Commercial Solar PV in Connecticut

Power your building. Empower your business.


Commercial Incentives

ZREC, Zero-emission Renewable Energy Credits, can earn business owners income based on the production of their solar systems. These qualified credits are sold back to Eversource or United Illuminating under a 15 year contract.

To help recoup the cost of commercial solar, each business can depreciate the system over a 5 year period with the Modified Accelerated Cost Recovery System (MACRS). The depreciation schedule follows the 5 year property half year convention:

1 20%
2 32%
3 19.20%
4 11.52%
5 11.52%
6 5.76%


Commercial Solar Financing

Connecticut offers C-PACE– the Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy allows building owners to finance qualifying energy efficiency and clean energy improvements through placing a voluntary assessment on their property tax bill.

For those who wish to lease a solar system for their commercial property, the CT Commercial Solar Lease Program allows qualifying applicants to either lease or sign a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) for 20 years. PPAs are for municipal / school district and not-for-profit (NFP) customers only. Contact us to learn other program requirements.


Sunlight Solar Energy CT has received its 2016 DAS Prequalification Certification.
