In 2014 and 2015, Massachusetts was one of the few states where the market for larger, commercial scale solar energy systems grew when compared to the previous year. In 2016, we also added Rhode Island as a service area we cover that has also experienced this. Companies and organizations with significant electricity costs are increasingly discovering how solar PV is both a short-term and long-term way to address the problem.

Because solar panel technology has greatly improved and with commercial scale installation costs dropping by as much as 40% in the last 5 years, there is no better time than now for many facilities.

For-profit business is driven by a strong bottom line. Generally, value of money, rates of return, and investment payback are important measures of how a company manages capital and assets.

Decisions to go solar are usually made by comparing the use of capital to find the best path for meeting all goals. Sometimes, social concerns are added factors in making a final decision. Additionally, satisfying investors may be equally as important.

Public spaces like churches, schools and other non-profit organizations may have physical assets but lack capital or income. They can’t take advantage of most of the federal and state tax incentives for solar power thanks to their tax exempt status or lack of tax liability. However, we can still find optimal solutions that balance the need for cost reduction with the financial limitations. Stakeholders, boards, and oversight committees will be satisfied with these choices.
