What is Commercial Solar Power and How Can It Benefit My Business in 2022?

SHINE Partners | February 2022


Residential solar power has experienced a pronounced boom in the last decades. Drive through any suburban housing development, and the evidence should be visible: more houses than ever before featuring solar panels on their rooftops.

Business owners like you may not realize that you can benefit from the same incentives that drive more and more homeowners to install solar panels every year. In fact, some benefits of a solar installation are unique to commercial business and have the opportunity to boost your bottom line, your brand image, and your company’s independence and energy resilience for years to come.

Every hour, 430 quintillion Joules of energy from the sun hits the earth’s surface. Of course, a small fraction of that may strike the rooftop of your commercial property. Still, even a tiny fraction of a number with 18 zeroes after it represents virtually unlimited energy. So rather than remaining subject to marketplace whims and eternally rising electricity costs, you can take advantage of free solar energy today.

A system of commercial solar panels from SHINE Partners can benefit your business in many ways. Here are just a few of them:

Energy Savings Month-to-Month

Of course, one of the primary reasons homeowners and commercial property owners alike explore solar panels is to reduce the amount of electricity they need to draw (and pay for!) from the local power grid. Fossil fuel-burning resources supply most power grids in the U.S. As electricity demands rise and fossil fuels are inevitably depleted, energy costs each month can only ever continue to go up.

An efficient, high-quality solar panel system from SHINE Partners can significantly reduce your reliance on the power grid by generating your power needs with absorbed sunlight. You could even generate enough electricity to offset your usual energy costs entirely in ideal scenarios.

Immediate Savings on Your Installation

Residential solar installations are subject to countless opportunities for tax incentives (at nearly every level of government), grant programs, financing options and more to make it an affordable and accessible option.

Fortunately, business owners can take advantage of many of the same incentive programs, offering your business a way to expand into solar energy production affordably. And just like homes, adding solar panels to your commercial property can potentially increase the property value by many thousands of dollars, depending on the size of your installation.

After you let SHINE Partners know you’re interested in solar panels for your property, we can help you explore the tax incentives, savings programs, financing options and more that will make solar energy possible for you.

Environmental Benefit

It’s an easy reason to overlook from the perspective of a commercial property owner, but for the more environmentally conscious, switching your property to solar energy can have a massive impact on reducing emissions.

As previously stated, most electricity in the U.S. is generated using fossil fuels like oil, natural gas, and coal. These resources are packed with potential energy, which has made them an ideal fuel source to power humanity through the industrial revolution and on into the twenty-first century. Still, they’ve come with an unfortunate side effect.

Burning any fossil fuel inherently produces carbon dioxide (among other gasses) as a byproduct, and excess carbon dioxide in our atmosphere has led to a “greenhouse effect.” The pent-up gas prevents solar radiation from leaving the atmosphere after reflecting off of the earth’s surface, in turn warming the atmosphere and leading to rapid climate changes.

Human-driven climate change has had – and will continue to have – dire effects on the planet unless it’s reversed quickly. Installing solar panels on your commercial property won’t be enough to change our planet-wide course, but it does put you on the “solution-side” of the problem, willing to turn to cleaner energy sources. Generations that follow us will thank you for your commitment to renewable energy.

Boost Your Brand

Hand-in-hand with the previous point, and speaking very shrewdly, turning to solar energy can positively impact your brand’s image with the public and potential business partners.

Let’s face it: whether entirely necessary or not, renewable energy is undoubtedly a popular trend that continues to grow each year. As a result, worldwide brands, large and small, are scrambling to demonstrate that they, too, are committed to renewable energy and a greener future.

Equipping your property with solar panels and reducing your reliance on fossil fuels shows your customers, employees, and business relationships that you care about the planet’s ecological health. The intangible benefits your new green image can bring are innumerable.

The Time is Now

Whatever your reason for exploring solar energy options, there has never been a better time to make the switch than 2022. Solar energy is more affordable and accessible than ever, and opportunities for grants, tax breaks, and cost reductions abound. Unfortunately, those opportunities likely won’t last forever, and neither will our climate health. So make the switch now and enjoy the peace of mind that comes with sustainable energy independence.
