Our team consists of industry experts that understand tax laws, federal and state regulations, utility incentive structures, and the renewable energy credit markets that determine whether a project is viable for finance. Optimizing all available incentives is the key to maximizing the rate of return on a renewable energy project; Universal Solar staff are experts at this.

Design & Engineering
Universal’s experienced design staff combines over fifteen years of experience in the design and installation of electrical systems, including solar photovoltaic, FMC, PLC, motor control, and internal reconstruction. Universal’s engineering team has created, trained, and managed teams for as-built installation projects on major municipal utility projects. We have also developed construction designs for new power distribution facilities, as well as renovation of existing power distribution facilities.

Procurement
Universal handles all product procurement for every project we do resulting in the ability to deal directly with manufacturers and by-pass the distributor unlike most other solar companies. Universal receives volume discounts which help lower the cost of installation, allowing us to pass savings on to the customer.
