Our Process Made Simple
Collecting Necessary Information
We speak with the person(s) of contact to receive the annual electricity usage, billing history, etc to accurately assess your solar eligibility.
We Design Your System
Then if you qualify, our licensed solar engineers will design a customized solar panel system based on available roof space, electricity consumption and your chosen aesthetics.
Schedule 1-On-1 Consult
Lastly, we present to you a proposal for your project(s) which includes various no money down financing options and term lengths that works best for you. **Consultations can be done in person or virtually.
Common FAQ's About Solar On Multifamily Units
Yes, if purchased, there’s a 25-year manufactures’ warranty on the solar power system and a 10-year workmanship warranty that covers all workmanship defects related to installed work only. With a PPA, the installers maintain ownership of the panels during your agreement which also has a 20-year manufactures’ warranty throughout the lifetime of the PPA agreement.
More efficient buildings help renters avoid extra heating and cooling costs, and if paired with solar, those savings increase even more when electricity is factored into rent. Occupants also benefit from a more comfortable and healthy living space.
Business owners receive a federal tax credit equal to 30% of the upfront cost of solar for businesses; including battery backup. It’s a credit, not a deduction, meaning if your project costs $100,000, the ITC reduces the amount you owe the federal government in taxes by $30,000.
The cost of a multifamily solar project can vary depending on many factors like available roof space, your annual usage, the utility’s policies around solar, your energy goals, and more.
Similar to residential & commercial solar, there are several ways to finance a project such as cash payment milestones, solar loan from banks/lenders/credit unions/green banks, $0 money down PPA (Power Purchase Agreement) and various others.
No matter where your projects are, we can help you determine if solar is a good fit for your needs. Whether that’s offsetting utility costs in common areas, differentiating your project in a hot market, reducing your carbon footprint, or anything in between.
For multifamily and mixed-used buildings, we typically see a 30-90% electricity offset. We’ll conduct a comprehensive needs analysis on each location and assess roof structure stability, how many meters available, energy offset goals, your building’s usage & structural history and several other factors.
Most definitely!!! Here’s how;…1) your tenant pays ~$200/month (yearly avg) for electricity 2) you finance a solar panel system on your property with a 12 year loan giving you a solar payment of $95/month 3) you lower the tenants electricity expense to $100/month 4) now the tenant is technically covering your solar payments every month while you pocket an extra $5/month 5) when the 12 year loan is paid off, that $100/month your tenant is paying for electricity is now turned into residual income for you. It’s a win-win for you and your tenant!!
