Commercial Solar Engineering

Photovoltaic power on time, and within budget

Your commercial solar or utility-scale solar project needs experienced hands. With more than 10 years experience in completing PV design projects in operation, we deliver solar power energy to the grid, guided by accurate technical decisions and the most current technical information available.

Our diverse background and broad history with photovoltaic systems is the foundation from which we work to deliver your photovoltaic project. Experience is everything for an engineer, and experience is what sets J L Electrics apart. We have the hard technical skills which are important to deliver solutions, and we understand that soft skills such as constant communication, teamwork, respect, and integrity keep a project moving forward on time and within budget.

You’ll find our construction plans present design and installation details in a clear, concise format. The sequential drawing layers are a visual instruction manual—enabling you to secure customer approvals, obtain permits, and manage construction teams with maximum efficiency.

Choose a project that meets your needs:

When designing and installing a pv array, you must consider financial objectives, desired aesthetics, long-term reliability, and site accessibility and security.

The four basic types of commercial solar electric systems include:

Solar Carports:  

  • Protects cars from heat gain and creates a pleasant environment.
  •  Adds an environmental benefit to land that is already developed and paved.
  •  Provides an alternative for areas where open land or roof spaces are unavailable.

Standing Seam Rooftop Mounting System:

  • Does not require roof penetrations.
  •  Durable and long-lasting.
  •  Aesthetically pleasing.

Membrane Rooftop PV System:

  • Provides a secure array support.
  •  Reduces UV degradation of the roof membrane.
  •  Allows natural water drainage.

Ground Mounted System:

  • Can be oriented to true north and located where there is minimal shading.
  •  Creates a publicly visible display of your commitment to renewable energy.
  •  Exploits unused ground space for cost savings.

How we ensure your project succeeds:  

1. Customer Service

Whether or not you speak “Engineer”, we guide you through our design process with clear explanations and open communication. Excellent project management and constant communication are the essential ingredients that have driven our growth as a company.

2. The Bigger Picture

We identify the right solution for your commercial solar needs. With any site, the array location, orientation, equipment selection, utility rate structures, financial incentives, and timing all have a significant impact on your solar power system’s financial return. It starts with defining a site-specific solution by a well rounded, technically proficient team.

We provide:

  • Financial analyses
  • Energy production studies
  • Preliminary solar array layouts
  • Utility interconnection studies and agreements
  • Resource Assessment

We assess:

  • Solar array shading and site optimization
  • Structural adequacy and roof life
  • Civil and geotechnical
  •  design implications
  • Electrical interconnection strategy
  • Construction logistics

We deliver:

  • Complete system design and engineering
  • Turnkey system installations
  • Operations and maintenance

3. Logistics

Your commercial solar power system is intended to produce energy and enhance your business or institution. Your site’s construction logistics are researched during the design process and, with a careful eye to planning, we deliver a quality installation with minimal disruption to your business activities.

4. Project Management

Each project is assigned to a Manager, who serves as the key point of contact with you.Our project managers have many years of technical training and direct experience working with customers on renewable energy projects. Your project will be in experienced and technically proficient hands.

5. Experts at Work

Our business was founded with a focus on delivering technical capabilities to add solar power to our energy mix. We are neither bankers nor salespeople – but we thoroughly understand the financial characteristics of PV solar projects. We are engineers who deliver technically sound solutions with an eye towards customer service and reality.

6. Follow Through

We deliver on our commitments to design, permit, construct, startup, operate and maintain solar power systems.  Whether you are looking for turnkey solar services, in our hands from beginning to end, or customized engineering support, we deliver.

7. Respect and Integrity

Our core values of respect and integrity maintain a progressive and positive atmosphere at J L Electrics.

We understand that hard technical skills are important to deliver solutions, but the soft skills such as constant communication, teamwork, respect and integrity keep a project moving forward on time, and within budget.
