We’ve built trust among our clients and have shown commercial enterprises that solar is not only good for the environment, but also good for business.
Offset or eliminate your facility's electricity cost!
In recent years, the economics of solar have greatly improved and corporations have gone solar to "give back" environmentally, but moreso, as a financial decision for energy cost control.
With the rising cost of electricity year after year, it can be hard to budget for the future. Solar is a great solution to lock in your rate and produce your own power. Commercial building owners can have the peace of mind knowing their electricity costs are under control, and the 30% Federal Tax Credit can help lower the cost of going solar.
Solar energy tailored to your needs! The size of the building, type of business, and rate schedule are all factors we look at when evaluating the energy needs of our clients. Our dedicated design and engineering team can customize the system to your needs and make any necessary changes immediately.

Commercial Solar Benefits: Why Businesses Go Solar
Businesses today can benefit from solar panels in any number of ways. As mentioned previously, you gain the benefit of being seen as a green company in your community. However, the advantages of solar installation for small business needs go far beyond generating a reputation for being eco-conscious.
Here are 7 advantages of investing in a commercial solar photovoltaic system:
Obviously, one of the most important reasons for a small business to look into solar energy solutions is to save money. Utility costs for even a modest retail establishment can be enormous. As a business owner, you need to take every step possible to reduce operating costs, while maximizing profitability. Solar energy panels give you the means to do just that, without adding risk or reducing operability.
With rapid payback, strong internal rates of return and a predictable cash flow stream, commercial solar projects can deliver outstanding long-term investment returns for businesses. In many cases, a commercial solar project can generate incremental revenue, effectively creating a new profit center for the company.
Electricity prices are highly volatile and difficult to predict. By generating your own clean electricity onsite, you can eliminate your company's exposure to this price volatility and make energy a fixed cost.
Federal, state and even local governments frequently offer attractive rebates and incentives to encourage businesses to invest in solar. Effective utilization of available incentive programs can dramatically reduce the upfront cost of solar, while providing a predictable long-term revenue stream.
Solar positions your business as a forward-thinking environmental leader, while aligning you closer to your local community. Your customers, employees, vendors, shareholders and neighbors can all share in the success of your corporate commitment to the environment.
For companies with large and geographically diverse real estate holdings, a properly executed Solar Portfolio Assessment provides a comprehensive analysis of the project-level solar feasibility across each individual facility, and guidance into incorporating solar energy into their energy procurement plan. When solar project economics are favorable, companies may have several procurement options, such as entering into long-term low-cost solar electricity purchase agreements, or owning solar systems directly and earning attractive ROI.
For business owners who own their own property, solar panel installation for small business use can offer yet another advantage – higher property value. Like residential installation, business installation of solar panels increases your property value, offering a higher return, should you decide to sell. That can be an added bonus for growing companies that will need to consider relocating to a larger facility, down the road.
