Why make the energy shift? You'll improve your bottom line today and well into the future. When generating electricity onsite, what your neighbor has may not be the best for your business. Choosing the right technology mix and sizes are critical.
Your technology mix will depend on how you use energy and whether you want to maximize savings, protect sensitive equipment or ensure 24/7 backup.
Energy is generated in direct current (DC), yet the grid and devices operate on alternating current (AC). The difference requires the energy to be converted using an inverter. Inverters take in DC energy and pass it through a switching mechanism
up to 60 seconds per second, reversing polarity to create alternating power. There is loss in converting the energy, so the AC output will be approximately 80% of the DC input.
