It’s a given that a solar energy system will allow you to slash your monthly electric bill.
A clean energy solar system is also great for the environment. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, in 2009 the national average carbon dioxide output rate was 1,301 pounds of carbon dioxide per 1,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh) for delivered electricity.
A typical 10,000-square-foot office building consumes that much electricity in two days.
Take a look at a recent bill and you can multiply the kWh electricity billed by 1,301 to calculate how many pounds of carbon dioxide emissions are tied to just the electricity consumed by your business in a month. A solar electric system generates zero carbon dioxide.
Whether your goal is to go green or save green, a photovoltaic system will protect your business from the upward spiraling energy rates of your utility company.
With the financial impact of the recent SDG&E price increase now being felt, many business owners are taking action to gain control over the energy costs that hit their bottom-line profits. They have done their homework by requesting a solar electric system proposal from an installer with a great reputation and track record; they have studied the financials of the proposal to gain a clear understanding of why a solar energy system is a true investment; they have performed a cost-benefit analysis; and based on the facts, they have made the move to installing a clean energy solar electric energy system.
You owe it to yourself and the planet to look into what a solar energy system can do for the bottom line of your business. Imagine how good you’ll feel when you take control of your energy costs.
