Roof Rental

What is solar

roof rental?

Roof rental is a basic way to make money out of your buildings rooftop through solar energy. Property owners lease their roof space to a developer who installs the solar energy system and shares the income and benefits with the owner. All initial and ongoing costs, maintenance and operation are owned by the developer for the term of the agreement. Tenants then purchase the electricity produced at their normal grid electricity rates. Many commercial, industrial and retail buildings can provide the real estate needed for these systems, and are subsequently viewed as potentially profitable candidates for roof rental.
