How Solar Electric Systems can benefit you.

The cost of a solar electric system can vary significantly depending on the amount of power required. Industrial facilities will require systems of a different scale than a small retail business. A small office may only require a $20,000 system, while an industrial facility may require a $500,000 plus system.

A solar power system on your building is a long term, low risk, and high return approach to investing your money. Solar offers an initial annual return on investment of 5-11%. This is very competitive with other higher risk investments such as stocks and bonds. As utility rates increase the annual return increases.

Solar power can reduce or eliminate your electric bill. In addition, any excess solar power can be fed into the utility grid resulting in a credit with the utility company. Some businesses may be able to take advantage of time-of-use metering. This will allow you to feed power into the grid during peak times (when power is most expensive), and draw power from the grid during off peak times (when power is cheaper).

A significant portion of the cost is paid for through government incentives.

Benefits of working with Rager

Rager Energy provides a free site evaluation and will guide you through the process of how solar and/or other clean energy solutions can save you money. We are able to provide design and related evaluation services for any commercial or industrial size operation.

We will show you how the solar process can progress from feasibility assessment to final design to system commissioning. During this process we can advise you about the many structural, electrical and mechanical designs in the market as well as the financing options being offered by major financial institutions that are supporting green projects.


a. $1/watt up to 50,000 watts

b. SREC's valued in range of $575-$700 per SREC (example: a 50kW solar electric system will generate approximately 56 - SREC's per year for estimated earnings of $35,000 per year!)

c. 30% Federal cash grant b. MACRS -5 year acclerated depreciation On average, commercial solar electric systems in NJ will generate an 18-30 month cash flow break even.

Are you looking to:

1) Lower or eliminate your electric bill
2) Benefit from rebates (depending on size of system)
3) Receive a 30% Federal Investment Tax Credit or Grant
4) Profit from the SREC program
5) Protect against rising electric costs in the future
6) Reduce your carbon footprint.
In addition, some businesses capitalize on lowering their taxable income from the solar expenditure and can take the 5 year accelerated depreciation. Note- if you want to advertise that you are green powered, you cannot sell SRECs


Through the integration of RAGER Energy's solar model, your already self-sufficient farming business can decrease its reliance on the utility grid. In the midst of climbing water and utility charges, our financial model can alleviate the shock to your operation by considerably reducing the cost of one of your major expenses- electricity.

Such pressures as global competition and the growing purchasing power of large processors are forcing farms toward a heightened consciousness for cost-savings and efficiencies. Our in-depth understanding of irrigation and other farm requirements has enabled us to standardize much of the solar process for growers. This translates into greater cost-savings through a bankable solar PV program that can help growers become more independent from rising utility power costs.

The State and Federal governments have created enormous incentives for businesses to go green with solar power. RAGER Energy will work with you in order to take advantage of this opportunity to go solar.

These solar savings could provide growers with the means to plan and pursue expansion projects to gain greater competitive scale in the global food economy.

Utility costs have been rising and will continue to increase. Prices for electricity have increased 63% in the past year (PG&E).

Benefits of an IMW Solar System

  • 1MW solar system absorbs 35,000 tons of Carbon dioxide over it's 30-year lifespan
  • 1MW of solar energy is equivalent to removing 6,400 cars from the road
  • 1MW of solar power is comparable to approximately 897,000 new trees planted or saved because it takes that many trees to absorb that much (35,000 tons) CO2 produced by fossil fuels.
