Solar fields and solar panel adorned rooftops are an increasingly common sight throughout cities and rural areas.
While residential use of solar power has grown over the past few decades, it is the commercial use of solar power that has largely propelled the growth of the solar industry to create a significant presence among alternative energies. Solar power has been adapted to many key commercial sectors, including those that provide the most basic human necessities—food and water. United Solar works with all sectors with scalable, renewable solar power systems that can be finely tuned and customized to serve the unique needs of your industry.
Solar Power As an Adaptable Resource
One of the most distinctive benefits of solar power is the ability to scale solar power systems to any size or scope. Solar power systems may have just a few rooftop panels to supplement grid-sourced power, or they may be comprised of multi-acre solar fields capable of providing enough energy to power farms and manufacturing facilities. On any scale, solar power systems provide a sustainable, renewable source of energy, often at a dramatically reduced cost compared to local utilities.
Solar Energy in the Real World
There are many incentives to encourage government and commercial facilities to convert to solar power. In addition to the potential for millions of dollars in lifetime savings, solar-powered facilities can look forward to an elevated reputation by making a commitment to sustainability and cleaner energy.
More and more schools are choosing to convert to solar power, as parking lots, sports fields, and rooftops provide excellent opportunities for solar panel installation. Colleges and school districts across the country have chosen to convert to solar, thereby reducing energy costs to allocate more funds to resources that go directly to students and staff.
Sustainable food production is a big concern today, and this sustainability must be cost-effective to keep the costs of food down for consumers. Agricultural centers have notoriously high energy needs to operate irrigation and pump equipment, but they can be supplemented with solar power. Because farms are already situated to take advantage of sunlight, the infrastructure of solar panels is easy to integrate for effective energy production.
As the population grows, it is essential to produce the goods individuals need while reducing the resources used to make them. Solar-powered manufacturing can ensure that production remains sustainable for future generations.
Cities and smaller municipalities are taking advantage of solar energy without tapping into their local budgets by seeking partnerships with solar providers. These partnerships allow solar conversion with no upfront costs, followed by payment for energy produced by their solar power systems, which comes at a fraction of the cost of electricity from the local grid.
Water is a precious resource, and it requires a more sustainable approach. Waste water recycling plays a significant role, but waste water facilities have high energy demands. Pairing waste water recycling with solar energy is a natural choice that can create a brighter future for the availability of clean water in all communities.
In the digital age, more tech-savvy companies are creating sustainable, self-contained campuses that provide their own energy. Solar power is a common feature of corporate campuses following the lead of eBay, Google, and other tech giants.
