San Mateo, CA — Alta Energy has released a new report for commercial property owners who want to make sound decisions about potential solar projects.
San Mateo, CA — Alta Energy, an independent solar analytics and procurement company, has released a new report, “Making the Business Case for Solar,” which provides a five-step process for commercial property owners to make sound decisions about potential solar projects.
“The falling cost of solar panels has dramatically improved the economics of solar energy for commercial properties, but that doesn’t mean solar makes economic sense on every property,” says Sam Lee, CEO of Alta Energy. “Commercial property owners, and long term lessors, have to objectively evaluate the business case for solar on each property to determine if solar makes economic sense, and then monitor each projected return on investment (ROI) over time.”
The new report guides owners of shopping centers, corporate campuses, industrial facilities and other commercial properties through the highly complex decisions involved in evaluating the business case for solar on each property in their portfolio.
The report includes a detailed description of the factors that a comprehensive analytical model should contain in order to identify the properties where a solar system makes economic sense. It also includes a sample presentation that internal staff can utilize to educate company decision-makers and gain timely approval for cost-effective solar projects.
“Our goal is to make it easy for commercial property owners to identify and complete cost-effective solar projects at the right time, with the right vendors, on the best possible terms,” Lee says.
