Story

The Papagni family was interested in solar and timed their installation with a 1031 exchange (an IRS code that allows an investor to sell a property, reinvest the proceeds in a new property, and defer all capital gain taxes). They had a very short time frame to work with, and after speaking with several solar contractors, the family chose AgWell Solar, due to their ability to rapidly deploy the Osprey PowerPlatform. The AgWell Solar team broke ground the day after Thanksgiving, and had 383kW installed (104 Osprey units), commissioned, inspected, with Permission to Operate (PTO) from the utility by Dec 31, 2014.

Nuance Energy Advantage: Rapid deployment: from contract signing to system operation was 33 days. No other firm could meet the timeline needed by customer.
