Commercial Solar Panel Installers Essex

Why Should Essex Businesses Invest In Solar Panels?

Financial Benefits:

Essex’s commercial enterprises transitioning to solar energy are already experiencing significant advantages. Implementing solar power in these facilities not only promotes environmental sustainability but also brings considerable financial rewards. Companies can transform existing rooftops or land areas into efficient energy producers. A well-designed solar system can reduce reliance on traditional electricity by 25 to 35%, leading to substantial cost savings. This reduction in expenses enhances long-term financial stability, providing an economical and efficient energy solution for Essex’s commercial sector.

Predictable Energy Costs:

Solar power offers economic stability to Essex by maintaining low energy costs despite common market fluctuations. Unlike traditional power sources, solar energy is the most reliable and consistent option. Essex businesses stand to benefit significantly from reduced expenses, especially when compared to the cost of standard grid electricity, thereby enhancing their financial strategies.

Return on Investment (ROI):

Installing solar panels in Essex is a wise financial move. While it requires an initial investment, local businesses can start seeing returns within five years by selling excess energy back to the grid, thus generating additional income. This strategy not only promotes economic growth in Essex but also proves to be a sound business decision.

Save the Planet:

Essex’s investments in solar power mark a significant step toward reducing fossil fuel dependence and embracing greener energy solutions. This commitment not only protects the local environment but also positions Essex as a leader in sustainability efforts. By choosing renewable energy, businesses can decrease their reliance on finite resources, thereby reducing their carbon footprint and environmental impact.

Financing for Commercial Solar Installations in Essex

Essex 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.
