Solar PV to Help Power Your Business
Commercial Solar PV is one of the most efficient ways to make your business or farm more sustainable and keep your energy bills at an all time low.
What is Commercial Solar PV?
Much like residential solar pv systems, a commercial system drives down the costs of electricity bills but on a larger scale
Can be both ground or roof mounted depending on system specification
Referred to as ‘fit and forget’ technology as systems require little maintenance
Receive a feed-in-tariff from the government for the electricity produced by your solar panels
Sell excess electricity back to grid
Lower your business’s carbon footprint
How Does It Work?
Solar panel electricity systems, also known as solar photovoltaics (PV), capture the sun’s energy using photovoltaic cells.
The cells convert the sunlight into electricity, which can be used to run household appliances and lighting. These cells don’t need direct sunlight to work – they can still generate some electricity on a cloudy day.
Solar PV systems will leave you with the following benefits:
- Lower energy bills
Sunlight is free, so once you’ve paid for the initial installation your electricity costs will be reduced.
- Get paid for the electricity you generate
The government’s Feed-In Tariffs pay you for the electricity you generate, even if you use it. With large commercial systems there is potential for a massive return through the income you generate with solar.
- Sell electricity back to the grid
If your system is producing more electricity than you need, or when you can’t use it, you can sell the surplus back to the grid.
- Cut your carbon footprint
Solar electricity is a green, renewable energy source that doesn’t release any harmful carbon dioxide or other pollutants into our atmosphere. Commercial systems can vary massively in array size but stand to reduce the amount of carbon produced even more than a domestic system.
