Solar works in Michigan! Solid electrical production data is available today, as a result of real time monitoring systems, providing indisputable metrics that leave the skeptics speechless.

Real metrics and solid data demonstrate solar is a practical/affordable application in Michigan.

How do we get this data?
Micro-inverters attached to each panel make every cell in the panel independent of each other, and can be quantified from the day they go live.
Our new string inverters also provide real-time internet based monitoring today as well.

Micro-inverter reporting on Michigan system over 3 yrs.

These metrics provide hard data that solar panels in Michigan, can actually be more efficient than those in sunnier, hotter states, because cooler temperatures improve efficiency during hot months. From year to year, data from across the United States has provided solid evidence that solar is a practical, affordable, and smart investment, with a higher payback than almost any other investment.

Daren and the MES crew were amazing. This is how you want your contractors to be. We made our house the oldest net zero house in America and the first in Michigan. We did not make our choice of solar lightly. We wanted the best and we found it.

I`m a little worried about all the schlocky solar contractors popping up out there and using lousy equipment and poor design. MES has been around for 25 years and are completed committed to solar and have decades of experience and technical knowledge. Love these guys and I`m thrilled to have our system.
