With the holiday shopping season just around the corner, people everywhere will be looking for the perfect gifts for friends and family. While online shopping continues to explode in popularity, we here at SunPower by Sea Bright Solar have always had an affinity for supporting local businesses. Small businesses contribute heavily to the economy, provide valuable jobs for people in our community, and offer important competition to mega-retailers that don’t always have their customers in mind. That’s why we’re proud to join with many small businesses and encourage everyone to shop small.
SunPower by Sea Bright Solar has always strived to be more than just a supporter for small businesses—we want to be a partner they can depend on. One of the largest and most difficult hurdles to overcome for any business is overhead costs—expenses that you have to pay in order to keep your doors open and customers coming in. This includes things like rent, water, and even electricity to keep your lights on. For many businesses, it’s difficult to make any changes to overhead costs—while you may be able to make small changes, the vast majority of these costs are things you absolutely need and therefore are forced to pay for.
However, what if we told you there could be a way to cut your monthly energy costs down to a fraction of what they currently are, or even do away with them entirely? With solar, you can. A well-designed solar energy system could produce all of the energy you need, eliminating your electric bill and reducing your overhead costs by a significant amount each month. And when you consider that Southern California has some of the most expensive energy in the country, that savings could make a huge difference for your business.
How to Bring Solar Power to Your Business
Don’t think you can afford to switch your business over to solar? Don’t think it’s possible because of where you’re located or what kind of building you’re in? SunPower by Sea Bright Solar offers a variety of solar arrangements that are specifically designed to help businesses of all sizes make the switch and invest in their future. In addition to traditional solar installation and cash purchase options, we also offer a wide selection of business-oriented financing and other solar power agreements.
Power Purchase Agreements
Power purchase agreements are a way you can switch to solar without paying a single cent out of your pocket. When you sign into a power purchase agreement, your solar installer comes to you and installs solar on your property at their expense. In exchange, the agreement you sign means you’ll be purchasing the power your solar energy system generates directly from your solar installer. Does this mean you’ll still have an electric bill? Yes, but it will be dramatically reduced. Power purchase agreements can have electric rates as much as 50% lower than energy costs from the public grid. You won’t have to worry about maintenance, upkeep, or repair for your solar energy system at all, and you’ll reap all of the benefits of clean, green energy. On top of that, you’ll be locked in on a set rate structure that can last anywhere from 15 to 25 years. That means no matter how much the cost of energy from the public grid might continue to spiral out of control, you’ll know exactly how much you’ll pay for the energy you use. That kind of planning just isn’t possible with conventional grid power.
Commercial Financing Options
SunPower by Sea Bright Solar also offers loans and financing options designed specifically for commercial customers. With a specially-designed loan, you could bring the power of solar energy to your business with little to no change to how your business runs now. Think of it this way: instead of paying the energy company every month, you’ll make a payment on your solar energy system. These payments will remain stable, predictable, and steady across the life of your loan, whereas your energy costs could fluctuate wildly. Once the loan is paid off, you’ll then own your solar energy system and all of the power it produces. At that point, your energy costs will plummet to an absolute minimum, if not disappear entirely!
