For buyers and sellers of solar and wind power projects, as your solar broker we can match developers and land owners with potential buyers of entitled solar or wind power projects. This is the traditional "flip" model where an entitled or almost entitled asset is sold to another entity for construction and operation. There is a growing market for these kinds of projects and CRS specializes in the small commercial-scale market that is often overlooked by larger financiers and brokers. CRS focuses on projects under 20 megawatts.
For commercial or governmental entities, as your solar broker we complete an initial physical and economic
analysis and help you determine the right size and technology for your
site. We then issue a request for proposals to local solar installers, on your behalf, and help you
to select the winning bidder to design and install your solar project. The winning bidder pays our fee in most
We can also obtain permits and financing for your projects. We act as a "one stop shop" for your commercial solar needs.
Our solar broker model offers a low risk and hassle-free way to
obtain actual quotes
from solar companies and to select the best company at the best price
for your needs.This option is ideal for companies interested in solar
but perhaps without the staff time to delve deeply into what can be
complex issues. Our job is to help you determine your best options and
get you the best deal.
For residential solar customers, we offer a fixed-fee solar bid comparison service, as well as consulting services as required. The key value of our service is objectivity: we're not beholden to any particular installation company or type of panel. Under our solar bid comparison service we compare the bids you've already received and provide a recommendation, with reasoning, for the best bid to accept. We can do this remotely and generally all we need is a pdf of the bids you've received from solar companies. Just email us at the "Contact Us" page, or call, and we'll let you know what we'll need.
