Top 5 Reasons to Invest in Solar Energy
Investing in solar is about more than earning a return—it’s about all the ways solar helps communities benefit and thrive. When you invest in our solar projects, you’re simultaneously helping the environment and helping provide clean, renewable energy for future generations.
1. Help Customers & Communities
Solar can be leased to many customers on limited budgets at a rate that helps save on electricity costs. By reducing customers’ energy budgets, more of their resources can be spent meeting their personal missions. Reduced budgets for customers that are funded through taxes often translate into the control of future tax increases. Therefore, investing in your community may also indirectly reduce your future taxes. It’s a win-win for the community on many levels!
2. Reduce Taxes
Solar projects create tax losses and credits and form depreciation expenses. These losses and credits can then be used to offset tax liabilities for trusts, corporations, and individual investors with passive income. Solar tax credits are front-loaded, helping to improve cash flow. Instead of giving your money to the taxman, you can invest this same money into solar projects, which allow you to earn back much of the initial investment in a few years before earning a return. Be sure to consult with your tax accountant before making these decisions.
3. Earn a Return
Yes, investors can earn a great return. Whether you’re sponsoring equity or investing in tax equity, you have the ability to make a profit. In fact, upon understanding the relevant risks, many consider these returns higher than those associated with similar risk profiles. Additionally, investors can exit the fund in just over five years.
4. Combat Climate Change
Climate change is real, and we all must do our part. Transitioning to clean and renewable energy sources is one way to mitigate this pervasive issue—well-designed solar systems can provide clean and renewable energy for more than three decades. You can do your part by investing in the solar energy of the future.
5. Make a Difference
Our solar projects support local towns, cities, schools, churches, hospitals, fire departments, and police departments, large and small. The installation of solar panels educates and demonstrates to future generations that change can be made. By inspiring the youth and problem-solvers of today, we can help our planet for generations to come.
