What is Commercial Solar ?
Businesses across the UK – including factories, offices and education facilities – are increasingly realising the benefits of installing a Commercial Solar PV system to earn a significant tax-free income, make substantial savings on energy bills and improve green credentials.
A Commercial Solar system consists of Solar Panels which convert the sun’s light into electricity using Photovoltaic (PV) cells. Businesses can then take advantage of this generated energy by using it for free to power lighting, technology and machinery.
What are the benefits of Commercial Solar Power?
Commercial Solar Panels represent a secure, risk free and extremely profitable opportunity for Businesses of all sizes, with a great Return on investment.
There are significant financial and environmental benefits for businesses that invest and install commercial solar panels.
Less than a decade ago, solar panels were considered a niche and experimental technology. Ten years on, solar has become the fastest growing energy source worldwide. Technology, politics and finance have aligned to move the technology into the mainstream; solar is now a mass-produced product, delivered at a cost-competitive price. In fact, whilst energy prices have increased year on year, the price of installing solar has plummeted.
A typical commercial solar panel system will provide free electricity for more than 25 years, achieve returns of more than 12% per annum and pay back installation costs within 6-8 years.
Solar panels for business
Working with blue-chip companies, local authorities and SMEs across all industry sectors, Ecogise specialise in commercial solar panels and provide UK businesses with a full turn-key design, installation and maintenance service for solar PV.
Due to the particularly high returns that solar (PV) panels deliver, this technology is one of the most popular sustainable solutions to date. Thousands of UK businesses have now switched to solar to power their operations.
We are solar PV experts and have seen the industry develop throughout our 8-years in operation. Our consultative approach to solar offers you industry leading advice, high quality installation and an award-winning service.
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), NASA and the world’s leading scientists have warned us that if we continue to burn fossil fuels such as gas, coal and oil we risk a man-made disaster of global scale. We must increase and accelerate the rate at which we generate, store and distribute our energy from solar panels and renewable sources if we are to avoid irreparable damage to our planet.
Solar panels offer a means to considerably reducing your organisations’ carbon footprint. A typical 250kWp solar PV system will offset approximately 64 tonnes of CO2 – the equivalent to driving 155,000 miles in a petrol car.
A number of UK organisations including; We The Curious Science Centre, Bristol City Council and Bristol University have already announced a climate emergency, installed solar PV panels and pledged to go carbon neutral by 2030.
