TECHNICAL DETAILS

Commercial solar energy systems are extremely varied in their size, type, and integration, and require an experienced commercial installer, but for years the team of technicians and electricians at Smucker’s Energy has been designing and implementing structural solutions that are perfectly catered to accommodate whatever your business needs. We’ll design clean and simple hookups that take into account any special equipment or processes your business has, and we consult with the necessary departments to provide you with the best options for system placement and size. Roof mount systems can accommodate any type of roof, and solar panels only create an additional 3 pounds per square foot—making covering the top of your facility with panels a great option. If your situation doesn’t support this solution, we can engineer a ground or pole mount system that utilizes optimal location and sunlight to produce as much power as possible for your company.

More complex commercial systems require an understanding of technical details beyond a simple residential installation, and Smucker’s has a large portfolio of commercial clients and testimonials that support our promise to deliver to you the best solar solution available, regardless of size. We’re rich with experience in designing fully engineered stamped drawings, applying for and acquiring all types of permits, and registering with countless utilities and handling their paperwork in multiple states.

One area where we strive to help you achieve the most productive system possible is through component quality. We only use tried and tested materials that give you years of maintenance-free production and maximum savings, including high-quality SolarWorld solar panels, the first panels sold with a 25-year production warranty. SolarWorld manufactures panels in both Germany and the United States, and they’ve been a leader in solar panel manufacturing for over forty years. For these reasons, Smucker’s uses primarily SolarWorld panels in our systems. Our customers are our top priority, and our years in the marketplace have made us advocates for investing in quality. High-performance panels always pay dividends down the road beyond going the cheapest route, since they generate more power more efficiently for a longer period of time.

Commercial systems come in all shapes and sizes, especially when it comes to roof systems. Fortunately, there are many mounting options for roof solar systems, covering everything from standing-seam roof attachment options to ballasted system mounts, which are ideal for large, flat roofs and require no penetration to attach the racking or modules. Smucker’s can work with you to determine the best option for your system based on your roof type and other building factors.

Additionally, we provide monitoring solutions that ensure you’re getting the most out of your system—specific products allow you to track energy production on a panel-by-panel basis. This provides you with up-to-the-minute analysis on the performance of your system, and it can provide unique and creative PR opportunities—such as lobby monitors or website links showing solar production (for example, SolarWorld’s Sunmodules panels are the first green-certified solar panels by the National Green Building Standard… a great focal point for buildings focusing on green operation and production). More importantly, though, it keeps you fully informed of system performance so that in the unlikely event that something goes wrong, it can be quickly identified and resolved to ensure minimal production loss. This is very important on commercial systems with large panel strings—we realize that commercial solar is an investment, and we’re committed to helping you see and verify that your system is delivering the savings your business needs.
