Commercial Solar


Commercial solar energy in Denver, CO
For the owner of a commercial building, solar panel installation is equivalent to adding a new lease holder tenant without any expansion of the facility. You essentially enjoy 20 years of “rent” in the form of avoided energy costs, incentives and on going Renewable Energy Credit (REC) payments monthly for 20 years assuming the size of the system is larger than 25kW. If the systems is smaller than 10kW then an even greater amount of incentives helps with cash flow in the early years of the project.

Most businesses can benefit from the good will and “message” communicated to its customers about the seriousness of conserving electricity and using energy wiseley. Often commercial installations are not visible from the street and we have special public display monitoring systems that can be incorporated in the design to be certain that all customers can see the benefit of the energy being saved. In some cases solar systems can be incorporated in the facade or signage of the business in a prominent way and with good design parameters.
Additional tax incentives and accelerated depreciation of the system means that while the system will generate handsome revenue returns for over 25 years, the cost of the system can generally be written down in the first 6 years. Also with the advancement of solar technology even certain roof upgrades can increase the production of the solar. This can allow for greater depreciation on the roof upgrade which can lead to a better return on investment.

How do Commercial Solar Panels Work?

Whether your business is large or small, powering up your operation can constitute a major monthly expense. From keeping the lights on to operating a growing range of IT and other electronic equipment, to ensuring a comfortable interior environment with heating and cooling, your business is likely shelling out a lot on energy costs.

The good news is, you have options to reduce expenses in this area and cut your carbon footprint in the process. When you partner with SunTalk Solar to install your commercial solar power system in Denver, you have the opportunity to save on energy costs, enjoy tax incentives, and more. How does it work?

Solar power is reliant on photovoltaic (PV) technology, including solar panels designed to absorb the sun’s energy and convert it into usable electrical energy. This electricity is funneled to an energy storage system where your business can draw on it as needed.

The size of your property and your energy demands will determine the size of solar array (or the number and arrangement of panels) required to supply adequate electricity. With proper storage, you’ll have access to needed energy day and night, and you may even be able to return some energy to the grid to take advantage of net metering, offsetting potential costs should you need to draw from the grid during times of limited sunlight exposure.

At SunTalk Solar, you’ll enjoy an easy and transparent process, starting with a free consultation and assessment of the solar site, followed by engineering design to perfectly suit your specific needs. When you’re satisfied, we’ll move on to installation, and finally, a thorough inspection to ensure that your solar system is working as it should.

Is Commercial Solar Panel Installation a Good Fit For My Business?

Businesses of all sizes can benefit from the addition of commercial solar panels in Denver, but in order to determine how much you stand to gain, SunTalk Solar will take several factors into consideration. Our consultation process begins by understanding your energy needs, budgetary parameters, and overall goals.

From there, we’ll assess your business site to scope out the geography, consider potential locations for your solar array, and discuss how much space may be needed, options for mounting materials, and more. The number and type of panels will depend on your energy needs and your preferences about the look of your array, while placement may depend on ideal solar collection, as well as whether you want panels visible or hidden.

Solar panels can be mounted on roofing for carports, they can be installed at the ground level, or we can create a canopy of solar panels to cover open parking spaces in your lot, adding double the benefit with solar collection and shaded parking.

As a business owner, you want to make sure any investment is going to deliver desired returns. At SunTalk Solar, we go out of our way to ensure that your solar panel installation will meet your energy needs, result in long-term savings, and benefit your company, whether you want to show the world you’re using green energy, or you prefer to preserve the aesthetics of your property by making solar panels a largely invisible addition.

Incentives for Commercial Solar Power System Installation in Denver

You might be surprised to learn that solar panel installation can save you money in a variety of ways. In addition to slashing your monthly energy bills and allowing for accelerated depreciation to offset initial costs, you can take advantage of different incentives designed to encourage the switch to green energy.

For starters, you might not realize that there are still federal tax credits available for homes and businesses installing solar panels. As of 2021, you can still deduct 26% of the initial cost of a system from your taxes, although that number is expected to change in coming years.

The state of Colorado also encourages adoption of clean energy through a variety of rebates and tax incentives. For example, you can check with utility providers in your area to find out if they offer rebates for companies making the switch to solar energy.

You may be eligible for loans through the PACE program to finance the cost of solar installation, even adding the cost of repayment to your annual property tax for convenience. Then there’s net metering, where you can essentially bank energy overages with the grid to offset use during peak times or when solar power is limited.

With tax incentives, rebates, leases, loans, power purchase agreements, and more to help businesses offset and recuperate costs, you’ll find that there are endless financial benefits, both in the short- and long-term, to updating to solar energy with SunTalk Solar. Let us help you with your commercial solar in Denver and the surrounding areas!
