Southern View Energy’s Installation Approach
As electric rates continue to increase, businesses that own their office buildings, production facilities and farmland are converting to solar electric power to offset operating costs and shield against inflation. Scott Earp, owner and president of Southern View Energy (SVE) explains his company’s straightforward process for installing a commercial solar roof system.
SVE’s Case Study For Gaining Energy Independence
Installing a solar electric power system for your business provides a significant Return on Investment (ROI) and the potential for a rapid pay-off period. Commercial solar owners benefit from immediate utility savings, at least a 30% federal income tax credit, and a bonus accelerated 5-year depreciation schedule for solar, if needed. For more detailed information please reference our Solar Financial & Tax Incentives information.
Farmers and businesses in rural counties may be eligible for a Rural Energy for America Program (REAP) grant. The REAP grant is currently a 50% cash award for solar installations. When the 50% cash award is added to the 30% federal income tax credit, 80% of the project cost is covered! MACRS bonus depreciation and the annual energy savings generated by the solar system contribute to a very rapid ROI.
