Solar for Industrial, Commercial and Institutional Purposes

Solar energy is ideal for many commercial, industrial and institutional purposes. Solar is a practical way to cut down on energy usage, and cost-conscious companies know that solar energy is the perfect way to power remote energy needs, from monitoring stations to lights.

Businesses can save money while they do the right thing for their community.

Today, solar energy is incorporated into office towers, solar thermal heating is used by car washes, and solar electric fences keep crops safe from predators. The following are a few more ways that solar is used to reduce costs and increase profits:

Many commercial buildings have flat (tar and chip) roofs that are unused otherwise. These are an ideal situation for mounting solar panels and panel arrays.

Some businesses and corporations are finding it profitable to use building integrated photovoltaics to decrease energy costs.

Solar is also used by many industries to save metallic structures from corrosion, in a process called cathodic protection .
