Maximize Sustainability with Solar & Renewable Energy Systems
Energy storage is key to the success of any renewable energy systems in your building, but that’s not all
If you’re considering making the switch to solar/renewable energy, you’re in the right place! Not only can solar/renewable energy significantly reduce your carbon footprint, but it can also save you money on your energy bills in the long run.
With local, state, and federal energy regulations pushing for widespread implementation of renewables, there’s no better time to get started. If you’re ready to make the switch to renewables but you’re not sure where to start, stick with us. We’ll tell you everything you need to know about maximizing your efficiency with solar and renewable energy systems.
What are Solar & Renewables All About?
Solar energy is a renewable source of energy that harnesses the power of the sun to generate electricity. It’s a clean, reliable, and affordable energy source that can power your home or business.
Solar panels are made up of photovoltaic cells, which convert sunlight into direct current (DC) electricity. An inverter then converts the DC electricity into alternating current (AC) electricity, which can be used to power your home or business. Because our team generally deals with on-site applications, we most often utilize solar energy systems. And with an average of 300 sunny days per year, Colorado is ideally suited for solar.
Still, solar isn’t the only renewable energy source. Statewide, 35% of Colorado’s energy generation was thanks to renewables (2021), of which 77% was produced by wind turbines. Solar and hydroelectric power produced 14% and 8%, respectively. All renewable energy sources are a good thing for our environment, but we’ll focus on solar as it’s the most accessible and cost-effective for on-site use.
Solar Energy Applications
Solar panels are commonly mounted on the roofs of buildings—but that’s not the only option. Our team can help you design, install and utilize a variety of solar energy formats:
Reimagine how you utilize your valuable real estate with a design-build solar project from Iconergy. Take parking lots for example—they’re both a necessity and a waste of space. Solar parking canopies can help you maximize energy efficiency while keeping your clients’ vehicles protected from the elements.
Solar with Energy Storage
Of course, you won’t always use energy as it’s captured; you’ll need a place to store it. Storage systems can help you store energy for later use, power vital systems during an emergency, and more. Our team was an early pioneer of energy storage systems—and today, we pride ourselves on providing some of the most advanced energy storage systems available.
Our Approach to Solar
Getting sustainable, low-cost energy is as simple as throwing up a few solar panels, right? Well, not exactly. There’s a common misconception that solar systems are “one size fits all.” In truth, gaining any meaningful benefit from a solar system requires thoughtful design, engineering, and experience. That’s what our team is all about. We design and install custom renewable energy systems to meet the unique needs of our clients. Rather than focusing on the solar/renewable system as an individual unit, we focus on custom integration of that system with the unique attributes of your facility and operations.
Our end goal is to leave you with an optimized renewable energy system that provides power when and where you need it. So, how do we get there? Well, we’ll give you a rundown of our solar energy system process:
Project Walkthrough & Building Analysis
We’ll start by defining your project objectives, your energy needs, and your building’s current energy outlook. Our team will account for your building’s energy consumption, roof size, orientation, and any shading issues that may affect the efficiency of your solar panels.
After we’ve determined your building’s energy metrics, our engineers will design a system that meets your needs. This includes how your solar array will be positioned, how and where energy will be stored, and how that energy will be distributed and controlled.
Once we’ve designed your solar energy system and ensured it will provide the desired results, we’ll take care of the installation process from start to finish. Our team of experienced technicians will ensure that your solar panels are installed optimally to maximize energy efficiency.
Monitoring & Maintenance
Once everything is installed, our team will ensure your new energy system is functioning properly. We’ll fine-tune your solar array, energy storage, and energy control systems when necessary.
Why Are Solar & Renewables Important?
Of course, solar and other renewable energy sources are vital tools for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, improving sustainability, and reducing long-term energy costs. But that’s not all. Installing renewable energy systems in your building is an investment in the future of energy use.
The future of energy use is closer than you might think—already, Denver has passed an innovative new energy ordinance that will require businesses to reduce emissions significantly in the next few years.
Accordingly, 80% of Denver’s energy will be produced by renewables by 2030, and businesses will be expected to utilize energy that is at least 20% renewable. But that doesn’t mean remaining energy compliant is the only benefit of installing renewable energy systems. As we mentioned earlier, renewable energy systems provide a number of benefits.
