About Lean Solar
Lean Solar is a developer, manufacturer, and installer of “turnkey” high quality modular ground-mount solar systems for industrial applications. Our projects provide payback periods of 3 to 5 years with an average cost of $2.75 per Watt-DC for the project; 30% less than any systems available in the market. We form a team with customers to share the summary of our research, review and analyze current energy usage, and manage the entire project including; concept design, system design, municipalities permit process, manufacturing, installation, and interconnection with utility companies. We implement the entire project in 45 to 60 days; 50% less time than our competitors. This is achieved through our modular design and manufacturing; as well as pre-assembled installation. Our system is “Designed and Made in USA” and has a 20 year warranty.
Lean Solar established in 2016, was chartered with the mission to develop an innovative and cost effective solar system for its parent company, Nemat Inc. in order to substantially reduce energy costs and manufacturing overhead.
Lean solar created an innovative and simple design for manufacturing and installation of ground mount solar systems. The system was developed through a strategic partnership with Graybar Inc. (a well-known distributor of solar components & storage batteries) to assist with research and understanding of; utilities rate structures, federal and states tax incentive programs, new technologies available in photovoltaics, invertors, and storage batteries; as well as competitive pricing.
A benchmark study of a “60 Mega-Watt” solar farm on “500-Acres” was also performed to learn from the “best in practice”. Companies constructing solar farms have become extremely efficient in implementing solar systems due to the scale of their projects.
Lean Solar developed this creative solar system utilizing; the research information as well as Nemat Inc. 30 years of experience in innovation, lean engineering, lean manufacturing, supply chain management, and strong teamwork. This system enabled Nemat Inc. to implement a 150 KW-DC solar system at its headquarters facility in Madera, California during the spring of 2017.
This payback period for this system was 2.5 years and it enabled Nemat Inc. to reduce 75% of the energy costs.
