Commercial

Commercial properties consist of educational, medical and hospital facilities, office buildings, retail centers, shopping malls, hotels, and amusement parks. Each of these entities use tremendous amounts of electricity every day. Given their current energy footprint, many of these facility owners are implementing sustainability programs to reduce their energy costs and decrease their dependence on the grid. DC power is being explored due to its ability to work with solar arrays, fuel cells and wind technologies. In addition, using DC power also allows facility owners to improve the cost effectiveness of using new technologies such LED lighting, brushless DC drives and direct connections to energy storage systems.
