In a nutshell, we've become the smartest solar company in the industry. All to make solar power a viable, affordable option for businesses like yours.
It just takes one phone call to get started.
Solar power generated through solar photovoltaic systems is undoubtedly an economical energy choice, but solar power is also a smart choice for the environment. Many companies are seeking to go green and reduce their carbon footprint by considering solar energy today.
It's not just that solar power is renewable or that it can be produced without our dependence on utility grids. Companies that choose solar power not only decrease the draw on the grid; they can also put energy back on the grid by producing more power than they use. And a more efficient power grid reduces other environmentally harmful activities, such as burning coal for power and strip mining to obtain coal.
Contact Solar Planet for more information about the benefits of solar power.
1. Solar panels capture the sun's energy.
Solar Planet finances and installs solar photovoltaic systems for our customers. These systems rely on solar panels mounted on a roof to capture the sun's energy and transform it into electricity that can be used to power your business.
2. Inverters convert sunlight into usable electricity.
Every solar photovoltaic system we install includes an inverter. The inverter turns the energy captured by the solar panels into a form of electricity your business can use, called alternating current, or AC electricity.
3. Solar power decreases your pull on the energy grid.
The electricty your solar photovoltaic system generates offsets the amount of electricity your business draws from your utility provider's grid, benifiting the environment and decreasing your electricity bill.
4. Solar photovoltaic systems produce more energy when you need it.
Because solar photovoltaic systems draw energy from the sun, they produce more electricity during the summer months - the same time your business uses more electricity to power air conditioning systems. This helps offset higher electric bills in the summer months.
5. Your utility company could start paying you!
Sometimes, your solar photovoltaic system will produce more electricity than your business uses. This surplus power filters back into the grid, causing your energy meter to spin backwards. Your utility company "buys" this power from you by crediting your electric bill.

Solar power generated through solar photovoltaic systems is undoubtedly an economical energy choice, but solar power is also a smart choice for the environment. Many companies are seeking to go green and reduce their carbon footprints by considering solar energy today.
It's not just that solar power is renewable or that it can be produced without taxing other natural resources or creating emissions. Solar power also lessens our dependence on utility grids. Companies that choose solar power not only decrease the draw on the grid; they can also put energy back on the grid by producing more power than they use. And a more efficient power grid reduces other environmentally harmful activites, such as buring coal for power and strip mining to obtain coal.
Solar Planet's solar experts have invested the time and effort to become authorities on solar power. We know how to quickly and successfully obtain grants. How to carefully assess your site and to determine the viability of a solar system and design the appropriate sized system for your property. And how to oversee installation to ensure every aspect of the process is a success. Our due diligence translates into a simplified, worry- and hassle-free solar process for you.
When you go solar with Solar Planet, we use roof or your land for a ground mount solar system. You keep the power generated by the system, which will dramatically reduce your electric bill. While the amount you save depends on the size of your system and your monthly energy consumption, on average, a Solar Planet solar photovoltaic system can generate seven to nine years of free, earth-friendly power for your business over the life of the system.
Solar Planet has spent the time to research, test and analyze solar panels and their related equipment. We ensure that you will receive the very best and most productive materials available on the market today.
We save you the time and frustration involved in securing grants for your system, obtaining zoning and building permits, scheduling installations, and handling ongoing maintenance. You simply sit back and save.
All you need is an Internet connection to monitor how much energy your solar system produces each month. You’ll know at a glance how much the system is benefiting your bottom line. And Mother Earth.
Solar photovoltaic systems produce more energy in the summer months—the same months businesses use more energy for air conditioning. Solar power helps offset spikes in your energy bills by producing more power when you need it most.
Not all sites are suited to solar photovoltaic systems. The following criteria will help you determine if your business is eligible for a system from Solar Planet. You can also contact Solar Planet for additional information.
If you do not meet our eligibility requirements, Solar Planet may be able to advise you on other resources available for going solar.
Q. If I install a solar power system, will that protect my business from power failures?
A. While solar power has countless advantages, preventing power outages isn't one of them. Our solar photovoltaic systems are part of the utility grid. When the utility company experiances an outage, we need to cease energy production by shutting down your system's inverter in order to protect the utility workers servicing the grid.
Q. Will installing a solar power system cause my roof to leak?
A. No. Solar Planet conducts a complete site assessment prior to installing any solar photovoltaic system. The assessment includes determining your roof's ability to support the racking system without causing any structural damage. If your roof is unable to support the system, we will not install it. A ground mount solar photovoltaic system is an option for sites without adequate roof space.
Q. What if my roof isn't big enough to support solar panels?
A. Solar Planet completes an in-depth site inspection before installing solar photovoltaic systems. If your roof cannot support the system, a ground mount option may work on your site. With ground mount systems, we install the solar panels at an angle on the ground. These systems work exactly the same as roof mounted solar panels.
Q. Is there a warranty on the solar system?
A. The solar panels in our solar photovoltaic systems are typically under warranty for 25 to 30 years. Solar Planet handles the process of obtaining and providing the warranty information to you.
Q. How long does the process of going solar take?
A. When you work with Solar Planet, we have the expertise and experience to efficiently handle every step of the process. The installation itself only takes about a week. All told, it takes approximately eight weeks from the time you sign on the dotted line to the time you are generating solar power and saving on your energy bill.
Q. Will the installation process disrupt my business?
A. It shouldn't at all. We work with certified, licensed, and bonded professional installers who are mindful that you are operating a business. Since the installers work primarily on the roof, they should not impact staff, visitors, and customers coming and going from your office. The entire installation process only takes about a week.
Q. Why is the government incentivizing solar power systems?
A. The state and federal government advocates for solar photovoltaic solutions, such as the ones Solar Planet installs for our customers. Solar power is a renewable, non-polluting source of energy that delivers tremendous benefits for the environment and can help make our country less dependent on other sources of energy. However, the costs of installing solar photovoltaic systems can be staggering. The state and federal government help offset these costs through a variety of financial incentive programs.
Q. Can Solar Planet provide a solar power system for my home?
A. Not at this time. Solar Planet currently specializes in solar photovoltaic systems for businesses and commercial properties and we do not service residential customers.
Q. How do I know if my site can support a solar system?
A. A number of criteria help determine whether or not your site can support a solar photovoltaic system from Solar Planet, including your industry, your utility provider, and the available roof or ground space on your site. See our eligibility requirements or contact Solar Power for more information.
