In the always watchful eyes of the community, when they see a business go green with a solar electric system their vision of that business changes. They see a company who cares about the environment and one thats ensuring a cleaner future for generations to come. That impact begins a ripple effect, a potential customer is now more apt to do business with them, than the competition who doesn’t put forth that green effort.

Why a solar electric system for your Commercial Property?

Benefits abound when it comes to going solar for your business. It’s time for that vast unused space, that is your roof to start working for you! Here are just a few of the many reasons to fill that roof with solar panels!

  • Cleaner Image – As we said above, the public’s view on you changes when they see your green initiative. And you will be able to showcase this in your marketing material.
  • Net Metering – Reverse your meter, off-set your electric usage and sell back to the utility.
  • Depreciation – Bring the overall system cost down over 5 years by using your system as a business tax write off.
  • System Lifetime – With the average system life being 25 plus years, thats years of discounted energy costs that you wouldn’t have without a solar electric system. Also in that time your roof will last longer due to the panels protecting it from the harsh elements.
