Why Are Businesses Choosing Solar Energy?
The main reason businesses are choosing solar may not be what you think.
Some businesses go solar because it helps achieve environmental goals, reductions in carbon emissions, and target LEED certifications–and these are very good reasons. However, the most compelling reason businesses choose to install a solar energy system is because it makes good financial sense to do so.
Benefits & Incentives of Adding Solar to Your Business
The homeowner has many options available to control electrical costs. You can purchase the PV system outright, finance a percentage of it, or finance the entire solar energy system. No matter which route you choose to go, here are some of the benefits:
Transform a monthly cost into a performing asset for the next 25 + years
+4* year return on investment, typically, depending on your individual financial factors*
Save on operating expenses at no expense to the environment
Capital allocation may enhance your tax position via 26% federal tax credit, depreciation models like Modified Accelerated Cost Recovery System (MACRS), or Section 179 *
Public relations advantages to being a clean energy company
Potential access to a 25% USDA grant for businesses in rural areas*
*Ask your accountant if any others apply - ROI dependent on rate structure and usage
How It Works
PV Cells Absorb Sunlight That Creates Electric Energy.
An Inverter Converts Direct Current into Alternating Current.
Power Flows from the Inverter to Your Structure’s Power System.
Reduce Taxable Income, Gain Control of Energy Costs, Reduce Your Carbon Footprint!
Invest in Solar
With utility rates increasing and operating budgets receiving more scrutiny than ever, businesses are using solar to turn otherwise non-performing assets such as rooftops and undeveloped land into energy-saving, self-generating solar energy investments.
Plus by developing solar assets at prime business location(s), self-generation allows them to not only mitigate the emissions produced through business operations, but it also stabilizes electricity costs and adds to the bottom line for decades to come. A properly engineered solar array works much like a 25-35-year annuity except it is not affected by economic upturns and downturns. Rather, its performance is based on the sun’s rays.
You can control most aspects of your business; so, why not electricity?
Your business may benefit from the financial advantages* that solar can provide
In just 10 seconds, the sun provides over 10,000 times the amount of energy required to provide the world’s total combined energy use.

What Our Clients Are Saying
“They installed a 10k system on my business and a 5k system on my home. Both installations went well and are producing roughly what Creative Solar predicted.”

“If you want to learn more and/ or are considering investing in residential, talk to folk who know what’s going on and who provide wonderful care and service. The Creative Solar team will help you understand what’s going on and find the best solution for you. I had a wonderful experience; great knowledge and personal care; no pressure at all; and support during what turned out (with some issues we encountered around a battery) to be an extended process. I can’t say enough good things!”
- Gareth Young
“Glad to say, my system has been installed and is on line and there hasn’t been a single day that my electric meter hasn’t run in reverse. So, in conclusion, I highly recommend Creative Solar for all the above reasons, based on my experience with them. And when I’m ready to add a Generac unit to my clean energy system, Creative Solar can expect to get yet another call, from me!”
- Eric Byas
“I participated in the Solarize Carrollton Campaign this past year. I felt comfortable that Creative Solar had been vetted by local engineers at Carroll EMC and Southwire. However, I was still pleasantly surprised at their professionalism, communication and attention to details. They asked me what I wanted, helped me understand the process, and gave an accurate estimate of the cost. I feel proud that I am helping the environment at a level that I could afford. I could not be more pleased with their work. My salesperson was Chaia Lewis. She was awesome, and if she didn’t know the answer, she found someone who did.”
- Gerald Word
“Creative Solar has installed our 4,75 KW Solar system in May 2019. They have excellent installation and service staff. My electricity bills are reduced as you can see here. I also like the Enlighten Solar dashboard that provides good Production and consumption information. Love my solar panels.”
