Solar Power Systems for Commercial or Industrial Buildings

Wilderness Trace Solar, Inc. of Danville, Kentucky designs and installs solar energy systems for commercial and industrial buildings in Central Kentucky. Before purchasing your own system, you should consider these factors:

How do I know if I’m eligible for Solar?

  1. Solar energy systems produce the most energy facing south. East and west facing panels can be functional, but will not produce optimal energy.
  2. Both roof-mounted and ground-mounted systems are available. In the absence of a south facing roof, ground-mounted systems may be better provided space if available. Click on these links to learn more about the pros and cons of roof-mounted vs. ground-mounted systems.
  3. Either mounting option requires as unshaded of an area as possible.

What Incentives Are There for Businesses to Install Solar?

As a business, you are eligible to take advantage of the Business Energy Investment Tax Credit (ITC). This provides you with a tax credit at 30% of the initial cost of your Solar Energy System Installation. More information can be found here:

Businesses also can take advantage of a Modified Accelerated Cost-Recovery System (MACRS) depreciation schedule. More information can be found here:

Commercial “for profit” buildings that are located in a rural area, or within a city of less than 50,000 inhabitants, are eligible to apply for a REAP (Rural Energy for America Program) that will defray up to 25% of the investment cost for a PV system.
