Solar Information


Thinking about getting solar for your business? Panels can increase the value of your commercial property as well as save on your electricity bills. Let us show you how in this easy guide to getting a business solar system.

Solar technology has come a long way in the past several years. The short- and long-term affordability has greatly improved for residences and businesses alike. If you have considered solar panels in the past but weren’t convinced of their value, it is time to reconsider.

They say a dollar saved is a dollar earned, but with solar, a dollar saved is more than a dollar earned. Solar power can not only negate your energy bill. but you can also be paid for the excess energy your equipment harnesses with what is called a Feed-In Tariff. Solar panels can also increase the value of your commercial property as well as attract customers who strive to support green companies.
