Commercial & industrial Solar Energy
Helping Businesses Go Green Throughout the State of Georgia
Whether you are a commercial property manager, a developer planning a new project, or a building manager for an industrial facility, we can discuss how you can reduce your operating costs or make your properties more attractive to potential tenants by offering them lower utility bills than your competition.
Alternative Energy Southeast, Inc. is a team of well-trained, highly skilled and certified electricians and energy experts. We are also passionate about helping businesses move toward a more cost-effective and environmentally-friendly source of electricity to help you maximize your profits and improve your brand image.
As part of our commitment to our customers, AES will assist you in taking advantage of every local, state and federal rebate or tax credit available to reduce the cost of incorporating solar into your new project or renovation. For instance, solar systems under the Modified Accelerated Cost- Recovery System (MACRS) can qualify for special Federal tax depreciation rules, including a 50% first-year bonus depreciation (reduces to 40% in 2018, 30% in 2019).

Benefits of solar energy for your business can include:
- Reduced operating costs – The easiest way for any business to improve their PL statement is controlling costs. The energy needs of a modern business can be a significant portion of your day-to- day expenses. Solar energy is a less expensive alternative than traditional monthly utility bills.
- Return on investment – For a one-time cost (no up-front cost if financed) you can have many years of free energy from the sun. A large rooftop array, like that on commercial buildings, can pay for themselves very quickly and will last for many decades with a solar panel warranty of 25 years.
- Decrease your business’ carbon footprint – when your business makes the switch to solar energy, your business is contributing to a better environment. There's a new generation of customers coming who appreciate companies that make an effort to “go green”. Together, we can reduce harmful emissions (like sulfur dioxide), reduce poisonous waste products (like arsenic and mercury) and keep more clean water for drinking than we can by getting energy from non-renewable sources. And you can attract a growing pool of customers who reward environmentally- aware businesses with their dollars.
