Nautilus Solar partners with municipalities, government agencies and other non-profit entities, such as schools and museums, to provide solar energy at a competitive cost. As such customers cannot take advantage of the tax benefits available to solar investments, a Power Purchase Agreement ("PPA") is the most cost-effective and efficient method for a tax-exempt entity to benefit from a solar power system.
- No cost to taxpayers. With a PPA from Nautilus Solar, there's no need for a public referendum to allocate spending on a solar system. Nautilus, backed by Starwood Energy, provides the capital for your system, and your municipality pays only for the clean solar energy produced. Taxpayers save money on electricity costs over the long term, while the community as a whole helps to protect the environment.
- We'll cut through the red tape for you. The Nautilus Solar team has over 30 years experience working in the power industry, often working with government agencies to execute large scale production facilities. We understand the workings of government at every level, and are familiar with the requirements of state permitting authorities and other agencies that will be involved in the process. The end result is that we make it easier for you and your town to get the project done, so you can start benefiting from your solar installation.
- Setting a sustainable example for students. Renewable energy is the future of the United States, and young people today understand that – but they need practical models for how to make clean energy a part of their everyday lives. By bringing solar power to your school, you can become a role model for your students, showing them that solar energy works and they can be a part of it. You can inspire the next generation with your example, and in the process draw more of the best and brightest students and faculty to your school.
Teaching students about solar. At Nautilus Solar, we believe in the importance of educating the next generation about renewable energy. With solar installations at schools, we make sure to include an educational component to the system, so students can not only see the solar system, but understand how it works, and how much of an impact it is having on the school's energy use and carbon footprint. This educational component might range from placing monitoring kiosks at strategic locations throughout the campus to a fully integrated curriculum about renewable energy, focusing around the solar installation as a learning tool.
