Good for the Community and the Environment

Generating electricity from solar means less consumption of fossil fuels; reducing pollution and greenhouse gas emission from local power plants. By switching over to solar power your organization will be doing its part to combat global warming, and reduce our nation's dependence of foreign energy sources.

Take Advantage of Government Rebates and Tax Credits

Designed to encourage utility customers to generate their own solar power, these programs can pay for a significant portion of the total system cost.  Most government and non-profit organizations will not be able to take advantage of tax credits or accelerated depreciated. However, there are creative financing methods that can be employed to reduce the cost to the organization while allowing a 3rd party to take advantage of the tax incentives.

Protect Against Rising Utility Rates

If utility bills are a significant portion of your operating costs than large increases in electricity costs can affect the viability of your operation. Installing your own solar power can reduce or eliminate your exposure to rising electricity rates. The portion of your usage that is generated on site will no longer be subject to increases in electricity rates.

Reduce Operating Costs

A solar power system can reduce or eliminate your building's electric bill. Installing a solar power system is equivalent to prepaying for 40 years of power at a fraction of the cost you are currently paying. The cost/unit of energy you are currently paying is already higher than what you would be paying with solar. As rates increase this difference will only increase, leading to increased savings over the life of the system.

Low Maintenance Costs and Long-term Reliability

PV cells were originally developed for use in space, where repair is extremely expensive, if not impossible. PV still powers nearly every satellite circling the earth because it operates reliably for long periods of time with virtually no maintenance. Once installed our solar power systems requires little or no maintenance (especially if no batteries are used), and will provide electricity cleanly and quietly for 25 to 40 years. Our solar panels carry a 25-year manufacturer warranty on their production.
