Benefits of Your Church Going Solar

Solar is good for the environment

Environmental Impact

Solar energy is a great way to make your organization more environmentally friendly. Not only does it have less environmental impact than other sources, but with the rise in electrical rates and falling costs for solar systems you’ll be able to cost-effectively reduce carbon emissions.

Monetary savings

Monetary Savings

In most cases, converting a church from electrical to solar power makes a lot of sense in terms of economics. By saving money on your church’s power needs, you will be able to allocate more of your budget to the issues closest to your heart. In this way, going solar can help you spread your message.

Property value increase

Increase Real Estate Value

By adding solar to your church, you will effectively be making your property more valuable. Commercial properties with solar installed add an extra incentive for buyers, which usually translates into a faster close and a higher purchase price. Consider going solar and contact us today.

What Is the Inflation Reduction Act and How Can It Help Our Church?

Passed in August of 2022, the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) is one of the most powerful pro-solar laws ever passed by the United States Congress.

The law will invest heavily in addressing climate change, making it one of the largest investments into this issue ever. Churches and nonprofits stand to gain in a big way after the signing of this bill.

The IRA expanded the tax benefit offered to for-profit businesses to the nonprofit sector.

This means that churches are now eligible to receive up to 30% of the cost of their solar conversion project in cash back after the completion of the project.

In addition to the 30% tax credit, there are three other add-on credits that can apply:

  • Domestic Hardware – 10%
  • Energy Community – 10%
  • Clean Energy Production Credit
  • Low Income – 10%

This puts the total potential tax credit at 60%, if all of the above criteria are met for an individual project.

How can Churches Convert to Solar Energy?

Step 1: Solar Consultation

The first step to determine whether a solar energy system can work for your church or religious organization is to call for a free consultation. The person you speak with will have specific questions about your current energy consumption, as well as the physical dimensions of your church. After those questions have been answered, the process for assessing the feasibility of a solar power transformation will be performed.

Step 2: Solar Installation

If the feasibility assessment comes back positive, the solar installation process can begin. There will be permits that need to be obtained and we will help you navigate this during the installation process. Generally speaking, the installation process for churches converting to solar power takes approximately two to three months.

Step 3: Solar Activation

Once the installation process has been completed, all that’s left is to activate your new solar system. After activation, the solar conversion process is complete and you are on your way to lower electric bills and environmental stewardship.
