Alternative Energy Enclosures

Enclosure Fabrication for Environmental Solution Providers

Many businesses that generate and provide electricity have made gradual shifts toward renewable energy sources, and they will likely continue to do so. Petroleum remains the most significant energy source in the world, but environmental concerns are quickly causing many consumers and customers to turn away from coal and nuclear energy.

With the demand for energy gradually rising every year due to the advancements of technology in underdeveloped parts of the world, renewable sources like wind, solar and geothermal have gained a tremendous amount of traction. In fact, alternative energy sources make up the largest growing segment of the power industry.

The technology for these power sources needs to be resilient, as wind turbines and solar panels spend all their time outdoors in often-rigorous weather conditions. If you need custom enclosures for alternative energy sources, APX York Sheet Metal can lend its crafting services toward your endeavor.

Custom Enclosures for Alternative Energy Sources

As simple as they might appear to function on the surface, wind turbines, solar panels and other renewable energy technology rely on a complex array of components that operate under specific circumstances and configurations. Hence, they need proper protection from environmental factors — namely powerful winds, precipitation and extreme temperatures.

We can work in conjunction with your engineers to create optimal protective solutions for your alternative energy sources. In addition to planning out the schematics, we will determine the best metals for the job. We offer varying degrees of certified aluminum and steel, which each hold their strengths and weaknesses.


Do you need to house the critical electronics that regulate a turbine blade’s rotation speed? We can protect them with a reinforced steel enclosure that’s waterproof and accessible with customized locks. Or perhaps you require enclosures for your rooftop solar panels that offer a sturdy build without being too heavy? We can use lightweight aluminum to address your concerns, which cuts down on costs.

We consider ourselves a one-stop shop for your custom metal fabrication needs, which means you won’t need to outsource your project to anyone else. Instead of wasting time and money sending equipment all over the place for completion, trust us to accomplish the entire task using our wide-ranging capabilities, which include laser-cutting, bending, welding, grinding and painting.

From cabinet racks and NEMA boxes to server racks, delicate parts will stay safe from weather conditions and potential vandalism while remaining accessible to technicians for inspections and maintenance. We also work to create solutions that remain flexible in the face of change, as technology can evolve from year to year. Instead of having to alter the enclosures with each update, we will try to create them so retrofitting remains possible, which can save you money in the long run.

By creating durable enclosures for your alternative energy sources, you will enhance their overall safety and make their functions more reliable, which, in turns, makes you more trustworthy in the eyes of your consumers. A positive reputation can go a long way in developing a long-term business relationship, which sets you up for future success.
