What is an Industrial Solar Power System?
Industrial solar power systems primarily provide electricity to remote areas where conventional power is too costly or difficult to reach. The systems can be skid mounted, roof mounted, pole mounted, trailer mounted, or assembled with industrial quality walk-in shelters.
Often, industrial solar applications are designed with minimal user maintenance and impressive reliability in mind. They are often located in extremely harsh environmental conditions where ordinary grid-based electrical power would not be available, such as extreme desert heat, waterfront areas, mountain tops, and areas with high humidity, high wind and high dust conditions.
Where electricity load is high, industrial solar power can prove cost effective when it is configured as a hybrid electric power system, joining photovoltaic solar power systems with small fuel or natural gas generators.
Industrial Solar Panels are large arrays of photovoltaic collectors most often mounted on huge industrial rooftops that would normally be wasted space. Commercial rooftops are rarely shaded and the degradation of roofing materials is increased by exposure to UV rays from the sun. Large arrays of industrial solar panels not only create valuable electricity, but also reduce the affects of UV rays on roofing materials.
In addition to reclaiming rooftops, industrial solar panels are being used to develop commercial solar parks specifically to provide power to the grid.
Go Solar Green NY helps industry and government in lowering operating costs in locations where utility power is not available, with uninterruptible power supplies and systems. Our solutions will lower your installation and maintenance costs while providing reliable power where you need it.

- Some industrial systems can be mounted on trucks, trailers or skids, so you can take them anywhere you need power, fast, even on a roof or the top of a mountain!
Smaller industrial systems are typically used for:
- Environmental remediation
- Mid-size telecommunication relays
- Data acquisition
- RFID sensors
- Cathodic protection
- Weather monitoring
- Tower obstruction LED lighting
- Disaster relief
- Emergency communications
- Rural habitation
Larger industrial solar systems are typically used for:
- Wireless communication sites
- Microwave repeaters
- Military communications
- Global positioning
- Environmental remediation
- Community power
Solar Power for Your Business or Public Agency Building
Grid tie solar electric systems for commercial businesses and government agencies are one of the fastest growing segments of the solar market worldwide. With net metering programs now approved in most of the U.S. states, thousands of businesses, schools and government agencies are now experiencing the benefits of solar electricity.
With a 30% Federal tax credit for solar power grid tie systems through 2017, and a new option for a 30 % Federal Rebate through 2011, now is the time to invest in a solar power system for your facility. With solar panel warranties of 25 years, solar arrays will stabilize your power costs over that period. Plus, they generate the electricity during peak load times, often offsetting higher tier utility rates, enhancing the system's payback time.
Solar Energy systems can earn you LEED Certification Points!
Go Solar Green NY grid tie commercial solar electric energy systems can contribute 1-3 points for LEED Certification Category EAc2. LEED certifications were designed to promote a common standard for building design and construction measures that contribute to the energy efficiency and environmental compatibility of a building. The U.S. Green Building Council, a US based non-profit organization with experts across the country in the building industry, promotes buildings that are environmentally responsible, profitable and healthy places to live and work. The LEED certification rating system has become a green building standard, allowing sustainable buildings to be compared and rated.
