Solar energy adds asset value to a property, reduces operating expense and produces higher rents.

Solar produces fixed-cost power over a useful life of up to 35 years.

Solar energy is a sound, stable and secure capital investment.
Solar Energy Solutions
Commercial and Industrial Grid-Tied and Off-Grid Solar Energy
ArcStar developes, acquires and montetizes commercial and industrial grid-tied systems that integrate with existing energy infrastructure and the utility grid seamlessly. The client facility remains connected to commercial utility power at all times, even while the solar equipment is providing site power.
The ArcStar management team also has many years of experience in deploying ultra-reliable off-grid power in remote locations and developing markets. These systems typically provide mission-critical power where utility power is non-existant or unreliable and in remote or harsh environments where diesel and other forms of traditional generation are expensive or not practical for other reasons.

Purpose-Specific Solar Solutions
Working closely with site owners and operators, best in class professionals will analyze prospective sites and energy applications to determine their suitability for solar energy. This process will include utility rate analysis, existing electrical infrastructure, alternative power options and other factors that will determine the value of solar integration vs. other choices. Our investment-grade processes and tools allow us to determine the solar resources available at the site, structural integrity of buildings, average weather conditions, zoning/permitting requirements, financing alternatives and many other factors that will impact long term solar energy production and investment returns.
