Solar electricity for your business

Step 1 - Review financial implications
It is important to review the financial implications before deciding to install a solar electric system. The ultimate out-of-pocket cost will depend on whether you purchase the system outright, obtain a loan, or lease the system. Examine all of your options in order to choose the financing method that best fits with your overall business plan.
SRP offers commercial customers the following options for a solar installation:
Step 2 - Review process checklist
