Medium Voltage Interconnection

One of the best ways to manage extra solar energy is to sell it back to your local electric company. It’s a green choice for the community. Castillo Engineering creates the actual design and hookup needed for medium voltage interconnections from solar PV systems to the electrical company.

Castillo Engineering Services provides high-end designs to hookup the energy that solar PV systems generate to what the electric company accepts. With experience and expertise in solar energy, Castillo Engineering crafts designs that are safe, effective, and high quality.

Designed to Permit

Castillo Engineering creates medium voltage interconnection designs with the permit and utility company regulations in place. This way, less time is spent trying to get the design approved. The company also creates plans that use a minimal bill of materials to reduce costs. After discussing the needs of the project, the team of professional engineers creates the designs, sends them for a QA review, then sends them back to the contractor for feedback.
