Monthly Events:
Chicago Solar Power Meetup (Solar Power Meetup in Chicago and Central Illinois
We host monthly free gatherings of professionals and the interested public to learn about how solar works to save you money. 

I believe companies can free up significant capital for growth and innovation by leveraging new technologies. It is now possible to save upwards of 80% off your current spend on electricity with rooftop solar and energy conservation with LED lighting. This is possible because the price of these technologies has fallen by 75% since 2010. You will notice that major retailers like IKEA, Walmart and Target and high tech companies like Apple, and Google are already going solar en masse.

I do three things:
A) Evaluate your current energy usage;
B) Identify opportunities to free up capital with solar PV, battery storage and LED lighting technologies; and
C) Find ways to implement savings with a variety of financial tools including no money down solutions, incentives, and accelerated depreciation (MACRS). Evaluate, Identify, Find. This simple process can unlock hidden growth opportunities.

My goal is to help Midwest manufacturers do more with less, levelize your long term cost of energy, and strengthen your market position. If this sounds worth while please contact me at 217.722.0429 m / tim@montaguebrands.com

Thank you and have a great day!

The Business Case for Solar Power in 2017 – Why Solar is the Fastest Growing Industry in the U.S.
Today, business owners in Illinois pay 9-14 cents per kWh (in some states this rate can be 20 cents or more). By installing solar power you can bring the effective cost of electricity down by 60-75%. Commercial and industrial facilities that spend thousands of dollars a month on electricity can save tens of thousands of dollars a year by going solar. Read more

Three Reason Solar is the Fastest Growing Industry
1) The price of solar panels has fallen 60% in the past five years. See this graph to appreciate how steep the decline has been. Solar is now affordable and you can generate significant savings by owning or leasing a system on your roof or field.

2) Electricity rates go up 3-4% on average each year. In ten years this means electric utilities cost 30% more than today. Going solar helps you avoid electric rate inflation and lock-in long term low electricity rates.

3) There are really good financial incentives that make solar more affordable than ever. There is currently a 30% Federal Incentive Tax Credit (ITC) and accelerated depreciation known as MACRS that reduce the cost of solar by up to 50%;  (both of these may be temporary – a reason to act now).
