NewGen Energy has helped agriculture, commercial, non-profit, and residential clients obtain customized solar solutions and access clean, renewable energy. With NewGen Energy, clients will receive 45-day solar installation, extended warranties, equipment monitoring, and annual energy savings.
NewGen Energy handles the entire solar process from concept to completion. Professionals will collaborate directly with clients, open communication lines, and make solar independence a possibility.
The company is based in Northern California where many of the NewGen Energy projects take place. Since its founding in 2017, NewGen Energy has helped clients save over $20 million in energy costs.
The installation and design process is a key element that sets NewGen Energy apart from the rest of the industry. While many installation companies will handle the solar process from start to finish, many will drag this process on for several months before the system is fully operational. NewGen Energy has the entire project done in 45 days. Elements that set NewGen Energy apart include the following:
Solar is an investment, and a pricey one at that. On average, a residential client can expect a system and installation to cost anywhere from $15,000–$25,000. While some solar customers can pay the hefty upfront charges to own the system outright, not everyone can.
In these circumstances, solar installation companies typically offer one or two financing alternatives. NewGen Energy understands that each financial situation is different. The company offers five different financing options to help clients access renewable energy.
In a cash purchase situation, the system is completely owned by the client. Savings are maximized in this scenario and include the following:
Power Purchase Agreement
In a power purchase agreement, the system is owned by someone else. Details include:
The lease option allows for the client to own the system. Financing specifics include:
This form of financing offers special incentives for agriculture clients. It includes:
This form of financing is available to public agencies, water districts, schools and other public entities. It includes:
The partnerships solar installation companies make with solar manufacturers is critical for overall energy success. Some systems and brands are better in certain circumstances than others, so having access to multiple manufacturer’s equipment provides an edge for a solar installation company. NewGen Energy is one of these companies. With several equipment partners, clients are guaranteed to have a system perfectly tailored to their property. Equipment partners include:
In addition to installing complete solar systems, NewGen Energy also provides energy storage solutions to its customers. Having an energy storage system installed in a home or office building can further extend electricity savings. PV systems will produce electricity that offsets all or at least most energy charges.
That being said, demand charges are not always completely offset by PV systems. With an energy storage system installed in addition to a PV system, clients can increase utility bill savings by decreasing demand charges and protecting against impacts of changes in utility rates and tariffs. Not every solar installation company installs energy storage systems (ESS), but NewGen Energy installs compatible ESS with PV solar systems.
The North American BOard of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) is the certification leader within the renewable energy space. In order to be NABCEP certified, installers need to possess the knowledge and skills necessary to consistently meet the demands of renewable energy projects. Professionals can be NABCEP certified in the following areas:
While it is not required to be NABCEP certified to install solar systems, it is highly recommended and a vast majority of solar installation companies employ at least one NABCEP-certified professional. However, NewGen Energy does not have a NABCEP-certified member on staff.
Many companies in the solar industry tend to be loca, meaning companies restrict service to a relatively small geographical area. Typically, solar installation companies will service the state it is headquartered in or highly populated cities within a state. While there are some solar installation companies that service multiple states or a region of the country, most focus on one specific area. NewGen Energy restricts its services to the following areas:
NewGen Energy will service up and down the state of California on a referral basis, so any California resident or business could utilize the company’s offerings.
