Everything you should know about utility scale solar

Utility Scale Solar Icon

Advantages of utility scale solar

Utility scale solar harnesses the same solar tech used in commercial projects, but on a much larger scale with a focus on supplying power for utility companies and, in some cases, large corporations like Apple or Walmart.

Usually the solar sizing ranges from 1 mega-watt to 100, depending on the output needs of the organization. Instead of using the power generated for a one-off facility like in commercial applications, utility scale instead sells power directly to the electric grid. 

Stabilize electric costs

The biggest use case for utility scale is to stabilize electric prices over longer periods of time (10 to 30 years or more). Power generated from solar is far more predictable than fossil fuel costs which fluctuate frequently. It’s a triple threat of offering great economics, grid reliability, and sustainability benefits.

Can be combined with battery storage

For distribution during peak demand hours, utility scale solar can be combined with battery storage to store all generated power for distribution later on. 

Bifacial solar panels icon

Bifacial solar application for utility scale; get more with less

For situations where less space is available, levels of power production which match utility scale solar can still be achieved with bifacial solar panels. This technology leaves the solar cells in the panels exposed on both sides to collect reflected sunlight in addition to direct light. Some configurations even follow the sun. The result is that less panels are needed for a greater output.

The NREL is reporting up to 15% more production from bifacial solar panes as opposed to monofacial panels
