Why Choose Solar Energy

Apart from the obvious environmental benefits, solar power is a proven, cost-effective way for business owners to take control of utility bills and free themselves from volatile energy prices. And since the sun’s power is an abundant resource that’s relatively simple to harness, photovoltaic (PV) technology is one of the fastest growing power options in the world.

Consider the advantages of transitioning to solar for part or all of your facility’s power needs:

  • Clean, solar-produced electricity is a viable replacement for coal or oil-produced power. It does not endanger human health, does not deplete the earth’s natural resources—and does not release pollutants into the atmosphere. In addition, it’s much quieter and less obtrusive than “traditional” energy sources.
  • While there is an initial investment required to install a solar power system, it is a cost-efficient way of powering your plant, factory or facility. Businesses are often eligible for a combination of federal and state energy tax credits, which help to offset PV cost.
  • Contrary to popular belief, solar electric systems don’t have to be an eyesore. Today’s manufacturers are focused on the curb appeal of their photovoltaic panels, and offer a range of options designed to blend with the architectural style of any structure.
  • Solar energy systems are easy and cost-effective to maintain, since few cords, wires and moving parts are required.
  • Solar power has a long history of reliability, and most PV panels come with comprehensive warranties of up to 25 years.
  • Choosing solar power indicates your organization’s commitment to renewable, sustainable energy solutions.   
  • Solar electricity and thermal systems help your business become less dependent upon expensive, imported fossil fuels—so you’ll save money and protect the environment!
  • Solar power systems tie into your existing utility connections, and can be adapted to meet virtually any energy need, no matter what the size and scope. In addition, PV power modules can be added over time, in the event that you renovate or build onto your facility.
  • Since the sun’s rays are everywhere, solar power is available in nearly every geographic region, regardless of climate.
