Why Businesses in North Texas Are Going Solar at a Record Pace
The price of commercial solar panel systems has dropped rapidly over the past five years, and in many areas the cost of solar electricity is lower than buying energy from the utility.
Companies are finding that customers prefer to buy from businesses that demonstrate a commitment to green initiatives. Few investments provide more tangible proof of support for the environment than a solar panel system.
An investment in solar panels typically results in an immediate increase in enterprise value equal to or greater than the investment itself, through a demonstrable increase in company profits.
Is Solar Right for Your Business?
Our team of experts will help you determine whether a solar panel installation makes sense for you..
Ownership of Your Building
It is easy to install solar if you own your own building. If you happen to rent, you'll need landlord approval, and you probably won't save money if your lease is less than ten years.
If your company has cash, or an existing debt instrument, then it's full speed ahead. If you are looking for other financing, we can help with that too.
To optimize energy output, the site should be relatively unshaded and have as much uninterrupted roof or ground space as possible. Bigger systems save more money!
The higher your electric rate and energy usage, the more you can save. Solar makes the most sense if your electric rate is greater than 5 cents per kWh.
*Please note that we can only install a system if we have an agreement with the property owner. If you lease your building, we’ll need to get your landlord’s approval in addition to yours.
