Holistic Analysis Maximizes Project-Level Economics
For companies with large and geographically diverse real estate holdings, a properly executed Solar Portfolio Assessment provides a comprehensive analysis of the project-level solar feasibility across each individual facility. When solar project economics are favorable, companies can capitalize in several different ways, such as entering into long-term low-cost solar electricity purchase agreements, or by owning solar systems directly and earning attractive ROI.
Project Economic Viability
The underlying economics of individual solar projects in the U.S. varies dramatically depending on the location of the potential project site. The key variables that drive project economics include:
- Local environmental conditions (i.e. solar resources and temperature ranges)
- Retail cost of electricity
- Physical site attributes
- Availability of state/local solar incentives
- All-in cost of the proposed system installation
The economic viability of a solar project is a dynamic analysis that frequently changes over time (and often quite quickly) due to factors such as new incentive programs being launched or dramatic swings in the underlying retail cost of electricity. When done correctly, a Solar Project Portfolio Assessment allows large businesses to confidently make fact-based decisions concerning the economic feasibility of incorporating solar energy into their energy procurement plan.
