Solar energy helps businesses reduce electricity costs and meet sustainability goals. Commercial solar can be installed on company-owned rooftops, ground-mounted on your land, or erected as canopies over property or parking lots.
Usource is part of the NextEra Energy family of companies, the world’s largest producer of wind and solar energy. As part of NextEra Energy, Usource is uniquely positioned to analyze, facilitate and execute on innovative renewable energy projects to ensure that each client’s energy strategy meets their unique business goals and sustainability objectives.

We conduct an energy strategy consultation with you to understand your goals and objectives and help determine the ideal renewable energy solution for your organization.
We assess the feasibility of each renewable energy option (both onsite and offsite) and provide recommendations on which would best achieve your desired results.
As an independent consultant, we will develop a Request for Proposal (RFP) on your behalf, then review offers gathered from numerous renewable energy service providers.
We provide a renewable energy impact analysis to compare past energy usage to future state–once you are leveraging renewable energy.
We will provide a cash flow analysis report showing the impact of renewable energy on your organization’s bottom line.
PPAs provide electricity at a lower cost than current electricity rates, as well as future price certainty for up to 20 years. The PPA allows the solar equipment to be installed at no cost to you, and you are not responsible for installation and maintenance. There are many ways to structure solar PPAs and much care should be taken to ensure all risks and benefits have been weighed.
Because of the complexity and financial impacts of these agreements, we highly recommend having a professional energy consultant work with you to maximize savings and mitigate risk.
