When it comes to commercial applications like corporate offices and manufacturing plants, the beauty of solar is that most energy use occurs during the day. Large commercial plants can benefit from solar power without needing to buy a storage solution to cover night time energy usage. When a factory’s energy use is at its peak, a solar system will equivalently be at peak production whereas at night, the facility requires little energy while the solar system is dormant.

Furthermore, larger commercial solar systems are an even better deal in terms of long term savings because of the economies of scale dynamic with solar power. EnergySage Solar Marketplace pricing data as well as other third party data providers are in consensus that the cost per watt a consumer will pay for a solar system will decrease as the system size increases.
