3 Solar Energy Considerations for Commercial Tenants

Solar power projects are more flexible than ever, benefiting a wider variety of customers and industries.  Whether your business operates out of owned or leased commercial space, there are cost-effective solar energy opportunities available.

1) Does your business pay a utility bill?

The account paying the utility bill has the ability to benefit from solar energy. If your business does not currently pay the electric bill, it is possible to work with your landlord and utility in order to switch the account.

2) Will your landlord allow solar panels on the property?

Don’t worry, even if the answer is ‘no,’ there are still solar opportunities available. Finding out whether or not your landlord will allow solar panels on the property will simply help to understand the options available to your company, such as whether an on-site or off-site project would be most appropriate.

3) So, what other solar options are available for my business if I lease my building?
