What to Look for in a Solar Specialist

Posted by AllEarth Renewables on March 29, 2017

Once you've made the decision to go solar, your first step should be finding a local dealer/installer to help you achieve your renewable energy goals. This might be easier said than done: with the solar market getting more competitive, you may have quite a few companies to choose from.

Choosing the right solar company to work with can seem like a challenge—you need an installer who can give you an understanding of how different solar systems work, help you make an informed decision, and ensure that you understand the installation process so you don't encounter any surprises along the way. If you're starting out on your solar journey but aren't sure what to look for in a solar specialist, read on for the top characteristics to keep in mind.

The Right Way to Measure the Value of a Solar System

Posted by AllEarth Renewables on July 27, 2016

When considering any investment in solar it is critical to look beyond the simple math of the installed cost of the system. In business, an investment is assessed not on the upfront capital expenditure but rather on the longer-term return on investment. In a similar fashion, when assessing the value of a solar installation, it is critical to look beyond the upfront installed cost and focus on the long-term energy production.

The Value of Dual-Axis Trackers in Small Commercial Solar

Posted by AllEarth Renewables on July 13, 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.
