How Solar Makes Financial Sense – Understanding the ins and outs of solar finance. RSVP Here. Join us Nov. 8 in Chicago for the Solar Power Happy Hour at Coalition Energy. Financing Solar Projects and understanding how solar creates financial benefits for business owners, utilities, and consumers. Solar Power is the fastest growing industry in the U.S. today. Here in Illinois we have a vibrant solar economy. But there are many questions that must be answered: How to pay for the equipment? What is the expected ROI? What are the alternatives to purchasing equipment including financing, leasing and Power Purchase Agreements? How do you determine if a project makes financial sense vs. alternative investments?
Investing in a solar power system for your home or business can make a lot of financial sense. Solar can generate most or all of your electricity demand, so whatever you are paying for electric utilities, can be shaved off your balance sheet. But you have to be smart and creative and work with the right partners. We’ll examine some case studies and look at how these deals ‘pencil out’ so to speak (make financial sense). We’ll look at commercial, residential and utility scale projects. We’ll discuss the pros and cons of adding battery storage. And we’ll network and enjoy some refreshments and good cheer!
If you are a subject matter expert in the solar or renewable energy space and would like to speak at any of our upcoming meetups we’d love to hear from you. Please contact Tim Montague 217.722.0429 m or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org (please put Solar Power Happy Hour in the subject line). Growth for the Greater Good!
