Energy Independence Tailored To Your Needs
JDS Power’s primary step is to analyze the needs of a client and determine the size of the photovoltaic system. We advise all our clients about ways to reduce consumption and save electricity as lowering usage is typically cheaper than generating it. The smaller the overall consumption, the smaller (and cheaper) a system is needed. There is no benefit to oversize a photovoltaic system.
JDS Power Provides You with the Tools for Cost-Effective Energy
Energy use analysis
Using past energy bills, we will determine the ideal system size to suit your particular electrical needs and to optimize your investment.
An on-site assessment will determine the amount of shading, if any, your site will experience at different times of the day and throughout the year and, measuring the available mounting area to determine the maximum size system your site can accommodate.
A bid will be presented for the cost of the system. This bid will include the administering of all paperwork necessary for the application of your rebate funds, your county permitting, and your utility company net-metered account, all necessary equipment and materials, system installation, and advised on warranty on all parts and installation.
Once the bid is accepted, a contract will be drawn up that will clearly outline the scope of work and the project timeline and upon agreement the contract is executed.
Application of rebate
Directly following the signing of the contract, a rebate application, if available, is submitted to the state for approval.
Upon receiving confirmation from the state, an application for the PV system is submitted to the building department to obtain a permit.
Upon receipt of the necessary permits, the installation of your system will commence with a goal to completion within the timeline agreed upon.
After the system is installed, a county building inspector will inspect and approve the system.
Utility inspection and startup:
After the county has signed off on the project, a utility company meter technician will inspect the system and install the bi-directional smart meter. At this point, the system will be commissioned. At this time the system will be fully operational.
JDS Power will continue to monitor the systems performance for years of worry free operation.
JDS power did an excellent job installing my system. They kept me informed every step of the way during the process and worked to provide me the best product for my energy usage. Jon was always available immediately over the phone and via text. Jon was very honest and transparent with the bottom line and was one of most knowledgable people on solar I spoke with. Jon spoke to me as a friend not a salesperson. I am very happy with my system I would recommend JDS Power to anyone!
JDS power installed our solar system towards the end of 2015 and it’s been wonderful ever since. The crew was very knowledgeable, courteous, and they did really good and clean work. JDS gave me an install schedule and they stuck to it which allowed me to get the solar tax credit when I wanted it. I chose JDS because I could tell Jon was exceptionally well versed in solar power and also because they use really high-end, cutting edge equipment. Great crew, great service, great product, and great follow-up. I highly recommend JDS Power for anyone looking to install solar.
8 months in and just received another “negative” number invoice from SDG&E. Very happy with our solar system from these guys. Put in the right number of panels and did everything they said they would on time. We recommend them without hesitation: professional, reliable and well priced!
We had our system installed by JDS Power back in May of 2013. The JDS system actually still works even when the grid goes down… without adding batteries! No other proposals we received included that capability. More than a year in now and we’re making about 5% more power than what was promised. I also can see exactly what each panel is producing which helps me know when to cut back the fruit trees in front of my panels. Would absolutely recommend that you consult with JDS before you make any decisions about solar.
We would highly recommend them. They are the best at placing the system to get the maximum output. We haven’t had an electrical bill in over 3 years. They are very professional and super reliable! You can trust them because their integrity is exemplary, which is a most valuable quality in this industry!
JDS Power installed my solar system last December and I have been enjoying & loving no electric bill ever since! When Jon came through last year he took the time to tell me all about the technologies in a way I could understand. Great panels, backup power, panel-level monitoring… check, check and check! They arrived as scheduled for installation, and I was delighted by how courteous and professional the entire crew was. They did really clean work, too… no electric pipes running all over the roof… just panels. Choosing JDS was not an easy decision as I know other people in solar. But in the end, JDS just stood out as the most credible with zero pressure. I highly recommend you talk with JDS Power if you’re considering solar. I am extremely happy I chose JDS. … And knowing I can run my A/C this summer… Priceless.
Thanks to a wonderful crew at JDS Power. We were so impressed with your work and the entire crew. Jon and Seth thank you for your patience and wonderful explanation of the solar process. It is a pleasure to work with a crew that truly enjoys their job. Need solar this is the place to use. Thank you again for the wonderful work!!!!!
My wife Cheri and I could not be more pleased with our entire experience. From early preparation, to final inspection, our system is outperforming our expectations daily.

To Jon and Paul,
I wanted to thank you for the completion of our latest solar system together. This makes the 5th complete system that you have installed for my Design and Build company. All of my owners have been well informed of their system options as well as any rebates available. Thanks again for your ongoing support to my SUPERGREEN team.

We recently had a solar power system installed at our home with JDS Power. We had a wonderful experience from start to finish. All of the JDS group behaved professionally and with integrity, and we were extremely pleased with the results. Our home is all electrically powered and we had high monthly bills for years, but now with our solar system we pay a dollar or less each month! We only wish we had done this years ago. JDS follows up with us regularly to be sure that the system is working properly. We highly recommend this solar company and would refer our friends without hesitation.
