Simply put, solar is not only great for the environment but it’s great for your pocketbook! We can generate a return on investment of up to 18%/year.
Adding Solar to your business significantly increases its value and adds an asset to your balance sheet. However, unlike adding additional buildings, solar does not increase your property taxes.
“Our Net Metering Program offers you the opportunity to generate your own power through the use of renewable energy technology.
Residents, farms and businesses with approved environmentally preferred technologies of up to 100 kilowatts (kW) of nominal (nameplate) generating capacity can deliver their excess electricity to our electrical grid. A bi-directional meter (installed by SaskPower or your local electricity provider) keeps track of the electricity to and from the grid for billing purposes.
How does it work?
Electricity sent to the grid is banked and applied to your current month’s electricity consumption. Any excess electricity is carried over to the following month and applied against that month’s consumption. A credit appears on your monthly bill showing the net amount of electricity that has been banked. Your excess power should be used within the year; if not, at the end of 12 months on your net metering anniversary date, any credits you may have for excess electricity sent to the grid will reset to zero.”

Turn on your savings and improve your cash flow. With solar you can be cash-flow positive immediately. For less than you’ve been paying your utility, you could be producing pure, clean, green, renewable SOLAR energy.
As a solar producer, you would be doing your part to reduce harmful CO-2 gasses created by non-green electrical production. Your use of solar would help diminish our dependency on fossil fuels. Many businesses are able to capitalize on the positive press and increased good will associated with going green.
