Green Power Systems has the expertise to you help you match a commercial solar power solution to with the best investment vehicle to meet your specific needs.

We will work with you to ensure your unique solar energy strategy delivers the greatest total savings on energy costs over the life of your system. The top three investment opportunities today are:
When feasible, purchasing a solar powered system outright can yield the highest return on investment. The simplest path to financing a commercial solar project is to purchase the system directly. You buy and operate the solar installation which allows you to directly benefit from any available federal, state and local solar incentives.
If you have available capital and tax appetite to monetize the available rebates, tax credits, and accelerated depreciation, you may find a cash purchases to be the best option.
GPS offers comprehensive solutions with one goal in mind: delivering the most solar energy possible. Our installations use some of the best products on the market so you realize the greatest total savings on energy costs. In other words, a straightforward cash purchase of a green power system typically offers the maximum return on a solar investment.
With fixed monthly payments customers’ know exactly how much to budget for the solar power system. At the end of the lease term (typically 8-10 years), the customer owns the solar facility. A solar lease allows businesses to generate solar electricity with little to no upfront capital investment. Like traditional equipment leases, solar leases provide use of the solar equipment itself in exchange for a monthly lease payment. You benefit from the clean solar electricity generated from the rented solar installation. We have financial institutions that offer tax leases and operating leases with no initial down payment.
The combination of known lease payments and lower utility bills typically leads to an immediate reduction in electricity costs and provides increased savings over time. At the end of the lease agreement (typically after 8 – 10 years), you have the option to purchase the system at a reduced cost, renew the lease, or have the system removed.
Whether you want to work with your preferred financial institution or you want to explore alternatives, GPS can help you negotiate the terms of a solar lease. With an expansive network of specialized solar leasing partners, GPS knows how to accurately forecast energy output, secure favorable lease terms, and streamline the negotiation process to help you minimize your financial commitment while maximizing the return on your solar investment.
A Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) is a financing arrangement that allows businesses or government agencies to purchase solar electricity with no upfront capital cost. To achieve this, a “host” organization provides unused rooftop, land, or parking lot space as the location for a solar installation. A third party PPA provider pays for the cost of the solar installation and assumes all responsibility for ownership, operation, and maintenance after the solar project is complete. As the host organization, you enter into an agreement to purchase the solar electricity produced by the system owned by the PPA provider at a predetermined rate per kilowatt-hour, the same unit of measurement on your standard utility bill.
A well-structured PPA allows you to reduce electricity costs immediately and realize increased savings over time as grid electricity prices rise. Once the PPA contract period expires (typically after 20 years), you can purchase the system at a reduced price, initiate another PPA, or have the solar installation removed.
As one of the pioneers of Power Purchase Agreement, our market-tested process is designed to be streamlined and easy to implement. GPS partners with top tier PPA financiers such as Wells Fargo, GE Energy and Morgan Stanley, and we will work with you to design the best solar PPA to meet your organization’s energy needs.
