar site assessment is a crucial step in designing commercial solar systems, as several factors are analyzed to determine the feasibility and efficiency of the solar system at a specific location. Some critical factors considered for solar panel layout optimization are:

Sun Exposure

Detailed analysis of the solar radiation available at the site is indispensable; for this purpose, data collection with safety and stability must be done. In addition, regulatory requirements and local building codes are considered to ensure compliance with relevant regulations.

Shadow Analysis

The team of specialists conducts a comprehensive shadow analysis of the site to identify obstacles that could cast shadows on the solar system, such as trees, nearby buildings, or adjacent structures. This is done using specialized modeling tools and software that simulate the path of the sun and the casting of shadows throughout the day and during the different seasons of the year.

Structural Considerations

Experts assess the structural suitability of the site to support the installation of a solar system by analyzing the integrity of the roofs, the strength of the supporting structures, and other safety and stability issues. Regulatory requirements and local building codes are also considered to ensure regulation compliance.

In addition to these main factors, other aspects such as space availability, accessibility for installation, and electromagnetic interference potential are also evaluated. These elements are essential in determining the technical and economic feasibility of implementing a commercial solar system at a specific site.

The evaluation of solar sites in Florida is performed in close collaboration with the owners or managers of the site, and advanced tools and technologies are implemented to collect accurate data and perform the necessary analysis. This assessment provides crucial information for the subsequent solar system design, allowing the site’s solar power generation potential to be fully utilized.

Solar Panel Selection

The selection of high-quality solar panels is critical to maximizing energy production in a commercial solar system. Below, we report on how solar panels and related components are selected to ensure optimal performance:

Efficiency & Performance: For energy conversion work, priority is given to selecting high-efficiency solar panels because they can generate more electricity from the same amount of solar radiation. In addition, factors such as performance in conditions of low radiation and high temperatures are evaluated because they can affect energy production, and solar panels with low degradation and high tolerance for adverse environmental conditions are sought.

Panel Type & Technology: There are different solar panel technologies, such as monocrystalline, polycrystalline, or thin-film silicon, and each has specific characteristics and advantages. The specific requirements, available space, and environmental conditions are considered to choose the right one for each project. In addition, the efficiency, durability, stability, and cost of the different types of solar panels are considered.

Warranties & Certifications: In solar panel installation work, we seek to choose only reliable manufacturers that offer solid guarantees of performance and durability because they can stand behind the quality and arrangement of the product over the long term. Relevant certifications, such as quality certifications and certifications of compliance with industry standards, are also considered because they provide additional validation of the quality and performance of the solar panels

Compatibility with other components: Solar panels must be compatible with other system components, such as inverters, charge controllers, and mounting systems. Therefore, the integration capability and interoperability of the solar panels with the rest of the system must be considered when selecting solar panels to ensure efficient and reliable system operation.

Cost-Benefit Ratio:  In addition to factors such as quality and performance, the economic factor must be considered since a balanced cost-benefit ratio is sought when choosing a solar panel. It is important to note that the choice of solar panels and related components is a process of renewable energy system customization tailored to the specific needs and characteristics of each commercial solar energy project. During this process, solar engineers use their experience and technical expertise to evaluate all of these considerations to choose solar panels that maximize energy production and meet the client’s objectives.
