Commercial solar power systems are similar to residential solar systems. The big difference is the size and scale of the solar project. A large residential solar may be 20kw which is fifty 400 watt solar panels. A large commercial solar installation could have hundreds or thousands of solar panels!
The basics remain the same solar panels to convert sunlight into electricity, reducing your companies reliance on the power grid and their often unreasonable tiered usage rates. Upgrading to solar will lower your monthly energy costs.
Key components of a commercial solar system include:
The return on investment of a commercial solar installation can be calculated accurately. HedgeHog Electric and Solar has a commercial division that handles large commercial projects (hotels, grocery stores, apartment complexes, etc.) Our team has the patience that answers your team will need to be confident moving forward with a commercial solar installation.
If you are a business that works during traditional business hours, then 80-90% of your electricity usage is happening during the day when the sun is shining! Solar panels you own could be producing the electricity your business needs to operate. Why buy power from the power company when you can create your own electricity at a lower cost?
Electricity is a big operating cost for most businesses. Upgrading to solar will allow you to take control and effectively lock in your electricity power rates for the next 25 years. When you upgrade to solar panel, you reduce the impact that future electricity rate hikes will have on your business.
Commercial solar installed by Hedgehog Electric is integrated with your buildings existing electrical system. Our team will carefully review your existing electrical system and daily power demands.
A commercial solar installation is practically maintenance free. After it is installed it will capture and convert sunlight into usable electricity for your business.
Over the lifetime of a commercial rooftop solar system businesses create their own electricity at a lower cost per watt than they can buy it from the local power company.

Commercial solar installations are typically “grid-tied systems”. A grid-tied solar installation often makes the most sense for businesses. It also allows the business to take advantage of net metering agreements.
