A Long-Term Investment to Improve Your Bottom Line
Deciding to convert your business to solar power is a decision that should be made by weighing the pros with the cons. While solar is a long-term investment, it is an avenue that will improve your bottom line over time — a sustainable choice that has numerous benefits.
Benefit #1: Reduces Operating Costs
One of the main advantages is that providing less money to the local power company means more money in your pocket! For big and small businesses, solar panels will help reduce operating expenses which show on the balance sheet each month. The financial savings (and reassurance) alone will more than pay off the investment over the lifespan of the solar system. In addition, having your own private power production (AKA- the sun) will allow for a consistent energy supply, at a fraction of the price.
Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to predict your operating costs each month and bank on a consistent energy bill? With solar panels, your budgeting just got easier, and so did the costs to operate your business.
Benefit #2: Tax Credits
When you install solar, your business benefits from the federal tax credit and incentive plan! That’s right…the government will provide a 26% rebate on the overall cost of your solar power system. On top of that, there is also an accelerated depreciation that allows you to claim a large portion of your solar power system in the first year to get a greater immediate return on your investment. With solar panels installation costs falling more than 70% over the last decade, solar has become more affordable than ever, and the tax benefits show that the state and federal governments support the move towards clean and efficient power.
Benefit #3: Highly Reliable (with low maintenance)
Commercial solar panels are easily installed, virtually maintenance-free and built to withstand rain, wind, hail, and snow. While most solar panels will work seamlessly for 25-40 years, many carry a 25-year warranty to showcase the quality of their product. That translates into a reliable energy source for your business that shareholders and the community can get behind.
Benefit #4: Improves Your Brand
Your commitment to clean energy will be on display and earn you a “Green” Brand label. Going green can serve as a great PR and marketing tool to show that your company is making environmentally responsible choices. Your consumer will see your dedication to the local community and your commitment to providing clean energy. Like a fine suit or snazzy black dress, customers are attracted to businesses dedicated to sustainability.
