Solar for Manufacturing Facilities
Trusted by PepsiCo, Sub-Zero, and Target
More Green For Your Bottom Line And Your Community
As utility costs continue to rise, manufacturers are rapidly adopting solar power to reduce operating expenses while locking in decades of levelized energy costs. Environmental stewardship also plays a larger role in today's economy as a younger and more savvy population opts to do business with brands that share their values. Corporate giants like Target, Walmart, Pepsi, Sub-Zero, and countless others have turned to solar to differentiate their business while ensuring a healthier bottom line.
In 2016, solar power became the cheapest energy source in the world, surpassing wind and conventional fossil fuels. Here in the Valley of the Sun, we enjoy more than 300 sunny days every year. Since commercial operations generally use the bulk of their electricity during the daytime, solar panels are the perfect way to offset the largest percentage of your operation’s most expensive electricity demands.
In Solar, Size Matters
Thanks to the economies of scale dynamic, larger commercial solar energy systems generally offer even better long-term savings than their residential counterparts. Third-party pricing data providers, such as EnergySage Solar Marketplace, largely agree that the cost-per-watt of solar energy decreases as system size increases. As a result, commercial and utility-scale solar installations are largely seen as the primary reasons for solar achieving the cheapest energy milestone.
Factory Roofs Sweeten the Deal
Most manufacturing companies have large flat roofs, with ample and easily accessible space that helps to maximize energy production and streamline commercial solar installation. This is different than smaller office buildings, where roof layout can dramatically limit solar panel count thanks to architectural or landscaping elements, such as angled roofs, skylights, or tall trees. The large, flat surface area of most manufacturing buildings means fewer design limitations, more solar panels, and maximum electricity production.
