Go Solar with Certainty

Going Solar in Washington D.C.

With the rise of solar energy, D.C. property owners now have multiple ways to bring in extra cash flow by leasing out their property for solar. Through a lease agreement offered by Sol Systems, property owners in the District with enough space on their roof, in their yard, or in their parking lot can bring in additional revenue to their business. D.C customers also have the option of going solar through a Power Purchase Agreement and realize significant savings on their energy bills. Sol Systems can work with you to evaluate your options.

Our Work in the District

Sol Systems’ DC-headquartered company has extensive experience working in the District’s solar market. As the preeminent solar firm in D.C., Sol Systems has financed and developed over 12 MW of solar in D.C. and currently trades the Solar Renewable Energy Credits (SRECs) of over 2,000 customers. Our work in D.C. includes a 35-project portfolio with the D.C. Department of General Services (DGS) that provides over 10MW to schools, hospitals and other public buildings in the city. Check out our resources section at the bottom of the page for a deeper look at our work.

If this all sounds easy, it’s because Washington D.C. is our HQ backyard, so we’re especially knowledgeable. As your neighbor, we are especially interested to help answer any questions and would value the opportunity to lease your underutilized space. Please email us at energy@solsystems.com.
