Increasing Net Operating Income (NOI) is a leading concern for self-storage facility owners. As competition and technology rise in the self-storage industry, lower rental prices and concerns about energy inflation to support the technology puts business leaders’ NOIs at risk.
To adapt to these pressures, the self-storage industry has become a leader in embracing solar and all it has to offer. Not only does solar allow facility owners to positively contribute to their NOI by reducing their operating costs and their tax liability, but it also gives them the advantage of improving their property value.
Together, solar and self-storage are a dream team given their electricity demand, large footprint, and ample rooftop space. Solar gives you the power to optimize your facility and add another revenue stream.

This CubeSmart managed property in Brandon FL partnered with ESA to increase the property value through reducing operating expenses and thus raising the property net operating income. By adding 280 solar panels, the total electric bill was reduced by 97% generating $579,000 of electric bill savings over the next 25 years. This project will generate a 14.4% IRR and is expected to generate $480,000 of property value increase at a 4% cap rate.
