What Should I Consider for My Solar Project in Grafton? 

Permitting

All municipalities in Wisconsin have specific rules and regulations for solar projects. Each project is subject to both city and AHJ regulatory measures. It can get complicated, but that’s why you work with Arch. Arch Solar takes care of all permitting and building requirements, as outlined by Grafton’s guidelines. The best part – your permitting is already factored into your solar proposal cost!

Shading

Does your home have many trees surrounding it? Grafton has a stunning natural landscape, and trees are often part of the landscape. As a renewable energy company, we love the environmental benefits trees provide. However, too much tree coverage will shade your roof. Roof shading can cause significant solar production loss.

Our team’s cutting-edge LIDAR technology helps plan around your natural features and can show options for any landscape re-work or clever design outlays to avoid solar shading.
