Rooftop Solar Systems
A rooftop commercial solar energy system is a smart investment for many businesses. By generating your own energy it not only saves money but it also protects your organization against future energy rate hikes.
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
3-5-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
If your building is like most industrial, warehouse, agricultural, retail and manufacturing facilities, a rooftop solar panel system is a perfect fit because of the large amount of surface area and unused space provided by the roof. A large number of commercial buildings have large, flat roofs with plenty of space for mounting photovoltaic panels. Installing a solar energy system can help turn your existing roof from an expense to a revenue-generating asset.
Once you switch to photovoltaic power, your business will be eligible for a 26% federal tax credit that can save you thousands. Solar will also help to increase your property value and present a positive PR opportunity that can bring in new customers.
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.”
- Sean Butler
“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.”
