Commercial Solar

SolTerra provides a turn key process to commercial solar, making the decision an easy one. We handle everything from initial design and consultation to final inspections and system commissioning. 


Adding solar to your business is a great way to add value, protect against rising utility rates, take advantage of lucrative incentives, and make a statement of sustainability to your employees and customers.

WA state recently passed new solar incentives that make commercial solar a viable investment for local businesses! There are several federal tax incentives to take advantage of and WA state will write you a check once a year for all energy produced in the amount of up to $25,000 per year.

Commercial Incentives:

30% Federal Income Tax Credit

The federal government offers a tax credit (not a deduction) for 30% of the total installation cost. If you do not have the tax liability in one year to take advantage of this credit, you can roll it over for multiple years to take full advantage of the credit.


WA State production incentive

WA state will pay you for every kWh produced, even if you use the energy on site. The rate depends on which fiscal year the system is placed into service and that set rate will be paid for 8 years. Customers will receive a bonus amount per kWh if they elect to install panels that are manufactured in Washington. Commercial systems can receive up to $25,000 per year.

Solar Works in Washington

The pacific NW is a great climate for solar: we receive 20% more sunlight per year than Germany, the world’s leader in solar energy production.

Long summer days

Solar panels produce electricity based on how many hours they spend in the sun, so our summers are great for solar energy!


Milder Climate

Solar panels operate most efficiently just below 80 degrees. A mild summer day in the PNW will produce more power than a hot summer day in Los Angeles because panels operate more efficiently under cooler conditions.


The Rain

Clean solar panels produce more effectively and the rain helps keep the panels free of dust and dirt. A dirty panel can lower production by as much as 10%
