A large number of companies all over the world are increasingly looking up to commercial solar energy to power their business. The most apparent reason for this transition is savings – mainly saving on electricity bill . If your business is suffering from hefty utility prices, turning to solar is one of the easiest ways to protect dwindling profit margins. But the advantages of installing solar photovoltaic (PV) panels don’t stop there.
Why businesses Should turn to Commercial Solar Energy
Lower utility bills (and operational costs) is a certainly major benefit. But by outfitting your business with solar technology, you also benefit from the
1. A Lower Carbon Footprint
Because solar panels don’t pollute, they help to protect the environment. This alone is a pretty powerful benefit. But solar panels also protect your business as well. California currently leads the way in environmental regulation, and the state’s enforcement will only become stricter in the years to come. With solar panels installed on your business, you can avoid having to pay punitive fines and tariffs down the road.
2. Pricing Predictability
Utility rates change all the time. But solar electricity prices remain fixed – often for decades. When you know what your energy bills will be 5, 10, or even 20 years in the future, you can make better-informed decisions about how to allocate limited resources.
3. Tax Benefits & Depreciation
Solar is not an expense. It’s an asset – one that confers lucrative tax benefits to commercial system owners. Take advantage of depreciation and protect your bottom line. With a little-known auditing loophole called cost segregation, you can even accelerate your PV system’s depreciation and reap larger savings in the process.
4. Commercial Solar Incentives
The government wants you to go solar and is fully prepared to help finance your system if that’s what it takes. From tax credits to cash rebates, there is a ton of free money to help you make the transition. But as with most types of incentives, these subsidies won’t be around forever. If you don’t use this money, your competitors most certainly will.
5. Corporate Social Responsibility
Want free marketing? Solar panels will generate way more positive awareness of your company than any advertising campaign ever could. Demonstrate to customers that you’re a responsible corporate citizen who cares about the future of this planet. And watch your profits soar.
