WHY TAKE YOUR BUSINESS SOLAR?
An abundant and renewable energy and a time-tested technology, solar electricity, or photovoltaic (PV), can meet all or part of your business’ electricity needs. With a simple payback of 5-8 years, and a return on investment that’s above 10%, southern Arizona’s business owners are increasingly turning an eye to the sun.
Reduce your impact on the environment:
In Tucson, about 90% of our electricity comes from burning coal and natural gas, which have serious impacts on the environment and local air quality.
A solar system’s size will vary widely for each business. Whether you need a large or small system, each kilowatt of solar that you install will, in one month:
- Prevent about 145 lbs. of coal from being mined and burned,
- Save over 70 gallons of water from being used to create electricity,
- Prevent about 325 lbs. of CO2 emissions, combating global warming,
- Reduce sulfur and nitrogen emissions, contributors to smog and acid rain.
Reduce your monthly payments:
Electrical consumption has risen in America dramatically in the last 20 years. You can lower or eliminate your business’ electric bill, and protect yourself from escalating electricity costs by going solar.
Incentives available for commercial solar in 2014 can cover up to 65% of system costs, reducing the payback period to as low as 5 years, depending on the size of your system.
