Commercial Solar Installations
Like you, we’re business owners. So we understand your priorities and how much controlling your budget is critical to the sustainability of your business.
About one third of all electricity in the United States is consumed by buildings, and utility rates are rising every year. Not only will installing solar panels make a difference in your company’s carbon footprint, but it will also make a serious dent in your operating costs.
Invest in assets,
not your electric bill.
In addition to reducing and controlling your operating costs, going solar is a profitable investment with a strong rate of return. By installing solar panels on your business’s rooftop, you control your operating expenses and become less vulnerable to rising utility rates.
Financing options for
Power purchase agreements (PPAs), operating leases, capital leases, and energy service agreements are only a few of the options available to finance your solar system. Have solar installed for little or no money down and realize electricity savings from day one.
The 30% tax credit is not the only tax incentive available.
Commercial solar installations also benefit from 50% bonus depreciation and 6-year accelerated depreciation, enabling you to depreciate 85% of your system cost. With these incentives you’ll enjoy faster payback and a higher return on investment.
Business operations shouldn’t stop when the grid goes out.
With commercial energy storage you can establish energy independence, protect yourself from utility peak rates, and avoid losses during outages.
There are even battery systems with smart software to further optimize your electricity consumption.
