The federal Small Business Jobs Act included a provision that extended bonus depreciation, previously available under the Modified Accelerated Cost Recovery System (MACRS), to systems installed during CY2010.

Why are your clients going Solar? 


Companies today are facing new exciting challenges that are changing the way they do business. Companies like Wal-Mart and Proctor & Gamble have introduced sustainability clauses that will challenge their suppliers to think greener or lose sales. These corporate players will help shape the solar industry by increasing the amount of commercial solar installed across the U.S. Working with your clients that are suppliers of larger retail corporations can mean big work for you. If you have a client that qualifies let us help you make the first step with a Clean Power Plan from Clean Power Design!

  • levelize costs for energy
  • lower monthly costs for energy
  • own Renewable Energy Credits
