Commercial Solar

Eagle Solar & Light utilizes a unique blend of design and construction expertise to provide turn-key solar solutions for organizations of all sizes from small businesses to large warehouses.

Commercial Solar is a Good Business Decision

  • Energy represents about 19 percent of total expenditures for the typical office building. This clearly makes energy a significant operational cost deserving management attention.
  • With the addition of solar energy, your business is fixing your energy prices in a market that experiences 2-3% inflation from year to year.
  • Commercial buildings that have large roofs can benefit by having more space for solar panels, ultimately replacing 30-60 % of their monthly power usage from the utility.
  • Businesses that utilize both the ITC and the MACRS Tax depreciation can save an average of 50% of the overall cost of their solar power system through tax benefits.
  • Return on investment of solar power for commercial businesses averages between 4-7 years for a system that lasts 20 - 30 years.
  • Commercial solar systems can reduce energy costs, allowing businesses to maximize potential savings that can be reinvested into their core growth strategy.
  • The majority of our commercial systems use a non-penetrating ballasted racking system with non-degradable felt pads, protecting the integrity of your roof.

Our Solar Installation Process:

Our representatives will discuss the ins and outs of solar with you to insure your understanding of solar power and how it will benefit your business. We also discuss how the integration of sustainability into your business plan will help you grow. Depending on the system power and size a second meeting with various positions of your company may be necessary for further clarification on solar power and its benefits. In most cases, we will begin moving forward by studying your utility bills to match your business with the most efficient solar array.
At this stage, one or more of our representatives will perform a site assessment of the property to roof to determine the best place of a solar array. We also review the electrical capacity of your building. If necessary, representatives will take measurements of roofs and obstructions to refine the design of the solar array. Any concerns or questions about the solar potential of your business will be covered during the site assessment. After the site assessment is performed, we create a hand tailored solar proposal that covers everything from what your solar array will produce on a monthly basis vs. what you are paying your utility, to the return on investment, to warranty, to size of solar system array and more.
Your Eagle Solar & Light representative will review your detailed proposal and address any further questions or concerns you may have. Once agreement is reached, we send in a interconnection request with your utility company.

After professional engineers approve (stamp) our structural and electrical designs, Eagle Solar & Light handles the submission of the building permits with the city or county where your business resides. This process can take up to 4 weeks depending on the location of the installation.

After the permit process has finished and materials have been ordered, we will schedule the installation with you and your company.
After safety equipment is prepared and materials arrive, Eagle Solar & Light will begin the installation process. The installation itself is non-intrusive and typically without heavy machinery. Being typically on the roof of a building, installation of solar equipment can be weather dependent. Once the installation of solar equipment is complete and the wiring of the system has finished, a certified electrician performs the interconnection with the utility company. After interconnection, the final inspections by city or county takes place.
After the final inspection is completed, you are producing power and offsetting your utility bill every day.

COMMON COMMERCIAL SYSTEMS

Grid-Tied

Grid-Tied-Solar Setup

A “grid-tied” solar system is exactly that, interconnected to the national electrical grid system that feeds electricity from your utility to all homes, businesses, farms, etc.  This system simply consists of solar panels and inverters which convert the energy from direct current (DC) to alternating current (AC). Although these solar systems are tied to the grid, the power generated from your solar system is consumed by your home or business first and any excess energy is fed into the grid.  Alternatively, when the sun isn’t shining, such as during storms or nighttime, your home or business will receive its electricity needs from the grid without interruption.
