BlueSel Commercial Solar for Business

Solar Power for Business

A well-designed solar energy system installed on your property converts the free and unending supply of solar radiation to a money saving electricity supply for your business or organization. Click to see how solar power works for you.

BlueSel Commercial Solar Financial Savings Information

Fundamentals of Savings

A solar energy investment is the first step to replacing some or all of your current electricity purchases. While replacing the ever increasing utility costs, a solar energy system also provides other financial benefits impacting your bottom line. Click to learn more.

BlueSel Commercial Solar Massachusetts Incentives

Incentives & SMART Program

Massachusetts has been a U.S. leader in adopting solar energy at residential and commercial levels. In an effort to stay up to date with market changes and maintain the economic advantages of solar power, new incentives are set beginning in 2018. Click for more details.

Solar Power for Business

We live in an Alternating Current (AC) world. All energy supplied to everything from small homes to the largest manufacturer is distributed along the grid as AC. With solar panels, the photochemical reactions stimulated by sunshine impacting the active materials produce Direct Current (DC) energy. By adding power management components to convert DC to AC, a solar energy system becomes a direct substitute for what you currently buy from the utility. Same AC power, same or even better quality.

Converting Sunshine into AC Power

  1. DC energy from the solar panel array is quickly converted to AC power to match the levels required by your business or organization. A few styles of power inverters complete this step.
  2. This solar-generated AC energy is routed through your existing building electrical distribution network.
  3. Your connection to the power grid (and utility) continues to supply AC energy to your building, such as at night or whenever needed to augment your solar generated power.
  4. Sometimes you may generate more energy that you are using, say during the middle of sunny day. Your utility may offer a “Net Metering” connection which allows you to sell solar energy back through the grid to your electric utility during these peak periods. During the evening or when you consume more than you can produce, the Net Metering system records the energy you buy from the utility.

System Design and Engineering

At BlueSel Commercial Solar, we are dedicated to designing the best solutions that deliver the business results you are looking for. This means solar systems that provide the highest energy yields and the best financial returns. In many instances installing a well-designed solar system on your existing rooftop will meet the needs. However, many rooftops are not ideally situated to maximize the power production of the system because of shade or building orientation. And they may not provide adequate space for the size and capacity of the system that meets your needs. We offer Unique Solutions and alternative designs in those cases.

Solar Power with Battery Storage

One of the more exciting recent developments in solar energy systems technology is the rapid progress being made in commercial-scale battery storage. Solar systems with batteries combine large storage capacity and integrated control software to manage the battery array in real time. These capabilities allow you to store large amounts of peak sunlight-hour electricity and reduce your energy costs by optimizing how and when energy is supplied from the utility grid.

Coupling energy storage with batteries to a standard solar energy system requires the addition of extra power management components.

The Added Dimension

  1. The solar arrays and the interconnection between the power grid and the facility do not change when adding battery storage to a system. Net metering components and rules remain the same, too.
  2. Power Mangement — Additional hardware is added. Just as in a stand alone solar energy system, an Inverter function converts the solar  DC   power to AC  power. The power management components must also perform a Charge Controller function, maintaining battery charge levels. BlueSel offers a range of fixed and programmable power management systems that allow a facility manager the desired flexibility to best manage the stored energy in the batteries.
  3. Batteries —  Modular, rack mounted and cabinet enclosed battery systems are added at capacities to meet your needs. Whether simply shaving daily energy usage peaks or offsetting more energy each year, there is an energy capacity design to meet every circumstance.

More About BlueSel Solar

BlueSel Commercial Solar, Inc. is a locally owned solar energy system installation company with offices in Woburn and Sandwich, Massachusetts. It is co-owned by Wally Cole of Arlington, MA and Michael Tanghe of Hyannis, MA. Mike and Wally are also co-founders of BlueSel Home Solar Inc. Together, these two companies have installed over 550 solar installations with over 5.5 megawatts of solar energy system capacity.

BlueSel Solar was the first SunPower® Master Dealer in Massachusetts. The SunPower Master Dealer program is a “by invitation only”. Out of the 1,200 SunPower dealers around the world, only 21 have been invited to become Master Dealers. SunPower awards the title of Master for outstanding customer service and providing first-class installations.

Our construction process begins with a pre-construction planning meeting led by our EPC project manager and involving your on-site project representative and any other subcontractors who will manage on-site work. This meeting educates everyone on the installation and the construction steps in the process. In our experience, this team is able to develop the best plan to efficiently receive and locate materials and work in the construction site with the lowest impact to your business operations. It also establishes the personal connections to quickly solve problems and make optimal decision during the construction process.

For all of our work, we provide a 5 year workmanship warranty and act as your one-stop contact for the equipment warranties for your installed system. Our construction phase completes with documentation and training on the operation of the system, the maintenance schedule, and contact information for issue resolution. We also offer monitoring services that can identify system performance issues and keep your system running at optimal productive capacity.

Our project manager can acquire all the equipment and materials to implement the design and would work with you to fully manage the logistics of delivering and storing them onsite to minimize any disruption to your normal business operations.

Another important aspect of procurement is our proven ability to manage all the required permits for construction as well as all the required paperwork and interactions with the local utility for grid-connection authorization and PTO (permission to operate). We can also manage the application forms and processes for any incentive programs and credits the system is eligible for. Simply put – our system design includes everything needed to build your system, meet all requirements AND take advantage of all the incentives and credits you are due.

Our engineering begins with the first conversation to understand your electricity requirements, history and project goals. We survey the site and evaluate the total solar power potential and work with you to review the options for all potential solar installations – including the roofs of existing buildings as well as the possible options for Solar Systems over parking areas and unshaded land that might be used for ground-mount systems.

The cost, financing, payback period, and system lifetime ROI are reviewed for each option and the quality equipment included in our designs is always selected meet your budget and optimize the return on your financial investment.

Our engineering plans are fully certified by our engineering partner company – ARC DESIGN – to meet all structural and electrical requirements and qualify fully for current federal and state incentive programs.
