Site Inspections

Site Inspections are critical to ensuring the accuracy of installed renewable energy systems installed under state-wide incentive programs. kW Engineering conducts independent third-party verification to support state-wide renewable incentive programs such as the California Solar Initiative (CSI) and Self-Generation Incentive Program (SGIP). Inspectors verify renewable energy systems post-installation including:

  • Photovoltaic (PV)
  • Fuel cells
  • Wind turbines, and
  • Solar thermal installations.

During the inspection process engineers verify system performance, analyze shading, verify that installed systems are operational, and that they match incentive application description. Our engineers typically perform these tasks as a subcontractor to a local utility company, whose name and reputation we protect through our professional approach, attention to customer contact, and safety.
