With the cost of rooftop solar systems declining many more commercial solar power systems will be installed. Tax rebates and subsidies have spurred many people to buy commercial solar systems.
Commercial solar power rooftop installation in California is brisk and, in Europe, it’s been downright explosive. Although the biggest growth in rooftop solar is in the residential market, an increasing number of businesses, schools, churches and nonprofits are installing commercial solar power panels. The cost of a rooftop solar panel system depends on the size of your business and total square footage available. The total rooftop solar potential for the city of Los Angeles is over 5,500 MW, which could power the city on most days.
With the cost of rooftop solar systems declining many more commercial solar power systems will be installed. Additionally, ground mount systems over parking lots and water-mount systems over reservoirs make a huge amount of sense as dual-function power generation and efficient use of land. Tax rebates and subsidies have spurred many people to buy commercial solar systems. The growth in solar power has been fast among homeowners, and even faster among commercial building owners.
Commercial Solar Design can provide excellent value because it purchases a very large number of panels and negotiates a far better price than the stand-alone solar operator. Commercial Solar Design regularly offers power purchase agreements for commercial solar projects which allows a business operator to pay little or nothing for the panels and installation up front.
Commercial Solar Design specializes in the commercial and utility markets, setting the industry standard for innovation in reliability and efficiency. The importance of commercial solar and its potential future role in expanding solar power ownership is underscored by data on solar PV growth. Institutional owners of U.S. commercial real estate, including publicly owned real estate investment trusts (REITs), control enough rooftop real estate to generate 40,000 megawatts of solar power.
The move toward renewable energy has been a long time coming for some environmental activists. There is now a big push by the utility and others in California to sign up renewable energy projects to meet a state mandate to produce 33 percent of its electricity from renewable sources by 2020
