Commercial spaces offer endless opportunities for renewable energy applications. Areas that would typically be inaccessible or unused can be transformed into an asset to help your business meet its increasing energy demands.
Take control of your power bills by locking in your energy costs for the next 30+ years, effectively protecting you from rising power prices.
The math is quite simple, investors are willing to pay more for businesses with lower bills and higher margins.
Each year, more building integrated and stand-alone solar products become available as solar panel technology advances. The latest bi-facial modules make awnings and carports an extremely attractive option as they are extremely durable and allow light to come through. If you own a building or parking lot and want some ideas on how we can add value to existing space, contact us for a consultation today.
I cannot recommend this team enough! I was concerned that my solar project was going to be very complex due to some nuances with my application. The team dug right in, came up with a brilliant solution, got the job done on time, and took care of absolutely everything (including all of the paperwork.) Definitely a happy customer, and I’ve already referred them to a few friends.
With no moving parts and high quality manufacturing standards, solar PV systems are in a class of their own when it comes to durability. Solar modules sold by EVOLVsolar come with a 25-year performance warranty, and generally last much longer than that. The inverters, which convert energy from the Direct Current (DC) produced by the modules to the Alternating Current used on you property, generally have to be replaced after 20 years.
The first step towards installing solar is doing some research and getting a custom quote that takes into account your actual property location and features. At EVOLVsolar, we typically need the following information:
1. Your annual usage in kWh or your monthly billing amount
2. The location that you’d like to install the solar PV array
3. If you’re interested in a roof mount, it also helps that we know the type of roofing (asphalt shingles, metal, etc), the year it was installed and the pitch (e.g. 4/12)
The more information we have, the more accurate our quote will be.
And most importantly, make sure to get solid answers on all your questions - solar PV is a long-term decision that will generally pay you back 3-4 times what you invested over a 25+ year period, but does require an up front investment. It’s important that you feel that you have been listened to and the company you work with will install a quality product designed to stand the test of time.

Trick question – there are no batteries for standard grid-tied solar PV installations. During the day, any excess electricity is sold back to the grid for credits. At night and in the winter months, you can use those credits to purchase electricity back from the grid. Batteries can of course be added to a system for those looking to have power backup in the case of emergencies.
Making an investment in solar is a personal decision, so only you can answer that. Some questions that you may want to ask yourself include:
If the answer to a few of those questions is yes, then solar might be right for you. Of course, we here at EVOLVsolar will work hard to get you all the information you need to make the right decision.
