Still not convinced?
Let’s address a few of the most common misconceptions:

  • “Solar will be too expensive for my company.”

    A solar project does not need to be a big expense. In fact, when you choose a power purchase agreement or an operating lease, there won’t be any upfront costs. Solar projects also have very strong ROIs and great federal and state incentives and tax benefits. Not to mention, free electricity.

  • “Switching to solar seems complicated and time consuming.”

    With GEE, switching to solar energy is simple! We will handle your company’s installation from start to finish. Plus, most projects only take between 3 to 6 months.

  • “I don’t think my company’s roof will qualify for a solar installation.”

    Our solar experts can determine if your property qualifies before scheduling an onsite appointment. As long as you own a roof that is at least 120,000 square feet in size and has 15 years of life left, you’ll be set. Solar panels can also be installed on the ground or in parking lots.
