If you want to save money on your electricity bills by switching to a solar-powered electrical system, you need to understand what that means for your commercial building. You should partner with a solar installer who can help you assess the different solar energy options for your commercial building. Let’s examine how Verogy’s commercial and industrial solar services can help you transition your facility to a solar energy system.
When you invest in a solar system for your facility, you have several installation options. You could install your solar array on open land if you have some available on or near your campus. If you want to install a ground-mounted solar array, your solar developer can help you assess the open land you want to use. Ground-mounted solar panels should be mounted in a clear space that gets plenty of sunlight and isn’t blocked by trees. If your facility doesn’t have clear, open land nearby, you can install your solar panels on your building’s roof or a carport roof, if your facility has one. Building and carport roofs are good fits for solar panel installations because they are flat and generally provide a clear, open space that your business already owns. When you partner with Verogy, we can help you assess these options and determine which one best fits your solar project’s needs.
When you begin developing your solar project, you also have to choose between several financing options. For example, you’ll have to choose who will own your solar array. You can purchase it outright and own it directly, or you can choose third-party ownership. If you own your solar array directly, you can purchase it with cash or a solar loan, and you become eligible for certain state and local tax credits. You also become eligible for incentive programs such as net metering. If you choose third-party ownership, your solar installer owns the solar array, and you purchase its energy through either a solar lease or a power purchase agreement (PPA). Verogy can help you determine which of these financing and ownership options best fits your solar budget and your facility’s energy needs.
Installing solar panels for your commercial building helps improve your facility’s energy efficiency. It decreases your carbon footprint and your reliance on fossil fuels. Additionally, it can also reduce the amount of energy your facility needs to operate effectively. It also reduces your reliance on your utility company and allows you to generate electricity for your facility. Then, when you generate excess energy, you can send that energy to your local energy grid and give back to your community. Overall, a solar energy system helps you take advantage of clean energy and make it work for your commercial facility.
