Commercial Solar Panel Facts & Resources

Commonly Asked Questions

Why Businesses Go Solar

More and more corporations are choosing to go solar not only because of what they “give back” environmentally but for what they “get back” financially. Here are some of the many benefits of a commercial solar photovoltaic system:

Attractive ROI

Commercial solar projects can deliver fantastic long-term investment returns for businesses with positive internal rates of return and a predictable intake of cash. In addition to dramatic reductions in your company’s ongoing electricity costs, in many cases, a commercial solar project can generate incremental revenue, effectively creating a new profit center.

Often, to encourage businesses to invest in a solar panel system, federal, state and local governments offer rebates and beneficial incentives. Effective utilization of available incentive programs can dramatically reduce the upfront cost of solar while providing a predictable long-term revenue stream.

Prices are highly volatile and difficult to predict. In fact, historically, the cost of electricity has increased at a compound annual growth rate more than 5%. By generating your own clean electricity onsite, you eliminate your company’s exposure to such price volatility.

Marketing and Public Relations Benefits

Solar conversion will position your business as a forward-thinking, environmental leader. Your customers, employees, vendors, shareholders and neighbors will be fully aware of your corporate commitment to the environment and your local community. 

Go Green...and Red, White, and Blue

A business that converts to solar not only reduces their carbon footprint, they promote U.S. energy independence, helping to decrease America’s need for foreign energy.

Take Control

Your business can make the change from those monthly dreaded electric bills by switching to solar power. Generous state and federal incentives, such as the solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC), make commercial solar panel installations a much more affordable proposition than they were even just a few years ago. To reduce operating costs and increase profitability, many businesses throughout Denver are embracing the move to solar energy.
