Office Buildings

Commercial properties contend with many variables to keep offices efficient and profitable. A commercial solar system can take high and fluctuating energy costs out of the equation and return control and higher profitability to building owners. Tenant energy use matches up ideally with solar production and the experts at HES Solar can show you how a properly designed and built solar array can meet all your building’s energy needs. You’ll be impressed with the short payback period a solar or solar with storage commercial system can deliver. HES Solar will develop a solar power energy system tailored to your building’s and tenants’ needs designed around your property’s unique layout and available space. We’re a local company with commercial solar installation experience to ensure you get the right system for decades of clean energy production.

We’ll guide you through the Investment Tax Credit’s (ITC) 26% tax credit, the Self Generated Incentive Program (SGIP) rebate, the Federal Bonus Depreciation which allows 100% of the allowable tax basis to be deducted in the first year, the California MACRS Depreciation which allows treatment of your solar project as a depreciable asset, and we’ll show you more benefits that augment the energy cost savings of a solar system as well as how pairing solar with other property improvements can add to the financial advantages.

Many businesses today seek out ways to ensure renewable energy use, and there’s no better, more direct, and more efficient way for tenants to accomplish that than through the use of on-site rooftop or carport solar systems. Solar is a significant draw for new tenants as well as an excellent tenant retention motivator. With all the wins that solar provides it makes good business sense to let us show you the incredible opportunities this cost-saving green energy can provide to your building.

Net Energy Metering 3.0 (NEM 3.0) is the incoming law created by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC). The new tariffs and fees will impact both residential and commercial solar systems built in California. 

As this notice is posted in November of 2022, the Proposed Decision from the CPUC outlining the proposed NEM 3.0 terms is expected soon. This comes after a year’s delay. Once the new agreement is finalized and passed into law, there will exist a designation of the deadline under which new systems will continue to qualify for NEM 2.0 rates. 

The new NEM 3.0 rates will be designed to lower the value of electricity during the daytime hours, when solar is producing, and increase the value of electricity during the evening hours, when solar homes and businesses purchase electricity. In short, NEM 3.0 will create a “sell low, buy high” proposition to new solar system owners. 

To Californians looking to install a solar system on their home or commercial building, the NEM 2.0 rates will be preferred. As of this post, the solar industry does not know the details of how different the NEM 3.0 rates will be from the NEM 2.0 rates.
