3 Reasons Why Your Commercial Property Needs To Install Solar PV

3 Reasons Why Your Commercial Property Needs To Install Solar PV

Are you looking for the best source of renewable energy to propel your business into a more sustainable future while saving you money in the long run? The answer is simple: go solar! With the cost savings, eco-friendly benefits, and energy independence it offers, solar energy is truly the best option for businesses seeking a long-term ROI. By tapping the power of the sun, you cannot only reduce electricity bills but also show a strong commitment to sustainability, all while safeguarding against future energy cost hikes.

Many businesses in the UK have already discovered the benefits of going solar. According to a report by the Economist, one-third of businesses in the UK now use solar PV to generate electricity. Over 450 senior executives participated in the survey, which examined their commercial energy usage; solar power emerged as the overwhelmingly favoured option for independent energy generation. 

At Entire Renewables, we have over a decade of experience helping businesses make that switch both in Cheshire and across the UK, making us one of the leaders in sustainable energy. In this blog post, we explore the top three reasons why your commercial property needs to install solar PV, taking a more in-depth look at the environmental, financial, and business benefits of having your own solar panel and battery system. 

Environmental Benefits and Green Credentials

Switching to solar energy offers a multitude of environmental benefits that contribute to a greener, more sustainable future. First and foremost, solar energy produces electricity without emitting harmful greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide, which helps combat climate change. By choosing solar, businesses reduce their carbon footprint, mitigating their impact on the environment. According to the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC), the carbon footprint of rooftop solar panels is approximately 12 times smaller than natural gas and 20 times less than coal, making them a truly eco-friendly alternative. 

Furthermore, opting for solar reduces air pollution. Fossil fuel-based power plants release pollutants like sulphur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, and particulate matter, which contribute to smog and respiratory issues. Solar energy systems produce clean, renewable power without these harmful emissions, leading to cleaner air and a better environment for us all to live in.

In today’s environmentally conscious world, these benefits are increasingly influencing consumer preferences. This means that adopting solar power can greatly enhance your business’s green credentials. According to the latest NielsenIQ study, 61% of UK consumers claimed that sustainability is more important to them than it was two years ago, with 76% calling out for companies to take the initiative to reduce their environmental footprint. This trend is set to continue and intensify. By acting now, your business can reap the reputational benefits of going green immediately while making a genuine impact on the environment. 

Reducing Peak Demand On The Grid

While solar panels alone can deliver substantial benefits, businesses can further amplify these advantages by installing a solar battery system. One key reason is that having your own battery storage reduces your reliance on the power grid by enabling you to store excess energy generated by your solar panels. 

During sunny periods when your panels produce more electricity than your commercial property uses, this surplus energy can be stored in the battery system instead of being sent back to the grid. This stored solar energy can then be used at any time, especially at night when your solar PV panels aren’t producing enough power for your business’s needs or when peak-time electricity costs are high.

What’s more, a solar battery system can provide backup power in the event of a blackout, ensuring power supply to essential appliances and thereby minimising the disruption to your business. As a business owner, this extra peace of mind can be truly invaluable.

At Entire Renewables, not only can we help you install solar panels on your commercial property, but we can also elevate your solar panel system with our cutting-edge battery storage solutions. The addition of a battery can empower you to enjoy greater energy independence and enhanced operational resilience.

Significant Cost Savings

Energy prices in the UK and elsewhere have soared in recent years. Transitioning to solar energy can substantially reduce your energy bills, which can potentially translate into thousands of pounds worth of savings in just one year! Based on the average cost of producing commercial solar electricity of 5p per kWh, businesses that switch from the national grid to solar power can expect around a 60-70% reduction in their energy costs

In addition, you might be able to benefit from a power purchase agreement (PPA) depending on the size of your commercial property. A PPA is a common finance option for larger businesses whose energy consumption and roof space meet certain criteria, allowing eligible businesses to benefit from free solar panel installation financed by a PPA provider. The energy produced by your solar system is subsequently sold back to you at a lower rate than grid prices. This option not only cuts your electricity bills but also eliminates installation costs. It’s like renting out your roof space and purchasing the discounted solar electricity it generates.

Just had a home solar array + battery storage + car charger system and really happy with the system and also that I chose Entire Renewables. From the very first enquiry and “quite” a few quotations to fine tune the system to my exact requirements, through the install and finalisation of the certificates and documentation. The team, in particular Bev was always responsive, patient and kept me informed of progress along the way and things happened when they said they would. I received honest advice and they never tried to sell me anything I didn’t need or want. The team who did the install were fantastic and unbelievably completed the full install in one day. When I had an issue the day after due to a comms link they were there within the hour, not missed a beat since. Great to support a good local professional company from start to finish. 100% satisfied.

We have had no problems with the system and expect to save significant amounts of money with the reduction in our electricity bills. Any questions that we had were answered promptly and efficiently by Bev. The monitoring app is easy to use and provides the information you need. I have no hesitation in recommending Entire
