Controlling Cost Tops the List of Solar Benefits

PV solar gives building owners and operators more control over current and future expenses, building a bulwark against constant utility rate increases and on-peak demand charges. As Atlantic Electric Supply has demonstrated with our own 7.4kW grid-tied system, myriad benefits accrue to savvy solar investors:

  • Lower energy expenses, often dramatically lower
  • Defense against rising utility rates and on-peak demand charges
  • Control over future energy costs
  • Possible tax credits or rebates
  • Contribution to LEED points
  • Lower greenhouse gas emissions and smaller carbon footprint
  • Demonstration of fiscal responsibility to stakeholders
  • Highly visible testimony to company’s commitment to sustainability
  • Positive media and community response
