Untitled design - 2023-08-01T160447.355

These days, New York business owners have some of the best opportunities for cleaner energy solutions. From rooftop solar potential to community solar projects, there’s never been a better time to adopt solar into your business model. Whether you are seeking environmental benefits, financial benefits, or both, Catalyst Power has a suite of innovative technologies that can get you the results you’re looking for.

Small Business, No Problem

Our free Community Solar subscription is a great option for small businesses. If you don’t own your building and your roof is too small to host your own array, consider subscribing your business to a local solar farm. Your small business can still reap the benefits of clean energy without excess equipment and maintenance. Did we mention it’s free?

A great example of our work in New York is our partnership with the Gates Historical Society to build a new 1.4MW community solar farm in Rochester.

“Catalyst Power is committed to helping New Yorkers access clean energy solutions that deliver savings, and New York’s community solar program provides one of the easiest ways for them to save money while supporting the local community,” said Gabe Phillips, Founder and CEO of Catalyst Power.

When you partner with us, you get to save money on your energy bill and still participate in solar production. We're committed to providing as much community solar as we can to local businesses to offer financial relief and encourage renewable development.

Energy Strategy for Mid-Sized Businesses

Mid-sized businesses have more wiggle room thanks to larger rooftop space or properties. There’s really no limit to what you can do with solar at this stage and we’ve listed a few options for your business that you can do today:

Rooftop Leasing – this is a great way to get a monthly payment (yes, we offer cash!) to allow Catalyst Power to lease your rooftop space to install solar panels. If you’re wondering about how much space you’ll need, we do offer a free solar analysis for your property, so don’t hesitate to consider this solution for your business. The energy will be sold elsewhere, but you’ll earn an extra revenue stream and create a positive environmental impact for your community.

Community Solar – We still offer community solar subscriptions for mid-sized business owners. We’ve created a quick guide on how to get started with community solar. There’s no cost to sign up and you can bundle this service with our other products! We're doing our part to help New York achieve its sustainability goals (like reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 80% by 2050) by building as many small community solar projects as possible, particularly on commercial rooftops.

Connected Microgrid – Catalyst Power installs custom-sized, non-penetrating solar panels, including optional battery storage, to give you a maximum return on your investment. Our Connected Microgrid is the all-you-need solution for your energy woes. Is your monthly energy bill too high? Connected Microgrid. Worried about potential power outages or brownouts affecting critical processes? Connected Microgrid. It’s a self-sustaining, reliable option and the best part is Catalyst Power will cover the costs. We own, operate, and maintain the Connected Microgrid for you!
