USE OF SOLAR ENERGY IN COMMERCIAL BUSINESSES
You would be surprised to know that solar energy costs are less as compared to traditional electricity in several markets all over the world. Solar energy systems are not only being installed in the residential sector, but even commercial businesses now understand the value addition made by solar energy systems.
Various solar power companies install systems without demanding any upfront costs. As a result it is possible for your business to end up paying less for eco-friendly, abundant solar energy.
HOW IT WORKS
How can solar energy power your plant or commercial business space? The setup and process are quite simple. Solar panels are made using photovoltaic cells that have the ability to produce direct current (DC) electricity from sunlight throughout the day.
Typically, there is an inverter that transforms this direct current electricity into AC or alternating current electricity. This is what is actually utilized by the business. When a greater amount of power is produced by the solar energy system (than what is required), the power is fed back into your electricity grid.
COMMERCIAL BUSINESSES CAN TAKE ADVANTAGE OF OPEN LAND OR ROOF SPACE AND
- Minimize operating costs
- Save energy costs for a number of years
- Reduce their carbon footprint
- Show their commitment to social responsibilty
FINANCIAL BENEFITS OF COMMERCIAL SOLAR ENERGY
Even if your business has very good intentions, when an investment fails to pencil out, it won’t make much sense for you to consider it. The same holds true for solar power investment. Several businesses are unaware about certain facts associated with solar finance. For example, there are many businesses that manage to get 15 to 25% in after-tax-returns. This could translate into savings of several thousand dollars every year!
DIFFERENT TYPES OF COMMERCIAL SOLAR ENERGY SYSTEMS
It is a myth that you require an abundance of roof space in order to install a solar power system in your commercial business space. Today modern technology has enabled firms to manufacture different types of solar systems to match the needs of all businesses. Some more innovative systems include the super high efficient commercial solar module, Helix, by SunPower.
