Have a look through our installs. Each is unique. Each home is individual and each system is tailored to meet the needs of the home owners.

We have installed over 80 systems in the coastal area of Yucatan and every system is designed to withstand the harsh climate we face living on or near the beach.

Each gallery represents a system we have installed. Just scroll down the page and click on an image slider to view the install and explanations of the work carried out.

This system we needed to fit 12 panels in a very small roof space. You can see the large concrete columns we built to accommodate the panels.

This is the final set of columns to support the last row of panels. This row of columns was built 1.35 meters high.

In almost every case we install a new ground rod for connection to the solar system. We insist on this being a 3 meter rod.

14 - 250 watt panels matched to a Kaco 5  wall mount inverter

One of our first systems delivering about 1.25 kilowatts per panel per day.

A 14 - 320 watt panel system matched with a Kaco 5 wall mount inverter 

Tigo optimizers were added to this system to maximize power output. This system consitently produces about 4 kw per hour.

This roof presented some serious issues to creating the best system design possible. First of these was the 1 meter high parapet wall that surrounded the roof. There was also the desire of the owners to keep enough space open to allow them to have a viewing platform to watch the ocean and the stars.

We decided to elevate the entire system. This way we avoided the shading from the walls and still allowed for adjustable framing to maximize power output.

Finished system
Finished system

We were able to achieve all the goals we set and the home owner set for this installation. It is an elevated system - 0 shading issues. It is able to maximize production - easily out performing all standard wall mount inverters. We were also able to leave a large open space the home owner uses as the viewing platform.
