The Business Case
Financially it is a no brainer. With Arizona’s current 1 to 1 net metering rate the ROI for solar projects is often under 8 years. As the life of solar panels is usually around 25 years (depending on manufacturer) that is 17 years of your organization making huge savings on your energy bill. In addition to savings solar will provide you with a long-term, stable energy price shielding you from the unpredictable and volatile prices of fossil fuels. Therefore providing you with the confidence to produce accurate long-term financial plans, allowing your organization to grow.
Incorporating solar into your commercial building can offer you significant tax breaks, reduce property taxes and potential rebates to help with construction costs (contact us about what’s available). Furthermore research shows that solar can add value to your property. Resale value can increase by $20,000 for every $1000 in annual electricity savings due to its increased economic and operational efficiency.
An additional benefit of commercial solar is the improved public perception of your business and improved CSR. No matter what business you’re in, your reputation matters. While more businesses are beginning to appreciate the virtues of going green, “eco-conscious” businesses are still in the minority. Therefore, the decision to install solar power on your building will automatically differentiate you from competitors. More than anything, it represents a commitment to quality, care and operational efficiency, as well as the environment. By marketing your building as “green,” you’re also likely to attract publicity. Soon you’ll be known as a leader, an innovator, and an environmentally responsible corporate neighbor.
