Commercial Solar Solutions

Commercial Solar Solutions
Improved cash flow is the goal of many business owners. This goal can be elusive at times, leaving the desire for an element of control. Operational expenses to make a business run smoothly can fluctuate up and down but mostly up. These costs lower the profit margins in your cash flow. Purchasing a solar system guarantees control of your electric costs. With control of your electrical cost comes better control of your overhead. Solar reduces overhead, improves cash flow, and lowers your tax liability.
Our services extend to commercial properties covering all of Maryland, Delaware, and New Jersey.
Dear Sunrise Solar, Inc,
We want to take this moment to thank you for your generous contribution to sponsor a team in the Queen Anne’s Baseball League. We are truly grateful to have sponsors like yourself. Your contribution directly benefits the team with uniforms, equipment, and county fees. Without sponsors like yourself, this season would not have been as successful. We look forward to working with you again in the future. On behalf of the board, the players, the coaches, and families, thank you again for everything you have done for us.

Our Process
STEP 1: Site Inspection

Our technicians and designers will visit the location to assess your property and its situation. The available area for your solar array will be carefully measured. If a roof mount system is desired, our in-house roofing experts will verify a sound roof. Shade will be measured using the Sun-Eye device. We will determine an average electricity usage by reviewing a minimum of one year's worth of electric bills. At this point a recommendation on the best system for your situation will be made.

STEP 2: Design

Using information gathered at the Site Inspection, our designers will craft a custom system unique to your site and needs. Residential systems typically require three days to develop while larger commercial or agricultural systems require up to two weeks for design.

STEP 3: Proposal and Agreement

At this stage the design will be presented and fully explained to you and down payment is required to move forward.

Step 4: Interconnection to Grid

We begin the process of contacting your current electricity provider to begin the interconnection to the grid. Building permits are also requested by us through local government.

Step 5: Installation

Our experienced installers begin the process of installing roof rigging or field preparation and panel installation.

Step 6: Inspection

County building inspectors are then contacted. This process is completed with a Sunrise Solar agent on site. You do not need to be present. Though if you are curious about the process, we welcome your attendance. Once inspections have passed, a new meter is installed, the system is registered with your power company and grant paperwork is completed.

Step 7: Saving Money

This is the fun part - receiving your electric bill either zeroed out or with significant savings.

How will solar benefit your business?


As a business owner every decision you make affects the future outcome of your bottom line. A solar system  should be part of your business plan. Solar does  take care of your electric bill, but there is more. Solar can reduce  overhead, improve cash flow, and  lower your tax liability. Let's look at each aspect of the  benefit to your business. Solar will reduce your overhead by lowering or even eliminating your electric bill. This alone provides such stability to your ever rising energy costs.


 The second part of this equation is that you will now have your electricity prices fixed and no longer be subject to the rising costs of electric. The improved cash flow comes from SREC's (solar renewable energy credits). Most states have mandated that power companies purchase renewable energy.


 This is done through solar systems that are installed privately. Your solar consultant will help you understand your local market. Per every 1000 kWh's you will receive  one REC. You will then be paid for every REC generated. lf  you produce excess power that you don't use, you will also get paid for that energy as well.  How much you get paid and when you get paid will vary from state to state.


The standard practice is to get paid once a year at current electric wholesale pricing. The  final component to benefiting your business is the 30%tax credit and the depreciation. By purchasing a solar system, you will receive a 30% lnvestment Tax Credit from the lRS. The 30% ITC is based on the total cost  of the solar system. The 30% ITC can be rolled for up to 20 years.  Most businesses use the 30% ITC in a shorter time frame.


The second  component on the tax side is the bonus depreciation.  Through 2019 you will be able to  depreciate IOO% of the total asset in year one. This can be  very helpful when facedwith a large tax burden. lf you don't need the bonus depreciation, then you can use a standard depreciation schedule.
