Installation

Your Custom Solution

Efficient and affordable commercial options

01

SOLAR + BATTERY STORAGE

On-site solar is perfect for owner-operated buildings and long-term tenants. We’ll design and install a custom solar system for your energy needs, allowing you to maximize utility savings, lower utility demand charges, and capitalize on NYS rebates and federal tax credits.

02

COMMUNITY SOLAR

Community distributed generation (CDG), or shared solar, is perfect for building and land owners or developers. We’ll manage, fund, and install a large-scale solar array on an underutilized piece of your property, such as an empty rooftop or vacant lot, then sell the energy to off-site subscribers. Collect a site fee as you contribute to the regional economy and support healthier communities.

Solar Panels

Superior Technology

We partner with industry-leading manufacturers using the best panels on the market, enabling us to outfit your business with a technologically advanced solar system. From the day that your system goes live, you can have complete confidence in its performance, reliability, and value for years to come.

Battery Backup

Reduce Demand Charges

Make the most of your solar system with integrated battery storage. The energy stored in your battery system can be used when you need it most, like to reduce peak demand charges or to provide reliable power to your facility in the event of an outage.

Commercial Rooftop + Ground Mount System

The Estée Lauder Companies Inc

EmPower Solar completed a 600 kW roof-mounted system for Estée Lauder Corporation in December 2011. The system utilizes almost two thousand SunPower high-efficiency panels, allowing Estée Lauder to maximize the power output of the system given the amount of roof space on the building.

A Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with California- based Tioga Energy, who is the owner and financier of the system, enabled Estée Lauder to be cash-positive from day one and see significant financial savings over the term of the PPA.

This system proved to be such a significant cost-saving asset for Estée Lauder that they chose to expand their system with the addition of a 1,457 kW ground mount installation and 12 EV charging stations in 2019.

Commercial Rooftop System

Riverhead Building Supply

EmPower Solar completed this 400 kW rooftop installation for Riverhead Building Supply in Calverton, New York. Unique to this project was the racking solution that EmPower Solar used to fasten each solar panel to the standing seam roof of the building.

EmPower Solar mechanically fastened each solar module to the seams of the roof using small clamps, eliminating the need to make any roof penetrations and the system to be installed without the use of rails, providing significant cost savings. While this mounting method requires absolute precision when implemented on such a large installation, EmPower Solar was able to complete the installation on time and on budget, and ultimately develop one of the largest flush-mounted contiguous solar arrays on Long Island.

Commercial Solar Ground Mount System

Sisters of St. Joseph

This 1MW ground-mounted fixed-array system, co-developed and installed with NextEra Energy Resources, LLC is located on approximately five acres owned by Sisters of St. Joseph. In accordance with the Sisters of St. Joseph’s Sustainable Land Ethic Statement, the land parcel, which was designated as degraded woodlands, was chosen to host the array. More than 50 trees were saved from the wooded area and were transplanted elsewhere on the property.

The system is the first on Long Island to take advantage of the new Community Distributed Generation (CDG) tariff. The community solar array provides community solar credits to the Sisters of St. Joseph to offset various electric bills on the property, as well as 63% of their current electricity needs.
