With constant volatility in the energy markets, many people and businesses have turned to installing solar panels on their homes and business properties in order to produce electricity that is clean and free. It should be noted that over the past two years there have been significant improvements in the quality of solar panel efficiency. As such, the return on investment for companies and individuals that play solar panels on their properties is significant. It should also be noted that there are a number of both federal and state programs that provide significant tax credits to people that shift their energy consumption to solar panel usage. This trend is expected in to continue in perpetuity given, again, the continued volatility in the energy markets and the demand among consumers for clean we produce electricity. One of the primary benefits to having solar panels installed is that excess energy can be sold into the electrical grid at a profit. This makes the installation of photovoltaic cells very popular among both homeowners as well as business owners.
Banks and lenders look to place money with solar panel installation businesses given the fact that they are a tangible asset that can’t currently increase the value of homes and commercial properties. Many companies are able to recoup their investment within the first year. If an entrepreneur is looking to raise capital for their solar panel installation business than it is imperative that a business plan is developed. This business plan should include a profit and loss statement, cash flow analysis, balance sheet, breakeven analysis, and business ratios page. Typically, a financial model should cover a three-year timeframe. One of the focuses within the business plan should be on the large tangible inventory base that will be acquired with the funds sought. It should be noted that most solar panel installation businesses usually require about $100,000 to $300,000 of startup capital. Primarily, these funds are used for truck acquisitions, photovoltaic cell acquisitions, and working capital. The gross margins generated by a solar panel installation business are considered moderate. The revenue consists of both labor costs relating to the installation of the panels as well as the actual sale of the panels themselves.
Given the ongoing demand for solar panels, a number of competitors have entered this market. Competition is faced by both other solar panel installation businesses as well as electricians that are able to render the services to customers. As such, it is very important that a marketing plan is developed to work in conjunction with the business plan. One of the ways that solar panel installation companies market their services to the general public is through a massive online campaign. This includes not only a proprietary website but also a presence on popular social media pages as well including FaceBook, Twitter, Google, and Instagram. As many people now find local service providers online, it is imperative that the solar panel installation business maintain a profile that showcases not only the costs but also a portfolio of previous work completed. Many of these websites also contain a blog which provide substantial information regarding the energy markets, the benefits of solar energy, and the underlying costs that are normally associated with installing panels in a home or on a commercial property. Beyond
Beyond the marketing plan and business plan, a solar panel installation business SWOT analysis should also be completed. As it relates to the strengths of these companies, they are generally able to produce moderate gross margin revenue was on a highly predictable basis. For weaknesses, these companies often have very high operating expenses given that highly specialized professionals need to be hired as it relates to the installation of photovoltaic cells. For opportunities, many of these companies look to develop satellite locations in other markets. Given the strong demand for photovoltaic cells, it is very easy for these companies to expand once they have established a strong brand name. For threats, one of the ongoing issues that is faced by the solar panel installation industry is that there are continually changing regulations as well as legislation pertaining to the tax credits that people and companies receive for installing panels on their properties. As such, it is important that an entrepreneur closely monitor this industry so that these panels can be installed for customers while maintaining economic viability of the business.
