At Tier 1 Solar Solutions, we provide comprehensive commercial solar energy services, including:

  • Commercial Solar System Ownership

  • Commercial Solar Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs)

Commercial Solar System Ownership

With our commercial solar system ownership, businesses can own their solar energy systems outright. This option allows businesses to take advantage of available tax credits and incentives, leading to a faster return on investment.

Commercial Solar Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs)

Through our partnership with Sunnova, we offer commercial solar PPAs. A PPA is a financial agreement where a solar provider installs, owns, and maintains the solar energy system on your property, and you agree to purchase the electricity generated by the system at a predetermined rate. This allows businesses to benefit from solar energy with no upfront costs.

Federal   and   State   Incentives   for
Commercial   Solar

Federal Incentives

Federal Investment Tax Credit (ITC)

The Federal Investment Tax Credit (ITC) allows businesses to deduct 30% of the cost of installing a solar energy system from their federal taxes. Here's how it works:

  1. Eligibility: Businesses that purchase and install a new solar energy system.

  2. Claiming the Credit: The credit is claimed when filing your annual federal tax return. To claim the ITC, complete IRS Form 3468.

  3. Value: Deduct 30% of the total system cost from your federal tax liability.

Modified Accelerated Cost Recovery System (MACRS)

MACRS allows businesses to recover investments in solar through depreciation deductions. Under MACRS, businesses can deduct a significant portion of the solar system cost over a 5-year period, reducing taxable income and enhancing ROI.

State Incentives

Nevada

  • NV Energy Incentives: NV Energy offers various incentives for commercial solar installations, significantly reducing initial costs.

  • Net Metering: Businesses can receive credits for excess electricity generated by their solar system, reducing future energy bills.

NV Energy

  • Rate: Credits are provided at the full retail rate for the excess electricity generated.

  • Time of Use: NV Energy offers both standard and Time of Use (TOU) rate schedules. Under TOU, credits can vary depending on the time of day the excess energy is generated.

  • Expiration: Credits roll over month-to-month and do not expire, ensuring that you can utilize them when your consumption exceeds generation.
