At Stones River Electric, we believe going solar should be simple. And with our complete range of solar energy services, it is.
With 30 years in business, our trained solar team turns the traditionally complex planning and purchasing of a solar power system into a quick, efficient and headache-free experience. We provide turnkey solutions which allow us to aggressively design and manage solar photovoltaic and concentrating solar collector projects. We are not locked into any particular technology or vendor, allowing us to find the optimal solution for your needs. Then, we leverage the full buying power of our company to negotiate the best deal. Our dedicated resources group continually evaluates technologies, operating procedures and policies so we can deliver maximum performance at an affordable price.
Whether it’s developing energy production and payback models, evaluating technologies, assessing finance options, or building, maintaining, and operating your solar energy solution, we bring experience and the ability to see your solar power installation through to completion.
Through strategic partnerships Stones River Electric provides auxiliary solutions, project consulting and design services to help clients deploy electricity on a MW Scale. Stones River and Woodstone Energy (www.woodstoneenergy.com) employ credentialed NABCEP solar designers. Stones River Electric holds the Tennessee alliance with Sopogy (www.sopogy.com) to provide a solid CSP offering. Other collaborations include Energy Focus, Inc. (www.energyfocusinc.com), currently participating in the Very High Efficiency Solar Cell (VHESC) consortium project with the United States Government.
The US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is developing the VHESC solar module technology for compact renewable energy to power both permanent and mobile bases, as well as to reduce the considerable logistical burden of supplying energy (e.g. batteries and fuel) to the US military in the field. The Program goal is to deliver advanced solar research to enable high efficiency, low cost photovoltaics by raising the system power efficiency of a new class of solar modules to 40% and to deliver engineering prototype modules that can be readily manufactured. The modules under development use a novel optical ‘spectrum splitting’ system that utilizes Energy Focus’ innovative photovoltaic coating technologies. The optical splitting system directs light from the sun into different paths corresponding to the color of the light, and concentrates the light onto photovoltaic cells that cover different segments of the solar spectrum. The technology could potentially boost rooftop power three-fold over silicon.
This technology currently holds the world record solar efficiency rating at over 47.1%. This research is just one aspect that continues to advance the Stones River/Woodstone Energy turnkey solar offering.
We can assist you through the entire design, development and installation process. Our expert staff will assist in providing guidance for tax and depreciation savings strategies, while including local rebates and aggressive pricing into a sustainable project.
