PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwire - Apr 18, 2011) - Solar Topps LLC (www.solartopps.com), a leading residential and commercial solar design and integration company based in Tempe, Ariz., announced that the Company is now marketing its new $0 money down commercial solar lease program to 30 cities and towns throughout Arizona. The commercial solar lease program is a perfect fit for a wide variety of small businesses that are looking for ways to save money on their electric bills. The commercial solar lease program is targeting a wide variety of vertical business segments such as airports, auto repair shops, banks, car dealerships, car washes, churches, convenience stores, customs brokers, dairies, dentists, doctor offices, design centers, farms, feed stores, franchises, freight forwarding, grocery stores, health spas, hospitals, hotels, manufacturing plants, model homes, ranches, retail outlets, real estate offices, warehouses, strip center shopping malls and large parking lot owners that need solar power arrays and shaded solar parking covers.

Any small business that has 2,500 sq. ft. or more of clear roof surface and that pays $500 or more a month on electricity is the perfect candidate for a zero-cost solar power system that will reduce or eliminate their electric bill.

The Arizona Zero-Money-Down Commercial Lease allows any small business to install a 30-kilowatt (or larger) solar power array worth $127,500 with absolutely no out-of-pocket costs. The system is guaranteed to produce approximately $6,000 per year of free clean solar electricity for a minimum lease term of 20 years. Each month the customer saves $500 by producing their own solar electricity. A $300 lease payment covers the cost of the system; leaving $200 per month of extra cash flow for the customer.

Solar panels also help buildings save money by making the building envelope more energy efficient due to the shade that the solar panels produce. This provides 6% to 8% of additional savings by reducing electricity consumption. The commercial solar lease also provides a guaranteed 50% rate reduction on future electric prices, which means that if rates go up 10%, Solar Topps will provide a 5% rate reduction.

If your company would like to install an Arizona Zero-Money-Down solar power system that is guaranteed to knock $2,400 or more off your electric bill every year for the next 20 years, please contact Virgil Heusinkveld at (480) 940-1201 ext. 105 to setup a free site analysis and quote.

"For APS, TEP and SRP customers that want to save money, Solar Topps' commercial solar lease agreements are the most affordable solar finance option in Arizona," said Neal Uppal, Solar Topp's President. "At first our solar lease agreement is hard to believe because of the price, but once we provide the technical specifications of the products used and the customer's CPA has had a chance to conduct a thorough financial analysis, our solar proposal success rate is around ninety percent because we make it a very easy for customers to say 'yes' to 'go solar.' We simply offer our customers a deal that the competition cannot beat. A great deal that shrinks their carbon footprint, reduces their electricity bill by hundreds of dollars each month and costs them nothing to install is hard to refuse."

"Our satisfied customers and city code inspectors love our solar power installations because we use only the highest quality, best-of-breed solar components from SunWize Technologies including Sharp, Sanyo, and Trina solar photovoltaic (PV) panels that have a zero loss PTC rating (PV USA Test Conditions) and Power-One Aurora dual-channel maximum power point tracking (MPPT) photovoltaic inverters, which deliver the highest efficiency power rating possible and allow us to offer the most precise solar power production guarantees in the solar industry," Uppal added. "Unlike many of our competitor's customers that may lose 3-5% of their power production because they use -3/+3% rated solar modules, most of our solar power arrays actually deliver more solar power than promised in the solar engineering design."

Zero Power Loss Sharp, Sanyo, and Trina Solar Panels
Solar Topps works with SunWize Technologies to carry Sharp, Sanyo and Trina solar panels that have a zero power loss PTC rating. Solar Topps only uses solar panels that are -0/+3 or higher, which means they will produce their exact energy rating or up to 3% more solar power than expected with no minus rated power. The solar power production is precise and guaranteed. Many solar installation companies use solar panels that have a variance of -3/+3 meaning the name plate rating could fall short of expectations by 3% and mismatches are possible.

Power-One Aurora 96.8% Efficient Dual-Channel MPPT Power Inverters
Solar Topps works with SunWise Technologies to carry Power-One Aurora solar power inverters that have the highest efficiency rating of 96.8%. Solar Topps installs Dual-Channel Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) photovoltaic string inverters so that solar panel strings can have two different orientations such as panels mounted on south, east or west facing rooftops. MPPT is the automatic adjustment of the electrical load to achieve the greatest possible solar power energy harvest during moment-to-moment variations of light level, shading, temperature, and photovoltaic module characteristics. These solar power inverters also offer the widest input voltage range that makes it possible to install shorter or longer solar panel strings as needed; delivers transformerless operation; and provides a NEMA-4 rated enclosure that protects against the harshest outdoor weather conditions.

Expert Sun Shade and Sun Power Analysis
In addition to the best components in the business, Solar Topps installations are required to have a computerized Sun Shade and Digital Sun Power analysis to make sure that all of the solar components are installed at maximum power production tilt angles and an accurate south polar orientation. Solar Topps uses a digital solar power meter to check the thermal window efficiency measuring UV, BTU, and solar power reception for every single PV panel in the solar array to make sure that it is producing 100% or more of the name plate energy rating.

Using the best solar panels and photovoltaic inverters available and double checking the entire balance of system's performance is what makes Solar Topps unique. No one else in town guarantees their solar arrays power production like Solar Topps does.

Solar Lease Reseller Program
Solar Topps is currently adding business partners to its Commercial Solar Lease Reseller program. Solar Topps will install a solar power array for any Solar Lease Reseller at around $4.00 per watt or less before rebates for most applications. It is up to Solar Lease Resellers to decide how much margin to they want build into their winning sales proposals.

Solar Lease Resellers interested in reselling Solar Topp's commercial solar leases should contact Neal Uppal, Solar Topp's President, directly at (480) 940-1201 ext. 102

Solar Lease Resellers are responsible for developing business leads and closing solar lease contracts with airports, auto repair shops, banks, car dealerships, car washes, churches, convenience stores, customs brokers, dairies, dentists, doctor offices, design centers, farms, feed stores, franchises, freight forwarding, grocery stores, health spas, hospitals, hotels, manufacturing plants, model homes, ranches, retail outlets, real estate offices, warehouses, strip center shopping malls and large parking lot owners that need solar power arrays and shaded solar parking covers.
