What Payback Period can I expect from a Solar Investment?+

What kind of IRR will solar produce?+
The Internal Rate of Return (IRR) also varies largely depending on the incentives and funding sources the business can qualify for. Customers see a much higher IRR than their Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC).
Will we use the same types of products that you do on a residential system? Or is it different?+
On large scale projects we use Commercial-Grade products and materials. This means larger panels, more robust inverter systems and stronger mounting products.
Will the existing utility infrastructure be able to handle a commercial-grade solar system?+
In most cases the existing utility infrastructure will be able to handle your solar system. It is best to consult with our commercial team before embarking on your solar investment. We will do a site analysis and determine if the current infrastructure is adequate for your unique situation.
What kind of tax credits are available for me as a commercial customer?+
Commercial customers are eligible for the 30% Investment Tax Credit and up to a 70% Investment Tax Credit based on the Inflation Reduction Act.
