A solar installation from Planet Solar is one of the best investments you can make for your business, and the government wants to pay for about half of it!  Reduce or eliminate your electric bill saving you many thousands every year, and you'll protect yourself against the ever rising electricity rates.  With the government solar incentive added to your savings, a solar installation usually pays for itself in about three years. You'll set yourself apart with a huge competitive advantage over your competition.

 

From the largest government affordable housing project in America, to military bases, apartment complexes, hotels, and corner gas stations - businesses large and small are saving millions of dollars using systems installed by Planet Solar

Solar - Your Competitive Strategy

When you add solar to your business, you gain an advantage over

your competition. Whether your electric bill is $3,000 or $3,00,000

per year, every dollar you save goes directly to your bottom line. 

We have solutions for every business scenario.

TAX INCENTIVES AND REBATES PAY FOR MOST OF

YOUR SYSTEM


All commercial solar installations qualify for federal and state tax credits and

other incentives, paying for about 50% of the cost of your system (depending on

your business structure). With the government subsidizing your solar system, and

with all the money you'll save on electricity bills, we often see the systems pay for themselves in 3 years or even less.  If you don't have the tax liability (and this year with COVID-19, many won't),  or prefer to retain capital for operating expenses, Planet Solar can provide a commercial solar loan in which you pay $0.00 for the solar and make payments that are normally about 50% lower than your current electric bill. Either way, there is no better investment that you can make in your business than by Going Solar. 

The Government Incentives are:

  • 26% Investment Tax Credit.  It can be taken all in the first year, or carried forward as many as 3 years. 

  • 100% MACRS (Modified Accelerated Capital Recovery System) Depreciation. Write off the entire system over 5 years.

  • Bonus Depreciation. A special 'shot in the arm' for businesses.  Instead of 5 years, you are allowed to use the MACRS Depreciation to write off 100% of a new solar system for your business in the first year!

All business qualify for the above incentives, including single-family homes if they are used as rentals.  Even that portion of your home that you may use for a home office  can apply the write-offs listed above (and again, due to COVID-19 millions of US homes now are being used at least partially used as home offices). 

 

Some of the Best Industries for Going Solar are:

  • Motels

  • Apartment Complexes

  • Single or two-story office buildings

  • Farms

  • Car Dealerships

  • Convenience Stores and gas stations

  • Any business that has high electricity usage, and ample roof or parking area to install solar panels.

Commercial and Industrial Buildings (C&I)

There are literally thousands of dollars landing on your roof every day in the form of sunshine - Capture Yours!  Large unshaded roofs are the perfect location to install solar panels.  But if you don't have enough roof area, solar carports are a great solution too, providing shaded parking for your customers and employees.  Planet Solar has installed acres and acres of carport solar structures. No matter what type of business you own, Planet Solar has a solution for you.

Agricultural Solar made Simple

Your farm basically takes your hard work, sunshine and water, and feeds the world.  But pumping that water is crazy expensive.  We will take your power bills and design a system that is perfect for  your farm, not only today but also planning ahead for the future.  We will show you all the options the solar industry has to offer, including $0 down payment programs that can reduce your power bill by up to 60%.  Then we will monitor your solar system for life, to make sure you are getting the maximum power potential from your system for decades to come.

Apartment Complexes - Affordable Housing and Open Market 

Add additional revenue from your roof!  Imagine you becoming the power company, and collecting the revenue from your tenant's electric bill using Free Power from the Sun.  Planet Solar has created programs like this for thousands of units across California.  Also, more and more tenants are looking to live more sustainably, and apartments powered by solar have lower vacancy rates and rent for an average $86 per month more per unit than an equivalent non-solar apartment.  Your tenants want clean, green solar power. 

 

If you have a 'master-metered' property like a senior center or residency building where you pay for power, you can't afford not to Go Solar.  And with the Federal Solar Incentives, your ROI will likely be over 40%!

 

For Affordable Housing complexes, we are one of very few solar installers authorized as a SOMAH Installer (Solar On Multi-family Affordable Housing).  This is an exciting $1Billion program to provide solar power on deed-restricted affordable housing projects almost for free.  Give us a call so we can explain the program and see if you qualify, most subsidized projects do.

 Solar starts saving you money immediately. The typical business enjoys an ROI from Going Solar of over 40%, and that return is guaranteed! Don’t you wish all your business decisions were guaranteed?

AFFORDABLE HOUSING - The new SOMAH program can pay for nearly 100% of

your solar system!  The state of California has funded $1Billion over 10 years for solar

installations on affordable housing projects.  Each year the program reduces the

percentage of  the subsidy, but it is an amazing program.  Planet Solar is an

authorized SOMAH contractor, and will be happy to show you how to get free or

very inexpensive solar for your existing affordable housing project

Testimonials

"One of the best companies by far that I've had the pleasure to work with. Marilyn has been very helpful and very friendly. I highly recommend Planet Solar for all your electrical savings!!!

berettagunsrule

Great experience. Clean, prompt, honest. Did exactly what they said.

movingbigtrunks

SKEPTIC. I was very skeptical of solar until I met with Marilyn, she was very professional and honest. The only salesperson that told me I couldn't have 100% coverage because of all the redwoods surrounding my house. I appreciated her honesty and that's why I chose her company. We've had no electric bill since the switch was turned on.
