Commercial Solar Systems

How Do Commercial Solar Systems Work?

Grid-tied solar systems on commercial properties provide businesses with an efficient way to harness solar energy, reduce electricity costs, and enhance sustainability efforts. These systems are connected to the local power grid, allowing companies to utilize solar power during the day and draw from the grid when needed.

Roof Mount

Solar racking is mounted directly to the roof. This system is ideal for buildings with good exposure to the sun with few obstructions and little shading. The roofing substrate should be in good condition prior to installing solar.

Ground Mount

Ideal for larger energy needs, ground-mounted systems can be positioned to maximize your solar energy generation.

Benefits of Commercial Solar

By integrating solar energy, businesses can offset a significant portion of their energy consumption with renewable resources and potentially earn credits for excess energy produced. This approach not only reduces operational expenses but also demonstrates a commitment to environmental responsibility, boosting the company’s green credentials and appeal to eco-conscious customers.

Our Process

No Obligation Info Session
Contact us for more information about our prices and to learn more about solar energy. To provide you with an accurate quote, we will need a copy of your current electrical bill. Our team will then provide a preliminary design, pricing and info package based on historical energy consumption and satellite imagery of your site.
Confirm Project Details
Once you approve the package, we will schedule an appointment for a site visit to confirm details such as the roof condition and surrounding shade and obstructions. We will also review all existing electrical systems and the transformer size. We will confirm the pricing and provide a purchasing agreement for you to sign.
Approvals & Permitting
If your package includes a grid-tied solar system, we will apply for electrical grid interconnection on your behalf. We will also submit permit applications and engineering applications, if applicable, before ordering your products and components. Together, we will schedule a date for the installation.
Install & Commission
Leave it to us to install and commission your solar PV system. Our team of qualified installers and electricians performs the installation efficiently and professionally. The AHJ (Authority Having Jurisdiction) and WSP (Wires Service Provider) complete the system inspection, if applicable, and the system is energized upon approval of the inspection.
