How does solar energy work for your business?
Here is a simple diagram that shows how you can generate your own clean and more affordable energy from sunlight using UnitedSolar systems for your business.
The solar panels are made up of photovoltaic (PV) cells, which convert sunlight into direct current (DC) electricity.
It's a device that converts direct current (DC) electricity, which is what a solar panel generates, to alternating current (AC) electricity, which the electrical grid uses.

The AC electricity out from your inverter is then sent to your house’s electrical panel where it in turn powers all that is connected to it, such as lights, appliances, etc.
The utility meter measures your energy use. You can be sure that this will go down considerably once your system is in place. In some instances, the meter will actually go backwards when your system produces excess energy and it goes to the grid.
Your business is still connected to the grid so when the sun goes down at night you’ll still be powered. Don’t worry though, the cost is offset by any excess solar energy you put into the grid during the day via the *Net Metering agreement.

Why Solar Panel?
The uptake of commercial solar panels has seen a steady rise in recent years here in the USA, and with good reason. By their nature, most businesses are active primarily during the day, when solar panels will produce the most energy. This is amongst the most pivotal reasons that they can save your business so much money, with costs savings often running into the hundreds or even into the thousands.
Particularly energy-intensive industries (such as manufacturing) often see the most considerable gains, but the many advantages that commercial solar panels have to offer can be applied across a huge number of sectors, meaning there’s almost no business or organization which doesn’t stand to benefit.
The Benefits Of Commercial Solar Panels For Businesses
There’s no shortage of advantages for businesses when it comes to solar panels. At a glance, the main benefits such as considerable cost savings, financial stability, energy security/flexibility, a greatly reduced carbon footprint, improved public perception of your business through helping the environment.
