Commercial Install Rebates & Incentives

At both the state and federal levels, there are many renewable energy rebates, incentives, and energy credits available for businesses that install a solar array. These programs can reduce the cost of installing a solar array by tens of thousands of dollars, making an investment in solar more affordable and attractive to business owners and managers.

SunRay Solar will help you design a system that fits your needs. Then, we will review all the potential rebate, incentive, and credit programs with you and conduct a financial model of your system, so that you can see the benefit.
