SOLAR BUYERS BEWARE! With the recent government incentives to promote renewable energy, the solar industry has seen a significant increase in the number of new contractors and companies entering the market. Unfortunately, many new players are unskilled, inexperienced, and focused on making a quick profit rather than providing quality solutions to their customers. As a result, solar energy has become one of the most oversold products in the renewable energy industry, with many companies promising unrealistic returns on investment and exaggerating the benefits of their products. Unfortunately, with the generous government subsidies available, it’s easy to get caught up in the process and pay more attention to the credit than the actual performance.
What Return On Investment Can I Realistically Expect?
When investing in solar energy, it’s essential to have realistic expectations about the potential return on investment (ROI). Solar energy can significantly save energy costs and provide many years of service, the actual results will vary depending on many factors, such as the system’s size, proper engineering for the application, installation cost, location, and a dozen other factors.
To ensure that you are getting the promised results, we suggest you begin with a vendor with experience with your type of business and build a reputation for successful installations. They should also have the integrity and experience and expertise to provide you with accurate and realistic estimates of the potential savings and ROI. Our engineering team works closely with your facilities manager and in-house staff to understand your specific energy needs and help you choose the right solar system, energy-saving products, or solution to the spiraling costs.
Why Should I Choose To Install Solar Panels?
There are many reasons to choose to install solar panels, including:
- Reducing energy costs: The cost of powering a manufacturing operation or warehouse is out of control. Therefore, solar is always a wise course for small, medium, or large businesses.
- Improving sustainability: Hundreds of influential organizations in the US and the world have all made very public statements about achieving aggressive sustainability goals. Solar energy is a clean and renewable energy source that can help your business reduce its carbon footprint and improve its overall sustainability.
- Increasing property value: Installing solar panels can increase the value of your property, making it more attractive to potential buyers or renters.
- Government incentives: The government provides a 30% subsidy from the Inflation Reduction Act to promote the use of renewable energy, which can further reduce the upfront costs and increase the ROI.
