Solar Energy Capabilities

The Benefits of Commercial Solar

As premiere solar installers in Colorado and the Rocky Mountain region, Douglass Colony knows that fitting your commercial building with solar panels brings with it a range of benefits beyond simple renewability.

Low Risk & High ROI

Choosing solar is a low-risk way to raise ROI. By investing in commercial solar panels, your property immediately increases in value. Beyond the immediate gain, you will also see reduced operating expenses over time, counteracting the upfront installation cost.

Financial Perks

As experts in commercial solar depreciation (a part of the system’s cost can be deducted from taxable income), we’ll help you understand and maximize your solar tax credits and renewable energy credits. Thanks to utility incentives, solar panels can also generate revenue for your commercial building.

Distinction & Differentiation

Not only is installing solar panels good for your wallet, but it also sets your building apart. Investing in sustainability shows your commitment to maintaining and raising the quality of your building, which, in turn, also raises the quality of your surroundings, reflecting your dedication to the environment as well as your community.

Year-Round Value

The best part of installing commercial solar panels in Denver, Colorado or anywhere in the Rocky Mountain region is our unbeatable number of sunny days. Even in the winter, your solar panels will be working to bring in value for your building.

Our approach to every solar project begins with a solar audit through an on-site survey of the building and location or off site modeling. Our survey teams measure the patterns of sunlit and shaded areas and analyze the building’s current energy consumption. Next, we assess the best approach to integrating the solar energy system with the existing electrical infrastructure and estimate how much solar-generated electricity your building can generate.

With expert workmanship and unmatched dedication to quality, technology, and our customers, our solar energy division provides comprehensive support and service, including green roof building and waterproofing.

Whether you’re looking for solar solutions for new construction or existing properties, we make your solar project a success. In fact, we rise to the challenge and excel at jobs other companies won’t take on.
