Commercial Solar Panel Installers Watford

Why Should Watford Businesses Invest In Solar Panels?

Financial Benefits:

Watford businesses are benefiting significantly from integrating solar energy into their operations. This shift supports environmental conservation and offers substantial financial perks. By using rooftops or unused land for solar energy, companies can reduce reliance on traditional electricity by 25 to 35%, achieving impressive cost savings. These financial benefits enhance long-term economic stability, making solar power an affordable and efficient solution for Watford’s commercial sector.

Predictable Energy Costs:

Solar energy enhances Watford’s economic stability by offering low, stable energy costs, unaffected by market fluctuations. Unlike conventional sources, solar power is reliable and consistent. Watford businesses can significantly lower expenses compared to traditional grid electricity, bolstering their financial planning and overall business strategy.

Return on Investment (ROI):

Installing solar panels in Watford is a smart financial move. Though there is an initial investment, businesses can see returns within five years by selling excess energy back to the grid, generating additional revenue. This approach promotes economic growth in Watford and exemplifies prudent business planning.

Save the Planet:

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

Financing for Commercial Solar Installations in Watford

Watford 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.
