Onsite Solar/Behind the Meter

Reach your sustainability goals with onsite solar

The electricity system is changing, from the way we generate power to the way we distribute and use it. Take control of your energy supply with an onsite solar system. Typically connected “behind-the-meter”, an onsite system can provide clean energy directly to your business, and significantly reduce your utility bills. Knobelsdorff can build and maintain a scalable solar system for sustainable focus companies, allowing them to reach their sustainability goals. There are numerous benefits to onsite solar, including:

  • Proven reliable technology with 30+ year operating life
  • Hedge energy prices by fixing all/portion of a utility bill
  • Customer, employee, and investor focus on reducing greenhouse gases
  • Bolster company sustainability initiatives

Battery Storage

Eliminate or reduce demand charges with a battery storage system

A solar-plus-battery system consists of rechargeable batteries that store energy from solar systems or the electric grid, and in return, provide energy to power a company. The advanced technology of battery energy storage allows companies to apply peak shaving and load shifting strategies, ultimately decreasing their utility costs.

KE can design, install, commission, and maintain your battery storage system. Batter storage systems can:

  • Eliminate or reduce demand charges
  • Provide reliable backup power
  • Help meet corporate sustainability goals
  • Direct demand response programs
  • Reduce carbon dioxide emissions

EV Charging Stations

install your ev charging station with certified electricians

Starting with a strong infrastructure and a dependable charging system, KE will navigate the complexities of an EV charging station installation. Considerations KE will take into account include electrical service available, location, data connectivity, materials, labor, permits, and cost.

For new construction, KE will determine the best location and build the necessary infrastructure, installing the electrical panel with enough circuits and extra conduit to allow for future expansions.

For existing structures, KE will analyze the property and conduct a site assessment to ensure the existing electrical panel has enough circuits, and recommend an ideal placement based on the location of the electrical room and reliable communications. Install includes trenching, electrical upgrades, cell signal booster, and other work as determined.

Whether you’re considering a retrofit, physical overhaul, or starting with new construction — get ahold of us. We look forward to working with you on your next challenge.
