LIST


The most popular posts on commercial solar in 2016Although we launched the Business Feed less than half a year ago, it’s been around long enough for us to see a handful of posts make their way to the top of the leader board based on your input, interaction, and social media sharing. So before we make the complete transition to the shiny new year ahead, we thought we’d revisit some of the previous year’s greatest hits—which cover topics like the basics of commercial solar installations, solar panel efficiency and solar financing.

Returning readers: thank you for being such an engaged audience. And if you’re new to the party (or simply missed one of these high performers), we proudly present a review of our top 5 Business Feed posts of 2016:

5. VIDEO: The Basic Components of a Commercial Solar Installation
A high-level overview explaining how a typical on-site commercial solar panel installation works. This video caught fire on our social channels and continues to see a lot of activity.

4. INFOGRAPHIC: Why Companies Are Adopting Sustainable Business Practices
A quick-hit infographic (a good infographic is worth a thousand words, right?) that outlines the very real business benefits of adopting sustainable practices, and why companies should go green.

3. PODCAST: Learn the Basic Components of a Commercial Solar Installation
Our very first podcast—describing how commercial solar systems work—has been a hit. And the data implies you’d like to hear more. So expect additional episodes of the SunPower Business Broadcast in 2017.

2. ARTICLE: Forecast Says There May Never Be a Better Time to Invest in Commercial Solar
A very informative piece that helps organizations answer such questions as “Should we wait to go solar?” and “Are solar panels worth the investment?”

1. BUSINESS BRIEF: Beyond Efficiency: 4 Important Considerations When Evaluating Solar Panels
Although one of our more recent posts, it’s quickly rocketed to the top. This brief outlines what makes a good solar panel, and explains what to consider when evaluating commercial solar options. It also contains lots of great information to help clarify some industry-specific terms like panel efficiency, degradation rate, and more.

 

We’re looking forward to producing many more helpful and informative pieces for you throughout 2017. We have some great ideas brewing, but would love to hear what topics you’d like to see as well—just email us at businessfeed@sunpower.com.

Happy New Year!
