Why commercial solar is good for your building

Greg Sheppard, chief research officer for PV at market intelligence firm HIS offers his six reasons:

• commercial solar panel rices have dropped enough to be financially advantageous.

• Your business can lock in lower electricity costs.

• Your business can then have more predictable electricity costs.

• You might not need any upfront capital.

• Many utilities need to hit RPS (renewable portfolio standard) goals and, in some cases, lower "peak time" generation costs.

• A commercial solar energy system so can help your company achieve sustainability goals.

Solar PV has been embraced commercially for many years and continues to deliver an impressive return on investment for many business owners, some experiencing returns as high as 17%. With 20 years of guaranteed payments, that becomes a pretty good payback.
