Significant energy savings with no or low upfront capital

With solar, your business, university or municipality can achieve significant savings on electricity costs over the life of your system. Typical project payback is 5-10 years and after-tax returns for solar can be 15-25 percent. Let us show you how a lease or solar power purchase agreement (PPA) can reduce your total cost of operations with little or no out-of-pocket capital.
