As energy prices continue to rise due to the increasing scarcity of fossil fuels such as coal and oil as well as government legislation that forces companies to look for more sustainable ways of powering their business, turning to solar PV for your business’ energy needs has become a logical solution.
Turning to solar PV for your business allows you to generate free, renewable, solar energy that is not only good for your pockets but good for the environment.
Fossil fuel energy sources release harmful and damaging chemicals into the environment, whereas renewable energy sources, such a solar, rely completely on naturally occurring sources, the sun, to generate energy (for more about how solar energy works, visit our ‘Solar PV’ page).
In recent years, the cost of installing a solar PV system for your business has lowered significantly, making solar one of the most popular choices for companies looking to turn to renewable energy. Installing solar PV for your business is one of the most cost effective methods of generating your energy needs.
In addition to the money solar PV could save your business through savings made on your energy bills, through a government-led scheme known as the Feed-in Tariff, owners installing solar PV for the business get paid for the green energy they produce as well any excess energy they sell back to the grid.
The Feed-in Tariff is open to all businesses with a solar system that meets the set energy criteria.
There are countless benefits of installing solar PV for your business, below we have listed just a few.
• With the cost of heating and electricity bills on the rise, turning to solar PV for your business’ energy needs will reduce your bills and expenditure and protect you from further price increases.
• The price of a commercial solar PV system has decreased significantly in recent years, which has made them more affordable for smaller businesses.
