As a responsible business owner, you can help protect the environment now and for future generations by producing your own clean solar energy. Solar energy helps decrease the amount of fossil fuels we utilize, thereby decreasing pollutants causing global warming. Existing sources of energy are becoming increasingly expensive as they are being depleted, but solar is a plentiful, reliable and renewable energy source. Adding a solar power generating system to your enterprise is a responsible business decision that can make you feel good about benefiting the environment and reducing your electricity & fuel cost.

Solar Panel Rooftop & Ground Mounts

Solar-Forest is able to offer affordable and high quality solar panel roof mounts. Our expert solar consultants help you carefully factor tructural and building code issues to provide the right solar panel roof mount solution to home and building from the buyers in the world.
The ideal orientation a solar panel roof mount installation is facing south ( in northern continents ) where optimum energy production will be achieved.
If your roof faces east or west your overall energy production will typically be 10 to 25% lower compared to a south-facing. On sloped roofs, the rack supporting the solar array is usually flush-mounted for aesthetic, cost and structural reasons. The annual energy production is also dependent on the tilt angle of the array (and roof).

What is a Solar Carport?

A solar carport is a system of solar canopies which covers parking areas for residential, commercial and industrial use. Polar Racking offers carport solutions that can shield entire commercial parking lots or for very small sections within a parking lot. Before long, solar carports will be present in most, if not every, parking lot.
By installing a solar carport, owners have the benefit of generating power in an easily accessible, pre-owned area to power their existing operations or to produce additional revenue by selling power back into the grid. Solar carports offer the additional advantage of protecting cars from outdoor elements, which can be especially appealing to car dealerships. Learn more about solar carport benefits.
