When is Solar PV a good business investment?

Businesses across the region and the UK are increasing their sustainability efforts as a result of increasing energy costs and the requirement for business to have green credentials. However, it is important to ensure that it is a viable option for you and your business.

High Energy Usage

Businesses in manufacturing, processing, farming and leisure tend to have a high energy use and therefore solar PV is an excellent investment with an average payback within 3-5 years.

Unused Roof Space/Land

If you have a large roof space or land attached to your premises, this can be used to install solar panels to meet your current consumption or feed back to the grid using an export tariff.

Winning Contracts

Tendering and pitching for work is a competitive process. Some contracts now require companies to be meeting Net Zero targets or working towards a zero carbon strategy.

Environmental Commitment

If your business values sustainability and aims to reduce its carbon footprint, investing in solar PV aligns with environmentally conscious practices and can enhance your brand image.

Before making any decisions, it’s crucial to conduct a comprehensive feasibility survey, considering factors such as energy consumption patterns, available space to site panels and your current energy tariff and usage.
