Why is commercial solar difficult to evaluate?

Energy usage. Utility rates. Financing options. Policy and regulation. There are so many factors that add to the complexity of evaluting a commercial solar project. 

Not to mention the size and scale of these projects. It can all be very overwhelming.

Seeking expert consultant advice is crucial in navigating the process and making an informed decision.

We make it simple.

Business owners often tell us that they've looked at solar before, but it didn't make sense. 

As commercial solar experts, we make the process easy and straightforward.

We understand the pain points that businesses face when considering solar, and we've developed a streamlined approach designed to help you make an informed decision and make going solar easy and stress-free. 

Our three-phase process is simple.

1. Identify

Upon reviewing the site portfolio and estimating financial and CO2e impacts, a roadmap for a sustainable business plan is formulated.

2. Investigate

After reviewing all electric data, preliminary commercial solar designs are crafted, enabling a detailed financial analysis and feasibility check for the project.

3. Implement

Following the site survey and design, we prepare utility pre-applications and permit-ready drawings before finalizing the project budget and begin your commercial solar installation journey.

What Our Customers Are Saying

As we continue to add more EV options for customers, our electricity use will continue go up. It just makes sense to invest in clean energy. This is a major step towards our goal of becoming a more sustainable and environmentally friendly business.

General Questions
Think of a commercial solar system as a powerhouse specifically designed for businesses.

It's an eco-friendly powerhouse that uses sun's energy to power your operations, trim down your electricity bills, and boosts your green credentials.
Before you install commercial solar panels, consider the following: the solar panel system cost, the amount of rooftop space or land available for a ground mount or solar farm, the average electricity costs of your commercial buildings, and the potential savings and local incentives.
Commercial solar panels are the big leagues in the solar world.

They are built to last, engineered for maximum efficiency, and scaled to suit the energy needs of everything from small boutiques to sprawling warehouses.

When you choose commercial solar panels with ESA, you're investing in a future where your energy is as sustainable as it is cost-effective.
When planning a large-scale commercial solar installation, the space required is contingent on several variables, including the size and efficiency of the solar panels and the desired system capacity, which for ESA's projects, can range from 300 kW to 1.7 MW.

Typically, a commercial solar panel measuring 6.5 by 3 feet occupies about 20 square feet, meaning installations of over 1,000 panels could require an area spanning several acres.

Such sizable projects often necessitate the use of multiple rooftops as well as ground mounts and solar carports within the same complex to accommodate the required number of panels.

This multifaceted approach ensures the most effective use of available space, while significantly contributing to the generation of renewable energy.

ESA's approach involves a comprehensive site evaluation to consider factors such as site layout and potential obstructions, ensuring the commercial solar array is efficiently designed to meet the business's energy needs and optimize energy production.
We're all about choices and finding the perfect solar match for your business. Whether it's turning your parking area into a power-producing commercial solar carport or opting for a traditional ground-mounted system, we'll figure out the most efficient setup for your space before we roll up our sleeves and get to work.
Installing solar panels is a powerful step towards reducing your business's carbon footprint. By harnessing solar power, you're choosing a renewable energy source that emits little to no carbon dioxide, thereby contributing less to global warming.
Yes, solar farms are an excellent solution for businesses lacking rooftop space. Though power purchase agreements and virtual net metering, off-site solar farms can be a utility-scale project on how much land is available, providing a substantial amount of solar electricity to either the business directly or to the local power grid.
Solar cells convert the sun's rays into electricity by creating an electric field across layers of silicon, which is then harnessed by the photovoltaic arrays. The electricity generated can either be used immediately, stored, or sent back to the grid through net metering.
Solar electric systems can be designed to meet the full energy requirements of your business, making you less reliant on the local power grid and traditional electricity providers. The exact capacity will depend on your solar design, the photovoltaic arrays, and your energy consumption.
Solar arrays can be connected to the local power grid through a process known as net metering. This allows your business to feed excess solar electricity back into the grid, potentially earning credits and reducing electricity costs even further.
Commercial solar panel systems typically have lower maintenance costs compared to other forms of electricity generation. Regular inspections and cleaning are generally all that's required to keep the solar arrays operating efficiently.
The price tag on a commercial solar project varies based on the project's scale, the type of your buildings, and how many there are. And it's not just about the upfront cost; consider the tax perks and the savings on your energy bills, which can make solar an even smarter investment.
Yes, businesses can benefit from a federal tax credit which significantly reduces the system cost. Furthermore, local incentives and solar tax credits can also help small businesses and government agencies save money when installing solar panels.
The solar tax credit can reduce the overall cost of installing commercial solar panels by allowing businesses to deduct a percentage of the installation cost from their federal taxes. This, combined with reduced electricity and operating costs, makes solar power a financially attractive option.
While the initial system cost for commercial solar panels can be higher than traditional electricity expenses, the long-term savings on energy costs and the benefits of solar tax credits significantly offset the upfront investment. Additionally, solar electric systems can provide protection against rising electricity costs.
