Solar and Battery Storage

Harness the power of the sun to generate sustainable, reliable, and cost-effective energy for your business.

Electricity costs directly impact your bottom line

According to the United States Energy Information Administration (EIA), total world energy consumption is expected to rise 28% by 2040. Add in an aging grid infrastructure and rising fuel costs and the future of traditional energy supplies looks very expensive. Additionally, prices for grid electricity are unpredictable and can vary widely from month to month, making forecasting operating expenses difficult. By installing solar, you can lock in the price of your electricity — at a price substantially lower than from the utility.

Solar power is a truly sustainable energy solution

Every day, you could be drawing on a natural and sustainable resource to power your business and reduce reliance on the grid. Solar power enables you to generate your own electricity onsite by converting the power of the sun into 100% renewable electricity, helping you meet your corporate sustainability goals. As solar power does not have any pollutants or carbon emissions, you will significantly reduce your impact on the environment.

Solar power unlocks value from your roof or parking lot

Solar is designed to generate electricity using free fuel from the sun, reducing your operating expenses and carbon footprint. Solar can even unlock value from otherwise unused assets like your roof or parking lot to create an additional revenue stream.

Solar can also be combined with a Battery Storage solution to maximize your energy strategy with flexibility of energy use and add business resilience.

A luxury car dealership combined solar with LED lighting technology to reduce their energy costs by 89% and save $1.4M over 25 years—savings that go straight to the bottom line.
A green-focused intermediate school reduced their energy costs by 43% and offset 39% of their electricity usage with solar power—allowing them to reinvest in their students.
A fast-growing mortgage lender reduced their energy costs by 69%, saving $1.5M over 25 years—facilitating new mechanisms for investing in the company by going solar.

What is Solar power?

Solar power is a renewable source of generation that works by absorbing sunlight and converting it into electricity. Solar panels are mounted on the roof of a building, on a carport, or on the ground (such as in a field).

The power generated can be used directly onsite, stored in a battery system for later use or, in some cases, fed back into the grid to create an additional revenue stream. It is 100% sustainable, reliable, and cost-effective – ideal for businesses that want to reduce both energy costs and carbon emissions.
