Testimonials

"The best part about working with McCalmont Engineering is working with solar professionals who have real-world construction experience in solar. Most engineering firms understand solar primarily from an electrical or structural engineering theory point of view, but they've never installed a system or performed troubleshooting on an array. McCalmont's roots in solar construction allows them to produce designs that are not just technically correct, but also practical to install."

-Jaymes C.
Vice President
Vista Solar, Inc.

"They're very solar-specific—I think the best part about the McCalmont group is that they have done a lot of solar, and all around the world—they've  seen it all and done it all."

 -Ryan L.
Vice President of Business Development
Sustainable Power Group- sPower

 "We had some needs that went beyond the normal solar design and engineering scope… McCalmont was an extremely valuable resource in assisting us with those complex issues."

"What I like about McCalmont is that they are independent of any sort of construction group and it gives us the ability to be more objective and not be immediately tied to one way of doing things…We treat McCalmont like our internal engineering."

"McCalmont was one of the few firms that we were able to identify that was able to do the complete package and say, 'We can handle the structural engineering.  We can handle the electrical engineering.  We can do all the drafting.  And we can assemble a permit-ready set.'"

-Jaymes C.
Vice President
Vista Solar, Inc.

"Tom brings depths of experience that other electrical engineers don't have—especially the solar experience—very specific experience in the industry that just adds value—knowing that we are not going to make a mistake than perhaps we would with someone with less practical experience." 

-Halsey K.
Project Manager
