Commercial Solar Panel Systems
Solar power for business is an even much bigger ‘no brainer’ than it is for homes. Businesses use much more power, and the tax incentives are much higher. Typically, a business solar panel system pays for itself in 3 – 4 years. At Solar Harmonics, we generate a custom proposal that evaluates the total electricity costs for the year, and then we work with the business owner where we can install solar panels.
In general, a rooftop solar panel system will breakeven in just 3 – 4 years. We also do covered parking (who doesn’t love covered parking in the summer?), but the breakeven time is 5 – 6 years. But why don’t more businesses have solar on their properties? From a financial perspective, solar is a no-brainer, so the issues often become political (not everyone on the board agrees to go solar), aesthetic (don’t like the look of solar), or just that other business gets in the way of the solar decision.

Our Process is Simple
For property owners who operate in their own building, solar is is a slam dunk. The way commercial real estate is valued is by the building cash flow. So, as solar decreases the electricity expense, net income increases, and those profits flow to the net cash flow. That annual cash flow, not including the tax incentives, divided by the market cap rate, generally show a $100,000 investment in solar power returns a building increase of $400,000 from the first day of operation.
For triple net building owners, where the tenants pay the electricity bills, solar is still a great investment. Before solar, the tenant is writing one check to the landlord for rent, and another check to the utility for electricity. What if a portion of the electric bill could be moved to the landlord? Now, the landlord is making money from the rent and the electricity costs. And once the solar is paid off, the solar panels do not stop producing. The payments from the tenant keep flowing to the landlord, so going solar, once again, increases the value of the building from the first day.
There are countless other green benefits for building owners to go solar from the political to employee retention and recruitment, to simply having shade in the parking lots that every building owner should strongly consider going solar.
Solar Harmonics is the way to go !!! The owner was very helpful throughout the process he walked me through the process from beginning to end . If you are considering solar look no further Solar Harmonics is the place to do business with
Thanks once again …
I am a 64 year old home owner who worked for 30 years as an aircraft quality engineer. I have never written a review for any product or service, but I am compelled to do so for Solar Harmonics. The service was first class. Any and all emails were answered promptly, most in a matter of minutes. The job of installation was completed professionally with little or no intrusion into my lifestyle. The price for the job was extremely reasonable. Do not go with the big corporate solar installers. You will pay twice as much and get half the service for the same product. A special thank you to the owner of Solar Harmonics who was always there to help with any issues that I had.
Don’t think twice. Use Solar Harmonics as your solar installer.
I have never posted a review on yelp before and generally don’t post reviews, although I find them incredibly useful when researching purchases. But, I feel it’s worth my time to let other people know of my experience with Solar Harmonics compared to my experience with a couple of other companies.
First, if you are considering a solar panel project, I highly recommend Solar Harmonics. Solar Harmonics was professional, courteous, and was fantastic at keeping me updated about every step of the solar panel installation process. All of my questions and issues were answered promptly and clearly and I really appreciated him working with me to determine if solar could be installed on my roof.
Prior to working with Solar Harmonics, I tried another local installer and they kept trying to sell me a lease even after I made it clear I did not want a lease (goodbye). I then tried getting solar through a website where contractors submit competing bids and the customer can choose which bid to accept. This was a nightmare. I spent about four months of phone calls and emails with nothing getting done after selecting one of those bids. I was lied to and misled and the price could have potentially nearly doubled after being told I needed a panel upgrade (another lie as Solar Harmonics inspected the panel and informed me no panel upgrade would be necessary). After four months, I was never even sent a contract showing the actual price. This was a year ago and I gave up after that.
Thankfully, I decided to try one more time and contacted Solar Harmonics. The contrast in experience couldn’t be any more different from what I experienced previously. There was no pushy selling. Instead, he worked with me to determine if solar would work for me. Communication was superb and the process was incredibly fast.
