    Commercial SOLAR INCENTIVES & Benefits

    Your business is already a great candidate for solar. Most business owners are unaware of the direct and indirect benefits of investing in a solar array. Here is the breakdown:

    30% Federal Tax Credit
    The Investment Tax Credit (ITC) provides your business a 30% tax credit for the total cost of the system if construction completed in 2022. We recommend consulting with your tax professional to see how this can benefit your business.
    Illinois Solar Renewable Energy Credits (SREC's)
    The passing of the Illinois Climate and Equitable Jobs Act commits the state to produce 40% of its electricity from renewable energy by 2030. Illinois offers SREC's, which has monetary value for system production. An SREC is awarded for every 1,000kWh produced for the 15 Year program and the value will be paid in advance of system production.
    Depreciation is a tax incentive that allows a business to immediately deduct a large percentage of the purchase price of eligible assets, such as machinery, rather than write them off over the "useful life" of that asset.
    ComEd DG Rebate, aka “Smart Inverter Rebate”
    The DG Rebate is valued at $250/kW DC nameplate system size and it’s available only to commercial projects in the ComEd territory. Caveats associated, so please ask us if this would be a good fit for your business.
    Net Energy Metering (NEM)
    aka “Net Metering” is a program which allows your overproduction (typically in the summer months) credits to be applied to months with lower production (typically in the winter).
    Surface Area
    Commercial buildings have unused and unobstructed "roof real estate".  Why let this area sit dormant when it could be put to good use? 
    Reduce Operating Expenses
    A commercial solar system can drastically reduce your operating expenses by eliminating a large and unpredictable utility bill.
    Low Maintenance
    Once a system is installed, there is minimal maintenance.  Most of the components have manufacturer warranties for the next 10-30 years, so there is comfort in knowing this system will be supported for a very long time.
    Consumers are continually seeking environmentally friendly products from organizations with sustainable practices. If operations and manufacturing are powered by commercial solar panels, you are now differentiated from the competition in more ways than one.
