Below are some of the most common questions about commercial solar installations for your business. Not to mention, Beacon is an expert for solar panels for business.
How much do solar panels cost?
Each system is custom designed for the property, so there is no “one size fits all” for solar panel systems. The installation begins with a customized quote based on several items, including how much your utility bill is, how large your roof is, and where the sun is. For commercial installations, Beacon Solar gives customers the choice between various Tier-1 solar panels.

Solar Energy and Energy Storage reduces operating costs related to electricity usage, including electrical consumption over time (kWh), on demand (kW), and transmission costs. Producing electricity on site enables businesses to reinvest those savings and become more competitive.
Is solar financing available?
Beacon Solar works with lenders to find you the best financing to fund your solar installation.
What is the latest news in Massachusetts for Solar?
In late 2017, the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources (MA DOER) developed Solar Massachusetts Renewable Target (SMART) to double its solar capacity to over three gigawatts (GW). SMART has replaced the previous solar incentive program in Massachusetts, Solar Renewable Energy Credits (SRECs). SMART provides a monthly payment to property owners for the energy produced. You also qualify for a 30% federal tax credit and will receive up to $1,000 state tax credit. Commercial customers are also able to claim MACRS depreciation on the system. If a customer chooses a solar lease or Power Purchase Agreement (commercial customers only) instead of purchasing or financing, they are not eligible for any federal or Massachusetts solar incentives.

Over the next 10-20 years, SMART payments are sent out monthly for the energy you produce.

This allows you to own your solar array, take advantage of all the tax credits and rebates, and make a profit in the first year.

You pay nothing out of pocket and still have greater savings with your low monthly payments.
