You have probably heard that several large corporations like Wal-Mart and Target have gone all in on solar, but it is no longer just the biggest companies in the world taking advantage of the benefits of renewable energy.
Many small to mid-sized businesses across the Sacramento region are now enjoying the benefits of commercial solar. Solar can be a strategic investment that pays for itself and potentially even draws in more customers.
Any type of business – from office building solar, affordable housing solar, multi-family building solar – can save hundreds, maybe even thousands of dollars a month on their electricity bill. With such savings, many businesses can expect the panels to pay for themselves in less than 10 years (depending on the size of the system).
To top it off, some current and potential customers may even decide to do business with you if they are aware that you are an environmentally conscious company. Not to mention that employees often take pride in working for a company that is forward thinking and innovative.
In addition, the Solar Investment Tax Credit is still available to many commercial solar customers, which is a 30 percent federal tax credit.
A solar system can be added to a company’s roof, or it can be ground-mounted. If the facility has a carport, it can also be installed on top of it. To determine how large of a system your business can install, it would be necessary for Aztec Solar to analyze your current power needs (a review of your electricity bills) and compare that to your utility rates, how much sunlight your facility gets every day and how much space you have for panels.
It is important to work with a solar company with a good reputation for quality products, good customer service and strong ethics. You get all of that when you go with Aztec Solar, which has been doing solar and only solar for nearly four decades in the Sacramento region. We stay up to date on all of the important safety and product regulations and make sure to meet local regulatory guidelines.
Considering our CEO, Ed Murray, is the president of the California Solar and Storage Association and serves on the Consumer Protection Committee of the Solar Energy Industries Association, it goes without saying that we take solar ethics seriously.
