Photovoltaic Engineering for the Healthcare Sector

Healthcare facilities are the second largest commercial building energy consumers within the United States. This makes solar energy a natural fit. Photovoltaic engineering can significantly improve the bottom line for healthcare organizations. 

Working with a photovoltaic engineering firm to install a commercial solar system for your healthcare business can help to reduce energy spend and improve community wellness.

Embracing Renewables

Community stewardship is an important consideration for the healthcare sector. Embracing photovoltaic engineering and promoting renewable energy sources not only diversifies an energy portfolio, but improves air quality and overall public wellness. A win-win.

Cut Energy Costs

Hospitals, medical practices, urgent care clinics, and nursing homes work around the clock to save lives. That means their energy usage has no down time. They need 24/7 power to do their jobs. 

The energy demands in these buildings is massive and never-ending. Heating and air conditioning requirements, combined with powering up large medical equipment, such as CT scanners and MRIs, consumes a significant amount of energy. Healthcare facilities need an energy-efficient and cost-effective solution to offset these energy demands..

Implementing energy changes can be a complex process, but considering the switch to alternate power sources is worth it. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, these high energy requirements make health care facilities particularly vulnerable to increases in the cost of fossil fuels. 

Solar not only helps to cut energy costs, but also contributes to onsite energy backup generation, protecting against unpredictable grid outages and diminishing reliance on fossil fuels.

Navigate Solar Tax Incentives with a Trusted Photovoltaic Engineering Company

In the past, tax incentives have been a big driver for commercial solar installations. Recently, legislation has been introduced in Congress to promote the continued use of renewable energy. The Renewable Energy Extension Act would extend expiration dates on clean energy tax incentives, while ensuring continued deployment, growth, and innovation of these technologies. 

An experienced photovoltaic engineering firm can help healthcare facilities take a systematic approach and navigate solar tax incentives.
