Add Value to Your Business with Solar

Want to get off the grid and protect against rising energy costs?

Solar power has become mainstream in the Commercial Real Estate (CRE) industry. Many companies are choosing solar energy because of tenant demands and the allure of positive press coverage. However, if you’re still weighing the benefits of solar and whether the upgrade is worth it for your building and customers, consider these facts.

Decrease operating expenses and boost revenue

Solar power can substantially reduce or eliminate utility expenses.

Generate ROI

You can generate a return on your investment in just 3-5 years. Companies that leverage solar power can gain anywhere from hundreds of thousands to over a million dollars in savings. This is especially true in Texas, where we rank #4 in sunniest states in the U.S. Solar is one of our greatest assets—capitalize on it!

Boost tenant confidence & lease renewals

The Department of Energy reports that buildings with solar energy features and LEED certifications earn higher rents and enjoy lower vacancy than other buildings. When tenants see their building investing in technologies and updating their facilities, they can feel confident that it will perform well in the long-term, which boosts lease renewals and long-term leases.

Attract desirable tenants

More than half of Fortune 500 companies are committed to limiting their greenhouse gas emissions. Smaller organizations are also following in their footsteps. They will search for commercial real estate that is energy-efficient and supports their pledge to reduce their carbon footprints. Investing in solar will enable your property to be considered by these highly prized tenants.

Install for free or low-cost

In many cases, Commercial Roofs of Texas has been able to add solar to a building when installing a new roof or replacing an existing roof at no extra cost! Significant tax incentives are also available to you, which allows most property owners to write off up to 90% of the costs. With free or nearly-free installation, impressive savings on energy bills, and the potential for long-term leases at higher rents, solar is a smart investment for commercial building owners and property managers.
