Off-grid solar systems offer a world of new energy opportunities in places where traditional power lines are too impractical or too expensive. Ameresco is one of North America's leading solar companies in engineering, building and maintaining off-grid solutions.

Off-Grid Solar: Power Where You Need It

Highly efficient off-grid solar systems allow energy generation in any location with sufficient sunlight. Off-grid solar provides a cost-effective, low-maintenance, reliable solution for many applications, including--

Highway Infrastructure:
Illuminated signage, motorist aid call boxes and street lighting can all be powered without the expense of installing and maintaining power lines.

Emergency Power:
Self-contained solar energy systems offer a dependable alternative and supplement to diesel generators.

Deliver power to remote sites and reduce high infrastructure costs for network growth.

Ranches, Reservations and Remote Locations:
Add water pumps, lighting and remote power outlets without diesel generator emissions and noise.


Ameresco continues to find creative and innovative ways of using storage for on-site resiliency as well as for grid benefits when sold to grid operators. Resiliency is at the forefront of mind with superstorms and climate change. Ameresco offers a variety of innovative, comprehensive, renewable solutions to meet customer requirements.
