Skyward Solar Power

Big Business

Electricity generation is quite a dirty business. From reports of toxic coal ash to fears of radioactive pollution, consumers are increasingly concerned about the effects of many mainstream technologies.

Why It's Worthwhile
Solar power isn't just environmentally savvy—it's also a good financial decision. In North Carolina, a substantial state tax credit and many local incentives add to the federal tax credit and make solar energy systems extremely affordable. Over 80% of the initial cost of the solar power system may be recouped through generous tax incentives.

That's why local businesses like SAS and QVC have installed solar electric systems. And it's why solar panels are appearing in places like the Marine Corps Air Station in Cherry Point and Greensboro's Reedy Fork Elementary School.

Why It Works
Solar electric systems are extremely robust. Constructed from durable, weather-resistant materials, they have no moving parts and require very little maintenance. In fact, many solar electric systems last 30 to 40 years.

The result? Your business gets free solar power, while the utility companies continue to raise rates and consider plant shut downs.
