While solar panels are known to be one of the best and cleanest renewable energy sources available, not many people are aware of the other benefits that a solar panel installation can provide for their business.
The majority of businesses require lots of energy to power their workplace, so it is important to choose the right energy source to enable optimum performance and lower costs for your company.
Here’s why your business should consider a solar panel installation.
One of the biggest benefits of opting for a solar panel installation is that your business will save a significant amount of money on electricity each year. While the initial set-up cost might be higher than other investment opportunities, this cost will be recovered in 5-7 years and from then on savings will be considerable.
This is because solar panels absorb the sun’s energy to generate electricity for free, which typically cuts electricity bills by 15-25%.
Once installed, solar panels require very little maintenance.
Unlike a boiler, your solar panels should work effectively without a yearly service, which can save you considerable maintenance costs. The only maintenance cost that is unavoidable is the inverter, which is typically replaced after the system has been operating for 15 years.
Not only do solar panels require minimal maintenance, but they are long lasting too. They generally last around 30 years but will still produce electricity for many years after, just at a slower rate.
With technology continuously advancing, the lifespan of solar panels is set to exceed its current rate, so now is a good time to invest in solar panels for your business.
Another advantage of solar panels is their versatility.
With solar panels, you’re not limited to relying on a single source of energy as they can be combined with other forms of renewable energy for convenience and a greater value for money.
Solar panels work particularly well with heat pumps to provide full-scale heating in the winter months and air conditioning in the summer, without having a high energy consumption rate.
Combining multiple energy solutions ensures flexibility with how your business is heated.
