As the cost of energy continues to rise, the importance of maintaining a healthy environment certainly seems to grow as a concern for investors, stakeholders, and occupants who are looking to invest in or work with a business. Installing a solar system is a cost-effective, energy-efficient and sustainable way to reduce the environmental impact and energy budget of a business.
This is something that Solar Select specialise in. A small family business with a big impact, Solar Select have over 30 years’ experience in the electrical industry and diversified into solar energy a decade ago, committed to keeping up with the latest technology and sustainable energy expertise to offer customers the very best solutions. This Worcestershire-based company specialise in solar PV, battery storage and charging, residential and commercial solar installations.
Solar Select work with brands to improve the profitability and green credentials of businesses while at the same time reducing their carbon footprint. As each project is unique, Solar Select can create custom solar energy and battery solutions that fit the specific requirement of your home, office or commercial building, designing a system that is bespoke and tailored to your business or home.
Unlike many residential properties, commercial and agricultural premises usually benefit from having an abundance of roof areas which can be used to generate free electricity. Installing solar PV systems on commercial roofs reduces the need to purchase electricity from the grid during daylight hours and can save businesses thousands of pounds a year.
There are many benefits for businesses when installing a solar PV system, including savings on energy costs, reducing carbon emissions, and improving green credentials for a company.
Solar energy is a renewable source, meaning its practically inexhaustible. It reduces reliance on finite fossil fuels, helping to mitigate climate change and environmental degradation.
Lower energy costs
When you turn to solar you gain energy independence. Once installed solar solutions result in significant savings over the systems lifespan.
Research shows that Solar PV can reduce electric bills by up to an incredible 50%, and business owners can utilise between 80-100% of the free electricity generated. This is vital as energy costs continue to rise and are a significant overhead cost for businesses. Investing in solar panels allows businesses to take control of their own long-term investments.
Although installing solar panels can be a large upfront investment, many regions offer incentives, making that initial investment more affordable and accelerating the payback period. Solar energy can power lighting and hot water, meaning that businesses can use less gas as well as electricity, saving on energy costs overall and running many parts of a building through renewable energy.
Energy efficiency and independence
Solar Select can also provide further benefits with a retrofit battery storage system, allowing businesses to save even more on their energy bills and become up to 90% energy independent. The majority of solar PV system owners use an average of 25-35% of their generated electricity, with the remainder being exported to the electricity grid. When the output from the solar panels exceeds the demand, the surplus energy can be used to charge batteries which can then be used to provide power when demand is higher, during the day or at night.
A battery storage system utilising lithium-ion batteries will enable a solar PV system owner to utilise around 90% of the electricity generated by their solar panels. The battery stores this electricity, preventing it from being exported to the grid and discharges it when the local load exceeds electricity production, reducing your electricity bill. Incorporating battery storage in solar solutions diversifies your energy sources, reducing vulnerability to external price fluctuations and supply disruptions of conventional fuels.
Using clean and renewable energy such as solar power brings benefits a business by lowering its carbon footprint, improving the company’s green credentials and helps meet sustainability goals. The installation of solar panels can help businesses comply with environmental regulations and demonstrate their commitment to net zero targets as the UK aims to reduce greenhouse emissions.
Utilising solar energy can also gain businesses a positive reputation as a brand with environmental values contributing to the fight against climate change. This can attract customers, investors and stakeholders who are environmentally conscious and are looking for businesses with an eco-friendly ethos and sustainable services.
Adopting a solar solution certainly demonstrates a commitment to responsible stewardship, enhancing a reputation and attracting the environmentally savvy.
