A commercial solar installation is a great investment in your San Diego area business because we strive for 100 percent offset of your electric bills. Commercial solar design begins with an analysis of your San Diego electric bills for the last 12 months, and a site visit. There are different components for different situations and we will work with you to find which are best suited for your needs. After the design is finalized, we begin the solar panel installation atop or aside your San Diego property.
We may request to see your energy bills for the last 12 months so that we can get an idea of what your San Diego business will require from your solar panels. Once we figure out how many panels you will need, our commercial solar design engineers come out for a site visit. They will look at your rooftop, which way the slopes face, if shade will play a factor, and other considerations of your commercial solar installation. We will then draft a complete commercial solar design for your San Diego building before we begin any construction.
Most commercial solar installations in San Diego use one of three types of panels: monocrystalline, polycrystalline or thin film. Monocrystalline is the oldest and most widely used, polycrystalline isn’t as efficient but has gained popularity for being less expensive and thin film is a fairly new technology but allows solar panel installation where it was before thought impossible. Commercial solar design might include string inverters, microinverters and power optimizers. There are pros and cons of each technology and we’ll help you determine what’s best for your San Diego property.
Once the design of your San Diego property’s solar system is finalized, the installation moves quickly. We build the frame of the system, which will anchor to your roof and hold the solar panels. We then run all the electrical wiring and install all the electrical components like the inverters and power optimizers. Afterwards, the panels are put into place and adjusted to the proper angle to optimize the use of the sun’s energy. Once this process is complete, your San Diego business will be producing its own energy.
