Now more than ever, companies are leveraging renewable energy as a central element to their overall corporate energy strategy. Onsite solar energy can help businesses lower electricity costs, reduce reliance on the grid, provide budget stability and showcase environmental leadership among customers and industry peers. 

How Commercial Onsite Solar Works

NES Commercial rooftop solar diagramCommercial solar is installed on company-owned rooftops, ground-mounted on land, or erected as canopies over property or parking lots. With the solar panels in place, energy from the sun is turned into direct current (DC) via the panels and converted into alternating current (AC) through an inverter. The meter measures the inflow and outflow of energy from the grid and the utility grid sends electricity back to the facility as needed.

The Benefits of Onsite Solar Energy 

  • Reduce energy costs 
    Clean, renewable, solar energy reduces electricity and overall operational costs while providing energy independence and budget certainty.  

  • Reallocate and reinvest 
    By saving on electricity and overall operational costs, you’ll free up financial resources that can be allocated into other areas of your business.   

  • Generate revenue and RECs 
    Renewable electricity generators produce two distinct market commodities: electricity and renewable energy credits (RECs). These commodities can be used and/or sold separately or together. RECs embody the environmental attributes of the underlying electricity generated from a renewable energy source. We can help you determine the most advantageous strategy for your onsite solar system.  

  • Demonstrate ESG oversite 
    Demonstrating your organization’s commitment to environmental, social, and governance (ESG) impacts can positively influence the perceptions of a broad group of stakeholders including investors, employees, customers, and suppliers.
