Solar energy as an alternative power source for your business can improve your return on facility investments.

Our solar experts have the technical and financial expertise to develop your solar installation from initial concept to reality with little or no capital outlay. This is possible with industry-standard deal structures and government incentives that give companies the opportunity to realize the benefits of solar at little or no out-of-pocket cost. There are three distinct deal structures that can be deployed based on your organization type, financial requirements and long-term electricity needs. These include: Power Purchase Agreement (PPA), Solar Lease, and Direct Ownership by Host.

In the business of solar since 2007


Our solar partner and sister company – Rudolph/Libbe, Inc. – has a long list of successful projects ranging from small roof-top arrays to large ground mounted utility-scale projects. We have been a systems integrator and developer since 2007 and can manage projects in the 48 continental states.

For 2013, Rudolph/Libbe ranked 105th in Solar Power World’s Top 250 Solar Contractors and 43rd in Solar Power World’s Top 50 Commercial Solar Contractors. The list ranks applicants according to influence in the residential, commercial and utility solar-installation markets.


Boost efficiency and maximize return


Through our in-house design and solid relationships with key equipment suppliers, your solar project’s efficiency is boosted by as much as 30%. Compared to a typical 1 mega-watt solar array, our system will generate up to $1 million more power for your facility during its life cycle.

With our unique solar development design you harvest more energy over a longer period of time. We select technologies that marry well to increase the typical solar power production window. This allows the equipment to start up sooner and “stay awake” longer.

Solar Maintenance

Once your solar installation is complete, our licensed and certified technicians provide on-going operations and maintenance support to keep it running at optimal efficiency.

Using solar power during hours of peak demand, we can reduce the amount of electricity you purchase from the grid when rates are at their highest.

GEM Energy has both building automation as well as on-demand energy monitoring expertise and can design a FlexSet Control System Solution to work with your GEM Energy solar installation. Our FlexSet solutions provide energy management services to gather real-time data for easy analysis and understanding. FlexSet allows you to react to under-performing zones with performance models based on actual weather conditions for your site, generates alert and integrates with back office functions.
