The Economics of Small Commercial Solar Projects

Posted by AllEarth Renewables on February 28, 2017

When it comes to small commercial solar development, it’s critical to know the economics on any system, and to be able to calculate both the real costs of the project, and the savings the project can provide. Many of the drivers of a small commercial project are similar to those in the residential market, just at a larger size and scale, since you’re dealing with businesses instead of homeowners.

The Value of Dual-Axis Trackers in Small Commercial Solar

Posted by AllEarth Renewables on July 19, 2016

One of the best ways to get the most bang for your buck in a small commercial solar project is reframing the way you think about project value and moving beyond the traditional dollar per watt measures. Although a fixed-mount system might have a lower cost per watt, dual-axis trackers provide a higher production capacity, are more versatile when it comes to siting and land usage, and ultimately cost less when it comes measuring dollar per kilowatt-hour, creating a much better overall value for the project.

Maximizing Power Production with Dual-Axis Solar Trackers

Posted by AllEarth Renewables on July 7, 2016

We’ve already explored the importance of maximizing power production in small commercial projects: without a clear understanding of how the project will perform (and pay for itself), you’ll never be able to get a project off the ground. Moving beyond the dollar-per-watt to focus on the project’s dollar-per-kilowatt-hour value is a great way to ensure that your project will create a long-term return on investment. The higher the production capacity of your system, the higher your return will be.

Solar System Design Options

Posted by AllEarth Renewables on June 3, 2016


Choosing the right solar system for your customer can feel like a daunting process, so to simplify the process, focus on the essentials. There are several basic components to consider in solar system design: the solar panels, the inverter, and the mounting and racking systems. Each of these comes with a range of options to choose from, but understanding the differences between them will ensure that you select the right system to meet your customer's energy needs.

Maximizing Power Production in Small Commercial Solar Projects

Posted by AllEarth Renewables on May 12, 2016

-_Gary_Hall-_15-125-74_1.jpgWhen it comes to small commercial solar, return on investment is one of the key measures of a project's success. One of the best ways to get the most bang for your buck and meet your bottom line is reframing the way you think about the products and techniques used, and moving beyond the traditional dollar per watt measures. Thinking about production capacity, and your dollar per kilowatt-hour, will yield a much better picture of how your project will fare.
