PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwire - January 24, 2011) - The Arizona Solar Power Society invites commercial building owners and Certified Public Accountants (CPAs) to attend a free one-hour "Solar Tax Planning Strategies for Building Owners" seminar on February 3, 2011 at 6:30 pm at the Wyndham Hotel located at 50 East Adams Street, Phoenix, Arizona 85004. RSVPs are required and can be made by calling 602-326-0940.

The "Solar Tax Strategies for Building Owners" seminar will be presented by Smart Solar Solutions ( and will explain how building owners can utilize solar rebates from utility companies; a 30% federal grant, a 10% Arizona state tax credit; and depreciation to write off 100% of the solar system's expense in the first year of operation. 

Accountants and CPAs will be amazed at how combining these programs will allow a commercial solar installation to pay for itself in most cases within 4-6 years.

Building owners who bring their building's last 12 electric bills to the seminar will receive a free financial report that details how to structure these deals and how much money can be saved.

No time to attend a meeting, but still have an interest seeing how much your business can save by installing a solar power system? No problem. Have your accountant fax copies of your last 12 electricity bills to "Attn: Arizona Solar Power Society" at (602) 404-3417.

Solar experts will send you a free financial analysis that details how much your business will be able to save on taxes and how much free electricity your roof top can produce.

Solar power panels are guaranteed to produce free electricity for 25-years. Imagine how much your monthly cash flow would increase if your business did not have to pay its electricity bill each month.

A building with a monthly electricity bill of $4,000 in 2011 will probably increase to $8,000 per month by 2025. This means that a business that ignores solar in 2011 will be spending $96,000 more than a business that installs solar this year.

The choice is simple. Either pay your hard-earned dollars to the federal government or let us show you the most cost-effective way to install solar and write it off on your tax return.
