With energy bills being a large overhead for churches and charities we can help a great deal. We can cut  your energy greatly bills with solar PV systems and LED lighting.

Whatever type of church or charity you are solar PV makes good sense.  These types buildings all require electricity to power lighting, air conditioning, catering facilities and such which can create a high energy demand. Highly efficient LED lighting is also perfect for these types of businesses bringing further savings.

A solar PV system can get you in shape

If you run a single site church or charity, self-funded solar PV system will give the best returns. This will cut your energy bills by a vast amount and give you a second income stream with the Government’s feed-in tariff.

This also applies to multi-site charities or churches, why not turn your unused roof space into a investment. If you have large roof spaces and multiple sites you could qualify for a Power Purchase Agreement. This is where a solar PV system is fitted for free and maintained for a 20-40 year term. In this scenario you buy your electricity from the PPA provider at a lower cost than what you buy it from the grid.

We have experience working with these types of businesses and have installed solar PV on many sites. For the NTCG (New Testament Church of God) we have rolled out many solar PV systems including their London, Birmingham and Northampton(see above image) sites to name a few.

Now is the time to upgrade – LED lighting

As mentioned above LED lighting is a must in this day and age is a must, you can save up to 90% on lighting costs. These LED system have very short payback times and in fact the average payback time is 1.5 – 3 years. You must also remember LED technology last for around 20 years without replacement.
