Let the Sun Shine

Moving toward energy independence with solar power is now easier than ever! With the explosive growth of solar photovoltaics (PV) over the last decade, the cost to install solar energy systems has dropped by more than 73% and ROI payback periods are averaging just three to five years.

Today’s smart businesses are including solar PV technology as part of their comprehensive energy management strategy to reduce monthly utility expenses for twenty years or more.

Velo Solar has formed a joint venture with Indigo Energy to offer Velo’s solar power expertise to Indigo’s established distribution system for a range of energy products. Velo offers solar installation, engineering and other energy management tools that commercial operations can use to reduce their electricity costs. Velo President Mark Bell said partnering with Indigo for marketing these services is a natural fit.

How Solar Works

Business owners are choosing to invest in solar energy for a variety of reasons, which includes reducing operating costs. Solar installations are at an all-time high, while solar technology has proven to be extremely reliable and affordable.

When solar panels are installed at your facility or building, the photovoltaic cells (PV) that make up the panels convert sunlight into direct current (DC) electricity throughout the day. From there, an inverter converts the DC electricity generated by the solar panels into alternating current (AC) electricity, which is what your business utilizes. The AC electricity is then sent from the inverter to your electrical panel, the “breaker box,” to power your lights and appliances with solar energy.

Solar panels capture and convert the sun’s energy into direct current (DC) electrical energy.

An inverter changes the DC electrical energy into alternating current (AC) electrical energy.

The AC power travels from the inverter to the panel board for use in your facility.

The electricity meter records the surplus energy as well as the additional energy required to power your facility.

Any surplus solar electricity you generate is sold back to your utility provider.
