How Property Owners & Developers Capitalize on Commercial Solar

As electricity rates rise higher than ever recorded, commercial developers and property owners have the opportunity to increase their building’s net operating income – while reducing those future energy costs with a commercial solar solution. With expected changes to incentives, energy code compliance and utility programs like Net Energy Metering, now is the time to consider commercial solar as a solution to save cash and add value back into your properties.

Commercial solar adds building value while increasing net operating income by generating free electricity that is sold back to the tenant. This exchange can result in a “win-win” by selling electricity to the tenant at reduced cost while still generating positive cash flow for the property owner or developer. 

Triple-Net or Full Service Gross Lease Types

Depending on the type of lease, triple-net or full-service gross leases, the program is structured differently. Software is available to easily track and allocate costs or payments for multiple meters.

  • Through a triple-net lease, the tenant would pay the landlord directly for their energy consumed.
  • Through a full-service gross lease, you are already paying the electricity bill, so the landlord is able to reduce that bill, resulting in lower operating expenses.

Social & Financial Incentives That Come With Commercial Solar

Energy-efficient “smart buildings” are more marketable and more competitive in their industries, as more businesses look to employ more sustainable practices.

Incentives like the Solar Investment Tax Credit, Depreciation, and SGIP are available and have helped many businesses capitalize on the benefits commercial solar provides.

Upcoming Energy Code Mandates

Looking forward, the 2023 Building Energy Efficiency Standards will require solar and energy storage on many new and renovated commercial structures. This supplements requirements that took effect in 2020 mandating new single-family homes and multifamily dwellings up to three stories high include solar as well.

Potential Changes to Net Energy Metering (NEM 3)

Potential changes to Net Energy Metering (NEM 3) are expected to reduce the value of solar generation exported back to the grid and increase payback periods with monthly “grid benefits” charges. New systems built after the final decision will unfortunately be hindered by this program change, but there is still time before the end of 2021 to grandfather your building into the current version of the program (NEM 2).
