Solar Bid Check is a resource for solar vendors and their customers to check and verify the accuracy of financial projections in solar proposals. Solar Bid Check provides an independent, objective analysis of the assumptions and calculations in solar proposals and will produce a Verification Report Stamp of Approval if the proposal meets reasonable industry standards.
Solar Bid Check was created by Utility Cost Management LLC (UCM), California’s leader in utility data analysis. Solar Bid Check’s method of analyzing solar vendors’ financial calculations was developed after UCM’s analysts identified costly discrepancies in solar proposals that were presented to UCM clients. UCM recognized that the complexity of savings calculations made it virtually impossible for solar vendors and customers to differentiate between proposals that were honest and accurate, and those that were not. Solar Bid Check relies on the System Advisor Model (SAM) developed by the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) to make its own independent calculations using data from solar vendors’ proposals. When Solar Bid Check’s analysis is complete, the Verification Report is issued. The report will either approve the First-Year and Long Term financial projections, or it will describe where each proposal fell short.
