Our portfolio of commercial clients includes over 400 solar-energy projects and 80+ battery storage plants, including office buildings, heavy manufacturing, universities, retail stores, and performance venues. Our resume includes over 70 projects for schools alone! Some of our C-I-E clients have engaged us to build multiple projects over time -relying on our professional and consistent delivery to expand their energy successes.
As with our resort and private island clients, we typically address both renewable energy generation and energy efficiency in the commercial-industrial-educational sector. Both of these areas of emphasis will reduce energy expense, deduce demand charges, and earn your business a reputation as a steward of the environment. Many businesses rely on “greenwashing” to convince their customers that they care about the environment – solar energy proves it in a way that also directly boosts your profitability.
One of the main differences between commercial buildings and resorts, for instance, is the occupancy. A commercial building usually will benefit from having the same occupants and occupancy schedule every day of the year (except the business customers change from day to day). We will listen to understand your occupancy patterns and craft innovative solutions that work within the constraints of your business.
We help Caribbean businesses and building owners reduce the operating expenses of their businesses and buildings. This increases the net operating income and consequently the value of the building. A solar-energy project will deliver an Internal Rate of Return (IRR) that can match or even exceed the financial performance from the underlying business conducted in the building!
Commercial buildings also have a variety of leasing arrangements that can affect the installation or operation of an onsite solar energy system. We are expert in helping you navigate these lease constraints to develop a system that works for both the landlord and the tenant.
Renewable energy systems will help the C-I-E building owner or operator:
- Cut costs and improve the profitability, increasing the value of the building (increasing the cap rate and cash-on-cash return)
- Demonstrate your company’s commitment to preserving the environment
- Create goodwill for your company in the community
- Satisfy supply-chain requirements for sustainability
- Make your company less reliant on the energy grid
- Help you attract and retain the brightest and best employees
- Promote your company as forward-thinking and technologically advanced
For these reasons and more, solar PVs offer any Caribbean company an incredible opportunity for growth.
SolarIsland has the experience and professionalism to work with the top companies in the Caribbean and around the world. Our portfolio of completed projects and thrilled clients speaks for itself.
