Tallahassee Solar Installers

Solar Energy in Tallahassee has amazing potential. The above photo was created by to show the production of a 1MW solar energy plant in the Tallahassee area. Corporate Sales Advice is promoting solar energy in North Florida and it wants to give readers an accurate view of what can be accomplished in the realm of energy efficiency.

This photo is of PV Watts which is a quick and easy tool created by NREL to show solar energy production throughout the US. Tallahassee Solar Energy has created a simple video on the PV Watts output and how you interpret the data. You can see the video by clicking here.

Energy efficient projects are important to Corporate America and solar energy in general is growing. Did you know that there are almost twice as many professionals working in the solar energy  sectors as are working in coal production? No kidding it’s 120K working in solar to about 70K working in coal.

My advice if you have business in the N. Florida area is to call out a solar installer from Tallahassee to at least see what can be done at your corporate facility. I can’t hurt to check on pricing, sizes, and the amount of energy you need to offset.

Solar Energy = Savings

We would assume by now that your business has done just about everything it can to lower its electrical costs. Considering electric bills are rising at around 6% a year you probably need to do something right now.

By now your plant manager has probably replaced the warehouse lighting to new efficient bulbs or at least looking at the new LED lighting options. They have probably put the office lights on a timer, put remote light sensors in for individual offices, powered down all the computers during non working hours. You have probably turned up the thermostat in the summer and lowered it to 68 in the winter. Sealed up all drafts in the building and are hammering your local utility energy representative to manage your electric rate plan more effectively.

In the solar energy world we call this “Low Hanging Fruit.” All of the above are the energy efficiency items that should be done, need to be done if you are going to lower your energy costs. What’s Next?

Next is Solar Energy!

Most of the energy efficiency projects listed above have a very quick payoff. That’s why your plant manager focused on them first. Each of the above projects has a marginal effect on your energy bill. As an example your lighting retrofit saves about 30% of energy on every light you convert but maybe you don’t have enough lights to make a big dent in the bill or you didn’t notice the savings. You know it works, its just not noticeable.

Solar Energy is one of those products you can purchase that allows you to DECIDE how much energy you want to offset. Basically the more panels you put on your roof or into the ground next to your factory the more energy you offset. To put it in perspective in the Tallahassee, Fl area a 1MW solar plant takes only about 6 acres yet it will offset 1,314,609 KWH AC of energy per year – that is 1,314MWH/yr!

I’m not sure if you could replace enough lights to equal that amount.

Corporate Sales Advice has been studying solar energy in the North Floridia area, specifically Tallahassee, Fl. We just want to point out that YES solar energy works in Tallahassee but actually New Jersey & New York have more solar energy installed than FL. The point is solar works everywhere in the United States!
