System Design Through Installation and Utility Connection
Our commercial process for installation and financing is the same as for Residential Process with differences in building code approvals, tax credits and city licenses. Our team will submit a clear proposal with all the requirements and explain everything in detail before we begin the process.
Commercial electric rates are going up and without an alternative way to power your business your operating costs and organization are at the mercy of the utilities.
Going solar puts a power plant on your property and money back in your business. Solar technologies offers affordable solar solutions so you can control your energy costs long-term.
We have a clear process at CPM Solar, LLC.
- We evaluate your solar system requirements depending on the type of business you are in
- We review your financial options that will greatly benefit your business
- We recommend system installer/product manufacturer/warranty’s/financial options
- Project oversight design through construction and utility connection
- We provide the insight and experience for you to make informed decisions that will save you time and reduce cost
You can either lease or get a loan for your Solar Installation if you are not going to be paying in full at the time of installation. The Project Manager will go over all the options and advantages with you.
All of our leases and loans are designed to keep things simple and make your new solar system fit both your energy needs and your finances. No matter what your financial situation, CPM Solar can help you attain your solar and energy savings goals.
Leasing: having a system installed on your property and leasing it OR
Buying: an outright system purchase.
Short Term Loan: We also offer a number of financing options.
PACE is an innovative program that makes it possible for owners of commercial and industrial properties to obtain low-cost, long-term financing for energy-efficiency, water conservation and renewable energy projects. PACE statutes authorize municipalities and counties to work with private sector lenders to provide upfront financing to property owners for qualified projects, and to collect the repayment through annual assessments on the property’s real estate tax bill.
