Commercial Solar Installation
Small business owners are always looking for ways to improve business efficiency, performance, and most importantly, your BOTTOM LINE.
As with many small businesses, you understand the full affects of operating on a small budget, whether thats for hiring employees, marketing your business, or just paying for everyday operations costs.
It’s because of these everyday decisions and obstacles that when the idea of going solar is brought to light, you probably shake your head and say, “Maybe someday when we’ve grown a bit more”.
We encounter this all of the time, and understand the intricate layers of a small business and how choosing where you invest your hard earned dollars can be daunting, overwhelming, and just down-right stressful.
Despite the worries, Solar energy may actually be the best move you could make for your business, RIGHT NOW!
Receive Tax Credits
Solar power can save you a significant amount of money. With the federal corporate tax credit still available, your business is eligible to receive a 30% tax credit on the cost of your solar system. In addition, MACRS depreciation provides an important tool for businesses to recover certain capital costs over the property’s lifetime. This allows businesses to deduct the depreciable basis over five years and reduce tax liability for the business. Accelerated depreciation, along with the Investment Tax Credit, allow businesses to realize a much faster return on investment for their solar installation.
Consistent Energy Bill
With historical electric rate data, we know that rates increase annually and as we consume more energy those rates will increase overtime. Solar power allows the business to lock in the cost of your energy bill and avoid the volatility of fluctuating energy costs. After your system is up and running, you’ll be able to identify how much you spend on energy and while energy rates increase your electricity bill will remain consistent from year to year.
Save Money and Reduce Operating Costs
Probably the most obvious reason a business should invest in the solar is to SAVE MONEY and reduce your monthly energy bill. A solar system has a life expectancy of 25 plus years. During that time, most businesses are able to realize the payback for their system in as little as 2-3 years. After, you will produce energy at no additional cost; in essence saving money that can be allocated to future business growth such as adding employees, expanding services, or investing in marketing.
Commitment to Sustainability
Buyers and clients love products and services that are sun-powered! Switching to Solar provides a great opportunity to attract new customers and keep your current customers coming back. Today’s customers are interested in sustainable, eco-friendly products and services. Showing your customers that you are committed to reducing your carbon footprint, can have a large impact by helping to increase customers and sales overtime.
Commit to Renewables
There has never been a better time for small businesses to transition to solar energy as a means of reducing your carbon footprint, increasing value in your business, lowering overhead costs, and displaying to customers your commitment to the environment.
