Frequently Asked Questions

1. How do I know if solar will work on my business?


ecoSolargy offers more than one way to go solar. A solar system can be installed on many types of rooftops, on the ground, or over a parking lot. With so many options to choose from, you and your ecoSolargy certified installer will decide what’s right for your business by analyzing your site to determine the best system solution. Please review ecoSolargy commercial case studies to understand how other savvy enterprises put solar to work in their businesses.

2. Are incentives or rebates available for commercial solar systems?


The federal government and most states currently offer great incentives to offset the cost of a solar installation. These provisions include billions of dollars for federal cash grants, loan guarantees, funding to state programs and more.
On the state level, incentives are available that reduce the cost of the system, reduce the tax burden on the solar customer and more. For a clearinghouse of all incentives available from the federal government and the states, go to the Database of State Incentives for Renewables and Efficiency (DSIRE). Your solar installer company will work with your business to ensure maximization of financial incentives.

3. What is the process for buying a solar system?


Fill out the ecoSolargy Business Owner Request a Quote Form or call ecoSolargy at 1-877-808-4213. We will connect you to an ecoSolargy certified installer who will guide you through the solar installation process.
  • The first step in the process will be a site assessment, your installer will visit your company to analyze your business’s utility bills and energy usage, and conduct an onsite audit of your site’s physical characteristics.

  • Next, your installer will provide a detailed proposal laying out the system and financials that maximize your solar energy output and savings. Many installers can consult or provide financing options through national or local institutions. Additionally, your installer will ensure your business is able to maximize rebate and tax incentives.

  • The third step is the actual installation. All of the ecoSolargy certified installers have extensive experience in commercial applications and can create a turnkey system.

  • Once your system is up and running, there are many options to allow your company to monitor its system’s performance. Since solar is virtually maintenance free, there are no major maintenance requirements. Many installers do offer both a monitoring and maintenance service to ensure optimal performance.

  • 4. How much does solar cost? Is a solar system cost-effective for my business?


    The cost of a system depends on a wide variety of factors including the type of roof, system complexity, geographic location, system size and more. The federal government and several state governments offer generous rebates for purchasers of solar systems. A solar system is an investment that guarantees the cost of electricity for years to come. After the system is purchased, the electricity it generates is essentially free. An ecoSolargy certified installer will analyze your specific electric usage, electricity rate schedule and site to determine what option is the best investment and will produce the highest returns.

    5. What are the different financing options for my business to go solar?


    There are several options to finance a commercial solar electric system. We can help advise your company on available options and the financial package that best fits your requirements. Beyond purchasing a system outright, there are other financial solutions which are growing in popularity, such as a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA).
    PPAs are financial vehicles that enable a company to afford a solar system on their property without outlaying capital. In this financial arrangement, a third-party owns, operates and maintains the solar system for a period of years. Customers then buy the power for an agreed-upon set of terms.

    6. How big of a solar electric system do I need?


    The size of your system depends on several factors including your company's regular electricity use, space availability for a system and financial preferences. Solar systems can either offset 100% or only a portion of a building’s energy requirements. In most situations, your system will be connected to the utility grid, so even if your solar electric system doesn’t generate all of your building’s electricity, you can still draw from the utility.

We also warrant power output for 25 years from the date of purchase. ecoSolargy has led the industry pushing the standard solar warranty to progress and cover its products production throughout the entire 25 years.

    10. How does using solar electricity help the environment?

    Does solar help offset climate change?
    Coal-fired electrical power plants are responsible for almost all sulfur dioxide emissions in the U.S. On the other hand, solar electricity produces absolutely no pollution. By using more solar electricity, fewer greenhouse gas-producing power plants need to be built. This is one major step to easing climate change.

    11. What is Net Metering?


    Typically most commercial solar systems are connected to the utility grid through a meter. This meter tracks the amount of electricity your company’s solar electric system produces and the amount of electricity your building consumes. During sunny days (peak production period) your system may produce more power than your building uses, and your electric meter runs backward as you send electricity back to the utility grid. At night, when your system isn’t producing electricity, you will draw energy from the grid. This process is called net metering. At the end of the month, the utility company will only bill your company if it used more electricity than your system produced.

    12. Can I buy solar modules direct from ecoSolargy?


    Please visit http://www.ecosolargy.com/contact-us and we will direct you to your best options for purchasing a complete turnkey ecoSolution.

    13. What are financial options for governmental or non-profit organizations?


    Several states, like California, offer higher cash rebates to non-profit and governmental organizations. Some local and state agencies can apply for a variety of loan options with low or no interest. Finally, a Power Purchase Agreement (third-party financing) is another vehicle for different organizations. Check with your ecoSolargy certified installer to learn more about financing options specifically for your industry or business.

    14. How long does it take to install a solar system?


    Installation time varies greatly, mostly depending on complexity and size of the system.
    Small commercial systems can typically be completed in a few short weeks; however, large-scale installation could require one month or longer.

    15. Will my building have power in the event of a blackout?


    As a safety precaution for electrical workers, your commercial system will lose power during a blackout (unless you install a battery backup system).

    16. How will I monitor the system to ensure peak performance?


    Several monitoring systems are available that can track your system’s energy output and can produce daily, weekly, monthly and annual data. Your ecoSolargy certified installer will work with you to determine which monitoring system best meets your requirements. Check with your installer to see if they offer a monitoring maintenance service. Service agreements can include cleaning and performance monitoring.

    17. Is there maintenance required to keep a solar system operational?


    Occasionally, a solar array should be rinsed off with a hose to clear the dust or debris that blocks sunlight and reduces efficiency. That’s about all that’s required. There are no moving parts to wear out and ecoSolargy solar modules are covered under limited power output warranty for 25 years. In fact, there are solar modules installed 40 years ago that are still producing energy today. Check with your installer to see if they offer a maintenance service. Service agreements can include cleaning and performance monitoring.
