Studies prove that that commercial buildings and residential homes with solar systems have higher property values and sell more quickly — sometimes twice as fast as non-solar buildings. And with the solar revolution taking off, solar-equipped buildings will be in greater demand. Note: Adding a solar system will not increase your property taxes.
Businesses and nonprofits can benefit from the recently extended Solar Investment Tax Credit, which allows a 30% federal tax credit if you build a system by the end of 2019. Your savings are even greater since businesses can depreciate 85% of the purchase costs of a solar installation purchase price over six years. Most of the depreciation can be taken in the first year and all of it within 5 years.
Going solar is affordable for just about any organization, even if you can’t afford the full cost upfront. Beyond commercial loans, there are zero-down financing options, leasing opportunities, government-supported PACE loans, and Power Purchase Agreements. Contact Sandbar Solar to learn what option might be right for your business.
You’re sending a positive message about sustainability and support for the community, country, and planet with the installation of a solar system. Think of the great PR you generate every time customers, employees, neighbors, shareholders, and journalists see solar energy panels on your property. Go solar to protect the environment and improve how everyone in the community sees your company.
