Solar Panel FAQ

Discover the Power of Solar Energy

As a clean, inexpensive, and renewable source of energy, solar energy possesses a limitless source of power for our world. We are fortunate to live in a time where we know more about solar energy and how to properly utilize it more than ever. Because of the advancements in technology and research, solar panels are more efficient, durable, and available to build quality commercial solar systems.

Commercial Solar Arizona is proud to install solar energy solutions for commercial properties throughout Arizona, providing custom, high-quality, turn-key installations. Whether you’re looking to get started with your solar energy journey, you’ve just begun, or you’ve had your solar system for years, everyone can benefit from knowing more about our solar energy solutions.

Read on for answers to some of our most commonly asked questions.

What are the financial benefits of solar energy?

After the initial installation cost, your solar energy system will immediately begin to pay for itself. The exact amount of savings varies between projects and your cost of power; however, with your new solar energy, you’ll see significant savings on operating expenses for your company.

Additionally, solar installations come with large tax incentives for your business. Learn more about these incentives on our blog 7 Things Solar Energy Can Do For Your Business.

What size system does my business need?

Your solar installation company will be able to help you determine the size system best suited for your business. Each job is unique, which is why each solar energy system we install is custom designed for the client. The more roof, parking, and land you have, the larger the system! Keep in mind that some utilities have sizing restrictions; call us today to find out what they are. 

What are my options when it comes to the type of solar panels?

Solar systems come in many different shapes and sizes and serve different purposes. At Commercial Solar Arizona we offer:

  • Rooftop solar systems.
  • Solar carports.
  • Solar garage canopies
  • Solar shade structures.
  • Ground-mount solar systems.
  • And more!

How long does a solar panel last?

Luckily, solar panels are extremely durable and can stand up against harsh weather. While some components may need repairs or replacements over decades, your system as a whole should last at least 25-40 years. This depends on the quality of equipment you purchase upfront.

Do I need to clean my solar panels?

While you don’t necessarily need to clean your solar system, a good clean once in a while will help your system maintain its efficiency. A hose down or rain storm will generally wash the dirt away. 

What are the environmental benefits of solar energy?

By going solar, you are helping reduce the amount of fossil fuels emitted into the atmosphere. This, in turn, reduces air pollution and helps fight climate change, resulting in a healthier population and a happier planet.

Do I need a solar energy storage system?

If your utility does not provide net metering, sometimes it makes sense to install an energy storage system. If the grid were to go down, having stored energy will keep you from losing power and valuable business time. If backup power is important to you, we may recommend installing some form of solar energy storage.

What types of buildings are the best candidates for solar systems?

Most large buildings are compatible with rooftop solar systems. However, this is not your only solar option. Ground-mount and carport solar systems are great alternatives which utilize different parts of your property in order to maximize the solar energy you generate.
