Why Solar?

Your Bottom Line.

An investment in solar allows you to take control of your energy costs and leverage incentives. The 26% Solar tax Credit, MACRS depreciation and utility incentive programs make the financials behind solar even more attractive.

Your Energy Bill.

Solar provides a locked & affordable energy rate, protecting your organization from rate hikes. As electricity costs continue to rise, your savings increase – allowing for predictable financial forecasting and reliable savings.

Your Sustainability Goals. 

Whether you’re taking steps toward a greener supply chain, achieving LEED certification, or simply want to do your part in reducing emissions, solar can compliment and contribute to your organization’s sustainability goals. 

Your Planet.

An investment in solar is an investment in our planet. Solar helps improve air quality, reduce water pollution, and will help reduce your carbon footprint – while resonating with stakeholders who value sustainable practices.
