Solar PV Systems
Solar Photovoltaic technology has been around since 1954 converting sunlight to power equipment and loads within a home or facility or manufacturing industry.
Installing a solar system is a forward-thinking way for companies to both decrease their overall carbon footprint and to save money in the long-term. Solar systems do require a substantial upfront investment, but most commercial (non municipal or solar systems) pay for themselves within around five to ten years—and the average life of a solar system is 25 to 30 years.
Solar energy is not as new as some people think. Solar photovoltaic technology that converts sunlight into direct current (DC) electricity and then into alternating current (AC) has been around since 1954. The final electrical product, AC, is the type of electricity needed to power everything from lightbulbs to industrial machines.
Northwest Edison can help you navigate the entire solar installation process, from evaluating your site, designing a solar photovoltaic system, choosing the best types of technology given your location, temperatures, and sun exposure to installing and maintaining the actual solar solar panels.
Our experienced team will help you choose which type of system is best, identify the optimal size of your solar installation, and determine the best location suited to solar for your property. We are brand agnostic and we recognize that different solar pv manufacturers have different strengths. Our team will help you find the best products given your location and your energy needs. There is also an opportunity to expand the capabilities of your facility through the design and installation of intuitive controls.
Additionally, we will help you decide if energy storage is the best strategy, or if feeding excess power back into the energy grid is a better option. Whichever strategy is best for you company, we’ll help you get it set up.
The benefits of solar power include:
- A buffer from rising energy costs
- Lowered carbon footprint
