Committed to sustainability and corporate social responsibility, our development choices make good business sense and have a positive impact on the communities where we work.
Investing in solar PV facilities reduce climate-related risk and dependence on fossil fuels. It also reduces financial risk due to rising utility costs. Solar PV facilities creates a barrier against rising utility costs by offering predictable pricing. A typical power purchase agreement or net metering credit agreement offers a price at a discount when compared to the current cost of grid electricity, with an escalation rate well below the anticipated rise in utility costs. As the years go by, your savings grow!
Solar PV facilities are safe and environmentally friendly. Unlike fossil fuels, solar energy is abundantly available and emissions-free. In addition, solar PV facilities produce minimal noise or air pollution during operation.
While the number of sunny days is important for solar system efficiency, it is only one of many factors in power generation – after all, it’s still possible to get a sunburn on a cloudy day! With solar PV facilities, the only moving part is the sun. Consequently, solar PV systems enjoy lower maintenance costs and boast silent operation. Finally, many of today’s solar PV panels are sold with 25 year warranties – or even more - and are capable of generating power for many years beyond that timeframe.
