Full Array of Financing Options

Four Choices Fit Most Needs

Buying without a loan or lease gives the owner the fastest return on investment. Those who chose this option commonly take advantage of all tax incentives and depreciation offered.

With a loan you also get full ownership and incentive benefits. It adds the ability to spread ownership payments out over time and work with your preferred lender for lowest rates.

Leasing provides 100% financing and gives the ownership responsibilities to a third party. There are no upfront costs, and lease terms offer predictable, fixed monthly payments.

The Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) essentially sets up a buyer/utility relationship. You purchase the power produced at a fixed and reduced rate for the life of the agreement. 

At BlueSel Commercial Solar we are convinced that going solar makes sound business sense for a growing number of companies and organizations. The financing decision is key to optimizing your ROI, meeting your goals and staying within your budget. Different types of projects require different types of financing, so BlueSel reviews each business uniquely to select the best financing to meet our client’s needs.

BlueSel Commercial Solar is continuously evaluating the industry’s financing options. For each of the different methods of solar system purchase or lease, we have partnered with the most reputable names in the industry. Customers need to make informed financing decisions that make the most sense for them. We are prepared to help you, and your tax consultant or accountant, examine and understand our financing solutions so you can make the best choice for your situation.

Own Your Solar Energy System with a Cash Purchase

Ownership reduces utility payments and gives the owner full access to federal tax incentives and state renewable energy incentives. Thanks to predictable costs, a solar energy system investment locks-in your return rate with fewer risks compared to other investment options.

  • Maximize Use of All Purchase Incentives and Continuing Credits (SREC)
  • Best and Immediate Energy Cost Reduction
  • Best Financial Return and Use of Your Money (no matter how you calculate it)
  • Dependable Income for 25+ Years

Fastest Investment Recovery

Commercial operations that buy their solar systems outright typically achieve the highest Return on Investment over the life of the system. They also usually achieve the quickest payback for the system investment since they are able to take advantage of all the electrical cost savings, as well as take full financial advantage of federal, state and local tax and depreciation incentives.

Quickly Cashflow Positive

Cashflow Payback periods are faster – frequently less than 5 years. And it is common for ownership via purchase to produce Cumulative Positive Cash Flow of amounts of 3 -5 times the total net purchase cost of the system over the system lifetime.

Direct Ownership Through Loans

Direct ownership via a bank loan is a close alternative to a cash purchase. You can avoid tying up your cash while still owning your investment and receive every available cost reduction, tax deduction, and ownership right.

  • Maximize Use of All Purchase Incentives and Continuing Credits (SREC)
  • Early Energy Cost Reduction
  • Good Financial Return and Use of Your Money (no matter how you calculate it)
  • Added Interest is Fully Tax Deductable
  • Beyond Loan Terms, Dependable Income for Years
  • Ability to Work With Your Preferred Lender or Institution

No Upfront Cost

Purchasing a solar system outright with a loan acquired with your own commercial credit provides all of the same direct benefits of a cash purchase and allows the investment payment period to be spread out at what may be a relatively low additional cost. In some cases there are additional incentives and deductions available to businesses for such investments.

Ownership without Liens

Lending institutions have also realized that solar and battery storage systems are a viable investment for their portfolios. The advantage to you is that there are no liens on your property, as the systems are the collateral. And the lenders realize these systems are not just capital equipment, but produce predictable revenue over a long period of time – unlike some other production products and equipment that devalue rapidly and don’t produce guaranteed income.

  • Customer company keeps — all energy savings — all state renewable energy incentives
  • Customer company selects all equipment
  • Monetized Value of equipment tax benefits reduce customer payments
  • Seven years of 100% tax-deductible, fixed payments with no escalation
  • Ownership at a discounted price after years 6 or 7
  • Ownership purchase may be financed

Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) Option

A Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) allows commercial energy consumers to avoid the expensive capital costs of system design, engineering, solar panels, inverters, permits and construction. With a PPA, an energy consumer pays for the electricity generated by the solar array, through a service agreement, for a fixed period of time at a rate less than what the utility charges. PPA’s are not a financing mechanism, like traditional loans or leases from lenders. Typically, during or after a 20 or 25 year initial term has expired, the energy consumer can purchase the system for Fair Market Value, or enter into a new PPA.
  • No upfront capital costs or financing is required for the installation and integration of the solar system or Solar and battery storage system.
  • No maintenance costs over the life of the system.
    Since the system is NOT owned by the commercial customer, routine maintenance and monitoring are provided and repairs are made if needed.
  • Affordable energy.
    Utility rates continue to increase annually. Entering into a PPA will create cost savings over the expected life of the solar system and create a hedge against utility cost inflation.
  • A viable energy-cost saving option for customers like Non-Profit Organizations or other entities that cannot take advantage of the Federal and State Tax Incentives.

Our construction process begins with a pre-construction planning meeting led by our EPC project manager and involving your on-site project representative and any other subcontractors who will manage on-site work. This meeting educates everyone on the installation and the construction steps in the process. In our experience, this team is able to develop the best plan to efficiently receive and locate materials and work in the construction site with the lowest impact to your business operations. It also establishes the personal connections to quickly solve problems and make optimal decision during the construction process.

For all of our work, we provide a 5 year workmanship warranty and act as your one-stop contact for the equipment warranties for your installed system. Our construction phase completes with documentation and training on the operation of the system, the maintenance schedule, and contact information for issue resolution. We also offer monitoring services that can identify system performance issues and keep your system running at optimal productive capacity.

Our project manager can acquire all the equipment and materials to implement the design and would work with you to fully manage the logistics of delivering and storing them onsite to minimize any disruption to your normal business operations.

Another important aspect of procurement is our proven ability to manage all the required permits for construction as well as all the required paperwork and interactions with the local utility for grid-connection authorization and PTO (permission to operate). We can also manage the application forms and processes for any incentive programs and credits the system is eligible for. Simply put – our system design includes everything needed to build your system, meet all requirements AND take advantage of all the incentives and credits you are due.

Our engineering begins with the first conversation to understand your electricity requirements, history and project goals. We survey the site and evaluate the total solar power potential and work with you to review the options for all potential solar installations – including the roofs of existing buildings as well as the possible options for Solar Systems over parking areas and unshaded land that might be used for ground-mount systems.

The cost, financing, payback period, and system lifetime ROI are reviewed for each option and the quality equipment included in our designs is always selected meet your budget and optimize the return on your financial investment.

Our engineering plans are fully certified by our engineering partner company – ARC DESIGN – to meet all structural and electrical requirements and qualify fully for current federal and state incentive programs.
