Power Electric & Mechanical Contractor Inc. – Solar Energy Systems

Solar Energy Systems - Solar panel arrays

Solar Energy is produced using photovoltaic cells (PV) arranged as or in solar panels. Silently, they convert light or Solar Energy into electricity and is an abundant and reliable resource. Today, Solar Energy has never been more affordable; in fact Solar PV prices have dropped considerably over the last several years such that they are approaching “grid parity” meaning Solar Energy is now comparable with fossil fuel as a means of generating electricity.

Volatile utility rates, more frequent utility outages and grid dependence are becoming increasing concerns to businesses and consumers alike. So why wouldn’t one look into the option of installing Solar Energy panels on a business or home to reduce and/or eliminate the dependence on a deteriorating grid system as well as the upwardly moving price of electricity? With decreased and stabilized panel prices, federal, state and local incentives along with flexible financing options available today, you’ll see why the time to switch to Solar Energy systems is now.

Power Electric & Mechanical Contractor Inc. will work with you to determine a customized solar system fitting the energy needs and budget of your home or business. Whether you are seeking a Solar Energy electric system or a Solar Energy hot water system, Power Electric & Mechanical Contractor Inc. guides you through the solar process from the initial design and engineering, financing options, installation, service & maintenance.

Commercial Solar Energy Systems

Your company can save a significant amount of money by reducing or eliminating your current electric bill with a new commercial Solar Energy system. The exact ROI of your Solar Energy system will ultimately be determined by your utility’s rebate level; your appetite for tax credits and the net system price. Today most businesses, big and small are reaching out to third parties as a means of alternatives to an outright purchase of a Solar Energy system thereby conserving their cash for business operations while benefiting from their newly installed Solar Energy system.

Financing Solar Energy Systems

Typically, for commercial applications above 200KW, a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) allows larger organizations to completely eliminate the upfront capital costs associated with a Solar Energy system installation. In a PPA the business ONLY pays for the electricity derived from the Solar Energy system. The solar equipment, the installation, the monitoring and any ongoing maintenance is paid for by the third party. Additionally, a PPA arrangement allows you to reduce your carbon emissions and lock you into long term, predictably priced power rates for the life of the agreement. Imagine, having the security of locking in your company’s electric rates for the next 15, 20, or even 25 years depending on the agreement.

Another alternative to an outright purchase is through a commercial lease program. Again, in many cases leasing of a Solar Energy system can free up cash for other capital investments while the business still pays less each month than its current electric bill. Eventually, the business can purchase the Solar Energy system (if it chooses) after six to ten years or more depending on the lease agreement at fair market value.

Here are several reasons to consider a commercial lease agreement:

Low or No Down Payment
The opportunity to have no out-of-pocket costs once again may be available depending on the leasing company. Also the Lessee may choose to make Low Down Payment to reduce the monthly payment.

Optimal Use of Federal and State Energy Tax Benefits
Federal Solar Energy tax credits and accelerated depreciation lower the lease payment.

Renewable Energy Credits (REC’s)
All applicable and available credits benefit the client’s account.

Fixed Payments for the Lease Term
Fixed monthly lease payments represent a significant hedge against rising utility rates.

Savings
Solar provides enormous savings over paying high utility rates both immediately and over the long term – ask the leasing company to see a lease cash flow comparison for your situation.
