"Today, in directly harnessing the power of the Sun, we're taking the energy that God gave us, the most renewable energy that we will ever see, and using it to replace our dwindling supplies of fossil fuels."
President Jimmy Carter
When we develop and construct a solar plant we use the most economically competitive module on the market combined with economies of scale. Solar trackers yield 30% more efficiency than fixed mount systems. All of our panels are tested against hail and other natural disasters. 25 year production guarantees are an industry standard.
15% - 22.5%
Solar trackers add additional operational value compared to fixed arrays. 1-axis and 2-axis tracking systems are commonly used to maximize sun exposure.
Solar trackers generate electricity in relatively the same amount of space as a fixed-tilt array.
The increase in electricity generated can be 10-25% depending on the geographic location of the solar tracking system.
Advancement in technology has drastically reduced long-term maintenance concerns.
Going "off-grid" is still a relatively new concept, but it is starting to catch on. Adding a battery to your solar system ensures you have power even when the electric grid fails. Commercial and Industrial customers utilize energy storage because of the micro-grid effect. With the constant upgrades that many electrical infrastructures go through, it's important to have a PV system built that is flexible on the grid as well as off it.
"The global energy storage market will double 6 times from now till 2030"
Substations are a key component to electrical transmission and distribution. BFA procures electrical transformers and power generation facilities in order to step up voltage to high-voltage levels for long distance transmission lines. By procuring transformers early in the process, we minimize our risk at a later stage.
Construction timeline is 6-8 months
Operations & Maintenance
For every 100,000 watts installed there is $750 worth of O&M yearly. Robots are becoming increasingly useful. They clean panels using 75% less water than manual cleaning methods and will operate at night, so to not disrupt daytime production. BFA places a heavy emphasis on ensuring the longevity of our systems. From line clear up to soiling and snow push off, our O&M encompasses every facet of the energy solution.
