With a large portfolio of solar-powered, commercial clients, Solar Energy Services has a proven track record in providing customized, turnkey solar solutions to a wide variety of businesses, nonprofits, and government clients in the Mid-Atlantic area.  From initial site survey through O & M, SES maintains 100% control over each project – Insuring the most cost-effective, energy-efficient and trouble-free system for each client.

Commercial-scale solar electric (PV) systems are usually grid-tied systems insuring that the Grid (i.e. BGE, PEPCO) remain in place to supply any electric demand not met by the solar portion.  Typically these systems achieve a solar fraction of anywhere between 20% - 100%, meaning the installed solar system would provide anywhere between 20 - 100% of the site's electrical needs.  System size usually depends on a number of factors including available southerly, shade-free roof area, budget and load requirements.  The grid (i.e. PEPCO, BGE etc.) remains in place as a back-up.   SES can size the system appropriately to maximize the economic benefit to the building owner. The important thing to remember is that whether a system is big or small, every unit of renewable energy captured from the Sun, is one unit of traditional energy that will not be purchased and will not be consumed.
