Commercial solar and energy storage
Commercial solar and energy storage is a powerful combination that can help businesses save money, reduce their carbon footprint, and improve their resilience. Solar panels generate electricity from the sun, while energy storage systems like batteries store excess energy for later use. This allows businesses to use more of the solar energy they produce, reducing their reliance on the grid and lowering their electricity bills.
Here are some of the benefits of commercial solar and energy storage:
• Cost savings: Businesses can save significant money on their electricity bills by generating their own clean energy. Solar panels can pay for themselves over time, and energy storage systems can help businesses avoid peak demand charges.
• Reduced carbon footprint: Solar energy is a clean and renewable resource that does not produce greenhouse gas emissions. By using solar power, businesses can help to combat climate change.
• Improved resilience: Energy storage systems can provide backup power during grid outages, keeping businesses operational even when the power goes out.
• Increased property value: Studies have shown that buildings with solar panels can sell for more money than comparable buildings without solar.
If you are a business owner or manager, you should consider investing in commercial solar and energy storage. It is a smart decision that can save you money, reduce your environmental impact, and improve your business’s resilience.

Here are some additional things to consider when making a decision about commercial solar and energy storage:
• The size of your business: The amount of solar energy you can generate, and store will depend on the size of your business and your energy needs.
• Your budget: Solar and energy storage systems can be a significant investment, but there are a number of financial incentives available to help offset the cost.
• Your local climate: The amount of sunlight you receive will affect the amount of solar energy you can generate.
• Your energy usage: Understanding your energy usage patterns will help you determine the size of the solar and energy storage system you need.
While commercial energy storage solutions can offer significant potential for savings, it’s important to be cautious about claims of “guaranteed savings.” Here’s why:
Savings are not always guaranteed:
• Factors impacting results: Savings depend on your specific situation, including energy costs, usage patterns, peak demand charges, system size and efficiency, financing options, and potential incentives.
• Performance and degradation: Battery performance and lifespan can affect long-term savings. Degradation over time can reduce energy storage capacity and impact potential savings.
• Market fluctuations: Energy prices and incentive programs can change, affecting your long-term return on investment.
What to consider instead of “guarantees”:
• Projected savings: Look for estimates based on detailed analysis of your energy use, costs, and system design.
• Return on investment (ROI): Evaluate the projected payback period and overall ROI to understand the financial viability of the solution.
Reduce energy charges with solar:
Solar panels can definitely help reduce your base energy charges, but it’s not quite as simple as flipping a switch. Here’s a breakdown of what you can expect:
Solar’s Impact on Base Charges:
• Not a Direct Reduction: Base charges often cover fixed costs like grid maintenance, not just energy usage. So, while solar reduces your energy consumption, it might not directly impact your base charge.
• Potential for Credits: Many utility companies offer net metering programs. This means any excess energy your solar panels generate gets sent back to the grid, earning you credits that can offset your base charges.
• Time-of-Use Billing: If you have time-of-use billing, where electricity prices vary based on demand, strategically utilizing solar can be very beneficial. By using more solar energy during peak hours, you can significantly reduce your overall cost.
Additional Strategies to Combine with Solar:
• Energy Efficiency: Reducing your overall energy consumption through measures like upgrading appliances and sealing air leaks will amplify the cost savings from solar.
• Battery Storage: Adding a battery storage system to your solar setup allows you to store excess energy for later use, further reducing your reliance on the grid and potentially lower your base charges.
• Community Solar: If installing your own system isn’t feasible, consider joining a community solar program where you subscribe to a shared solar array and receive credits on your bill.
• Savings vary: Your specific financial outcome depends on factors like your location, utility rates, solar system size, and energy usage patterns.
By understanding how solar interacts with base charges and utilizing additional strategies, you can maximize your cost savings and reap the full benefits of renewable energy.
