Commercial Solar Panels
Commercial solar panels are available for your commercial space, regardless of the size. In fact, if you own or operate a commercial space and already see your utility bills soaring to maintain the building’s interior comfort, you might actually reap more benefits from solar panels being installed for commercial use. Many commercial spaces, due to their size, find it difficult to maintain the interiors because of all of the lights, HVAC, and water outlets needed to accommodate all of the employees, visitors, and guests that use the facilities.
The installation process of integrating commercial solar panels includes planning, measuring, and consultations with professionals. If it’s a new building in the works, we’ll work directly with contractors on how we can integrate the system into the new build. If the building is already erected, we’ll liaison between contractors and space managers to find the best locations and process for how to install the solar panels and the solar system in its entirety. Once established, installation may take a few days for a transitional period before it will be fully operational and functional for commercial use.
In a larger space, like commercial buildings, multiple panels are needed to increase productivity of energy being converted. If you attempt to only use one solar panel for a whole building, you might actually see little to no difference in the energy bills and usage, simply because more energy will have to be emitted from the solar panels in order to power the bigger space. The solar panels must meet the space requirements, meaning that the panels should be big enough to provide energy for the entire space and not just a small percentage of the time.
Large-scale projects typically include commercial spaces that are multilevel and contain various stores or office spaces that we must accommodate as well. Since some of the spaces in a commercial building are rented out separately to various tenants, we must plan accordingly to ensure that every section and space of the commercial building has access to the same solar power energy sources and the system itself is coherent. Only having solar panels on one side of the building can mean certain offices benefit more from the energy used, while offices on the other side of the building would suffer or not see as many benefits from solar energy. To avoid this, commercial planning is vital.
While it may seem like a challenge to take on commercial solar maintenance on your own, you don’t have to! We employ a team of professionals who are well-equipped in how to manage and maintain commercial solar spaces and what to look out for when performing general maintenance, repairs, and inspections. If your commercial space is located in an area where there’s high smog or smoke, such as downtown or in an industrial park, then cleaning your solar panels could prove to be beneficial as well – something we have experience in and can help you take care of.
