Benefits & Incentives of Commercial Solar Panels
We are among the leading NC experts in solar panel installation in the Carolinas for both residential and commercial projects. Commercial solar energy awareness and popularity are increasing due to its many benefits and incentives.
What are the benefits?
Renewable energy has the potential to significantly lower your businesses’ power expenses and protect your company against escalating energy costs. Many businesses, farms, non-profits, congregations, faith groups, and schools are moving to solar energy for its many benefits, including:
- Reduced operating expenses
- Locked in energy costs for years to come
- Implementation of sustainable business practices
- Leveraging of “green” marketing
Solar installations also serve as a visible commitment to sustainable community development and a unique avenue to communicate your organization’s values and beliefs.
Are there still current incentives in place for businesses?
Yes! Any size business will benefit from an installed solar system’s operating cost savings and asset value. Business owners love that systems pay for themselves in a matter of years – and keep producing cost savings for decades. Additional incentives include:
- 26% Federal Tax Credit
- MACRS Accelerated Depreciation
- Maintenance-free energy creation
- Monitoring reports detail production in real time
What is real-time performance monitoring?
Every RED Group solar panel system allows businesses to track and see first-hand how their system is operating. SolarEdge monitoring allows solar energy users to see real-time performance metrics and site energy measurements. Access to this information is crucial for data analysis.
Monitoring solar energy output also provides assurance that your investment in solar energy is paying off. Your organization has a convenient way to track current power and cumulative energy output for the month, year, and lifetime of your solar panel system.

Examples of Our Commercial Solar Work
We are proud of the many commercial solar projects we’ve had the opportunity to work on over the years. Two noteworthy projects are Birdsong Brewing Co. in Charlotte and Thomasville Pediatrics in Thomasville.
Birdsong Brewing Co. is the first brewery in Charlotte to invest in solar energy. We installed a 75-kilowatt system that includes 220 solar panels on the roof. The brewery owners, Chris & Tara Goulet, share “the panels generate about 50 percent of the brewery’s power needs, saving them roughly $15,000 a year.” As mentioned above, you can see for yourself their real-time system performance reports to see their solar energy metrics here.
In addition to lowering electric rates, Thomasville Pediatrics values their solar energy system for its ability to ensure refrigerated vaccines and medicines stay cool even during power outages. Dr. Donald Winters of Thomasville Pediatrics, shares, “solar energy will replace 90 percent of the power required for the building. Plus, [we] are reducing [our] footprint in the world and [helping to] preserve it.”
