Financing Options

Financing Solar Projects

Several financing options are available for commercial solar projects:

  • Power Purchase Agreements (PPA): You agree to purchase the electricity generated by a solar system installed on your property at a set price, which is usually lower than the utility rate.
  • Roof lease: You lease your roof space to a solar provider who installs and maintains the solar system, and you benefit from the energy produced at a lower cost.
  • Equipment loans: Similar to traditional loans, where you borrow money to purchase and own the solar system outright.
  • Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy (CPACE): Financing that allows property owners to finance the upfront cost of energy improvements and pay the costs back over time through a voluntary assessment on their property tax bill.

Tax Credits & Incentives

The federal solar investment tax credit currently covers 30% of costs for commercial solar systems, plus additional state/local solar incentives.

Financial Modeling

Our interactive scenario models forecast solar investment costs, tax credits, incentives, ROI projections and more based on your solar energy needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Have a question? Here are some of the most frequently asked questions of our team.

The financial benefits of installing a commercial solar system include significant reductions in electricity bills, protection against rising energy costs, and increased property value. Businesses can also benefit from various tax incentives and rebates that reduce the initial cost of installation. Additionally, solar power can provide a predictable energy cost, which helps in budgeting and financial planning.

The ROI for a commercial solar installation varies based on several factors including the cost of the system, financing, energy savings, and incentives. Typically, commercial solar installations have an ROI period of 3 to 7 years, with returns over the life of the system often exceeding 20%. After recovering the initial investment, the savings on utility bills translate directly into increased profits.

Several financing options are available for commercial solar projects:

  • Power Purchase Agreements (PPA): You agree to purchase the electricity generated by a solar system installed on your property at a set price, which is usually lower than the utility rate.
  • Roof lease: You lease your roof space to a solar provider who installs and maintains the solar system, and you benefit from the energy produced at a lower cost.
  • Equipment loans: Similar to traditional loans, where you borrow money to purchase and own the solar system outright.
  • Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy (CPACE): Financing that allows property owners to finance the upfront cost of energy improvements and pay the costs back over time through a voluntary assessment on their property tax bill.

Incentives vary by location but generally include federal tax credits such as the Investment Tax Credit (ITC) which allows you to deduct a significant percentage of the installation cost from your federal taxes. Many states and local governments also offer additional incentives like rebates, property tax exemptions, and grants. Utility companies may offer incentives in the form of rebates or performance-based incentives.

Non-profit and other non-taxable entities cannot directly benefit from tax credits because they do not have taxable income. However, they can benefit indirectly through third-party ownership arrangements like a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA), where the third party can utilize the tax credit and pass the savings on to the non-profit in the form of lower electricity rates.

The Inflation Reduction Act enhances the benefits of the Investment Tax Credit (ITC), increasing it and extending its availability. It also introduces additional bonuses for projects that meet certain domestic production criteria or are installed in energy communities. These enhancements make solar projects more financially attractive and feasible.

The expected lifespan of solar panels is generally around 25 to 30 years, although they can continue to function beyond this period at reduced efficiency. Other components, such as inverters, may have shorter lifespans and might need replacement during the life of the solar system.

Commercial solar power systems require minimal maintenance, primarily involving routine cleaning and periodic checks to ensure that all components are functioning correctly. The associated costs are generally low, especially compared to the maintenance costs for other forms of power generation.

The size of the solar system needed depends on several factors, including the energy consumption of the business, the available space for installing panels, and the geographic location. A detailed energy audit and site analysis are usually conducted to determine the optimal system size that will meet the energy needs.

The environmental benefits of installing commercial solar panels include reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, decreased dependency on fossil fuels, and a smaller carbon footprint. Solar power is a clean and renewable energy source that contributes to sustainable business practices.

The installation process starts with a site assessment and energy needs analysis, followed by system design and securing permits. Once everything is in place, the physical installation of the panels typically takes a few days to a few weeks, depending on the size of the system. The entire process from planning to completion can take several months.
