You’ll wish you did it sooner.
Not only is solar appealing to more sustainably-minded customers, but it’s also a great investment for your business. Some of the incredible financial incentives include:
• Cash flow positive in 5-7 years
• 300% average return on investment
• Save $10-40K/year on your electric bill
“We’re committed to our customers not only to brew the best quality beers we can, but to take leadership in addressing our climate challenges, too. Going solar was a natural step. We chose SunCommon as our solar partner because we wanted to work with a company who is invested in our community, and who shares our BCorp values. It has been an absolute pleasure working with them.”
—Jen Kimmich, Founder of The Alchemist Brewery
How to save up to 50% on commercial solar.
Commercial solar systems can draw on several sources for savings: the federal tax credit, federal accelerated depreciation, and individual state incentives. These discounts can translate to recouping nearly half of the cost of your system in the first year of install, and recovering the entire cost within five years. That means decades of free electricity and energy independence.
We’re NYSERDA Quality Installers
Our installation team was recently awarded with the 2020 NYSERDA Quality Solar Installer Award. Hiring a NYSERDA Quality Solar Installer means you’re choosing an installer who exceeds annual quality assurance criteria backed by NYS and consistently provides top tier performance and quality.
Safe Harbor Your Solar Tax Credit Savings
Federal and state income tax incentives are currently 26% and 6.2% of project costs. For projects that are placed in service after December 31, 2020, those incentives drop to 22% and 5.3%. Depending on permitting and project timelines, if you choose to sign an agreement and place a deposit soon we can either install or begin installing the project in 2020 to secure the higher incentives or “Safe Harbor” a portion of the project equipment this year. That means that even if we install your project in 2021, you can get the higher 2020 tax incentive rates.
We’ve helped over 200 businesses across New York and Vermont go solar.
