Solar Systems for Farmers & Builders

While solar power usage is seeing a boom in business across the world, local acceptance and growth is surging as well. By positioning ourselves among the leading solar contractors in the state, as well as the nation, we’ve been consistently named to an annual list published by a well-recognized source of information in the solar industry. Solora Solar has achieved a top 10 ranking in the State of Washington for 2014 and 2015, and since its founding in 2011 has grown and installed over 2 million watts of solar.

Compiled and published by Solar Power World, the Top 500 Solar Contractors List seeks to identify outstanding solar contractors from the United States and Canada and recognize them for the work they’ve completed. The list also serves as a reminder that these companies have a direct impact on the growth of their local economy, providing new jobs in an exciting industry, as well giving consumers of electricity options and choices regarding delivery of their power.

Solara Solar is a key contributor to a constantly growing and changing market segment that, according to extensive research, will continue to grow year over year. Research indicates that while the production of solar electricity continues to see the majority coming from large or utility-scale plants, the greater number of installations are coming from companies like Solara Solar, bringing clean energy options to the public.

The price of solar energy equipment has been significantly reduced in the last 2-3 years. With the combination of price reduction, increase in cost of energy and available incentives — it makes much more economical sense to do solar now rather than later, particularly for commercial entities, mainly due to additional tax benefits that business can qualify for.

Solora Solar recently has worked on two significantly important projects for two particular market segments — home builders and the farming community.

Home Builders

New Construction Net-Zero Residential Project for Columbia Ridge Homes in Selah, Wash.

Solora Solar has installed a 6.8kW Solar Energy system using 26 solar modules, this system will generate approximate 10,000kWh/year of energy, system also include 24 hours WEB based free monitoring system. This house has additional following energy efficiency and conservation features:

  • Super Insulated with R40 walls and R60 ceilings
  • Air Sealing Exceeds Code by more than 80%
  • Ductless Heating and Cooling system to Prevent Energy Loss
  • All LED Lighting
  • High Efficiency Water Heating and Appliances

This Solar Energy system will not only provide net-zero energy consumption for this his house but also significantly positive impact on environment by reducing Green House Gas emission 155 tons of CO2 over next 25 years.

Solora Solar is currently offering special “BUILDERS” pricing at significant discount for all Builders/Contractor for similar system. To take advantage of this offer, please contact Solora Solar at 509.388.0239 for details.

112kw installation for Green Acres Farms important in farming community and growing market segment

With Green Acres Farms recently completed 250,000 square-foot facility, made up of hop kilns supporting the hop segment of their business, Solora Solar was able to take advantage of the locations prime Southern exposure and near 9,000 square feet of roof to go solar, and begin reducing their overall energy cost. Solara partnered with Kinter Electric of Sunnyside, WA on the install, combining efforts to deliver an all-new 112kw (DC) system. The new system qualifies for the $5,000 per year Washington State Production Incentive Program, a 30% federal tax incentive, and has been projected to generate approximately 90% of the customers current energy requirements, leading to an estimated $500,000 cost-saving over the next 25 years.

The system covers roughly 9,000 square feet of the total roof area.

Another large benefit of the project is the significant and positive impact it will have on the environment – by going solar, at reduction of at least 2,484 tons of harmful greenhouse gas emissions will be recognized over a span of 25 years.

The project was completed with the following hardware:

  • A total of 437 255W Trina Solar Monocrystalline Solar Modules
  • 3 Solectria commercial string inverters
  • Racking systems provided by IronRide
  • Web-based monitoring that keeps watch over solar production, 24 hours per day
