D-Sun covers all upfront project costs using a combination of debt and equity finance and expert knowledge of available incentive programs. Our partners benefit from a long-term energy rate schedule that is predictable and lower than prevailing retail utility rates, with savings beginning immediately upon system commissioning.
Adding solar power to a building creates new marketing opportunities and differentiates our partners from their competitors. Green-branded commercial space generally benefits from lower vacancy rates and higher rents when compared with similar, non-branded properties.
All businesses need energy, but the costs are driven by macro-scale forces beyond the control of owners, regulators, and utilities. Escalating global energy demand, geo-political risks associated with the production of fossil fuels, and the rising costs of distribution all contribute to energy market volatility. And, the need to mitigate climate change is likely to push long-term electricity rates still higher. Through the use of solar power, our project partners are able to insulate themselves from these trends and lock in predictable, lower electricity rates for the next 15-25 years.
