It should also be contemplated as a stand-alone alternative to your current energy sources. The benefits of on-site solar PV include low maintenance and operation costs, a competitive essentially fixed rate cost for your electricity (in some instances up to 20 years with extended warranties on the inverters), an educational opportunity for your students, and a reduction in your carbon footprint.
