Joule Energy, an integrator of high-efficiency solar systems, is installing a large 28kW solar system on its primary business location. The system illustrates the design of a working installation, serves as a training tool, and significantly reduces the operating cost of Joule’s facilities.
“As a solar contractor, the choice to put solar on our own roof was a no-brainer,” said Ross Reilly, Principal at Joule Energy. “The cost of solar panels is at an all-time low, so businesses that have a long-term view can easily justify the investment.” With Federal Tax Incentives for PV systems at thirty percent and the incorporation of accelerated depreciation, Joule finds that solar is a great option for businesses to manage overhead and increase sustainability.
Joule Energy will use their system as a testing and teaching tool, implementing several different types of inverters, from SMA, Fronious, Aurora, PV Power and Enphase micro-inverters. This range displays the differences in inverter model power efficiencies, allowing new employees and potential customers to familiarize themselves with solar products and make educated choices based on Joule Energy recommendations.
As one of the first B-Corp businesses in Louisiana, Joule Energy has set a standard for improving its environmental impact and social transparency.
