Our approach to solar means each project is tailored for an individual customer. Our subsidiary, Sunora Energy Solutions, provides engineering, procurement and construction expertise, as well as fabrication of custom solar-array panels.
We also leverage partners to achieve the best result and maximum efficiency. Because we are flexible and not tied to any one technology, we design best-case, no-compromise solar solutions that fit customers’ needs, not ours. Above all, we are creative, helping the sun power the places where people work, play and learn every day. Our clean energy solar solutions have been deployed at stadiums, college campuses, school districts, hospitals, municipalities, corporations and retail businesses.
Methods of Deployment
Ground-mounted, fixed trackers
The modules are deployed on a fixed racking system, typically oriented south with an optimal tilt. There are no moving parts and maintenance is very minimal compared to tracking systems.Learn more
Ground-mounted, single-axis trackers
Modules are mounted on a single-axis tracker deployed along a north-south axis, allowing the innovative modules to track the movement of the sun from east to west, day by day.Learn more
Ground-mounted, dual-axis trackers
Modules are mounted on a dual-axis tracker that can track the full movement of the sun’s path to capture the highest amount of direct irradiance throughout the day.Learn more
This solar solution is deployed on a fixed racking system on roofs of various sizes, either with a penetrating mount or ballasted (non-penetrating) solar system.Read more
South and southwest-facing surfaces are most commonly used for optimal energy production.
Elevated/high bay canopy
Whether it’s on a walkway, parking ramp or football stadium, our elevated solar canopies absorb the sun’s energy to bring your business an attractive, innovative solution.Read more
Project sizes vary, but the efficiency is consistent. Elevated canopies are a great way to garner solar power, while not taking up valuable ground space with panels.
Utility solar systems are typically large in scale, ground-mounted and either fixed or employ tracking, and they are located in remote, open areas with abundant sunlight.Read more
Some utility systems can be deployed in urban settings as a collection of multi-site roof systems that feed energy directly into the utility grid.
Crystalline silicon is the material most prevalently used in solar modules today, in both commercial and residential applications.Read more
It is durable, cost-effective, and comparatively efficient at energy conversion – often with a productive lifespan of 25 or more years. PV is different than solar thermal technology which collects heat, such as those used predominantly to feed hot water systems and often employ roof-mounted panels that appear similar to but are different than PV panels.Learn more about PV
Thin-film technology delivers reliability and enables the use of fewer amounts of active solar materials compared to traditional silicon modules.Read more
They typically employ cadmium telluride (CdTe), copper indium gallium selenide (CIGS), or amorphous silicon (A-Si) technologies but typically have less conversion efficiencies compared to crystalline and require more physical space to achieve equivalent production. Thin-film is typically employed where space is not constrained, like a large scale or utility projects.Learn more about PV
Concentrated photovoltaic (CPV)
CPV technology uses optics such as lenses or curved mirrors to concentrate sunlight onto a high-efficiency PV cell to generate electricity.Read more
CPV technology delivers higher conversion efficiencies than non-concentrating PV, requires trackers and cooling systems, and is best suited for geographies with consistently high solar irradiance. Modules may be mounted to automatic sunlight-tracking systems to maximize output. Costs, climate, geography and topography are typical factors.Learn more about PV
Concentrated solar power (CSP)
In sunny areas, CSP technology uses optics such as mirrors or lenses to concentrate sunlight onto specific areas of a heat collector.Read more
This drives a heat engine, usually a steam turbine, that converts the heat energy into electricity, including the ability for energy storage. Parabolic troughs, concentrating linear Fresnel reflectors, dish Stirlings and power towers are four common forms of CSP. These styles are best suited for utility deployments to achieve the most effective solution.Learn more about CSP
