How Solar Can Work for Your City

Solar energy benefits us all. For businesses, all organization and individuals going solar will create tremendous opportunities for cost savings and community development. This fact is especially true for municipal governments. Given your high electricity costs and access to many building rooftops, municipalities are uniquely positioned to take advantage of the benefits of solar energy.

Why solar energy?

Municipalities can reduce their monthly electric bills by utilizing solar energy. This creates significant cost savings by powering libraries, municipal office buildings, parks and maintenance facilities at lower electric rates. One of the top two or three budget items for local government is the cost of energy and maintenance.  Solar electricity can cut these operating expenses significantly.

With the advent of net meeting solar owners, including municipalities, are now afforded the luxury to receive credit for solar energy not used.  This energy credit may be used on days that require more energy than a system may provide in that day, for example, a rainy day.  This process works all year round.  In extra sunny months when solar electricity production outpaces total electricity consumption, solar owners will earn credits they can apply to future monthly electric bills. Whether a municipality installs solar on a single building or an entire fleet of buildings, the reductions in their monthly electric bills will translate into savings that may otherwise be applied somewhere else within the city budget.

Getting started

Open spaces can make good land for ground mount solar.

Municipalities can go solar by installing photovoltaic (PV) panels on a single site or a fleet of buildings. For either option, you will need to understand solar technology, installation procedures, costs, and incentives. iSolar can help you get started!

When looking to go solar, municipalities should consider the following:

Tax-exempt status: Municipalities are not eligible to apply the 30% federal tax credit to their solar installations because they do not pay taxes. That said, municipalities can install their systems through solar financiers or third parties who will monetize the tax credit on their behalf.  Those third-party investors will incorporate their tax credit savings into the cost they charge the municipality.

Solar can work in a variety of settings

Long-term project timeframes: With numerous departments, stakeholders, and staff teams involved in a municipality’s solar installation process, the installation timeframe will be longer than for an individual home. It is important for the municipal project lead to communicate with fellow municipal offices and staff about the installation in its early phases, to avoid hold-ups down the line. Bringing together environmental, facilities, permitting, communications, and education departments at the outset of the solar planning process will help streamline the work process and maximize engagement across all municipal offices.

Opportunity for constituent participation: Municipal governments are uniquely situated to leverage their PV installation(s) to their constituents’ interest in going solar. Through their listservs, email blasts, and community programming, municipalities can help their residents see solar in action and learn how it can benefit their businesses and households.
