Commercial solar panels installations for businesses
Solar electric systems are not just useful for domestic use but can financially beneficial for businesses too.
We install across the South East, whether you need solar panels in Brighton, solar panels Reading or solar panels Oxford. We can visit your site, assess your needs and make recommendations depending on what we find. We will also supply any information on grants available to you if you choose to convert to renewable energy sources.
It can be a confusing procedure, clients often don't know where to start, or question whether solar will work for them or would simply like information on the type of grants available to them. Do not let this deter you, we can provide any help or assistance you require during the process of switching to solar.
Whether your business is located in a new or old industrial building, or even if you want solar panels for warehouses and other external buildings, solar energy systems can be easily integrated into both. We'll work hard to find a solution to meet your requirements.
Solar electric systems are integrated into the building's electrical system, and will provide electricity directly into the distribution system. They are made up of panels mounted on the roof with controls and switches located inside the building.
The panels work by capturing the suns energy, which is simply channelled into the ring main and straight into any appliances that are in use in the building.
This reduces the energy that is drawn from the national grid. When the system is not producing energy the building will still be able to draw from the national grid as usual. The solar electric system will save you money on your bill and reduce the amount of CO2 your building generates.
Key benefits of using commercial solar power
- PV systems produce no greenhouse gases and each kWp can save 455kg of carbon dioxide emissions per year, adding up to about 11 tonnes over a system's lifetime.
- Use of a free energy source during peak trading activity times (daylight hours)
- Well suited to the urban environment
- Huge savings on energy bills due to scale of operations and higher (and climbing) commercial energy rates
- Government sponsored rebates, loans and tax credits
- Little/low maintenance costs
- Improved public relations
Green Investment Bank
The UK is to set up the world’s first investment bank solely dedicated to greening the economy.
The initiative is part of the Government’s commitment to setting the UK firmly on course towards a green and growing economy, while also delivering long-term sustainable growth.
This transition to a green economy presents significant growth opportunities for UK-based businesses, both at home and abroad.
It will require unprecedented investment in key green sectors - an estimated £200 billion is needed for the energy system alone over the period to 2020.
The UK Green Investment Bank (GIB) will be a key component of the progression towards a green economy, complementing other green policies to help accelerate additional capital into green infrastructure.
Its mission will be to provide financial solutions to accelerate private sector investment in the green economy. Capitalised with £3 billion, the GIB will play a vital role in addressing market failures affecting green infrastructure projects in order to stimulate a step up in private investment.
It will build the necessary deep expertise in financial markets and green investments, working towards a ‘double bottom line’ of both achieving significant green impact and making financial returns.
Following best practice, it will be established under the Companies Act and operate at arm’s length from government.
The Government expects to obtain state aid approval for the GIB by autumn 2012. In advance of this, the Government will begin making investments in green projects from April 2012.
The GIB is one of a number of key policies designed help meet environmental objectives and promote economic growth. Other initiatives include the creation of a National Infrastructure Plan, reforms to the electricity market, changes to the climate change levy, the introduction of a renewable heat incentive, the review of waste policy and the reviews of Ofgem and Ofwat.
Several non-green specific policies also support our growth and environmental objectives, including banking reform, support for early stage innovation and skills provision.
