About Commercial Solar

ABOUT COMMERCIAL SOLAR

America’s most successful companies are installing rooftop solar!  Walmart, Costco, Macy’s and Staples are just a few of the nation’s top brands who are switching to renewables to improve the bottom line.

TAX INCENTIVES

A 30% federal tax credit helps reduce the upfront cost of commercial solar. Accelerated cost-recovery and bonus depreciation further increase the return on your investment.

UTILITY REBATES

Rebate funds are available from several Los Angeles area utilities to reduce upfront costs:

Utility
Azusa Light & Water
Burbank Water & Power
Glendale Water & Power
Los Angeles DWP
Pasadena Water & Power
Southern California Edison
Southern California Gas

 

UTILITY INTERCONNECTION

Under state-wide solar “net-metering” legislation California utilities are required to credit customer electric bills at full retail rates for each kilowatt-hour (kWh) of grid-connected solar power generated on the customer premises.  In addition, Southern California Edison and Los Angeles DWP offer “feed-in tariff” programs to purchase excess customer-generated electricity at fixed wholesale rates over a long-term contract, usually twenty years.

PROJECT FINANCING

With available lease and loan financing, solar energy is generally cheaper per kilowatt hour than conventional energy from your utility.  Depending on your city and utility, commercial financing is available in the form of:

  • Solar Leases
  • Power Purchase Agreements
  • Solar Loans
  • Property Tax Assessments
  • Rooftop Rental Programs
