Solar Power Design and Install

RES provides a single point of contact for the design, integration, permitting, installation and warranty service of renewable energy systems. We have on-staff electrical and mechanical engineers and this sets us apart from any other solar, wind, generator, battery energy dealer in Alaska.  Project management by the RES team provides tight project oversight and ensures objectives and deadlines are achieved to schedule. We help you avoid complex and crippling system compatibility issues by carefully selecting the correct components and providing a complete system.


We have over 60 years of combined Design and installation experience RES is the industry standard for High quality products and packages. Our experts can answer just about any question that you have, and since RES had been doing this in Alaska we know what works and what does not. Let us help you lower your cost of living forever. RES is the ONLY renewable energy company in Alaska that actually has installed solar and wind on our stores. We know it works, we live the life, and we care about the environment. Res is the only Renewable Energy Company in the state that has both NABCEP certified designers and NABCEP Certified Installers. Find out more about NABCEP here:

RES keeps Electrical and Structural engineers on staff and we are proud to be the only certified repair center for Trace, Xantrex, Schneider electric, and Magnum energy.

Design Methodology

The RES design and installation process can be divided into these steps:

  • Initial discussion and understanding your system's requirements

  • Evaluation of your site and its renewable energy potential

  • System design and quotation completed

  • Project initiation

  • System installation and startup

  • System walk-through and briefing

  • Ongoing service and support as required

Design Process

The process of system design begins with understanding the requirements for your renewable system. This is key to determining the best system for you both for performance and cost. This requires us to understand several things:

  • Your electrical usage requirements

  • For on grid systems, we like to take a year’s history of your usage, which can be obtained by reviewing your past bills

  • For off grid systems, it is necessary to complete a load calculation worksheet to provide the usage demand requirements

  • The available renewable resources at your site

  • What are the limitations or opportunities at your site

  • How much wind is available, what are the terrain limitations, what are the sun exposures


The answers to these questions and the analysis of your site, will impact the proper design solution. A site survey may be necessary for the final determination of the proper system.


The available budget for renewable energy and your goals for the system.  Budget limitations may require designs with expandability or backup capabilities from non-renewable energy sources.


A quote will be prepared for your system including all required materials and installation costs. Quotations will include a financial analysis detailing average annual energy savings, payback period, estimated rebates/credits, net costs, and return on investment.


After you order your system, RES will order the required materials and components, coordinate their arrival at your site, assemble the system components, and install the system as quickly as possible.


We will take care of the building permits and coordinate with the local building inspectors to make sure everything is properly installed and meets code requirements. After we are satisfied that your system is operating to specification, we will demonstrate how the system works and answer any questions about its operation.




Alaska’s cost of power is twice the national average in major city’s and can be more than 8 times more expensive in the

remote Villages of Alaska. Every year the cost of power goes up, in the next 10 years you will pay someone for your

power, why not pay yourself? The average payback is less than 8 years, and over the lifetime of your solar system it will

pay for itself more than 5 times over. No moving parts, no maintenance, no batteries, no reason not to go solar today.
