Commercial solar power panels are installed for two main reasons: to reduce the cost of one’s electrical bill and to help save the earth. On average, commercial solar panel systems are larger than residential panels. A residential panel system usually has 72 solar cells in it and is only 65 inches wide by 39 inches long; while, a commercial solar panel system is usually around two hundred cells in width and can be several feet wide by three feet long.

How to Choose the best Commercial Solar Power System

In order to qualify for the federal income tax credit, you must install solar panels that can produce more energy than you use each month. However, you must also install the system on at least one property where your customers or employees live. This means that you cannot go solar just to get a federal tax credit, since you will then be paying electric bill installation costs as well. In most states, you can use the federal income tax credit to go solar and still reduce your installation costs, so long as you install at least one installed property using photovoltaics. You can then deduct the amount you paid for the installation costs from the amount you are eligible to receive from the federal income tax credit.

Solar power company installation costs are much lower than conventional electrical generation companies. Because commercial solar panel systems do not require large amounts of electric to function, they are able to offer an alternative energy alternative to the conventional energy companies. Although you might initially pay more for your installation costs, you will gradually pay less and save money on your energy bills. Additionally, once your system is installed, your electrical company will continue to provide power to all of your electrical needs, even when your solar power company is not providing power.
