Solar Design Studio
Ready to go solar? The team at SunPower by Milholland Electric invites you to explore your savings on any device with the free Solar Design Studio. In as little as one minute, enter your address to envision a solar home system and view just how much you can save on your energy costs - straight from your electronic device!
The tool, built using Sunpower Design Technology, combines the power of Sunpower’s years of industry technology with Google’s Cloud and Sunroof data to analyze a home in seconds.
Before the Sunpower Solar Design Studio, it was common for both homeowners and contractors to spend hours looking at a home’s measurements, combined with online solar savings calculator websites - just to evaluate whether a solar investment would truly be cost-effective. Now, thanks to Sunpower, what used to take hours can now be completed in minutes.
Here’s how it works: When you head to the Design Studio and enter your home address, our system will create a digital outline of your roof based on pre-existing overhead imagery. Our renderings will show the best panel placement for maximum savings, while avoiding obstructions such as trees, chimneys, and skylights. You can choose to add or delete panels as needed to suit your design preferences. Play around and try multiple layouts to see which is most effective for your home’s energy needs.
From there, the software calculates energy output based on local elements like weather, shading, and percentage of available sunlight. We then compare your electric bill against thousands of recent bills to calculate your savings.
The Design Studio also allows you to see the products SunPower recommends as part of your home’s solar upgrade. From high-efficiency panels to an electronic modeling system that allows you to monitor your home’s energy use from any connected device, you can see examples of what your SunPower by Milholland Electric installation would look like.
While completing your solar home design, Sunpower by Milholland Electric representatives are available via phone or live chat to walk you through the process and answer any questions you might have. Once you’ve placed an optimal number of panels, all you have to do is fill out your contact information for our representatives to call you for a no-obligation full quote and an installation plan.
You’ll be able to meet with them in a no-contact online appointment for in-depth advice and to develop the specific details for your installation. You’ll be ready to enjoy your energy savings for years!
