Why solar panels for my business?
Solar panels are a good option that should be taken into serious consideration for businesses all over the UK, and there are many reasons for this:
Solar panels can give your business a considerable boost by generating free, green electricity to be used onsite. Solar PV is one of the cleanest forms of energy production around. Solar panels will lower your energy demand from the power grid during daylight hours and could potentially save you thousands of pounds every year on energy bills.
Your energy future
It is the fact that the electricity grid is struggling to keep up with our growing economy, talk about ‘the lights going out’ on the news is a reality. If the worst did happen and your business went off-grid a solar panel installation, you would keep running. The Government has introduced mandatory energy audits for large companies through the compulsory Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme, hinting that future energy usage from the grid could also be regulated.
Help the environment
Generating and harvesting electricity from solar on your roof reduces your carbon output and could offset most, if not all, of your business’ carbon emissions. Climate change has become a massive issue over the years, and we are all being asked to do our part. Solar panels are a good strategy for businesses looking to get an edge on their competition. Show the industry you work within your green credentials and strengthen relationships with your customers.
Business finance when looking at solar panel installations
As you may know, the feed-in-tariff was stopped back in March 2019. The effect of the reduction of Feed-in-Tariff over time, then eventually its end has pushed down solar panel prices and equipment.
Your business can make good financial returns buying a solar PV system outright. For companies without capital or that want to spend their money on other projects, we can help. See our finance options page for this.
If your business meets criteria, you may be able to get a power purchase agreement. Solar panels would get installed on your roof at no cost to your business. You then buy your energy from the funder at a much lower rate than you currently pay.
