How Community Solar Can Help Your Small Business
Running a small business is no easy feat. Without the safety net of a large corporation, you have to do everything yourself. But it also grants you freedoms that branches and franchises of large companies don’t have. Often, big companies will have “green initiatives” that are meant to make the company look good, but don’t amount to any real change. Small businesses, however, can make changes that actually make a difference, like switching to community solar.
Here’s how switching to community solar can help your small business.
Community solar helps small businesses in three ways. First, it allows small businesses to access solar energy without the high upfront costs and maintenance of installing their own solar panels. By participating in a solar project, small businesses can purchase a share of the system. Second, they can also receive credits on their utility bill for the electricity generated by their share of the system. This can help lower energy costs and increase energy independence for small businesses. Third, community solar projects can be eligible for various state and federal incentives, which can help offset the cost of the system and provide a return on investment for small businesses.
Many small businesses have sustainability goals. In some communities, businesses are required to reduce or offset their carbon footprint by a certain amount. But even if those requirements aren’t in place, many businesses still want to be more environmentally friendly. For those businesses, joining a community solar project is an affordable way to meet their goals.
Help the Community
Community solar power can also benefit the local community and economy. By investing in a solar project, small businesses are supporting the development of clean energy and creating jobs in the local area. Many customers also want to support local businesses that are making an effort to help the environment. By joining a community solar project, you can attract a whole new customer base to your business!
