If you own your building, solar makes sense. There’s no better way to show your neighbors that you care about your community and you can decrease your building’s operating costs (and carbon footprint) with an investment that pays and makes you feel great.
Clean, green energy from a solar array is one of the best ways to decrease your commercial building’s operating costs—on any scale. Solar energy offers an element of stability when it comes to expense reporting and forecasting, locking in energy pricing and insulating your business from utility market volatility for up to 25 years.
For some business owners, solar serves as a great back-up power source, while for others it can be a means of reducing their utility bills—or even eliminating them. With help from YSG Solar, you can install a solar system that is custom-designed specifically to your commercial building’s needs.
YSG Solar is a Project Developer and long-term operator. Our Developments benefit multiple stakeholders including long term power off-takers, local communities and electric utilities. Our strategy is identifying sits that provide value to the electric distrubution system and minimal disturbance to the local land use.

In addition to important details relating to municipal planning and code enforcement, every YSG associate can help you assess whether or not your property is right for solar in the first place.
Have you considered how close are neighboring buildings are? What proportion of sun versus shade exposure the site gets? Can your roof area accommodate photovoltaic panels?
During our initial consultation, we’ll get to the bottom of your unique situation and deliver a cost-effective plan for design and installation.
Zero Cost Incentives, Rebates & Financing
Part of the value of working with YSG Solar on your project is our wealth of experience navigating the complex and varied options of paying for solar. In addition to taking advantage of the 30% federal tax credit on the total cost of your project, your bottom line can also benefit from other forms of tax relief like accelerated depreciation through the Modified Accelerated Cost Recovery System (MACRS).
This incentive program allows business owners to front-load the depreciation of solar technology investments, lowering the business’ net income and decreasing its tax burden. You may be eligible for special financing programs, on the statewide level with NYSERDA PACE and local programs as well. At YSG Solar, we'll help you determine if PACE financing is the right solution for you or whether a long-term power purchase agreement may be the right option.
