A large powerful photovoltaic system is a great solution for your business. A 80 kW solar system ensures a steady energy supply for your enterprise and decreases or nullifies your electricity bills. We offer complete solar kits and our engineers picked the components so that they fit together nicely.
What is 80 kW solar system
Commercial and industrial scope installations are mostly ground-based. You can however, choose the way you want to build your system. There are three options:
A grid-tie 80 kwh solar system is the most widespread configuration for large installations. Your system is connected to the grid and you can draw energy from it as usual or sell your excess solar energy into it. Your utility in return will give you credits that you can use to cover your bills for night consumption.
Hybrid 80 kilowatt solar system requires a hybrid inverter and energy storage. Hybrid system gives you uninterrupted power supply: when a power outage happens, an inverter switches your house to battery support.
An off-grid 80kw solar system with batteries is a rare sight, but it can be used if you can’t connect your system to power lines. Your building will rely only on solar panels during the day and on energy storage at night.
The production of your system will depend on the number of factors, such as weather, positioning and tilt of your panels, shading, and most importantly, number of sun hours in your location. For instance, the amount of energy that a 80kw solar system produce per day in summer California is going to be around 400-480 kWh. However, in New York the same installation is more likely to make only 250-350 kWh per day.
The 80kw solar system size will depend on the PV modules that you’ll choose. Generally, 72/144-cell, 96-cell or larger panels are used in commercial systems and the output of one panel ranges from 400W to over 600W. A 80000 watt solar system requires 130-200 solar panels. You can save space by choosing bifacial modules. They have an active rear side which gives up to 33% more production to the front side. However, proper installation is very important for them since the bifacial gain depends on reflectivity of a surface.
80kw solar system cost
Solar systems of commercial and industrial scope take a long time to build: from several months and up to year. However, electricity rates are steadily rising and solar systems successfully pay for themselves in the long run. PV modules last for over 25 years and their ROI can reach 500%.
The cost of a 80kw solar system will depend on configuration of your system, solar incentives that you’ll be able to make use of, labor expenses, permits and papers from authorities that you’ll have to get, and the panels themselves. When it comes to large installations, Chinese PV modules are the most popular choice because of their low cost and high efficiency.
Your 80kw solar system price also depends on the design of the installation. Grid-tie installation is the cheapest since it only requires panels and inverters. Whenever you add energy storage, things get expensive. The 80kw off grid solar system price is going to be high since commercial-scope systems require a large battery bank.

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.
