Reduce your Operating Expenses
Many government entities are facing increasing pressure to reduce their operating expenses and lower their budget. One way they can do this is by taking a close look at their utility costs.
Solar energy systems can be installed in many capacities across various government offices, garages, parks, schools and more. Solar helps to stabilize energy costs for the long term and create an increased operating budget for capital outlay through lower utility costs
Most government systems are installed via a Power Purchase Agreement, in which a private equity partner owns the system and basically sells the power to the public consumer at a significantly lower utility rate then they’re paying to their current utility provider. This is usually a 10-20 year term — the public consumer can choose to renew the power purchase agreement or in many cases the private partner will donate the system. From that time on the energy is produced at little to no cost and eliminates most if not all that they pay to the utility provider, resulting in free energy. More and more entities are taking advantage of this system as our government strives to set a benchmark of support for renewable energy and our health and environment.
Ground-mounted solar projects often achieve the highest ROI by allowing for optimal system sizing, design and layout, improving both constructability and long-term energy yields.
Large rooftops are the most popular locations for commercial solar installations. We have completed hundreds of these installations.
“I would highly recommend VES. All of their workers were very professional and kept me well informed of what they were doing and when. From the install of the ground mount system to setting the 48 panels — the electricians were very knowledgeable, workmanship was excellent.”
“The warranty and reputation are admirable. All aspects of the transaction were professional, timely, informative and top-notch when it came to customer service by explaining, problem solving, listening to requests and overall communication.”
“I had a wonderful experience with VES from initial contact to installation. I don’t do a lot of reviews but I don’t think these guys are getting the notice they should be getting. They have a professional setup team, construction team and ongoing service team. The materials are of a high quality and are designed to last. The planning and installation was very carefully done with a great deal of consideration to system effectiveness and aesthetics.”
“I have become very concerned about America’s use of energy, primarily fossil fuels. Our use of these fuels has a significant impact on our environment. I found VES to be the perfect partner. They have taken care of every one of the many daunting steps from grant application to turning on the switch. I now have solar installations on all of my retail stores using 50% less electricity and with pay back periods as little as 5 years.”
