Proprietary Energy Savings Program for Connecticut Businesses
Looking for commercial solar panels? Are you a CT business with high energy costs and tax liability? If so you’ve found the right place. Without any upfront investment, businesses are able to adopt solar and begin saving money as soon as the system is installed and becomes operational. We’ve developed a program that allows U.S. businesses to install solar and pay off the system overtime using your federal and state subsidies.
Your company has no risk.
Solar One will operate, insure, and maintain the system while the dealership owns the system outright and reaps the benefits of sun for decades to come.
Whether you go solar or not you’re going to purchase power either way.
Solar is no longer a matter of interest, it’s a matter of choice!
Solar For Business
#1 Connecticut Commercial Solar Company
If you’ve never explored a solar project for your business or you’ve looked at numerous solar proposals that involved a substantial up front cost, taking out a long term loan, or required a 3rd party owning your solar array and keeps most of the benefits, this message is for you.
After months of meetings with decisions makers and hearing each of the reasons why businesses choose not to implement a solar project, Solar One developed a solution that removes all of the pain points and all of the barriers to commercial solar ownership.
Regardless of what state your facilities are located, your company will enjoy the following benefits…..
Your company’s project will be 100% paid for by incentives.
There’s no ROI to calculate and wait for— because the savings are immediate and there are no out of pocket costs either. From the first month your solar array goes live, you will see a substantial reduction in your operating expenses due to electricity savings.
There are no cap x budget requirements from your company, and there are no construction payments.
You won’t be required to share 80% of the benefits with a 3rd party ownership, as you would with a Power Purchase Agreement, PPA or lease. In other words— your company will actually own the solar array.
Once you receive a proposal from Solar One, you won’t be asking if going solar makes sense or not—you’ll be asking Solar One to put solar panels on your entire portfolio of properties.
Whether you have 10,000 or 10 million square feet of roof top space, whether your family owned or fortune 500, we’d like to have a conversation with you in order to learn more about your business.
Please check the information below and connect with us. We look forward to speaking with you soon.
Solar One has constructed over 40 Commercial Solar Projects in different parts of the country, ranging from school districts, to retail, manufacturing, multi-family and other commercial properties. Many of our customers have had us do 3, 4, 5, 6 different properties. We have dozens of additional projects currently under contract. Our Director is based in Hartford, CT and is available for in person meetings.
For conservative purposes these are the numbers in Gloomy Connecticut.
50,000 square foot roof top = $1 million in savings over 25 years
100,000 square foot roof = $2 million in savings over 25 years
1.333 = production factor in CT for example (if at 180 degree tilt)
1.333 x 700 kw = annual kWh (kilowatt-hour) produce in year = 933
A kilowatt hour is when you add in your supply delivery, taxes, conservatively worth $0.08 = 1 kWh
Supply rate on average = 5.5
Take $0.08 x 933 (annual kwH produced in a year)
= ~$70,000/year in savings
Which = $6,000/month in electricity savings
Or ~$2 million in savings over 25 year warrantied life.
Solar Panel Building
The larger your commercial facility the higher it utility costs. Connecticut has moderately low electric rates compared to the other U.S, but by no means is the cheapest. The average cost of electricity in Connecticut is 16.81 ¢/kWh. By producing your own energy via the sun, you can offset these costs considerably. On average our clients with roofs over 100,000 square feet are saving six figures in annual operating expenses with zero upfront expense. This results in immediate ROI and cash flow since we front load federal and state subsidies to pay for the solar system spread out over 25 years instead of a requiring large cap ex or loan only to wait 5-7 years for an ROI. Solar power for commercial use has historically been an investment requiring capital expenditure, taking out a loan, or sharing the tax benefits with a 3rd party through a PPA, but this is no longer the case with Solar One.
We work with manufacturing, packaging, food, distribution, retail, warehouses, hospitals, hotels, resorts, casinos apartment complexes, cold storage, electronics, defense, aerospace and much more. Own your solar panels for commercial buildings without having to take a loan, or a Power Purchase Agreement. Leverage your tax liability to pay for the system upfront through our proprietary energy savings program. Contact us today for a free consolation and savings proposal.
CT Commercial Solar Incentives
State Solar Tax Exemptions
Tax credits and rebates are very attractive for going solar in Connecticut. Thanks to CT tax breaks for solar, no taxes required on solar panels. The Sales and Use Tax Exemption for Solar and Geothermal Systems, means that you won’t have to pay any taxes on the purchase of your system.
When you put solar panels on your roof, you are entitled to credits from the excess power your system generates. Connecticut’s utilities has a net metering policy that credits you for the extra electricity your system produces, and allows you to use those credits when your system doesn’t generate enough power. A common myth across New England is that solar doesn’t make financial sense that far north due to the long dark winters. Thanks to net metering, businesses can stock up on credits by the excess electricity a properly sized system generates throughout the summer and shoulder seasons. You can use those credits built up in the summer to get you through the winter with cheap electricity. This accelerates return on investment for building owners and businesses.
Connecticut Green Bank’s Solar Incentive Initiatives
The Green Bank of Connecticut started a fund to help commercial properties finance solar energy projects. The C-PACE initiative (Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy) and the Solar PPA incentive offered by the Green Bank are useful tools to minimize the upfront cost of a commercial array. The C-PACE program provides businesses with the opportunity to fund environmentally friendly upgrades to their facilities. This is achieved through a voluntary benefit assessment seamlessly integrated into the property tax bill. Businesses can leverage this program to secure low-interest capital for the implementation of their solar energy systems.
Key Aspects of the C-PACE Financing Program
The owner repays over time through a senior assessment place on the property. Assessment stays with the property regardless of ownership.
Eversource offers the top utility net metering program in Connecticut.

Serving the Connecticut Community
CT is bordered by Rhode Island to the east, Massachusetts to the north, New York to the west, while the Long Island Sound sits to the south. Its capital Hartford surprisingly isn’t the most populated city, Bridgeport is. Historically the state is part of New England as well as the tri-state area with New York and New Jersey, which together make up metropolitan New York City. The state is named for the Connecticut River which approximately bisects the state. The word “Connecticut” is derived from various anglicized spellings of “Quononoquett” (Conanicut), a Mohegan-Pequot word for “long tidal river”. Known as the “Constitution State”, the “Nutmeg State”, the “Provisions State”, and the “Land of Steady Habits”, it was influential in the development of the United States (Connecticut Compromise).
