Why Commercial Solar?
Convert an operating expense, your electric bill, into a capital expense and fix your cost of electricity for 25 years or more. Many business owners and property managers throughout Washington State are already choosing to switch to clean, renewable solar energy. The reason? A commercial solar electric system offers not only clear environmental benefits but also a predictable, bankable financial return.
Commercial solar electric installations are eligible for a Federal Investment Tax Credit (ITC) for 30% of the solar system expenditures.
Solar electric systems also qualify for 100% bonus depreciation under the new tax bill (clients can still opt for the MACRS 5-year depreciation schedule).
Commercial solar system owners can realize a rate of return increase by maximizing depreciation in the first year (the more a company can expense, the less they pay in taxes for that year).
Note: Solar by Barron does not provide tax, legal or financial advice. Please consult with a tax professional to confirm your company’s eligibility for federal incentives.

Reduced Operating Costs
PV systems produce reliable clean energy during the times businesses need it the most. Power that isn’t utilized is fed back to the utility, producing a credit that can be applied against power that is obtained from the grid during periods of high demand or low production. Commercial enterprises invest in PV systems in order to help lower operational costs and increase profits.
Improved Bottom Line
Along with savings in energy costs, solar provides a great defense against energy inflation. Investing in a PV system allows a business to fix the cost of electricity for 25 or more years. Fixing this cost helps to provide accurate long-term energy planning and budgeting.
Increased Property Value
Solar increases a building’s value by as much as $20 for every dollar it generates in a year, making your business worth more money.
Better Brand Equity
Customers will appreciate your business’ commitment to sustainability, clean energy, and reduced environmental impact, giving you better brand equity.
