The Right Size for Your Needs

Every business is different, that’s why we design customized systems to meet you and your tenant’s needs.

We will not over- or undersell you! Meeting with one of our solar energy consultants will help you determine if your commercial property is right for solar, and how much energy production your business will need.

Escape Instant Demand

Are you looking for ways to cut costs for your business or commercial property? The instant demand charges assessed by the power company limits your ability to lower your electric bill.

What is Instant Demand?

Instead of billing your business’ actual energy consumption, energy companies bill you based on your peak demand—the 60 seconds of the day when you use the most energy.

Typically this peak demand comes from the first moments of your workday when all of the machines in your property are turned on—computers, HVAC, lights, other machines, etc.

This means no matter how good your employees get at turning off the lights in the break room, it won’t lower your bill.

Can solar power lower your commercial electric bill?

Solar can solve the instant demand pricing problem! If your peak demand if under 50 kw/min (Black Hills) or 25 kw/min (San Isabel,) the power your solar panels produce will offset your peak energy consumption.

But what happens if your peak demand is still more than the cutoff?

Steel City Solar can set up systems to stagger the startup sequence of your HVAC, effectively spreading out that initial energy consumption over several minutes and preventing the 60-second peak demand.

Health Care Provider Aims for Net Zero

Steel City Solar helps Pueblo Community Health Center reduce energy use by half.

Pueblo Community Health Center’s new East Side Clinic had an ambitious goal: build a zero-energy building to serve its 24,000 patients. Working together with PCHC’s board, architects, and more, Steel City Solar designed and installed more than ** solar panels on both the clinic’s roof and carports to generate 76,000 kWh per year. Coupled with the building’s efficient design and energy-saving appliances and windows, the new building is set to save more than $1 in energy costs over the next 25 years.
