Solar Plan Sets
Solar Plan Sets For Any Project
Solar plan sets are a crucial part of the solar permitting process – they enable you to visualize how the system will look, provide a detailed plan for your installation contractor, and are necessary to get building and electrical permits approved for your project. At Avila Solar, we offer a variety of different affordable and detailed solar plan set packages to meet your solar project needs.
Residential Solar Plan Sets
For residential solar projects, we have three different plan set package options:
PV Only Plan Sets
Our PV plan sets include a cover sheet, a site plan, a roof framing plan, an electrical plan, and a single line diagram of the system. If your Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) requires a structural and/or electrical Professional Engineering (PE) certification, we offer this as an add-on service that can be purchased separately from our base plan set package.
Please note that the permit and certification fees are not included in the price of your plan set. Load calculations for panel de-rating are not provided as part of a basic plan set, although they can be purchased separately as an add-on service.
PV + Battery Plan Sets
As with the PV Only package, this plan set will include a cover sheet, a site plan, a roof framing plan, an electrical plan, and a single line diagram. Permit and certifications fees are not included in the price. Professional Engineering certifications, load calculations for backup panels, and service panel de-rating are not included in the package, but they can be purchased as add-on services.
Ground Mount Plan Sets
Commercial Solar Plans Sets
At Avila Solar, we also offer a plan set package for commercial solar energy systems up to 500 KW in size. These plan sets can be customized for rooftop or ground-mounted panels as well as for solar carports. Our commercial packages include design and drafting services only and include a site plan, an electrical layout and diagram, a cable schedule, placards, racking details, and datasheets.
This package does not include Professional Engineering certifications (again, they are available as an add-on service), battery storage plans, medium voltage data, or SCADA, and they are limited to one interconnection point per solar project. If your project is larger than 500 KW or exceeds the scope of work outlined above, please contact us directly for a plan set pricing estimate.
We offer very competitive pricing on our solar plan set packages. Our goal at Avila Solar is to make solar energy affordable and accessible to all, so we do everything we can to keep your costs down.
