Solar Power On A Modular Building?

Living in Arizona we have the perfect solution to alternative energy, most clients have sunshine and good weather over 300 days a year and are able to really get back their solar investment quickly. We do however service clients in areas that have sunshine only 65 days a year, and solar power on their modular buildings is not necessarily the best value and investment choice for alternative energy, and for the life cycle of the solar components.

Living green is a life style choice, and if you are an agency you are tasked with making your site projects LEED certified or accredited. Sometimes the cost of the components and the repay on the power grid are not sufficient. Some clients would have to keep the solar panels for over 50 years to see the benefits of the cost of the panels and the installation. Other clients make a small leap and only have solar water heaters or solar pool heaters. No matter what your goals are for the environment, they also have to make sense with your budget.

There are many choices you can make to go "green" and "sustainable" besides just the energy efficiencies that will reduce your carbon footprint. You can use recycled components (ie insulation, carpet) , you can ensure they have low or zero VOC content (ie paint and adhesives), you can choose products that are sustainable such as bamboo flooring, you can upgrade your lighting to LED lights or natural sola-tubes.

Let our design team help you select the best design standards for your location and construction vicinity. There is no universal answer, and by choosing construction professionals such as Modular Solutions you are able to discover & make effective choices based on what is the best for your available schedule, budget, and resources.
