Commercial Solar Panel Systems
Reducing energy consumption and Carbon emissions is an on-going challenge for all commercial organisations. According to the Government’s ESOS (Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme is a compliance scheme for large companies), 75% of the organisations audited could make energy savings in excess of 23%. In a typical commercial building, boilers, chillers and blowers can be triggered to run by any one of a huge number of devices which are programmed to come on and go off based on a number of factors such as temperature, time or demand. However, any one of these components can fail or malfunction. Without thorough investigation, these failures are extremely difficult to detect. So most organisations will not know where their energy is being wasted.
Whether your property is a retail shop, factory, warehouse or office, likelihood is you will be consuming the majority of your energy during the day. Consequently installing a solar system could be the most efficient way to reduce both energy costs and Carbon emissions. As an example a 50 kW solar installation requires around 350 m² of roof space and will generate 50,000 kW hours of electricity and 22.5 metric tons of CO₂ savings per year . At current rates this equates to around £6,500* in annual savings and £2,160* in FiT payments. Which means combined annual savings of £8,660.
(* based on electricity costs and FiT rates as at 01 Jan 2017)
As of 1st January 2017, Evergen are able to offer finance for Solar installations at very competitive rates. Finance is available for up to 60 months and based on a lease model (off balance sheet) without affecting your debt/equity ratio.
Public Sector Solar Panel Systems
Public Sector buildings such as Council Offices, Leisure Centres and schools have large roofs and consume majority of their energy during the day. That makes investing in a Solar investment extremely worthwhile. Not only can they drastically reduce their energy costs, but can also benefit from the Governments Feed-In-Tariff payments which are guaranteed for 20 years. And if they don’t want to make the up front investment, Evergen can offer finance at very competitive rates as low as 2%. (* interest rates vary and depend on credit worthiness)
Vast majority of Public Sector buildings are old, not well insulated and have huge energy demands. Evergen has installed solar on dozens of Schools and Council offices in a number of Counties including Surrey, Berkshire and Buckinghamshire.
We have installed solar on some iconic buildings such as the Town Hall of the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead.
Why Get Solar Panels On Your Building?
– Lifetime of free or cheap electricity (great for the bottom line)
– Reduce your CO emissions (great for the environment and your CSR)
– Reduce your dependence on just one energy supplier
Is My Roof Suitable?
To be able to qualify for the Government scheme’s Feed-In Tariff, you will need to make sure that your property is has a energy performance certificate rated C or above. This essentially provides important details on the current performance of your property and how you can improve the energy performance.
