What is on-site solar?


On-site solar enables you to generate your own power by converting solar rays into electricity. Solar power is 100 percent sustainable, reliable and cost-effective, and it can help counteract price volatility and inflation.


How does on-site solar work?


The development and implementation of solar power is helping to make the future brighter for both the environment and for businesses that are able to generate a portion of their energy requirements through the use of on-site solar panels. Direct Energy Business can connect your business to a complete solar energy solution to help you meet your sustainability goals.

Solar power can be used directly on site, stored in a battery system for demand charge management or transferred to the grid to create an additional revenue stream. Solar creates an on-site renewable energy supply. Solar creates an on-site renewable energy supply that reduces reliance on traditional energy sources from the grid.


Limited-time federal, state and local incentives are available to maximize your investment, lower your upfront costs, and boost your return on investment.

"We liked that they're a big organization with a breadth of expertise and a track record in solar, LED lighting, combined heat and power and standby generation. Combinations of solutions of which they could offer 10-year warranties. That gave us a lot of financial confidence and peace of mind. The technology has been expertly installed and is fully operational — and it's cutting our power requirement by 73 percent — that's a great result.”

- John A. Magliocco, President of Arrow Linen Supply Company
