Dear Los Angeles Landlords and Building Managers,
Los Angeles is moving towards the implementation of a feed-in-tariff. What this does is stimulate a rooftop rental market as third party investor owned solar providers will be looking for commercial roof space (multifamily, office, warehouse, industrial and other larger buildings) to host their solar projects.
Compensation for the use of your building's roof space will be either a flat lease rate, a profit sharing arrangement, or a reduction in your current energy bill. You may also be offered a combination of these incentives.
A PPA structure (Power Purchase Agreement), is where the solar company will install solar panels that are owned by the solar company and sell you the energy produced at a reduced rate for a set amount of years, usually about 20 years. So when your neighbor's energy prices go up, yours do not.
Whether you get an offer to flat lease, or enter into a Power Purchase Agreement, or a profit sharing arrangement for the energy produced and sold to the utility company, the main point is that you are benefiting from your unused roof with any of these offers for your roof space. You can start the process of getting the best return from your building by listing your roof space as available to host a solar energy project today at http://www.seglet.com. It is free to list your building's roof space, and you may list it privately to keep your contact information hidden until you expressly release it to interested solar providers.
The most in demand building roof spaces are 10,000 sq. foot and up, although we have seen as little as 1,000 sq. feet demand requests from solar energy providers.
If you have any questions, I am happy to help answer them.
Best wishes that your roof space will be chosen as a host site for a solar project...
