It is a growing trend for consumers to do business with “green” companies. Going green can help you to market your business and connect with new markets, thereby increasing sales.
The Components of Your Commercial Solar Power System
Commercial solar power installations are a bit different than residential installations. For one, the panels typically contain 96 cells as compared to residential panels, which typically contain only 72 cells. Because they are bigger, commercial panels are more efficient than residential ones. They are about two percent (2%) more efficient at absorbing the sun’s energy. In addition to that, most solar powered systems for commercial buildings can be a bit easier to install than residential panels. The reason for this is because most commercial buildings have flat rooftops, as opposed to the typical slanted residential ones.
Solar Installations for commercial buildings can include over 100 panels as opposed to residential installations of around 16-18 panels. Therefore, it is reasonable to expect that commercial systems take a bit longer to install. The typical installation time for commercial systems is about a week. However, this will vary widely depending on the size of the system.
