G&G Systems completed the first solar project at a major property on The Strip. The solar panels that are installed have a 25-year warranty, ensuring that businesses have cutting edge technology while giving them the opportunity to recoup their installation costs several times over. Businesses can work with G&G Systems to obtain their LEED gold, silver or platinum rating, which can garner tax rebates.
G&G Systems also works with Las Vegas homeowners to install affordable solar panels. Nevada has the most average sun hours in the United States – more than six hours a day, according to the National Renewable Energy Laboratory. G&G Systems can design and install stand-alone systems with batteries or provide homeowners with a grid-tied system that will qualify for the local net metering program. The net metering program allows homeowners to use their own solar power when they need it, and send surplus power back into the grid to generate credits. Credits can then be used for the power needed at night or when it is too cloudy for their solar panels to collect energy.
Concentrator Photovoltaics have the highest efficiency of current technologies. Using tracking technology and lenses to direct light into small high efficiency solar cells sets these systems apart. This type of solar is typically used in utility or other large scale installations. G&G Systems has installed concentrators for Henderson’s River Mountain for the Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA), which is the largest power user in Southern Nevada.
