Commercial and Industrial Solar


What is Solar for Commercial use?   

Commercial solar may seem straightforward:  Solar for businesses as opposed to residential for homes.  However, commercial solar encompasses a variety of different types of customers and projects.


Commercial Buildings

Solar panels can be installed on rooftops or integrated into building
facades, providing clean and sustainable electricity for office buildings, shopping centers, hotels,
and other commercial establishments. Solar power can significantly reduce operational costs
and enhance the sustainability profile of businesses.



Industrial Facilities

Industrial operations often have high energy demands, making them ideal
candidates for solar energy integration. Solar installations can power manufacturing plants,
warehouses, and other industrial facilities, helping businesses reduce their environmental
footprint while achieving long-term cost savings.





Solar energy can be utilized in the agricultural sector to power irrigation systems,
livestock operations, and grain drying processes. Solar panels installed on farmland can
optimize land use and provide farmers with a reliable and sustainable energy source






Utility Scale Solar Farms

Large-scale solar farms, comprising thousands of solar panels, are
designed to generate massive amounts of electricity for distribution to the grid. These solar
power plants contribute to the overall energy mix and play a significant role in decarbonizing the
energy sector.






Solar Plus Storage

Combining solar energy with energy storage systems, such as batteries or
hydrogen, allows businesses and industries to store excess energy for use during periods of
high demand or when the sun is not shining. Solar-plus-storage solutions enhance grid stability,
enable energy shifting, and provide backup power, further maximizing the benefits of solar

What is Solar for Industrial Processes?

Solar energy can be used to generate heat for a wide variety of industrial applications, including water desalination, enhanced oil recovery, food processing, chemical production, and mineral processing, among many others.  This can be done through concentrating solar-thermal power (CSP) technologies or by using resistive heaters or heat pumps powered by photovoltaic panels.  Since CSP is capable of reaching a wide range of temperatures, it is well suited for many industrial applications.
