Sustainable Technologies specializes in the design, fabrication, and installation of turn-key grid-tied and stand-alone photovoltaic solar systems. From standard installations to custom-mounted structures, we can design and build a sustainable system that’s right for you. Our designs maximize energy generation while considering aesthetics.
A Solar electrical system is a good investment in your business. On average, it will pay for itself five times in 30 years. It’s also the environmentally right thing to do. You’re investing in clean energy, and securing energy independence in your business future. With all the extra incentives, now is a great time to invest in a solar electric system for your business!
Conventional energy costs will only continue to rise, but the price of solar power is fixed, and after your system pays for itself in a few years, your energy will be free, plus you’ll enjoy accelerated depreciation for the life of your investment. Our Solar Engineers and journey level electricians have installed 3.5kW – 250 kW systems. As a general contractor, we have the resources and skills to build any structural support for your system, such as tilted angles, posts, piers, and trackers. Name your electrical needs and we can help. In our fabrication shop, we can build electrical enclosures to your specifications, including combiner boxes, control panels, and fuse junction boxes.
Energy Audits & Retrofits
Before sizing and designing your Solar PV System, Sustainable Technologies can perform an energy audit to calculate additional savings, maximize efficiency, and reduce the cost of installation. We can retrofit your business with energy efficient lighting and appliances and help you take advantage of the many rebates available. We perform energy efficiency retrofits for non-solar customers as well. Green your business while saving money. Click here for more info.
We’ll do the paperwork
We’ll take care of city permits, coordination with the utility company and rebate paperwork. Your tax specialist can help you with tax credits. If you have any problems with your system we will be there to assist you. Financing plans are available.
It’s Good for the Environment
Solar energy is a clean, reliable, renewable energy alternative to polluting high-impact systems. Enough sunlight falls on the earth’s surface every hour to meet world energy demand for an entire year. With resources dwindling and becoming more costly, the time is now to invest in long-term solutions to our shortage and achieve energy independence.
Start Saving Now on Your Electric Bills
A solar energy system can offset your peak energy consumption down to base line levels and help you save up to 80% or more of your annual electricity bill. Energy rates are increasing at a rapid rate with no end in sight. Streamlining your energy costs will significantly improve your bottom line. The federal tax credit on a Solar Energy System is 30%. Under the Modified Accelerated Cost Recovery System (MACRS) your business can recover an investment in solar energy through depreciation deductions. All properties placed in service after 1986 can be depreciated in five years.
