100kW solar system

In times when energy prices steadily go up, getting your own solar system can be a smart business decision. A 100kW solar system can make your business completely independent from electric companies and their policies, or at least sufficiently lower your bills. In this section of our website you can check out our complete systems of different designs.

3 reasons for business to go solar

1. Solar system significantly lowers electric bills of your enterprise or eliminates them completely. A 100kw solar system with battery storage provides backup when the grid is down.

2. Eventually panels pay for themselves and you can look at them as a long term investment. The ROI depends on rates and solar policies in the state. The lifespan of PV modules exceeds 25 years, and you can expect a 100 kwh solar system to bring your money back 2-3 times at least.

3. Solar panels improve the image of your enterprise. By using green energy, you show that your business cares about the future of the Earth.

What is a 100 kw solar system

Large commercial and industrial systems are ground-based and most of them are grid-tie, which means that the system is connected to the commercial grid. Grid-tie configurations give you the option of net metering: by pumping your excess energy into the grid, you make your electric meter go backwards. However, you can also pair your 100kw solar system with batteries to build a hybrid or an off-grid system: while these are more expensive options, this will give your system more sustainability. Having batteries makes your installation more independent: for example, you can avoid peak utility rates.

To build a 100000 watt solar system you would need from 150 to 250 solar panels, assuming that you’ll pick modules with a power output from 400 to 600 Watts. Generally, commercial systems are made with 72/144-cell, 96-cell panels or larger. The 100kw solar system size thus will depend on the panels that you’ll choose. Consider purchasing bifacial panels if space is an issue: a bifacial module has an active backside that generates energy by using sunlight that was reflected from the ground.

The amount of energy that a 100kw solar system produce per day depends on the following factors:

  • weather;
  • positioning and angle of your panels;
  • shading;
  • properties of your panels;

The most important metric, however, is the number of peak sun hours in your location. For instance, in California in June it ranges from 5 to 6 hours per day. A 100 kilowatt solar system thus will generate from 500 to 600 kWh per day. In New York during winter the number of sun hours will be closer to 2.5-3.5, thus you’ll get around 250 to 350 kWh per day.

100kW solar system cost

The construction of PV systems of a large scale is a long and expensive process. It may take up to a year to complete, and the majority of time you’ll spend obtaining necessary permits and papers. The cost of 100kw solar system will depend on the panels that you’ll use. Chinese solar panels are the most common choice for large systems because they are cheap and efficient.

Design of your system also matters. Grid-tie 100kw solar system kit is the cheapest option since it includes only panels and an inverter (several units). Hybrid kits require a high-tech inverter and energy storage. Off-grid systems of such a scope are a rarity since batteries greatly increase your 100kw solar system price and net metering is not available.

Try to make use of solar incentives that are available to you. The most important of them is the Federal Solar Tax Credit. It allows you to deduct from your taxes 26% (in 2022) of your final 100kW solar system cost with batteries or without them. The size of the incentive is going to decrease to 22% in 2023 and to 10% in 2024. Consult with your installer about programs that might help you to save money.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I choose the right system size?
Your utility bills contain the energy consumption data for your home. All you need to do is divide the daily figure by the number of peak sun hours in your area. The result will be a gross estimate of a system size needed to offset 100% of your energy needs. Please refer to our article on sizing solar panel systems for more detailed instructions.
How do I know if a system is good for my house?
You can browse through our catalog and pick a system with desired power output and functionality. Our engineer with 20+ years of experience will adapt it based on the information you provide. He will take into account your location, roof pitch, house orientation and other factors. You don’t need to know a single thing about solar – we will support you at every stage.
Which system (grid-tie, off-grid or hybrid) will work for me the best?
It is impossible to give a good recommendation without knowing any details, but we can share the general principles. A grid-tie system is the standard choice: it is the most affordable and lets you take advantage of net metering. You need an off-grid system if the grid is unavailable or full independence is desired. A hybrid system is a mix of the two, performing equally well with and without a grid connection. You can find a more nuanced take on the difference among the three types in our article.
Does a solar system include all that is needed for installation?
Yes, our systems include absolutely all components. You won’t need to buy any extra parts to install it and start generating power.
Will you install the solar panel system for me?
Currently we do not provide installation services. You will need to contact an independent solar installer.
Do you offer a warranty for your solar panel systems?
All components of our systems come with a manufacturer’s warranty. We also stand behind the work of our engineers who configure the systems and guarantee full compatibility.
How can I get my system?
We work with the top freight carriers like XPO, FedEx, ODFL, R&L, etc. We also offer a free pickup option so that our clients could get the equipment cheaper and faster. Note that pickup is dependent on the availability of equipment in our fulfillment centers, and may not be feasible in your location.
Do deliveries of solar panel systems take longer?
We deliver our systems as fast as the rest of our equipment. Typically it takes 5 to 7 days.
Do you have all the displayed systems in stock?
Yes, we offer full transparency and update the availability of items in real time.
What is the benefit of buying a solar panel system compared to buying all the equipment element by element?
Our systems are configured by an engineer with more than 20 years of experience. We will adapt the kit to your conditions and ensure compatibility.
Does a solar panel system come with a plan or a manual?
The equipment manufacturers normally provide user manuals for their products. These can be accessed via our website or the official websites of the respective manufacturers. Aside from that, we do not provide any other materials, but we're ready to consult you along the way.
