Simply put, solar power is the conversion of sunlight into electricity. This is done directly by converting light into electric currents, or indirectly with lenses and mirrors. The benefits of solar power are numerous, but most significant is that solar power can greatly help to reduce pollution. This is because solar energy emits fewer greenhouse gas emissions than fossil fuels. In a world that is becoming greatly aware of the rapid depletion of our natural resources, any solution to this issue is worth paying attention to. There are many myths that depreciate the value of solar power, but we believe the pros outweigh the cons. Here are a few other benefits of Solar Development:
- Financial incentives – the federal government may offer sizeable subsidies for businesses who implement solar power into their energy plans. This helps reduce the startup costs of solar power.
- Low environmental impact – greatly reduces pollution.
- Political benefits – if solar power becomes a standard installment in the majority of U.S. homes then the country will depend less on foreign support for gas, oil and other energy sources.
Energy Efficient Services (EES) is a leader in the renewable energy and efficient lighting industries. Our company offers a unique opportunity to our clients with the development of a “Hybrid” energy project that takes a comprehensive approach to combining solar power generation and energy efficiency retrofits. This powerful combination has enabled EES to offer the best of both worlds to its clients by utilizing the cost reduction solutions of energy efficiency while increasing ROI and project value with PPA solar revenue. When rebates and tax incentives are injected into this equation, you have the formula for a bankable energy project. Hybrid projects have been of interest particularly to utility companies who struggle to join their respective structures in developing and implementing a dynamic overall investment capable of reducing costs and generating cash flow for the long term.
We have built our company’s foundation around energy efficiency and Solar Development and we pride ourselves in our ability to offer complete green energy solutions, including:
- Site layout, design and engineering
- Procurement of interconnection, environmental surveys and permits
- PPA development and utility negotiation and structure
- Complete project financing
- Project implementation, management and construction
