Want a sales pitch? Pick someone else’s exhibition booth at a trade show near you.

Need additional engineering and design capabilities for solar, storage and microgrid projects anywhere in the US? Come to the SepiSolar booth at Solar & Energy Storage Northeast to meet some of our team, including CEO Josh Weiner and technical sales executive Tony Smith, and find out how to move project engineering seamlessly from planning to execution to close-out.

Those are just a couple reasons to visit us Feb. 19-20 in the Grand Ballroom at the Boston Waterfront Hotel. Also stop by for:

  • The #1 reason Massachusetts contractors should partner with a California-based engineering and design firm
  • Hard copies of SepiSolar’s most popular downloadable assets, including our net energy metering for storage white paper
  • Recommendations for conference sessions at Solar & Energy Storage Northeast
  • Boston-area travel advice
  • A notebook with faux leather cover and a matching click-action pen

Cross country engineering and design

You don’t have to go 3,000 miles west for project engineering and design. Why should you? For all the reasons why the northeast has become SepiSolar’s second-largest market outside of California.

Contractors in the northeast often use internal resources to gather on-site information in a cost-effective manner. Then we leverage technology to share this information, driving our process to provide high-quality deliverables and results.

Many companies like the flexibility this provides, where you can use your strengths and available internal resources and leverage SepiSolar to fill gaps.

SepiSolar knows the northeast markets, including common issues related to National Grid and the terrain, and the SMART program for storage. We can share samples of previous work in the region.

If it’s an advantage to be on-site instead of working remotely, we will come to you. Last year, SepiSolar traveled to over 20 sites in less than two weeks across six states on the East Coast on behalf of a large, publicly-traded solar developer and provided valuable site survey and feasibility services.

Downloadable assets

We continually publish blog posts, videos, white papers and other resources designed to add value for solar, storage and microgrid project professionals, especially those serving the commercial and industrial energy markets.

The easiest way to get all the latest information we share for free is to subscribe to SepiSolar’s monthly C&I Project newsletter.

Come to Booth 118 at Solar & Energy Storage Northeast to fill in an easy signup form. Or save yourself the trouble and pick up printed copies of our published materials. While you’re there, talk to a member of our team about how the topics we frequently cover—risk management, lithium battery safety, net metering for storage, and more—can add value for your business.

Conference recommendations

While you can always find SepiSolar in the exhibit hall at Solar & Energy Storage Northeast, we have earmarked some of the conference sessions that look to be most informative for contractors. Check these out.

Streamlining Interconnection Procedures in the Northeast (Feb. 19 at 10:30 am) covers the biggest risk and long-lead time item in the entire project. Understanding and appreciating the complexity of this process is valuable. Eversource Energy has a speaker on this panel. SepiSolar has done extensive work in their jurisdiction.

Built to Last: Best Practices for High-Quality Commercial Solar Projects (Feb. 19 at 2:40 pm) talks about what we do every single day. You can learn about maximizing quality and minimizing risk to the host customer based on string vs. central inverters, DC wire management options, monitoring and asset management, designing with higher-voltage strings, and more.

Storage for the New Grid (Feb. 19 at 4 pm) could address novel ways that we have used DC-coupled solar+storage to reduce power impact and increase solar penetration on the grid.

Resilience for All: Solar Plus Storage and Microgrids (Feb. 19 at 4 pm) is where you can learn about getting DC-coupled microgrids on the macrogrid and how microgrids are better than backup. They’re like backup generators that pay for themselves when the grid is on. You can also learn why microgrids are more resilient than any other type of fuel-based generator, and how this helps disadvantaged communities, who often get stuck with dirty, loud, failure-prone diesel generators, if they have any backup power at all.

Boston-area travel advice

At SepiSolar, we’re not afraid of taking a stand on controversial topics. New England clam chowder is better than Manhattan clam chowder. Yeah, we said it. The broth should be white. Not red. Here’s Boston Magazine’s listing of the best bowls of clam chowder in Boston.

And if you’re not from the northeast, remember to put a sweater in your suitcase. It’s cold.

Faux leather notebook

We pride ourselves on customer experience and relationships. If you visit our exhibition booth, we’ll want to know how many years you’ve been in business. We’ll want to know about your experience with solar and storage projects, the size of your company, how you originate projects, your financing options, and the equipment and partners you use.

From these details, we’ll know how to structure an agreement and the level of service to provide. We can also surface ways that SepiSolar may add value or alleviate pain points in the engineering and design process.

If you’re a C&I contractor, we’d like to tell you about our process, our experience with products and technologies, and how we go above and beyond industry-standard engineering services with value-adds, such as on project kickoff calls and through Sepi Portal.

We believe our familiarity with how the industry works and the challenges our customers face combined with our unique capabilities in C&I projects and energy storage differentiate SepiSolar.

And we give away free faux leather notebooks.
