Reducing your facility’s reliance on fossil fuels and grid power is a great way to lower operational expenses and ensure continuous power to your building. While improving efficiency is a big part of this process, you can begin by generating your own power on-site. Fortunately, recent advances in renewable technology have made this goal easier than ever to reach.
Even a small commercial solar array can offset your reliance on the grid, saving you money without affecting reliability. Add a wind power generator or a larger solar system, and the benefits will be even greater.

Benefits of On-Site Energy Generation
Solar or wind energy power generation is a sustainable alternative to using fossil fuels. There are even reasons to consider on-site energy generation beyond going green. For commercial properties, solar and wind:
- Lower operating costs and make budgeting more consistent and predictable, as changes to the price of oil will have less impact on your utility costs
- Give you true energy independence, ensuring that you always have power available, even when there’s an interruption to service on the grid
- Create buy-in from customers and other stakeholders around energy conservation initiatives, generating goodwill and positioning your organization as an energy leader
- Potentially qualify you for LEED, Green Globes, and other accreditations as well as tax breaks, rebates, and incentives
