August 22, 2019
  • Have you thought about solar energy for your business?
  • Do you feel that solar is only meant for corporations and your business is too small?
  • Did you know you not only save on energy costs, but additional savings through tax credits and write offs?
  • Did you know that the energy the sun provides to the Earth for one hour could meet the global energy needs for one year?

Commercial solar installation provides a number of short-term financial benefits.  In addition to these benefits, installing solar panels can also help your business to hedge against increased energy costs. In many states, the price of electricity can fluctuate significantly due to demand, creating a headache for business owners who are closely managing their cash flow. By installing solar, your business will be able to lock in electricity prices and reduce reliance on an unpredictable expense. Going solar for your commercial business makes it easier for companies to budget and plan for the future.

HOW MUCH CAN YOU SAVE ON COMMERCIAL SOLAR INSTALLATION?

According to marketplace data from EnergySage, property owners of commercial real estate pay an average of $538 in monthly electricity bills before going solar. After commercial solar installation, the electricity bill for the commercial properties was reduced to approximately $91 – an 83% reduction!  Are you interested yet?

So how much does it actually cost to install a commercial solar panel system? The price of buying and installing solar panels has declined a great deal in the last five years, making the economics of solar even more attractive. A variety of factors determines the cost of solar panel installations. The energy requirement of your business is the most important. The cost will also be influenced by the quality and attributes of the system installed. Not all solar panels are created equal.   While the specific cost of solar for your business depends on a number of factors, we are here to help.

Every industry and location is different when it comes to energy use. That means that the industrial energy solution for the building down the street might not be a solution for your location.

MORE WAYS TO REDUCE ENERGY COSTS THROUGH COMMERCIAL SOLAR INSTALLATION

The local and federal government provide a number of incentives for commercial property owners who are looking to install commercial solar.

For anyone interested in using solar panels at their business, this is one of most significant credits you can achieve. Owners of newly installed commercial solar panel systems get a federal tax credit for 30 percent of the cost of the system. (Some states also offer additional tax credits.)

  • Federal Solar Tax Credit: For anyone interested in using solar panels at their business, this is one of most significant credits you can achieve. Owners of newly installed commercial solar panel systems get a federal tax credit for 30 percent of the cost of the system. (Some states also offer additional tax credits.)
  • Accelerated depreciation: Businesses can deduct 85 percent of the value of the solar asset from their taxes, providing another significant offset to the upfront cost of a system array.
  • Performance-based incentives (PBIs): PBIs, including Renewable Energy Certificates, are a way for solar owners in some markets to receive payment from their utility for the solar electricity that their system generates. These incentives can be significant and greatly enhance financial returns for system owners over the life of the system.

EVEN MORE REASONS TO INSTALL COMMERCIAL SOLAR

In addition to the cost savings and tax benefits business owners receive from installing solar, there are other reasons to move forward with solar installation for your business or commercial property.  Here are some additional benefits.

Commercial Solar Provides Reliable and Maintenance-Free Energy

Solar energy systems require little to no maintenance. They panels are installed on a rack on the roof of your building and nothing moves.  In California where the weather is relatively calm year round, you can count on your solar panels to be easy to maintain and you will not encounter issues like you would in other regions with more extreme weather.

In addition to reliable equipment, most plans come with a warranty service that will allow you to contact one of our maintenance technicians to come out and repair any solar panels that might have gotten damaged or don’t work.  For more information, please contact us today to talk to a representative about how the maintenance plans work.

Business Solar Supports a Green Business Approach

Solar power systems derive clean, pure energy from the sun. Installing solar panels on your commercial property helps combat greenhouse gas emissions and reduces our collective dependence on fossil fuel. When fossil fuels are burned to produce electricity, they emit harmful gases that are the primary cause of air pollution and global climate change. Not only are fossil fuels bad for the environment, but they are also a finite resource. Because of this, the price is constantly fluctuating and can increase in a short period of time.

Renewable energy also improves public health. Coal and natural gas plants produce air and water pollution that is harmful to human health. But replacing fossil fuels with renewable energy sources, such as solar power, can reduce premature mortality as well as overall health care costs.

REVEL ENERGY PROVIDES COOL ROOFS INSTALLATION

In addition to the cost savings and tax benefits business owners receive from installing solar, there are other reasons to move forward with solar installation for your business or commercial property.  Here are some additional benefits.

What is a Cool Roof?

A roof which has been designed to absorb less heat and reflect more sunlight than standard roofs. They can be made out of a special highly reflective paint, sheet coverings, or highly reflective shingles or tiles. Nearly any type of building can benefit from having a cool roof!

Conventional roofs reach temperatures up to 150°F with the summer sun. A cool roof in the same conditions has the ability to stay more than 50°F cooler and will save you money and energy by using less air conditioning.

Benefits of Cool Roofs

The following are some benefits of cool roofs:

  • 10-15% reduction in your energy bill. Cool roofs reduce a building’s air conditioning needs.
  • Increase comfort in areas which do not have air conditioning. Such as garages or covered patios.
  • Decrease the temperature of the roof. This may extend your roof’s service life

Cool Roofs also Help:

  • Reduce the local air temperature.
  • Prevent power outages by lowering peak electricity demand.
  • Reduce power plant emissions (including CO2, sulfur dioxide, nitrous oxides, and mercury) by reduction in cooling energy in the building.
