Commercial Steps to Solar Savings

  1. Energy Usage and Goals – First, you must understand your company’s energy usage, measured in kilowatt hours.  Then, use this figure to construct goals for your desired percentage of solar energy production in terms that align with your company’s budget.
  2. The Roof – To fully maximize your business’ investment in a solar system, your company’s roof should:
    • Be relatively south facing or unobstructed flat roof
    • Be unshaded from 9 am to 3 pm.
  3. On-Site Visit – StraightUp Solar will perform a free on-site evaluation and use our unparalleled expertise to answer any of your questions.
  4. Options and Proposal – StraightUp Solar will provide you with both an easy to understand outline of your company’s solar options and a customised proposal for your company’s solar switch. You approve a design and then sign the contract.
