Federal & state governments provide generous incentives to business owners who own their solar arrays outright. Companies that complete solar installations in 2020 receive a 26% federal tax credit. In addition, accelerated depreciation (MACRS) allows further tax benefits.
Green your business
Going solar is a financial no-brainer for businesses, but reducing greenhouse gases is just as important. In addition, customers seek out environmentally-friendly businesses. Forbes states that “consumers are looking for more environmental accountability from companies, and some are willing to pay extra for more sustainable products.”
Try Commercial Solar for Free
If you have a large commercial or industrial building and want to generate income & help the environment without incurring the up-front costs of owning solar outright, ask us about commercial solar leasing.
Commercial solar leases allow business owners to lease unused property or roofs for solar installations.
As the property owner, you aren’t responsible for payments or maintenance, but you also won’t enjoy all the tax benefits of owning the system. You will, however, receive either a discounted rate on electricity or a straight cash payment for the next 20 years.
The bottom line
Commercial solar provides plentiful utility savings and a leg up on the green business movement. Thus, Cape Cod businesses like this one in Chatham are wise to consider it.
