Commercial Solar Rockford

Rockford Commercial Solar Company

Looking for commercial solar power to reduce energy expenses? There’s never been a time to invest in solar panels for business. The State of Illinois has began another fund to help spur mass adoption of renewable energy projects including commercial solar. Our Energy Savings model combined with the states’s SREC’s, ComEd Smart Inverter Rebate and Federal solar tax credit results in immediate cost reduction requiring zero capital expenditure, loan, or sharing the benefits with a 3rd party such as a PPA. ComEd‘s smart inverter rebate and the Illinois SREC’s are capped. Time is of the essence you get in line to receive these subsidies. We have already began the paperwork filings for our clients to help them secure these incentives.

Energy Savings Payment Model

The Energy Savings Payment Model (ESP) is unique to Solar One and combines benefits from each traditional solar model into a innovative hybrid model where the client keeps the tax advantages, minimizes the upfront expense, expediting ROI, increases the property value, and receives instant energy savings. As the client receives energy savings, Solar One shares in a percentage of those savings to help pay down the system’s cost. Solar One assumes all risk and maintains the system for free until the system is paid off.

  • Creates positive cash flow from Day 1.
  • No upfront expense, simply pass along the equal value of the tax benefits you would have otherwise paid the Federal government.
  • ​You own outright and don’t share profits with a bank.
  • ​Free maintenance until the system is paid off.
  • ​Solar equipment increases the value of your company assets.
  • ​No risk of performance; if it doesn’t produce electricity, you don’t share savings.
  • ​In the event you sell your facility, Solar One contract is freely assignable.

A Look at the Numbers

For Example, Even in Cold and Cloudy Rockford…

50,000 square foot roof top = $1 million in savings over 25 years

100,000 square foot roof = $2 million in savings over 25 years

1.333 = production factor in Illinois for example (if at 180 degree tilt)

1.333 x 700 kw = annual kWh (kilowatt-hour) produce in year = 933

A kilowatt hour is when you add in your supply delivery, taxes, conservatively worth $0.08 = 1 kWh

Supply rate on average = 5.5

Take $0.08 x 933 (annual kwH produced in a year)

= ~$70,000/year in savings

Which = $6,000/month in electricity savings

Or ~$2 million in savings over 25 year warrantied life.

We have completed projects for dozens of privately owned and publicly traded Fortune 500 Manufacturing companies across their entire portfolio of facilities with many more Illinois projects in and near Champaign.

New Round of 2021 Illinois Solar Incentives

The state of IL recently passed a clean energy bill mandating 100% renewable energy by 2050. The Prairie State’s new legislation sets aside $500 million in subsidies to the Illinois residents and businesses for wind and solar.

The subsidies are a 350% increase on investments made on solar in the state. This presents a significant savings opportunities for IL businesses looking to own their own solar array. As such it’s imperative you file the paper work ASAP to secure your portion of these generous subsidies.

The small distributed generation category has been expanded to include 10kW to 25kW, which means high consuming residential properties and small commercial businesses will now receive the best subsidy pricing and a better payout schedule for selling back to the grid.
