Large scale businesses, government agencies, utilities, and commercial residential developments are all candidates to take advantage of the clean power provided by the sun.
In addition to providing energy at a reduced cost, the installation of commercial solar power systems can provide clients with ways to reduce their carbon footprint and take advantage of tax incentives offered to businesses to participate in the trend of solar power.
There are three main areas to consider when choosing a contractor for your commercial solar installation: DIY or turnkey operation; third party or integrated financing; and consulting vs a straight install.
Many commercial clients shy away from installing solar power because of the lack of resources and knowledge needed to manage multifaceted projects such as large solar installations. A turnkey system can take some of the hassles and worry out of the process as a client connecting to a single contractor who provides “cradle-to-grave” support for the project
. They will carefully evaluate and analyze your site for compatible technology then engineer and design the system based on their findings. After that, they negotiate contracts and prices with sub-consultants, manage development at the site and provide quality assurance along the way.
Eventually, they will continue to maintain and monitor your system to the future to continue to work with maximum efficiency. This solution is effective for many customers who do not have the time or resources to deal with multiple contractors, effectively acting as their own construction manager.
In addition, a single contractor means a single point of contact for all issues, makes project management simple and transparent.
