What We Do

Balance Solar partners with solar installers to finance solar projects. We are backed by a team of investors and individuals with extensive experience in the field. We provide financing options so our customers pay no capital upfront for the installation and save money on their electric bills.

Our unique model allows us to offer 7-15 year Power Purchase Agreements (PPA) and solar leases at low rates. At the end of the contract, ownership of the system transfers directly to our clients for no additional cost.

We work with residential, commercial, and municipal property owners. Balance Solar is an Approved Vendor under the Illinois Solar For All program, with goals to provide renewable energy to entire communities at less than 50% of what they are currently paying.

How You Benefit

  • You pay nothing for your solar panel system.
    You lock in a utility rate for the next 10-12 years, meaning no increase in your electricity bill.
    When the contract expires, the system reverts to you.

  • Solar energy offers commercial real estate property owners and managers a phenomenal opportunity to either lower operating expenses or increase rent (i.e. cash flow).

  • As Millennials have become a driving force in the marketplace, corporate social responsibility has become the expectation. Using solar panels for your energy will not only save you money, but will improve your reputation as well.

  • Solar panels allow your business to use less energy from the grid, meaning you’ll be less dependent upon external power lines and transmitters.

  • State and local governments are creating renewable energy plans for their communities. Chicago, for example, has pledged to be 100 percent reliant on renewable energy by 2040, which will require meaningful participation from local organizations.

  • By adding solar panels to your roof, you can actively reduce the amount of energy that’s produced from fossil fuels. That means less carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, and a slower degradation of the planet. Climate change is an economic issue, and by fighting it, you’ll save more in the long run.

Considerations

  • We work with residential, commercial, and municipal property owners. Ownership is preferrable, but not strictly necessary.

  • Minimum of 12 years is recommended, after which, ownership is transferred to the client.

  • We target clients with roof space in healthy condition. Newer roofs are preferred, with an estimated lifespan of at least 12 years remaining.

  • To determine how much you can save with a solar panel system, we need to know the price you pay for power, your average electricity consumption, and the estimated size of your roof.

Mission

Balance Solar’s purpose is threefold: to provide renewable energy affordably, to create business on the foundation of trust, and to benefit all parties involved - especially the Earth.

In the future, we hope to work with state and local governments to make a significant impact in the global transition to renewable energy.

We believe in the power of the Sun, and marvel at our ability to harness it. We live for growth and the creation of life. We fight to restore balance in the world, and create a sustainable future for generations to come.
