“In the 20 or so years I’ve been involved with construction and contractors, I have never worked with anyone like the Arch team. They are the most courteous, respectful, and conscientious hard-working folks I’ve ever known. Their communications over the course of the project were tremendous. They made the process super smooth while our hotel was open, and they always made sure the guests weren’t inconvenienced by noise or disruption. I never had to follow up to see if the roof access was closed, or the parking lot was cleaned up. Arch is the standard-bearer for quality in my mind.” – Matt H., General Manager
Why did you decide to go solar?
“Velo Solar is a GA based developer that obtained a REAP grant for the hotel owner, and it made good fiscal sense to do the project.”
What unique way was Arch Electric able to serve you?
“Arch provided the expertise in the electrical design to comply with the utility on behalf of Velo and was capable of completing the project in the timely fashion determined by Velo.”
What is something from your project that speaks to one of Arch Electric’s services?
“The layout of the inverters, sub panel, CT cabinet, and the related construction is superb.”
This was a construction only project for a 94.5 kW solar system on a 3 story hotel with conventional asphalt shingle pitched roof. There are 7 arrays with a total of 259 Seraphim 365W panels and 6 SolarEdge SE14.4kus inverters. Velo Solar designed and engineered the system, and provide all materials other than BOS and electrical equipment. The project took 6 weeks to complete in the winter, including snow removal of over 40 man-hours. The project came in at budget, with perfect QC, and 100% Safe.
