Vision Systems is an innovative architectural design firm. They understand all the facets of commercial building design and management and are well versed on the benefits of commercial solar, including energy cost savings and control.
HES Solar designed and installed a commercial solar system for Vision System in 2018. After that time the company saw rapid and impressive growth. With that company expansion, Vision Systems had a need for a larger solar system. Vision Systems turned again to HES Solar.
Incorporating the available roof space of an on-site storage structure (lower right in photos), HES Solar seamlessly incorporated SunPower components into the existing system. The new panel array increased output by 158.4kW. This size upgrade enabled further energy cost control and savings and supports additional, future company growth.
The precision build of this system expansion showcases HES Solar’s commitment to excellence; the aesthetics of the system are especially appreciated by Vision Systems, a company that designs landmark buildings that help define their regions.
Vision Systems specializes in aluminum glazing. Vision Systems uses this visual emphasis on the environment’s sunlight to enhance the beauty of their designs. It was a natural step for a company so devoted to the beauty of sunlight to also value the energy-production potential of the earth’s strongest resource.
“One great thing about this project is that we designed the array using SunPower’s next generation panel, the A-series, using the highest-efficiency, larger cell type. What’s especially unique about this system is that the array incorporates a tilt-up layout installed on a storage structure; that makes it pretty different from the typical commercial system. We maximized all of the available roof area so it is covered, basically, entirely with panels.“
