There are a number of things to consider when looking into purchasing and installing commercial solar energy systems. Initial installation costs are an obvious key point, but a number of longer term factors should not be overlooked.
For the enterprise consumer, the main incentive for thinking about installing a solar generator is the drive to reduce energy costs. This leads to an initial mental calculation to determine how long it will take to “pay for itself”. The answer always varies, but in almost every case, the potential consumer overestimates their answer for two important reasons. Firstly, they always make such calculations based on current energy prices, and secondly, they fail to factor in governmental credits and incentives. Of course, it would be foolish to try and predict how much energy will cost at a later date, but it would be equally foolish to overlook the fact that energy prices are trending steadily upward.
Depending on your location. Federal, State, and in some cases even Municipal programs exist to encourage the use of more environmentally friendly forms of electricity generation. Most people are familiar with residential incentives to install solar panels due to their coverage on the mass media, but talk of commercial solar energy systems is far less prevalent on the news. Luckily, the authorities have not overlooked businesses in this regard. It makes sense that the greatest impact can be made with the biggest energy consumers, and in most cases, business consume far more than residences.
Financially speaking, the more one crunches the numbers, the better it looks to make the switch. But other benefits exist too. Investments in solar systems allow for cost-effective scalability that is simply non-existent in other forms of environmentally friendly self-sustaining energy generators. When compared to wind or hydro electric generators, for example, apart from the obvious logistical problems that arise with their installation like the lack of access to running water, or being in an urban environment where erecting a windmill is not possible, only commercial solar energy systems allow modular additions as demand requires. Once an initial system has been set up on a roof for example, as long as there is ample space, more panels can always be added.
In addition, many customers fail to appreciate the impact that an addition of commercial solar energy systems have on property value. By making a property far more attractive to buyers, an in-house renewable energy system increases a property’s attractiveness to buyers, while at the same time being unaffected by an increase in property-tax.
As each day passes, and growing demand is generating enough innovation to drive down production costs, the question becomes less “should we install a system”, and is increasingly “when and how can we install our commercial solar energy system.” http://nationalatlas.gov/articles/people/a_energy.html
