Leo Sunergy Services
The American energy landscape is changing and you are fortunate enough to live in this transitional time. You will see more and more roofs with PV panels as an increasing number of homeowners convert to solar energy. Whether you want to reduce our dependence on foreign oil, make a statement about your green philosophy or even if you just want to live off-grid, Leo Sunergy makes it easy for you to make the switch. Our world class customer service provides you one point of contact and turnkey services from designing and financing to installing, monitoring and maintaining a solar PV system for your home. One phone call is all it takes. Leo Sunergy makes it EASY.
You may already know that many states, counties, cities and utilities have set up programs to encourage people to switch to solar power. These are in addition to the 30% income tax credit available from the federal government. Leo Sunergy will work through the myriad government policies and regulations to identify and help to file for all the benefits that your particular system qualifies for. All combined, you may be able to offset more than 50% of the cost of your system! Leo Sunergy makes it AFFORDABLE.
Be green to make green. This is the best time to switch to solar energy because consumers are becoming increasingly eco-conscious and willing to invest in eco-friendly products and services. You can jump in the game by calling Leo Sunergy and letting our knowledgeable and experienced team design, install, monitor and maintain a PV system for your business.
Research shows that midsized businesses with electricity requirements between 150kW and 2,000kW stand to gain the most from conversion to solar power. The government offers the highest rebates and credits for this size of commercial solar power systems. We at Leo Sunergy offer a full range of alternative energy options to business owners, with our offerings focused on photovoltaic systems and concentrated solar power systems. However, we also provide solutions based on wind power and biofuels if requested.
Our team's extensive experience in multi-million dollar commercial project management puts Leo Sunergy in a different league - most of our competitors' main experience is limited to residential and small scale projects. Keep in mind that converting a mid-sized facility to solar is not the same as putting a 5kW system on the roof of a house. All solar companies are not created equally - choose carefully!
If you do nothing else, please explore the rebates, credits and subsidies available to your business for alternative energy installations. Your business can save money while doing its part to reduce this country's reliance on nonrenewable fuel sources.
