Skyward Solar Power

Small Business

The images of disasters like the recent coal ash spill at the Tennessee Valley Authority Kingston power plant remind the public that many current technologies are dirty—and dangerous.

That's what makes a small business with solar panels so memorable. A solar electric system—also called a solar photovoltaic system—shows your clients that you're different from other businesses. You're committed to integrity and social responsibility.

Why It's Worthwhile
What many of your clients won't realize is that solar power isn't just an environmentally friendly decision. It's also financially sound. Thanks to incentives and rebates from local organizations and the state and federal government, solar power is extremely cost competitive. Over 80% of the cost of the solar power system may be recouped through tax incentives.

Why It Works
Solar electric systems use a set of panels to absorb sunlight and generate electricity. Built from durable, weather-resistant materials, these solar panels have no moving parts and require very little maintenance. In fact, many solar electric systems last 30 to 40 years.

Your return on investment continues to increase because your business is benefiting from free solar power, while the utility companies continue to raise rates and face potential plant shut downs.
