A solar installation is a great way to control your energy budget and reduce the environmental impact of your municipal government facilities. We can tailor a solar energy solution for most local, state, and federal institutions. Our installations can encompass a single building, an entire campus environment, or even solar systems located off site.

Why renewable energy for the public sector?

Affordable and Predictable

Solar energy gives municipalities an alternative to expensive, unpredictable energy expenditures. We can beat typical utility rates to provide cost savings from the first day of operation and tremendous savings over the long term. A solar facility operating under a Power Purchase Agreement also provides steady, predictable performance and cost. The result is easier planning, budgeting, and forecasting.

Job Creation

Adopting solar means new job creation in your community. According to The Solar Foundation’s National Solar Job Census, the solar industry employed nearly 174,000 workers across all 50 states by the end of 2014, growing by 86 percent compared to the previous year. Another benefit to embracing solar in your community is that this job growth will directly affect your own citizens.

Insight into Energy Use

Our solar installations provide real-time visibility into system performance through online monitoring. Our secure online dashboard lets municipalities view solar energy production and benchmark all building energy load profiles against one another. It gives the tools you need to learn who is using power, when, and why.

Energy Storage

While solar production offsets energy usage over time, batteries allow you to store this energy for times when the sun isn’t shining so that your peak demand is lower. Storage can also mean backup power for your facility and load shifting.
