At capital Solar Group, we deliver cost effective strategies on individual project bases. Our team has experience with the intricacies of the solar financing process and we specialize in structuring and placing the capital necessary for our diverse clientele. An investment in solar today equals a more profitable sustainable tomorrow.
The simplest path to financing a solar project is to purchase the system directly with upfront capital. You buy and operate the solar installation which allows your organization to directly benefit from available federal, state and local solar incentives. If you have available capital and the tax appetite to absorb tax credits and accelerated depreciation, a direct purchase via cash or loan is likely to be the best option.
Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy (C-PACE) financing provides private capital from lenders to make energy upgrades to commercial properties. The loan structures payment terms which allow projects to be cash flow positive on day one. Eligibility is based on property value rather than credit history and the loan is repaid as a special assessment on your property tax bill. Tax incentives and other benefits pass through directly to the property owner. Interest rates are typically higher than a conventional loan and the additional regulatory reviews could extend your project timeline.
A solar power purchase agreement (PPA) is a financial agreement where a solar developer builds a solar project on your property or somewhere in your region (called offsite solar) and then sells the electricity to you at a prearranged fixed rate that is typically lower than the local utility’s retail rate. The rate your organization pays is “subsidized” by the tax incentives retained by the project owner.
The solar project owner (financier) assumes the risk because you, the energy buyer, only pay for kilowatt hours that are actually produced by the solar system. Additionally, since your organization does not own the solar project, it is not held on the balance sheet. The system can be bought out or decommissioned at the end of the lease term.
How Can Solar Help Your Business?
Reduce Operating Costs
Improve your NOI by reducing operating costs. Solar power allows businesses to generate electricity at a lower cost than purchasing from a utility company. Market data suggests that the average commercial property owner in the U.S. can reduce overall energy expenses by up to 100 percent by going solar.
Predictable Long-Term Source of Electricity
Most businesses experience a full payback on their investment in as little as three to seven years. After that period, the real benefits kick in: businesses can enjoy free electric supply for 25 to 35 years (the lifetime of the solar system).
Federal and state incentives make solar more accessible for today’s business owners. As a result of these incentives, you can reduce the net cost of your solar energy system by anywhere from 26 to 50 percent.
Social and Environmental Credibility
Going solar gets you noticed. Whether you’re looking to enhance your brand equity or just simply want to upgrade your building, making a shift to solar energy raises community awareness and brings more than just financial advantages.
