The Easy-to-Use Calculator Compares the Costs to Install an Osprey PowerPlatform® with Racking Systems using Conventional Foundations 

San Ramon, CAAugust 28, 2017 – Nuance Energy, manufacturer of the patent-pending Osprey PowerPlatform® and developer of distributed generation solar projects through its AgWell Solar® division in California’s Central Valley, today announced the availability of a ground mount Solar Cost Comparison Calculator on its website. The calculator lets users specify the system’s size in Watts and various actual costs to provide a realistic comparison.

The calculator has 12 fields for entering data about the size of the system, local labor rates, crew size and anticipated days on site, and the number of foundations/piers needed. Users can also enter the cost of a geotechnical survey and equipment rental (neither of which is required for the earth anchor foundation system used with the Osprey PowerPlatform), and any other costs that should be included in a general-purpose “Additional Costs” field.

The results show both the per-Watt and total project costs for both systems, as well as the cost savings with the Osprey PowerPlatform. Labor savings, also on a per-Watt and total project basis, are shown separately, as are the time-to-complete and time savings for the project.

“The Osprey PowerPlatform is, without a doubt, the easiest, fastest and least expensive ground mount solar solution available today,” says Brian C. Boguess, Nuance Energy’s co-founder and CEO. “The calculator is designed to quantify the savings EPCs, contractors and installers should expect to receive compared to using racking systems with conventional foundations.”


Nuance Energy is making solar energy substantially more affordable. The company’s patent-pending Osprey PowerPlatform® solar ground mount racking system employs a unique earth anchor and modular, scalable design to enable contractors, integrators and EPCs to achieve peak profitability through the industry’s lowest installation costs and fastest time-to-revenue for ground mounted systems. Nuance Energy’s mission is to lead solar innovation while focused on the solar industry’s downstream value chain saving partners and customers time and money. Headquartered in San Ramon, CA, Nuance Energy ( and its subsidiary AgWell Solar ( provide design, engineering, installation and financing for select projects.
