Why should businesses go solar?

Commercial solar panels are a smart investment to lower your tax liability, reduce your operating expenses, and further your sustainability goals and marketing efforts. For many businesses, solar is primarily a financial decision. The cost of solar installation is partially offset by federal and local incentives including tax credits, depreciation, grants such as the Rural Energy for America Program (REAP) managed by the USDA, and rebates. An investment in commercial solar power provides a strong internal rate of return (IRR) and a more favorable payback period than most residential systems.

Partner with the number one solar contractor in Texas for a hassle-free commercial solar power system installation. We offer attractive financing options, including new in-house financing, that combine with tax credits, depreciation, and local rebates to maximize your return on investment and shorten your payback period

What is commercial solar CubeSmart.jpg

What is commercial solar?

The principles behind commercial solar power systems are similar to residential systems but on a larger scale and typically with better financial returns. Solar panels are typically installed on the rooftop, either ballasted or mounted depending on the roof type, on the ground, or on a shade structure in a parking lot or parking garage.

Systems are low maintenance with lifetime warranties, depending on the solar panel and inverter manufacturer. Freedom Solar offers a 25-year workmanship warranty for all of our commercial solar energy systems.

Once installed, your grid-tied solar power system will generate power that is converted to alternating current at the inverter and then fed into your service panel, where it will power your facility. The grid will still provide the additional power required to meet your load, and any power produced by your solar system that exceeds your usage will be returned to the grid. Utilities offer net metering to credit your account for the excess power you generate.

Who should consider commercial solar Austin Subaru.jpg

Who should consider commercial solar?

Growing numbers of businesses in the United States are seeing the financial and environmental benefits of solar energy, leading to a record 3.5 gigawatts of projects under contract as of August 2018. Companies such as Walmart, Kohl’s, and Amazon are leading the way, with growth across many corporate sectors.

You must own the building or property and have a large unobstructed area on the roof or grounds. For rooftop solar, your roof should be in good condition. The financial payback for solar is especially compelling if you have higher electrical loads during the day and/or the summer and a passthrough ownership structure with significant tax liability.

The benefits of solar include:

  • Reduced operating costs thanks to thousands of dollars of savings on monthly electricity bills
  • Lower tax liability with the federal solar investment tax credit (ITC) and accelerated depreciation
  • High internal rate of return on a long-term warrantied asset
  • Hedge against rising energy costs
  • Marketing and PR opportunities related to sustainability efforts and a lower carbon footprint

Solar may not make as much financial sense for companies with shaded facilities, a roof or electrical service that requires repair or upgrade, or who do not have the capital to invest in a system upfront. Financing options are available but typically require a down payment of at least 30 percent.
