SepiSolar specializes in renewable energy technologies for commercial, industrial, utility, municipal, medical, and educational applications. We do this primarily through contractors that specialize in these sectors, but we also occasionally engage directly with these site owners when it makes sense to do so.
We work with Solar PV, Energy Storage, EVs, Hydrogen, and Fuel-Based Generators. However, our real advantage comes from our ability to combine these technologies into a single project or site creating a complex microgrid meeting several client requirements at once.
We offer Project Services, Product Services, and Consulting Services.
We see projects as ‘site-specific business plans’. Each location has its own set of objectives, constraints, and qualifiers. We work with you to 1) establish the feasibility of that business plan, 2) plan and design its eventual implementation, and 3) assist in executing the plan to completion all the way through Asset Management.
We assist in developing and engineering new products entering the renewable energy market. SepiSolar is uniquely positioned to assist in these efforts since we see client needs daily, and have a firm understanding of the policy that the product will need to comply with.
Consulting Services are essentially any additional support from our team of experts. This might include assisting attorneys as an Expert Witness, holding multi-day trainings for contractors on recent policy, or providing a second opinion to another engineer’s work.
Absolutely! We have several samples available for download here.
We are primarily electrical engineers. However, we also coordinate with structural, architectural, and geotech engineers through a project. Many of our clients find it easier if we take the lead and coordinate with these other disciplines on their behalf.
Our projects have a wide range of sizes and complexities. From a 5kw residential solar PV system, to a 50MW utility-scale PV, Storage, and Hydrogen microgrid, we can handle just about anything.
Like with our projects, we work with a wide range of clients. We treat each of our clients with the same level of professionalism and care regardless of whether it’s ‘a man and his truck’, or a Fortune 100 company with a multi-million dollar portfolio.

We can engineer and stamp designs in all of the 50 states. We occasionally even participate in projects outside of the United States.
Big, Really big. Like Jupiter big.
We find that we can handle a lot more work when we’re good at keeping a schedule. You’ll find our commitment to that schedule on your quotes. We will only give you dates that we can stand by and commit to. If you’re concerned about a large upcoming portfolio of work, please reach out to your account manager immediately to reserve time on the calendar.
Our main office is at 3070 Osgood Ct, Fremont, CA 94539.
Our normal hours of operation are 8am to 5pm, however our engineers often work outside of these hours to meet our client’s needs. Your project manager may give different times when you can reach out to them.
That entirely depends on the project scope and our current available capacity to perform the work. However, we include task dates on each of our quotes so that you know what to expect every time. We treat these quoted dates like a reservation – they are valid up until the quote expiration date.
We have multiple ways to handle change orders.
First, we structure our milestones to allow for comments and corrections with each step so that changes can be incorporated without the use of change orders. This approach has all but eliminated change orders for us.
Depending on your preference, we can build in a change order allowance into the quote, and draw from it if necessary and with permission. This is most common among large corporations that have a painful administrative process for change orders. If the allowance isn’t completely used, we can either reduce the final invoice or credit the next project.
Absolutely! Our team of professionals understand that everyone comes with different experience and expertise. We’re able to train your team, coach you through development, or even manage your project from start to finish. Your account manager and solutions engineer will ask questions to find out where you are, where you’re trying to go, and what gaps we can fill.
