Commercial solar panels have the potential to save your business money and even earn you an income, all through converting the sun’s rays into valuable power for your property. Eneco Consulting can help assess your solar needs, from analysing your energy consumption profile to providing recommendations to ensure you have sufficient energy for your premises.
The Benefits of Business Solar Panels
Solar energy offers a great range of benefits for businesses in virtually all sectors and industries, from warehouses and offices to retail parks, schools and public spaces. One of the primary reasons why so many businesses are opting to invest in solar power is the cost-saving benefits it provides. With commercial solar PV, you could reduce your electricity bills by as much as 90% and potentially pay the equivalent of 2p/kWh for the electricity you use.
Commercial solar panels are low maintenance and won’t disrupt your business in any way – in fact, with the latest technology, you could be benefitting from free power almost instantly after installation. Solar panels for businesses also provide guaranteed returns, with a potential ROI of up to 20%. Over the 25-year lifespan of solar panels, you could be looking at savings of thousands of pounds. And if you’re using industrial solar panels, you can even sell excess energy as an additional revenue stream.
With the climate crisis such a prominent issue today, investing in renewable energy can improve the public perception of your business through corporate social responsibility, which is another valuable advantage for brands who are conscious of their image.
Why Use Commercial Solar Panels for Your Business?
Whichever sector you work in, your business can take advantage of the many benefits that solar panels can deliver. Perhaps you want to cut costs on your energy bills, futureproof your business’ energy supply or simply reduce the carbon footprint of your company. Commercial solar panels can provide a fantastic renewable energy solution that your business can benefit from for many years to come.
There has been a steady increase in the number of businesses investing in solar power. Since most businesses are active throughout the day, when solar panels produce the most energy, it is an energy source that makes sense for commercial premises.
For this reason, solar PV can save your business a huge amount of money each year – especially if you run an energy-intensive business, such as warehouses or industrial premises. The advantages of commercial solar energy can be applied to almost any sector, meaning that whatever your business or organisation, you stand to benefit.
How Much Do Solar Panels Cost?
The cost of commercial solar PV depends on several factors, from the size of your property to where you intend to install them. If you’re paying outright, a small commercial solar panel system is likely to cost in the region of £10,000. This cost includes the supply and installation fees, as well as inverters and isolators, testing and certification, and administrative fees, such as registering with regulators.
The good news is that there are schemes and finance agreements available to help businesses make the most of solar power. Eneco can help you in identifying schemes you may be eligible for to lower the cost of switching to commercial solar PV.
