June 28, 2019

Here at SAVKAT, we provide our commercial customers with options that are easy to install, save money, and have minimal monitoring issues. The end goal of installing solar is always at the forefront of our team: bring maximum value to our customers. A commercial solar system should only add value to business owners and we strive to bring the best value through offering the Helix SunPower Commercial Solution.

The Helix Platform: SunPower’s Commercial Option

The Helix Platform from SunPower is the world’s first fully-integrated commercial solar solution. SunPower designs every element with every other piece in mind, making for seamless product install and translating directly into business-owner savings.  Like the residential SunPower systems, everything in the Helix platform from the solar cells to the software for each system is designed, tested, and made by SunPower. This prioritizes fast install, low maintenance, and customer value.

The Rooftop Mount

The Helix Rooftop mount features a mechanical system to hold commercial panels securely in place. The engineering factors in regional snow loads, wind speeds, and other natural factors to put customers at ease in all different climates. The Power Station is factory preconfigured for easier interconnection and includes inverters and panel boards. This removes installer error with field wiring already completed in-house. Talk about easy installation with no disruption to your business!

Over the past 30 years, SunPower’s Helix mechanical system has been under harsh internal scrutiny to maximize energy potential in their product offerings. Industry-leading roof coverage along with flexible ballast, anchor options, and tilt angle options have maximized power density and energy production of the Helix System. All of this equates to 64% more power per roof and 72% more energy created over the life of the system.

Commercial Panel Options

The Helix System allows you to choose your SunPower Commercial panel: the 327W, 340W P17, 350W P17, or 435W.  Your panel choice will depend on your electricity needs, sun exposure, and aesthetics of your building. All commercial panels use the patented SunPower Maxeon cell technology: a copper back-contact design element that reduces cell breakage as well as temperature corrosion due to temperature changes. Your panels will resist all-natural elements and your maintenance will be minimal.

SunPower efficiency is even unmatched in the commercial solar market. SunPower panels range from 16.5% to 20.3% efficiencies depending on the commercial panel. Compared to a conventional system, these panels tout 31% more power per panel and 60% more energy per square foot. The Helix platform is backed by the SunPower warranty of 25-years for power and product defects. In addition to the SunPower warranty, SAVKAT also offers a workmanship warranty of 10-years.
