Solar as an asset
With the deregulation of energy and the ability to take advantage of net metering, solar is now more affordable than anytime in history. Consider purchasing a solar system as an investment. Individuals are seeing 17.5% annual return on investment and this is even bigger for businesses. This is also a way to offset your tax bill this year. Instead of paying your taxes, purchase a solar system and receive nice payback. On a $30,000 system, you get a $9000 tax break. These numbers are scale-able.
