    At SolarPlanSets, we provide top-notch residential solar plan sets to empower businesses such as solar installers, electricians, general contractors, and other companies looking to outsource their solar plan set drawings. Our plan sets are meticulously designed to ensure seamless installation and operation. Let’s delve into the details of what our plan sets offer.

    Direct Collaboration with the Solar Designers

    Our plan sets service ensures you work directly with the design and drafting team. This approach promotes an open line of communication through email support, although this service does not include phone support. This feature ensures you’re constantly in the loop during the drafting phase of your solar project.

    In-Depth Drafting for Utility Interconnection

    The service includes detailed drafting of plans for your solar energy project. These can be submitted to your city for permit and utility interconnection approval. Each project comes with a dedicated drafter who can make unlimited changes for up to 6 months. Beyond the initial 6 months, there’s a nominal fee of $70 for every 3 months of changes.

    Comprehensive Drawings List

    Every SolarPlanSet includes a comprehensive list of drawings that cover various aspects of your solar project, including:

    • G-1 Cover Sheet: This is the first page of your plan set and provides an overview of the project. It often includes the site address, owner’s name, project description, and key specifications.
    • PV-1 Site Plan: The Site Plan offers a bird’s eye view of the project location. It typically shows the layout of the entire property, including the location of the solar panels, existing structures, property lines, and access points.
    • PV-2 Electrical Plan: This detailed schematic illustrates the electrical connections within the solar system. It shows how panels, inverters, meters, and other electrical components are interconnected, including the sizing and specification of wires.
    • PV-3 Solar Attachment Plan: This part of the plan set focuses on how the solar panels will be physically attached to the structure, like a roof or a ground mount. It includes specifications for mounting equipment and instructions for secure installation.
    • PV-4 Line Diagram: The Line Diagram is a simplified version of the Electrical Plan. It offers an easy-to-understand visual representation of the system’s electrical connections, useful for both installers and inspectors.
    • PV-5 Design Tables: These tables contain detailed specifications of the components used in the project. This includes the type and number of solar panels, inverters, batteries, etc., along with their individual and total capacities.
    • PV-6 Placards: Placards in a solar plan set refer to the signage or labels that need to be displayed on the solar installation. These can include safety warnings, operational instructions, or emergency shutdown procedures.
    • PV-7-X Resource Sheets: These are additional reference sheets that provide more in-depth information about specific aspects of the project. They could include manufacturer datasheets for equipment, detailed installation instructions for certain components, or further technical information needed for the project.

    Who Can Benefit From Our Plan Sets?

    Our solar plan sets are perfect for experienced solar installers, electricians who handle solar projects regularly, or companies with dedicated in-house professionals to review the plan sets.

    However, they might not be suitable for beginners in solar installation, projects exceeding 10kWdc, or those requiring personalized phone support or a project manager. Also, DIY enthusiasts and homeowners may want to consider alternative solutions.

    What Our Plan Sets Do NOT Include

    Our plan sets do not include load calcs, structural or electrical engineering, or phone support. Also, there’s no expedited service available. For these services and more options for custom projects, our designers can help you meet your needs.
