About Dr. Bronner's Solar Power System

"Dr. Bronner's solar array consists of a 346kW solar carport combined with the PredictEnergyTM Energy Management System all part of their sustainability focus."

Dr. Bronner’s began researching how to construct an on-site solar electricity system in 2013.  They quickly realized that the roof of their factory building could not structurally support a solar array. In response, Dr Bronner's pursued a solar project that would utilize build-able areas around the factory with carport structures and steel beams mounted above the loading dock.

Dr. Bronner's solar power installation consists of 1,033 high-performing photovoltaic (PV) modules with 10 three-phase inverters. It is expected to generate 572,000 kilowatt hours of electricity annually, accommodating about 50% of Dr. Bronner’s factory headquarter's needs.

The 346 kW DC solar PV system is coupled with the PredictEnergyTM Commercial Energy Management System, a significant value add for Dr. Bronner’s sustainability program and their ability to reduce their energy consumption and energy costs. The solar array is another example of Dr. Bronner’s company vision for sustainability,  inspired by the philosophy of company founder, Emanuel Bronner.

Dr. Bronner's project was scoped and designed with HelioPower's predictive analytics and profiling tools to identify energy cost reduction opportunities and help the company reach their substantial sustainability goals.

HelioPower's mission is not only to work with our clients to  find the most cost-effective solution for their energy needs, but to make a positive difference to the planet as well.  We are honored to partner with Dr. Bronner's.
