Our Knowledge is POWER

ACDC Solar, LLC provides your business with the opportunity to be energy independent by using the latest Solar PV technology, incentives and financing.

ACDC Solar shows your business a smarter way to purchase electricity.

Did you know?

With ACDC Solar your business can get more than 50% of its investment in solar back within the first 12-months. AND, the remaining balance after year 1 is typically 1/5 of what you are already planning on spending on electricity. Put another way, after receiving 50% of your investment back, if you transfer the remaining balance to a loan, then your now-steady electricity payments will be less than 40% of what you were spending on electricity the previous year. And, you will own your electricity generating system. Solar is a no-brainer.

Investment Tax Credit

The Federal Government provides a 30% Investment Tax Credit (ITC) for solar generating systems. This means that instead of paying your taxes and getting nothing in return, you can use money earmarked for Uncle Sam to buy solar and become energy independent. You own your building, but you rent your electricity… that doesn’t make cents!

MACRS Depreciation

In addition to the ITC, the IRS allows system owners to depreciate 85% of system installation price using Modified Accelerated Cost Recovery System (MACRS); plus, systems in service before January 1, 2018 qualify for 50% bonus accelerated depreciation, meaning 42.5% of a system’s price can be depreciated in year one. In addition, the remaining 42.5% can be depreciated using the regular MACRS schedule. Systems in service before January 1, 2018 can depreciate an impressive 51% of the system installation price year one!

You Have to Buy Electricity. Our Way is Smarter.

There is no such thing as a free lunch and solar is not free. HOWEVER, the money that you will spend on solar is already in your annual budget! Going solar with ACDC Solar will cost you less than what you are planning on spending on electricity.  You have to pay taxes and you have to buy electricity, this happens every year… Instead of giving away your hard earn revenue to the government and utility company with no end in sight: STOP RENTING YOUR ELECTRICITY. TAKE ADVANTAGE OF INCENTIVES AVAILABLE TO YOUR BUSINESS AND OWN YOUR ELECTRICITY.
