Solar makes Sense for business
Solar systems for businesses can offer even greater benefits than they do for domestic customers.
Electricity use on business premises is concentrated in business hours which for most are daylight hours. With solar PV, this means levels of self use of generated electricity can be very high. The cost of this overhead is better controlled and a large part of it in some instances fixed. Businesses of all sizes are seizing this opportunity to improve their competitive position.
If your use hot water as part of your business activity, solar thermal can reduce these costs. The Commercial Renewable Heat Incentive provides payment for every unit of heat generated.
Resource Efficient Scotland has schemes in place for business to assist with the cost of installation as part of wider energy savings programmes. Please contact them for further details of what is currently available.
Building Solar In
One of the most cost effective ways of installing solar is to include it as part of any building project, be it new, refurbishment or extension. There are many exciting options especially in the field of building integration.
Whatever route is chosen, there can be substantial cost mitigation by effectively designing in solar technologies.
Solar will also enhance the overall energy performance of the building.
We have completed several projects for new build and major refubishments. We welcome enquiries from architects and builders looking to install solar energy systems in properties you are building. We can offer the necessary specialist advice and support from the design stage right through to certification to ensure the benefits of solar are maximised.
