How COVID-19 Is Changing Views on Sustainable Energy

COVID-19 has devastated the lives of millions of Americans. With over 10 million confirmed cases and a climbing death count, businesses are still not back to normal in most states. Business owners have struggled for months now to maintain the health of their customers as a first priority without having to close their doors for good. Because of this, they are looking for new ways to cut costs and provide a unique, safe shopping experience. 

Because of the COVID-19 economic downturn, one would expect expensive renewable energy options to slow down dramatically in production and sales. However, the opposite trend is starting to show. Interest in solar energy for both residential and commercial buildings is actually increasing. Some industry experts cite the cost-savings benefits of solar, while others believe the cause is an increasing value of self-sufficiency. 

In Florida, where MaintenX is headquartered, there are many new incentive programs for residential and commercial facilities to install solar panels to rooftops. These rooftop solar installations are made to reduce environmental impacts, but the cost-savings available to facility owners are impressive. In a time of great uncertainty and financial stress, solar energy efficiency is becoming much more attractive to even the most frugal of commercial property owners. 

If you’re interested in solar energy for your commercial facility, there are a few things you should consider: 

  • While solar panels are a major upfront investment, there are plenty of incentives offered by both state and federal government to help you finance the upgrade.
  • Solar panels offer an impressive ROI, as they typically pay for themselves in cost savings in the first 10 years
  • Solar panels can be styled to look similar to traditional commercial roofing, adding aesthetic appeal to your facility
  • Solar panels will instantly increase property value if installed by a reputable contractor
