Managing Health Care Energy Costs with Solar
Running a medical office, hospital, clinic or health care facility here in Northern California comes with a lot of utility considerations as an energy-intensive industry. In fact, health care facilities were responsible for 8% of the total energy consumed in the US in the year 2012, and those energy costs rose by over 50% between 2003 and 2008. These expenditures that make up the infrastructure of our health care system are exactly why solar energy is on the rise among medical offices and properties here in California!
Sun Light & Power is a leader in the San Francisco Bay Area, as a full service solar design and installation contractor serving the needs of health care providers. From evaluating your property for solar panel installation to making sure your organization can reap the full benefits of the available tax incentives and rebates, Sun Light & Power has the expertise you need for decades of energy savings.
Federal Solar Tax Credit: Cash in before it’s gone!
The Federal Investment Tax Credit (ITC) currently offers a tax deduction equal to 30% of the total cost of a commercial solar installation. You may also qualify for accelerated federal MARCS and state depreciation credits, shortening your cost recovery and speeding up your return on your solar investment. Not to mention, all of your solar system installation costs are also exempt from property tax increases.
But you need to act soon, because 2019 is the final year to receive the maximum 30% solar tax credit deduction. Any solar installations that are completed after 2019 will qualify for a reduced deduction, until the year 2022 when the deduction rate will level out at 10%.
