Commercial Solar Panels & Systems

See how a Typical Warehouse unlocks $900,000 in savings

The financial advantages of solar energy that your business could generate with an onsite solar system will vary based on:

  1. The amount of roof area available for solar
  2. Solar performance at your location

All properties are different but, on average, a typical commercial solar energy installation can fit about 10 watts of solar capacity per square foot of roof area.

Let's look at an example

A Roof with Potential for Solar
After a business or nonprofit completes our online, site-specific roof vetting process, we evaluate whether or not their building could benefit from a commercial solar panel system on their building.

Solar Generation for a 100kW Solar Panel System

The amount of solar energy a system will produce is based on site-specific performance (referred to as energy yield) and the solar system size.

The system’s energy yield is calculated based on several considerations:

The intensity of sunlight at your location
Local weather patterns
Orientation of solar panels
Solar panel shading by roof obstructions, nearby buildings or trees
In the case of the building above, the solar energy system’s annual energy yield is about 1,500 kWh/kW, meaning that the 100kW system will produce about 150,000 kWh, or 150 MWh, each year.

Solar unlocks $900,000 in savings for this building!

In our example, the commercial solar energy system would offset nearly 50% of the business’s annual electricity use (300,000 kWh), leading to $25,000 of savings in the first year.

The 100 kW solar system would also qualify for significant solar panel Tax Credits and continue to save on energy costs!

System as a Whole

Solar Systems are incredibly reliable, given that there are no moving parts and only a few system components.

Solar Inverters

Solar inverters typically last up to 20 years. It is important to plan for one inverter replacement during the life of your solar system.
