Are Solar Panels Worth it for a Small Business?

Are you a small business owner who has been considering installing solar panels, but concerned about the cost? Are you unsure that the energy savings will balance out the cost of installation? Business owners, big and small, have to operate with strict budgets and choosing to invest in something new can be risky. However, if your monthly energy bills keep increasing and you’re interested in harnessing the power of clean energy, a solar system will save you money in the long run. 

Several decades ago solar panels were expensive and the installation cost was prohibitive for many people. Fortunately, things have changed now with the increasing prevalence of solar systems and the many solar incentives available to business owners, like solar leases, solar tax credits, and solar loans. You might be surprised at just how affordable they are now!

Here’s why you should consider solar panels for your small business

Smaller scale installations are more affordable. Larger scale installations often rely on subcontractors and other professionals to complete the installation, resulting in more expensive prices. However, with smaller scale commercial and residential installations, companies like Green House Solar can tap into their own networks to get the job done for a more affordable cost. 

You don’t need a “suitable” roof. Despite popular belief, your roof isn’t the only place where solar panels can be installed. If your business doesn’t have a roof that is suitable for solar panel installation, other options include solar trackers, ground mounts, and solar carports around your property. Commercial solar installers have made great advances in technology when it comes to space restrictions, so don’t jump to conclusions and assume your property isn’t suitable.

Promote your company’s clean energy usage. Let everyone know about your commitment to clean energy and reducing your carbon footprint! Once your solar panels are installed, we can fit your business with a kiosk or a monitor that shows in real time how much clean energy your solar panels are generating. As people become more conscious about doing business with eco-friendly companies, this will be a big bonus for your business’ reputation for corporate responsibility.
