Chile has seen solar electricity be sold at $29.10 a megawatt-hour, nearly half of electricity from coal.

With lower costs and increased energy efficiency, it makes sense to consider using solar energy in your place of business. You could reap the benefits of using solar panels while saving money over the long term.
