Planning For The Future With Sustainable Energy
With electricity prices rising, companies are increasingly looking to install solar technologies as a means of reducing their energy bills and carbon emissions. Attractive government-backed initiatives, such as the Feed-in-Tariff (FIT) and the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI), make the adoption of solar energy within a company’s energy mix, a sound financial investment.
Funding is available, which offers our customers the ability to “pay as you save”, thus avoiding tying up capital, which could affect cash-flow.
Solar Photovoltaics (PV) panels generate electricity from daylight. The electricity generated can be used within your business, therefore reducing the amount of power you need to buy from your electricity supplier. Whilst saving money is a motivating factor to install PV panels, it is not the only benefit. Businesses today have additional challenges due to factors such as Climate Change Levy (CCL) and the purchase of Carbon Credits to offset carbon emissions. Generating your own energy using Solar PV can help reduce the impact of those green taxes.
Solar Thermal (Hot Water) utilises daylight energy to heat fluid flowing through the solar panel. The heated fluid is then pumped through a heat exchanger in a water cylinder, thus providing hot water to the buildings occupants. This simple process reduces the reliance on traditional methods of heating water, such as electricity, gas, oil and LPG. Solar Thermal has the combined benefits of reducing your water heating costs while cutting your carbon emissions. The introduction of the government backed Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme for companies installing solar thermal technologies, has made the decision to install a system more attractive. The owner of the Solar Thermal system will receive a payment from the RHI for every kWh of heat the system generates, similar to the Feed-In-Tariff (FIT) for Solar PV.
