Good for your Community

+
Clean & Green
Solar panels are fueled by the sun, have no moving parts, create no noise, and produce no emissions or harmful byproducts - only clean electricity.
+
Reduce emissions and improve local air quality
Unlike our conventional energy generation systems - which are a key source of pollution, chronic health conditions, and global warming – your onsite solar system will reduce Greenhouse Gas emissions and improve local air quality in your community

Increases Your Cashflow

+
Reduce your Electricity Costs
Decrease your monthly utility costs by generating solar electricity for less than it costs to buy electricity from your local utility.
+
Protect Against Rising Energy Prices
When you generate your own electricity, you are protected from rising energy costs and inflation since the price of solar energy is predetermined for the life of the system.
+
Benefit from Solar Incentives
The most significant incentive is the 30 percent Investment Tax Credit (ITC), which is a dollar-for-dollar reduction in income taxes. Furthermore, many jurisdictions offer additional solar incentives, including cash grants and performance-based Renewable Energy Credits (RECs).
+
Reduce your Taxes
For-profit companies can benefit from another significant income tax deduction that allows them to depreciate the capital investment in their solar system on an accelerated schedule. This helps our customers invest in themselves, rather than their utility.
+
Sell Excess Solar Energy

Most utility companies provide a credit on your bill for the excess energy your system generates that your building doesn’t need (for example, solar generated on weekends). This is called Net Metering.
