About the Company: Scalo Solar Solutions

Scalo Solar is the leading Solar Developer & EPC Contractor focused on the development of solar power on commercial, residential, institutional, and industrial projects in the region.  We are committed to expanding the use of solar and clean energy through an innovative approach to project design and financial engineering with an ‘ROI-centric’ focus.  We assist clients, building owners, architects and engineers to turn underutilized rooftops and ground mount sites into sustainable and profitable real estate.  

Our services include project feasibility studies, computerized shade analysis, assistance with system design and layout, electrical designs, utility company interconnection and coordination, CAD design services, remote monitoring services, financial analysis, grant applications, and tax strategies. Unlike other Solar Developers, Scalo Solar also understands that the waterproof integrity of a client’s building is first and foremost. We represent roofing and solar manufacturers alike and coordinate the design and specific detail requirements to maintain and even enhance roof warranties. We provide financial models for both profit and non-profit entities and often invest our own tax equity. This comprehensive approach allows us to deliver a full array of professional services to our clients and manage a multitude of disciplines. 

Our company culture is centered around hard work, fun, trust, transparency, autonomy with flex schedules, measured results, and “people power,” focused on recognition and appreciation.
