Commercial Solar Panel Installers Chelmsford

Why Should Chelmsford's Businesses Invest In Solar Panels?

Financial Benefits:

Chelmsford’s business sector is already experiencing significant advantages by integrating solar energy. Harnessing solar power in commercial operations not only aids in protecting the environment but also delivers considerable financial rewards. Companies have the opportunity to transform their rooftops or available land into efficient energy-generating assets. A well-planned solar installation can reduce reliance on traditional electricity sources by 25 to 35%, leading to impressive savings. These decreased costs enhance long-term economic stability, providing an affordable and effective energy alternative for Chelmsford’s commercial enterprises.

Predictable Energy Costs:

Solar power ensures economic stability for Chelmsford by maintaining low energy costs despite the usual market variations. Unlike traditional energy sources, solar power is a reliable and steady alternative. Chelmsford businesses can gain significantly from reduced expenses, especially when compared to the high costs of conventional grid electricity, thereby enhancing their financial strategies.

Return on Investment (ROI):

Opting for solar panels in Chelmsford is a wise financial move. Despite the initial investment required, local businesses can start seeing returns within five years by selling excess energy back to the grid, generating additional income. This strategy not only promotes economic growth in Chelmsford but also exemplifies sound business planning.

Save the Planet:

Chelmsford’s commitment to solar power marks a significant step towards reducing fossil fuel consumption and embracing cleaner energy alternatives. This transition not only protects the local environment but also positions Chelmsford as a leader in sustainability efforts. By choosing renewable energy, businesses can decrease their reliance on finite resources, thus reducing their carbon footprint and overall environmental impact.

Financing for Commercial Solar Installations in Chelmsford

Chelmsford businesses considering installing a commercial solar system will find there are three principal financial options available.

Firstly, the Direct Purchase model allows businesses to own the system outright, with the investment gradually recouped through savings on electricity bills and profits from selling excess energy to the grid.

Next, the solar Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) involves a third party owning and maintaining the system, while your business purchases the produced electricity at a cost approximately 20% lower than usual market rates.

Lastly, Asset Finance provides a way to fund the purchase through loans against the solar panels, with repayment periods typically ranging from 5 to 10 years. This financing option can ease the burden on cash flow, as the savings from energy costs contribute to repaying the loan.

Solar panels use photovoltaic (PV) cells to convert sunlight into electricity. When the sun shines onto the PV cells, it dislodges electrons, generating a flow of direct current (DC) electricity. This current flows into an inverter converting it into alternating current (AC) which is useable by homes and businesses.

The entire process takes about 40-52 weeks. It begins with a preliminary proposal to ensure the PV system aligns with business goals. Next, an application is submitted to the grid for connection approval. Several surveys assess the suitability of the solar array for the proposed roof or ground. After analysis, a formal proposal with final costs is provided to the client. Once agreed upon, planning permissions are submitted. Finally, after these permissions are granted, the project delivery occurs. 

Benefits include reducing electricity bills, reducing carbon emissions and footprint, achieving net zero goals and increasing property values.

Before any solar PV system is installed, a full site and technical survey will be carried out whereby a third party structural survey will assess the structural integrity of the building. The outcome of the surveyors findings will dictate whether or not the building is suitable for solar PV. 

There are several factors that need to be considered:

Energy usage: If your energy consumption is high, solar panels can offset or cover a portion of these electricity bills.

Roof/ground condition and location: to maximise the efficiency, it is important to have an area with minimal shading and a south or east-west roof for the panels. It is important that the roof is also in good condition or remedial works will need to be carried out beforehand.

Fun fact, if your roof is a low pitch, some North facing roofs may even be suitable for solar, particularly on sites that have large energy demands.

Yes definitely.  If you are looking at expanding your solar array, please get in touch with a member of the BeBa team who will assist in working out whether or not you would benefit from an additional solar PV system.  

Yes, there are various national and regional grants available for solar. Please check with your local authority or on the government website to identify whether you could be eligible.
