Location – Verogy will conduct a survey of how much sunlight your location gets and present a report of what our analysis finds so you can make the right decision. Sunlight is affected by cloudy days and shadows from surrounding buildings and trees so location plays a factor in choosing the right option.
Land options – Open spaces are optimal for ground mounted arrays while locations that are constrained by space may have roof and parking lot canopy options. Each option has its benefits. Roof systems can use 70% of the open roof space after accounting for mechanical and other roof structures.
Accessibility – Your building or facility may already be connected to the grid but Verogy will make sure that your system is compatible.
Economics – Every kilowatt hour you produce onsite goes toward lowering energy demand, which means you lower what you spend on energy each month. That’s the simple economics behind solar. Additionally, some localities allow you to sell renewable attributes through Solar Renewable Energy Credits. This is an attractive option for commercial solar projects for additional cost savings.
