Commercial Solar Solutions
Small Businesses See Big Impact
Small business owners often find themselves in a predicament whereby they pay the highest electricity rates compared to larger, more industrial companies and sometimes even residential customers. However, these small businesses may also see the biggest financial impact to their cash-flow when investing in a solar electric system. If you have rooftop space, land area, or carport space, you have an unused area that can help offset your operational expenditures. Power your business and reduce your monthly electricity overhead.
Solar is Strategic for Big Businesses
Big companies are finally beginning to see the light. The average price of completing a commercial photovoltaic project has dropped more than 45 percent since 2012, while average electricity rates have gone up more than 20 percent in the past 10 years.
Over the past two years, top corporations in the U.S. have more than doubled their capacity to produce solar electricity. Retail stores generally have large roofs and vast energy needs. Those two factors, plus the desire for sustainability and good publicity, present opportunities for solar companies.
“When you consider carbon emissions reduced in those dramatic terms, you begin to comprehend the significant effect of a green project, such as the solar installation of our solar carports by Sunworks. We couldn’t be more pleased with our partnership. Our residents not only desire all the best amenities in an active adult community, they also seek to belong to a place that is environmentally conscious.
We are doing something that will have a positive impact for the next 40 years. It is estimated Sun City Lincoln Hills will generate 75 % of our electricity needs from solar. The reduction in carbon footprint is equivalent to 277,791 trees planted.”
