Commercial properties have varying roof types and elevations that are far more diverse than those of residential properties. There are more options for installation sites like parking lots, rooftops, and ground mounts, and we’ll advise which route is best for you!
We understand that not everyone has the budget and capability to purchase a solar panel system outright. Because solar panels for commercial purposes are usually bigger than residential, it may seem like a greater task, but we’ve got you covered.
ENGINEERING & PERMITTING
Depending on the space on your roof and the structure of your property, our engineers will take the time to measure the space, and cross-reference that with their recommendation on the number of panels it would take to power the area.
INSTALLATION & INSPECTION
After meticulous calculation for the installation to take place, we’ll do the hard labor and then offer a thorough inspection of the panels. Keeping up with their health from the beginning promotes less chance of damage.
Routine cleaning can be attributed to preventative maintenance, and should be performed at least twice a year. Corrective maintenance may include troubleshooting, diagnostics, repairs, etc. to keep the system operating optimally.
Once everything is said and done, our team will keep an eye on the panels by performing a thorough inspection. Monitoring the system regularly will allow you to stay in-the-know with the capabilities at all times. For at-home maintenance, here are simple steps that can be taken, but for more extensive jobs, call us!
WHY COMMERCIAL SOLAR
If you find yourself wondering if you can afford to go solar, the question you should ask yourself is if you can afford not to! The price of electricity has steadily increased for over 20 years. Making the switch is the best way to go!
With the costs of electricity going up coupled with the increase in solar panel installations, it's no wonder that so many homeowners are taking this step now more than ever. If you're ready to be part of the cause, then let us know, today!
With commercial properties, there is a little more leniency on the possibilities of solar power. Unlike residential properties, commercial businesses can take advantage of the land surrounding their company. Installing carport panels absorbs energy and provides shade for the employees vehicles.
SAVE ON YOUR ELECTRICITY BILL
We are committed to preparing our clients with the proper knowledge about their system, so they can be informed every step of the way. From the consultation to completion, we let you know when you can expect to start seeing savings from the project.
INCREASE THE VALUE OF YOUR PROPERTY
Solar panels are basically upgrades added onto your home like a bathroom remodel or renovated pool. Potential homeowners will pay a premium price for your newly solar home, so making the upgrades sooner will help you receive a ROI sooner than later.
EVERY DAY SAVINGS
Depending on where you're located, how big your family is, and your daily consumption of electricity is, you could be missing out on a huge opportunity. We can help you with the calculations so you'll know if renewable energy is the right step for you! We know it is, but we'll crunch numbers for further support.
WHAT REBATES/INCENTIVES ARE AVAILABLE?
Right now you can take advantage of the 30% tax credit that is available to anyone who purchases solar technology for their home or business. This tax credit does expire at the end of 2016 so you should act soon!
Businesses can take advantage of MACRS depreciation as well as the 30% tax credit. The combination of these two incentives makes solar for business an unbelievable deal!
HOW DOES THE 30% TAX CREDIT WORK?
The solar tax credit is a tax credit that is used to reduce your tax liability. So at tax time when you owe money to the IRS, you would use your solar tax credit to cancel out your IRS bill by the value of your tax credit. The tax credit is NOT a deduction, it’s a credit.
Example: You owe the IRS $10,000 in taxes, but you have a $10,000 tax credit from solar. So you would owe the IRS $0!
WHY IS SOLAR POWER CHEAPER THAN WHAT I HAVE NOW?
Electricity that we utilize nowadays has steadily increased for over 20 years, but with solar power, that doesn't occur. The sun's price doesn't increase.
When you produce your own power with solar, you could be paying a lot and you would NOT be subject to any inflation. You can lock in your electricity rate forever!
HOW IS THE SOLAR ENERGY STORED?
The energy is absorbed into the panel batteries and then spread throughout the home or business to utilize as power. The more panels there are, the more power you can harbor and use daily.
WHAT EQUIPMENT DOES SOLAR USE?
We’ve hand picked the highest quality equipment after combing through dozens of manufacturers. We focus on the quality of the product so we can guarantee that our clients are receiving nothing less than the best.
HOW DOES AN INVERTER WORK?
Solar power inverters convert DC power to AC power. All of the appliances in your home use AC power and most all of the world is powered by AC power (unless you live on an island). Without inverters, your solar panels will only produce DC power, which your home cannot use.
WHAT MAINTENANCE IS REQUIRED?
Aside from cleaning off the dirt and dust that accumulates on the panels, not much else needs to be done. For larger repairs, call the professionals!
SHOULD I REROOF BEFORE INSTALLING SOLAR PANELS?
If you don't already have plans to reroof, don't worry about it. Down the line, if you change your mind, it's not as difficult as you might think to remove the panels and work. It’s extremely common for roofers and solar installers to work together on projects.
