Commercial Solar PV
Commercial Solar PV panels will protect your business against rising energy costs!
Commercial solar pv panel systems are now a viable investment for businesses thanks to the Feed In Tariff (FIT) and the easing of Planning Requirements. Solar PV can now be installed on commercial premises under permitted development rights, meaning no planning requirements in most cases.
Solar panels effectively become another income stream which for businesses with suitable premises is an exciting opportunity. A system could produce an ROI of between 10% and 15% and even better in some cases.
Additionally many firms feel that demonstrating green credentials is very positive and can provide a focus for positive PR and marketing. This means that commercial PV is a great way for businesses to create additional income, reduce CO2 emissions and benefit from the promotion of corporate responsibility.
Several commercial sectors can benefit from the FIT and reduced energy bills.
PV systems can either be installed on Agricultural buildings or as ground mount systems and give agricultural land owners the opportunity to provide an additional income from the large roof spaces often available or areas of land that maybe unused – More about Solar for Farms and Agriculture >
Schools and Public Sector
Schools and other public organisations have a responsibility to lead by example and a Solar PV system can demonstrate a commitment to CO2 Reduction whilst producing an income and providing some protection against future electricity cost rises. Particularly in the case of schools and Colleges system monitoring can be incorporated so that it can be used as an educational tool for staff and children. Public sector buildings operate during daylight hours and can therefore get the most out of a system. More about Solar for schools>
Businesses are high users of electricity and generally have the largest energy usage during daylight hours. Therefore will gain the most benefit from a well designed Solar PV system and at the same time can benefit from some eco friendly marketing and positive PR.
New build properties are now subject to strict building regulations and will often need to incorporate an element of renewable energy in to any build. Solar PV is the most cost effective and simplest technology to programme into a busy building schedule.
