The Solar Energy Industries Association and Vote Solar recently released their second annual report, Solar Means Business 2013: Top U.S. Commercial Solar Users. As the cost of photovoltaic systems has continued to drop, an increasing number of businesses across the country, large and small, have invested in on-site photovoltaic installations. In mid-2013 collective commercial deployment totaled 3,380 MW at over 32,800 commercial warehouses, stores and facilities, an increase of more than 40% over the previous year.
Energy is the largest operating expense for many businesses, and as traditional energy sources continue to rise, deploying solar technology enables them to lock in fixed prices for decades, reduce energy costs, improve profits–all of which provide a business a competitive edge in the marketplace.
