Offsetting some or all of your electricity use at a factory or small business with solar reduces electric bills from day one. Plus, solar panel systems operate effectively for over 30 years, and once your business makes back the upfront investment for their system, you can generate free electricity from their panel system for many
There are multiple rebates and incentives available for commercial solar installations. In addition to the investment tax credit (ITC) that allows for the deduction of 22 percent of the cost of the solar energy system from federal taxes, commercial property owners can write off the value of their solar installation through the Modified Accelerated Cost
The solar panels used in commercial and industrial-scale installations are oftentimes larger than residential panels. Large-scale commercial solar installations usually use 96-cell or greater solar panels, meaning each panel is made of 96 or more individual solar photovoltaic cells. For comparison, a typical residential solar panel will have 60 or 72 cells. There are often
Most commercial and industrial solar installations are substantially larger than a typical residential solar panel system. For perspective, the average size of a residential solar panel system is around 8 kilowatts (kW), while a commercial solar energy system can be up to several megawatts (MW) in size, depending on the electricity needs of the facility.
It is possible to build an “off-grid” solar system, though it can be expensive and complicated. Generally, the systems we build are for residential solar systems in the suburbs of NY and are not designed to work off the grid. Batteries are an option to power your home in the event of a power system
Batteries are an excellent add-on to any system. They provide added safety for your family in the event of an emergency. Speak with your program manager if you would like to find out more about this option for you.
One of the keys to an effective solar system is a proper installation. The roof is the foundation of every system. We will do an in-depth investigation into your roof to ensure it is in the best condition to give you the most life out of your solar system. This means checking both the quality
While solar panels shouldn’t damage your roof, they can in the very rare case that they’re installed incorrectly. For most people experiencing solar panel problems, the issue is as simple as incorrect wiring, dirty materials, or reduced panel efficiency. In the case of panels that cause leaking, however, the problem can be a bit deeper.
If your system is installed correctly, there should be little to no maintenance required. Here on the east coast, we don’t get big dust storms and the rain will wash off anything that does settle on the panels. We would recommend trimming back any trees that directly hang over the home to ensure leaves don’t
This is one of the most common questions homeowners have when it comes time to go solar. In virtually all cases, the answer is no. Roof leaks after solar panels are extremely rare. When roof leaking after the solar panels are fitted does occur, however, it usually becomes evident very quickly after the installation process
