The average energy offset from a commercial solar installation is around 75%. Saving money on energy costs means your business can lower operating expenses and improve its bottom line. While every business is different the savings from a solar investment lasts in the long term- thus taking advantage of ‘free- energy’ for your business.
The Commercial Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC) allows businesses to take advantage of a 26% deduction of the cost of their solar project investment as a credit against their federal tax liability. The tax credit steps down at the end of 2020, so the time is now to take advantage of the full 26%.
More and more business are adopting a ‘green’ initiative within their business model. Solar for your business as an investment shows that you are on the forefront of technology and have adopted an environmentally responsible approach for your business.
