As a family owned business that owned their building they wanted to claim the tax incentives, eliminate their power bills and demonstrate their commitment to environmental stewardship.

How They Saved

Solar Technologies was selected after a rigorous bidding process and we ultimately installed a 76kW system on their roof that was designed to offset 96% of their electric bills and save $30 thousand dollars in the first year. Over 25 years the system is estimated to save $1.1 million dollars net of their investment and expected to pay for itself in 3.4 short years.
