There are numerous reasons to add solar to your energy portfolio. There are also many options when it comes to implementing solar generation. Should you lease or own your solar array? Should it be grid-connected or behind the meter? The answers to these questions depend on your goals, your budget, and your electric utility provider. The pictures below are of a 5-acre solar array that was installed on land owned by an existing client of Dovetail’s who was approached by a solar developer. Dovetail helped them to evaluate the original offer and brought competing offers to the table. In the end, the offer was structured entirely different than what was originally proposed, with a return on investment of under 5 years. Dovetail Energy Services is not a provider of Solar Generation, which allows us to remain objective in helping you decide if adding sustainable generation is right for you.
