Many business owners are constantly looking for ways to cut down on operating and energy costs while becoming more environmentally friendly. If this sounds like you, keep reading our blog to find out if going solar is right for your business.

Benefits of Going Solar

Before we get into the nitty gritty of the solar installation process for your commercial business, let’s first discuss the general benefits of solar energy. Like we mentioned above, going solar means improving your energy efficiency while also helping the environment. So, if you’re interested in some other benefits of solar energy, we’ve listed a few below for you:

  • Reduced dependence on power grids
  • You will still have power even in the event of a power outage or natural disaster
  • Improves the value of your business

Questions to Ask Yourself

Before deciding on going solar, there are a few questions you should know the answers to first, such as:

  • How much power does your business require?
  • Is there ample land or roof space available for solar panels to be installed?
  • Is there enough sunlight where you plan to have the solar panels installed?

Once you’ve figured out the answers to these questions and think solar could be a fit for you, the next step is contacting Current Electric Co..

How Current Electric Co. Will Help

Once you contact our team, we’ll walk you through every step of the solar installation process. One of our Energy Consultants will assess your business’s current electrical system and ask about your goals for your business. Then, our solar designers will design a system that they will present to you to discuss your options. Some of the things our designers will take into account are:

  • The position of your business and construction of the roof
  • Sun exposure
  • Shaded areas and anything else that could affect your production capabilities

Once you speak with our designers and approve the design, you will have an assigned Project Manager who will walk you through every step of the installation process. Your Project Manager will handle tasks such as ordering the materials needed for the installation, scheduling a date of service, working with your utility provider to secure any necessary approvals, and more.

Current Electric Co.’s Solar Service Plan

At Current Electric Co., we don’t just install your solar panel system and then leave you to deal with upkeep afterwards. We’ll also be here for you after the installation is complete by monitoring your system for the first year after the installation.

Aside from monitoring your system to ensure you are getting the power we promised, we also offer our solar customers membership in our Solar Service Plan (SSP). Solar customers who are members of this plan will receive a yearly report on their system’s energy production, priority service, and an annual inspection of their system to ensure everything is going as planned.

If you’re interested in solar power for your business, you can trust our team at Current Electric Co. to power your business efficiently and safely. Two decades ago, our team installed its first solar panels, and we are proud to say we still work with that customer today. We are committed to providing our customers with the highest quality of service, especially when it comes to solar power.
