Installing solar panels on your commercial building can not only set a business apart by demonstrating dedication to the environment and community – it is a brilliant investment with guaranteed returns. Whatever the building type, installing solar panels sends the right message to the building occupants and the customers that interact with the establishment.
There is an immeasurable benefit in utilizing clean and renewable energy to demonstrate to customers that the company is on the forefront of cultural and environmental awareness. The addition of solar PV rapidly pays for itself in energy savings, and building operational expense.
Solar is significant value added for: commercial office buildings, shopping centers, supermarkets, big-box stores, gas stations, storage units, schools (public/private), university buildings, hotels, hospitals/clinics, restaurants, as well as public buildings.
Goldin Solar does understand that there are often increased challenges associated with solar projects on commercial buildings compared to private residential buildings.
Some commercial buildings have roof warranties that require the original roofer for any roofing work in order to refrain from voiding existing warranties. Commercial buildings may be owned by corporations which have a complex decision making process to approve projects such as solar. Commercial buildings may have tenants who pay for their own power usage, and therefore the building owner does not see an immediate benefit to investing in onsite power generation.
Despite these challenges, we believe that when a project is delivered correctly, installing solar energy can be done in a way that all parties involved (building owners, tenants, customers, and shareholders) benefit.
And having an awareness of these challenges in advance and the knowledge on how to address them is the foundation for a smooth and successful project with long term returns.
We are prepared to work with buildings’ existing roofers to refraining from voiding roofing warranties.
We have the understanding of the relationship between a building owner, the tenants and how power is paid for in this relationship and how solar can best add value to all parties in a commercial building. As always our consultations are free to qualified customers.
