Bay Solar Group was formed by a group of engineering and construction experts. We offer complete solar installation and consultation services to the commercial sector. From commercial property owners to business owners, Bay Solar group has over 6 years of experience in working with large commercial projects. When it comes to Solar Installation for Commerical properties, the installation and engineering process requires more extensive skills and experience that not all solar companies can provide.
Commercial properties tend to have more electrical usage than residential properties and the bill structure is much more complex. With every consultation, we will include a detailed analysis with recommendations, and give you an in-depth energy bill evaluation. Commercial solar applications have 45 commercial rates in comparison the residential which only has 3 major rates. This is why the energy bill evaluation and analysis is the foundation for understanding how solar will benefit commercial properties the most.
In every home, there is a main electrical breaker panel that has a large impact on your solar system. When the electricity is fed from the solar system, the breaker panel distributes the energy into its circuit breakers and that in turn brings power to the different parts of your home. Depending on a few key factors such as: Year the home was built and the type of fuse bus your electrical panel has, this will determine if anything needs to be replaced and/or upgraded on your panel.
Based on the size of the home (square footage), and the year it was built, the amps will vary. A typical house will have approximately 100 or 200 amp electrical panels. Larger homes (more than 2500 sq ft), are equipped with 200 amps, while homes smaller than this will only have 100 amp panels.
In some situations, the main electrical panel will have to be upgraded so that it can support the energy load given off by the solar system. Some factors that would determine this is by looking at the bus bar rating and finding out where the energy is fed into the main breaker panel. If you have a centrally located breaker in your home, it will not be compatible with the solar system so your main panel might have to be downsized to 150 amps. If the amp requirement is higher than 150 amps to run your solar system, then we will recommend an upgrade of your main electric panel to handle your solar installation.
If an upgrade of your electrical breaker panel is required, our team at Bay Solar Group will replace your current breaker panel with a new, smaller breaker to handle the energy capacity that your solar system requires.
To see what your current amperage rating is, locate your electric panel and look for the label sticker attached to your unit. This will tell you what your break panel’s amperage rating is. If your system is larger than 10 kilowatts, then breaker will need to be upgraded or replaced to handle the solar energy requirements. Please contact us anytime so that we can give you a free consultation!

When it comes to solar, not all roofs are in ideal condition for the installation. Some factors that determine this are the roof’s condition, or the type of material the roof is made out of. One of our expert team members evaluate your roof and recommend you to replace it with your solar project.
During the partial re-roofing process, our solar energy professionals in the Bay Area will streamline the process by only replacing the needed sections only, and replacing the tiles so that we can keep the cosmetics of your home the same. Once the solar panels have been installed, the old roof will not be seen under the panesl and you will only see the tiles outside of the solar arrays. We will remove all of the old tiles from your roof and replace them during the time we install the solar panels. The roof areas that the solar panel will be mounted on will be secured with premium composit or asphalt to give your roof a polished look.
