How Solar Saves Money for Auto-Related Businesses

Are you ready to make a change and find a cost-effective solution to reducing your energy bill? Instead of relying on the grid and throwing away thousands of dollars due to the continuous rise of energy prices, you can use a natural resource, like the golden globe in the sky. By utilizing renewable energy, you can keep money in your bank by immediately lowering your monthly energy costs with solar savings. 

Solar Benefits

Relying on the power grid means your business is vulnerable to higher electricity increases over the next 15 years, especially with the upcoming changes and regulations. By switching to renewable energy, you will be a step ahead of other businesses and save money in the long run. When you take a closer look at solar and compare the costs with solar technology versus staying on the grid, you will see an extraordinary difference immediately and will cut your energy costs by more than half or in time eliminate the expense with financial incentives.

Over the years, the cost of installing solar panels has decreased, and with the advancement in technology, solar panels now have a slimmer look. There are many options for automotive businesses, like rooftop solar or carport solar. Carport solar is ideal for car lots, auto body shops, and repair shops to keep customers’ cars cool and helps power electric vehicles (EV). All around, solar is beneficial to all types of businesses alike because of the substantial amount of money you can save now and in the next 25 years.

Tax Credit

If you own your solar system, you will be eligible for the renewable energy tax credit. You claim your tax credit for your solar system when you file your yearly federal tax return. In December of 2020, Federal and local governments passed the Tax Credit (ITC) extension for solar energy. This extension provides a 26% federal tax credit through 2022. In 2023, the credit drops to 22%. In 2024, it bottoms down to 10%.  Now is the time to take advantage of the higher tax credit!

Return on Investment

With low installation costs, solar panels are the best solution because they are low maintenance, long-lasting, and save you money in overhead expenses. The average return on investment is about 30% over the course of 25 years. Investing in renewable energy for your auto business makes sense because you save money and it improves the environment.  You will notice the difference in your energy bill right away and in the years to come.

Going Green Adds Value to Your Auto Business

Your business will gain awareness and be a step ahead of other businesses by cutting costs and protecting the environment. About 70% of consumers in the United States strongly agree that it’s important to go green and buy from businesses using renewable energy sources. Going solar has its benefits and rewards. Switching to renewable energy shows that you care about your local community and the environment.
