Solar Power

Hedge against rising and volatile electricity prices, and provide a strong return both environmentally and financially.

Solar Benefits

What is Solar?

Photovoltaic (PV) solar systems convert sunlight into electrical power that can be connected to a building's standard electrical infrastructure and the utility grid.

Solar panels convert light into direct current (DC) electricity. The solar panels are connected into an inverter that converts that "DC" power into alternating current or "AC" power. Power produced by the PV system not used by the facility flows back into the utility grid through "net metering" and the utility will credit a customer's account for the excess electricity produced.


Why Solar?

  • Aggressive federal & state incentives
  • Provides a strong return both environmentally and financially
  • Hedge against rising and volatile electricity prices
  • Combined energy, economic, and environmental benefits
  • Reduced carbon footprint and zero emissions
  • Green marketing of environmental sustainability!

Main Components of a solar project:

  • Solar Panels
    – Used to generate direct current (DC) electricity from sunlight.
  • Inverter
    – Transforms direct current (DC) electricity produced by solar panels into alternating current (AC) electricity that be used by the facility hosting the solar system.
  • Racking
    – Used to mount and secure the solar panels in alignment on a roof, ground area or parking canopy.
  • Data Acquisition System (DAS)
    – Records, monitors and displays the PV system's performance and electricity generation. This information is available to the system owner via the internet in most cases.

Solar Financing

There are many reasons why now is a great time for solar. Dynamic can provide multiple financing options including:

Direct Purchase

Purchasing a solar system provides many benefits including:

  • Traditional bank financing
  • Federal 30% Investment Tax Credit
  • Accelerated depreciation (MACRS)
  • Energy savings
  • Aggressive state level incentives
  • Replace a variable cost with an income generating asset

Power Purchase Agreement

A Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) provides the host customer power at a discounted rate, with no capital requirement. A third party investor owns the PV system and takes all of the incentives associated with the project. PPAs provide the following benefits to customers:

  • No upfront cost or capital required
  • Projects are cash flow positive from day one
  • Predictable energy pricing - hedge against rising and volatile electricity prices
  • No system performance or operating risk and no maintenance
  • Reduce fossil fuel dependence
  • Align with organizational sustainability goals
  • Press and media outreach

Operating Lease

An operating lease provides the host of the system with monthly lease payments as well as ownership of the project's state incentives and generated electricity. A third party investor owns the PV system and receives all of the tax incentives from the project. An operating lease provides the following benefits to customers:

  • Preserve bank lines and working capital for core business operations
  • Significant upside of current incentives and energy savings
  • Historic low lease rates with fixed monthly payments
  • Expense deduction consideration on full lease payments
  • Up to 100% total project cost financing
  • Own all electricity produced by the system
