COMMERCIAL

A solar energy system installed by Vulcan Solar Power at your business will substantially reduce operating costs for 30+ years, pay for itself in just 3-5years, and generate ROI’s of 15–25%.

SIGNIFICANT FEDERAL TAX INCENTIVES

The federal government offers substantial tax incentives to businesses that install solar energy systems that can lower the first-year effective cost by almost 50%.

  • 30% Federal Tax Credit. Businesses are entitled to a 30% federal tax credit on the entire cost of a solar energy system (dollar-for-dollar credit), and there is no application process or cap on the total credit amount. Free money from the IRS!
  • Accelerated MACRS Depreciation. Businesses can depreciate 85% of the entire cost of a system over just 6 years, which can amount to another 20% off the total cost of the system in the 1st year alone and close to 30% over 6 years.

RETURN ON INVESTMENT

A solar energy system at your business will substantially reduce operating costs for 30+ years and generate significant economic returns.

  • Over 50% Reduction on Your Power Bill. Systems designed and installed by VSP typically will offset 50-65% of a customer’s annual power bill, but in certain applications the offset can exceed 90%.
  • 3-5 Year Payback Period. In most cases, a system installed by VSP will pay for itself in just 3-5 years.
  • 15-25% ROI. You can expect a system installed by VSP to generate a minimum 10-year ROI of 15%, but often the ROI will be 20% or more.
  • Financing. VSP offers direct financing to qualifying businesses at below-market interest rates, which can reduce the payback period to less than 2 years and generate a 10-year ROI exceeding 30%.

 

MEET YOUR COMPANY'S SUSTAINABILITY OBJECTIVES

A solar energy system is one of the quickest and most cost-effective ways to meet your company’s sustainability and renewable energy objectives.
