Businesses have seen electricity rates spike over the last 5 years, and this trend is apt to continue. If utility bills are a significant portion of your overhead than large increases in electricity costs can affect the viability of your business. Installing your own solar power can reduce or eliminate your exposure to rising electricity rates.
The portion of your usage that is generated on site will no longer be subject to increases in electricity rates. You may even qualify for a different rate once the system is installed and producing electricity.
A solar power system can reduce or eliminate your building’s electric bill. Installing a solar power system is equivalent to prepaying for 40 years of power at a fraction of the cost you are currently paying. The cost/unit of energy you are currently paying is already higher than what you would be paying with solar. As rates increase this difference will only increase, which will result in further savings over the life of the system.
Designed to encourage businesses to generate their own solar power, these programs can pay for up to 70% of the total system cost. These programs include direct rebates, tax credits, loan programs and other financial incentives. More about Government Incentive Programs

Government incentives combined with recent decreases in solar equipment prices, make the investment in solar power a good financial decision for businesses and public agencies. An investment in solar power can generate quick payback as well as long-term savings.
Photovoltaic cells were originally developed for use in space, where repair is extremely expensive, if not impossible. Solar still powers nearly every satellite circling the earth because it operates reliably for long periods of time with virtually no maintenance. Once installed, the solar power system requires little or no maintenance (especially if no batteries are used), and will provide electricity cleanly and quietly for 25 to 40 years. Our solar panels carry a 25-year manufacturer warranty on their production.
Generating electricity from solar energy means less consumption of fossil fuels, reducing pollution and greenhouse gas emission. By switching to solar power your company will be doing its part to combat global warming, and reduce our nation’s dependence of foreign energy sources. Being a green business can, not only reduce your operating costs, but can be a great source of public relations and a good marketing tool. There are a growing number of consumers who make their buying decisions based on the perceived environmental responsibility of the vendor.
