Commercial Solar Panel Installers Colchester

Why Should Colchester Businesses Invest In Solar Panels?

Financial Benefits:

Colchester’s business community is reaping substantial benefits from adopting solar energy. Utilising solar power in commercial activities helps safeguard the environment and offers significant financial advantages. Businesses can convert their rooftops or unused land into productive energy-generating assets. A strategically designed solar installation can cut dependence on conventional electricity sources by 25 to 35%, resulting in remarkable savings. These reduced expenses boost long-term economic stability, offering an affordable and efficient energy solution for Colchester’s commercial sector.

Predictable Energy Costs:

Solar power brings economic stability to Colchester by keeping energy costs low, unaffected by typical market fluctuations. Unlike traditional energy sources, solar power offers a consistent and dependable alternative. Businesses in Colchester can benefit greatly from lower expenses, especially when contrasted with the high costs of conventional grid electricity, thereby strengthening their financial strategies.

Return on Investment (ROI):

Choosing to install solar panels in Colchester is a respected financial decision. Although there is an upfront investment, local businesses can begin to see returns within five years by selling surplus energy back to the grid, thus generating extra revenue. This approach not only fosters economic growth in Colchester but also demonstrates excellent business planning.

Save the Planet:

Colchester’s dedication to solar power represents a major stride in cutting down fossil fuel usage and adopting cleaner energy solutions. This shift not only safeguards the local environment but also establishes Colchester as a frontrunner in sustainability initiatives. By opting for renewable energy, businesses can lessen their dependence on finite resources, thereby minimising their carbon footprint and overall environmental impact.

Financing for Commercial Solar Installations in Colchester

Colchester 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.
