How to get started:
Border Solar can assist you or your organization to analyze project feasibility and different Solar Power Options. To get started, we need would need to collect some basic information about your buildings and/or goals, and simple characteristics of the buildings and/or sites (accessibility to South-Southwest sun exposure, installation type and principal electrical loads). If you have past electricity bills they will also help us, but they are not necessary in your first call.
In El Paso, Texas call us at 915-888-0008 or start by filling our online form.
In Sunland Park, Santa Teresa, Las Cruces, Deming or Alamogordo, NM call us at 575-888-0008 or start by filling our online form.
Border solar design and customize commercial solar photovoltaic system, hedge your organization from the ever increasing energy costs, achieve your environmental goals and help demonstrate your organization's commitment towards the environment by utilizing renewable energy to power your business. Our team has LEED Accredited Professional on staff that knows what needs to be done to maximize the Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy criteria for your LEED Project as well.
Our Commercial Customers can take advantage of valuable Federal Tax Credits, and Accelerated Depreciation, as well as State Deduction and/or credits depending on where your business is located, or we can provide you different options to finance your Solar System either through loans, leases or power purchase agreements, whichever is the most suitable for your needs.
Solar Panels / Modules
Solar Modules are mounted on the roof or around your home to capture the energy of the sun and produce Direct Current (DC) power.
The DC power generated at the modules is then sent to the a piece of equipment called the Inverter, which converts the DC power from the solar panels to Alternate Current (AC) power, just like the power your home receives from the power company through the Utility Grid.
Once the power is converted to AC power, it travels to your electrical service panel or breaker panel box, which is then distributed to the rest of the home to satisfy any electrical loads that the home is using.
When the home is not using electricity the excess power is then sent back to the grid through the electrical meter, causing your meter to spin backwards and credit your account with the utility company.
When your solar system is not producing power at night, then you will use power from the utility company or when your consumption exceeds the power being produced by your solar system, making it very convenient and avoiding the need to have a battery bank.
Net metering is a policy that benefits consumers who own renewable energy systems, such as solar power or other types of alternative energy systems. Net metering means that any excess power that remains after your energy consumption will be credited to your account. Under net metering, a system owner receives retail credit for at least the portion of the electricity they generate.
Commercial Scale Solar Parking Arrays
Sometimes Rooftops are seen as problematic locations for solar PV installations. Typically, they have a smaller unobstructed area than what neighboring parking lots may have. They often have elevator overruns, stair towers, vents, mechanical systems, screening, skylights and waterproof membranes which may interfere with access to the sun and create a smaller window of solar availability causing performance issues. Border Solar is committed to be a strong advocate of solar parking arrays as excellent long term solutions for large scale solar PV deployment.
Border Solar integrated solar parking arrays will provide commercially viable options for solar photovoltaic system scalability and fast project deployment, and address the need for highly visible renewable energy projects that will create market transformation and consumer awareness in the communities where these are installed. They are "Shades with a Purpose".
In addition, Border Solar can integrate your Solar Parking with the necessary Charging Infrastructure for Electric Vehicles.
