In today’s world, there is a significant push from local governments and other organisations to ensure that solar energy is being utilised where applicable.
Solar energy uses the light and heat of the sun to create energy which would otherwise be provided through electricity, oil and other unsustainable methods.
There are a number of fantastic benefits for your business to switch the solar energy, which will require to installation of solar panels.
Despite the initial expense of installation, the operating costs of your business will reduce significantly. Essentially, a solar power system is the equivalent of pre-paying 40 years’ worth of energy bills. This amazing statistic should convince anyone that solar panels are a worthwhile investment.
Governmental incentives combined with the decreasing costs of purchasing solar panels, especially for industries, means that you will receive a great return on your investment in a very short space of time.
Solar panel installation will be conducted by a certified team, who will carry out the work in a very rapid time. Once installed, a solar panel system requires little to no maintenance work, especially for the first 10 years after initial installation. In fact, some solar power systems will guarantee between 25 to 40 years of efficient service, with many carrying warranties for 25 years and beyond.
Ensuring that your business is seen as “green and eco-friendly” is a very important prospect over the coming years. New research released in 2016 has suggested that the United Kingdom is way behind other western countries in its energy efficiency. Because of this, new laws are coming into effect as early as April 2018, which will require all commercial properties in London to improve their energy efficiency, if it falls below required standards. Introducing solar panels is a guaranteed way to ensure that your commercial property does not fall below the required standards.
An “eco-friendly” company that uses solar energy can also be used as a powerful marketing tool. Not only will prospective clients be delighted to work with a forward-thinking, responsible company, but industry peers will also note your progress and will hold you in higher regard.
While the initial expense of purchasing solar panels for your business may seem off-putting, it is a guaranteed way of reducing your energy bills, ensuring that you comply with new regulations that will become law in the next few years and, perhaps most importantly, will improve the reputation of your business.
