Manufacturing / Industrial



To remove limits from your company’s growth you want a solar system that scales along with your business and removes energy expenses as a cost concern. HES Solar has been a San Diego industry leader since 2001 and has designed and installed some of the largest commercial energy projects in Southern California. With HES Solar your business will experience expert service and will own a superior quality powerplant that will deliver the electricity you need to grow your business for decades.

It is no secret that manufacturing facilities can experience some of the highest overhead in the commercial industry. The largest expense typically seen by manufacturers is energy. Over the years many companies throughout Southern California have identified solar power as the perfect way to reduce operating costs. These companies today hold a key competitive edge in costs as well as public perception.

There are strong incentives outside of long-term energy cost reduction and stabilization. Let us show you not only how the Investment Tax Credit’s (ITC) 30% credit and the Self Generation Investment Program (SGIP) rebate can offer more financial benefits, but also why pairing solar system construction with other property improvements can increase your rewards, and how a solar system offers quickly-realized tax benefits.

It’s clear that solar makes sense for factories and manufacturing properties, but it’s also worth considering that the typical manufacturer’s building design provides a very favorable space for a commercial solar system. A large, flat roof with ample space for solar panels allows for a very efficient design and build, and allows component options not always optimal when space is not so abundant. If you don’t already have a solar panel array on your commercial property you are not taking advantage of the full value of your investment.

Some of our Manufacturing/Industrial industry solar projects include:

  • Creative Electron
  • Bio Film
  • Magnaflow
  • ICE 2
