What Are The Benefits Of Solar?
There are many benefits to transitioning an existing building or installing a solar power system as part of a new construction project.
This includes things such as:
Reduced Utility Costs
A Rapid Return On Your Investment
Protection Against Increased Utility Costs
Tax Incentives With Easy Financing Options
SREC Incentives (Tax free income)
Contributing To Local And National Job Growth
The earliest and most obvious benefits of going solar shows up in reduced energy costs. Most businesses and commercial properties who have our state-of-the-art solar power systems installed enjoy a significant reduction in overall energy costs.
Most properties with solar power are also eligible for federal and state tax incentives, as well as the ability to generate capital. Programs like the New Jersey Solar Renewable Energy Credit or SREC make it easier than ever to see a quick return on your investment.
Solar power also allows you to essentially “Lock In” your rate. Not being subject to rate increases can save you untold thousands of dollars in the future!
A building with solar can also enjoy more predictable energy costs. The properties we serve enjoy predictable energy bills for 30 years or more after install.
At the same time, solar power is increasingly popular for businesses and families who are actively shopping in the real estate market. A home or business with a solar power system has increased value and tend to sell much faster than those without solar.
How Does Solar Work?
A solar energy system relies on a special photovoltaic cell, which essentially collects energy from sunlight, and converts it to electricity. This process generates DC or Direct Current which is then sent to a state-of-the-art inverter. At that point, it is converted into AC, or Alternating Current, which most homes and businesses use to run indoor lights and appliances.
All our systems use sophisticated monitoring technology. This essentially taps into the data of the inverters to monitor system performance in real-time. If there is a discrepancy between performance and projected output, our system is alerted, and we can get to work to maximize system operation.
Each of our solar power systems include a Net Metering feature. New Jersey has a net-metering rule which means that the utility keeps track of what you consume vs what you produce. As your solar system produces energy during the day, the power you generate is sent to the power grid earning you credits and debits as you use energy from the grid at night. On a monthly basis the power company bills you the net results
Does Solar Help With Job Creation?
Solar power technology and services have advanced significantly in recent years, with the United States leading the way toward energy independence. In 2018 Solar jobs increased in 29 states. It’s also estimated that solar jobs increased by around 7% in 2019 alone. Remarkably, the solar industry is responsible for roughly 259,000 jobs per year.

Experienced Consulting Services
With over a decade of experience helping a wide range of clients, we use a custom approach to identifying your needs and the wide range of options that can help you meet your renewable energy goals.
The process starts with an introductory meeting and a careful analysis of your energy usage. This also helps to determine the type of system that will work best for your site.
This phase of the process might also include a comprehensive structural evaluation to assess the characteristics of the building or the surrounding site. In many of these cases, our highly trained and experienced engineers will also perform a feasibility study to ensure that your facility and the roof of your building is solar-ready.
With this information in hand, we can provide you with an effective solar development strategy designed to fit your needs. This includes helping you find the financing programs, loans, and tax incentives that will work best for your organization and budget. All this information can also be formatted into a custom cost-saving projection for your in-house accounting staff to analyze.
Financial Guidance And Assistance
One of the great things about solar power is its ability to recoup a fast return on investment. There are several financing options to consider.
Custom Design Services
At EZNERGY, we recognize that no two sites are the same. Our experienced designers and engineers have the training to create a custom system tailored to site-specific details.
We use state-of-the-art computer modeling technology, and the latest software to make the most out of the available roof space and structural requirements of the site. It also allows us to factor in things like historical weather data, tree growth, and potential shading problems.
Our meticulous design process also takes into account geo coordinates to maximize the site’s sun angle, as well as possible module locations, spacing, and the ideal tilt angle of the solar panels.
The design phase also includes other important factors such as:
A detailed analysis of the system layout
Cost savings benefits,
All applicable tax credits and rebates
A performance estimate
An energy offset projection
Equipment warranty information
An installation timeline estimate
