The cost savings of commercial solar panel installation.



We know how valuable renewable energy sources are for improving the efficiency of your commercial building. A solar PV system is a great investment to make, as it can lower your carbon output and reduce costs, whilst giving your business energy security.

What are commercial solar panels?

Commercial solar panels are the perfect investment and will help your business save money in the long term. Solar panels generate electricity from the sun’s rays, so whenever the sun’s out, you will be creating electricity. The great thing about them is they don’t need direct sunlight so on cloudier days, you will still be able to create your own electricity.

Are commercial solar panels worth it?

Commercial solar panel installation offers many great benefits. Firstly, they will drastically reduce your costs, as well as helping your company lower its carbon footprint, and providing you with a competitive advantage. As one of the fastest growing energy sources, solar gives your business a way to create your own energy and become less reliant on the National Grid. Over the last decade there has been a decline in the payback time for solar panel systems, with the probability of many properties breaking even as early as 2027. 

Cost savings of commercial solar panel installation

Reduce costs

Solar panels may have a high upfront cost, but they are sure to save you money in the long run. By producing your own energy, your company will use less energy from the National Grid, meaning you will spend less money and be able to reduce the overall costs of your business.

Smart Export Guarantee (SEG)

One easy way for your business to make money from a commercial solar panel installation is to export any excess energy back to the National Grid. The Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) is a government backed initiative, where energy companies pay you for the excess energy you export. Different energy providers have varying rates, so make sure you do your research and find what works best for you. Using this initiative, the payback on a commercial solar installation could be less than 5 years, making it a cost-effective choice for your business.

Number of solar panels

The number of commercial solar panels your business needs will depend on the size of your business and how much energy you want to produce. Make sure to take into consideration how much energy your business uses daily, for example, if you use a lot of machinery, you’re more likely to need a bigger system compared to a company which predominantly uses computers. Our team at Power and Control are here to help design the most suitable system possible.
