Compare My Local ... Business Solar Panels
Commercial solar panels are a fantastic way to help cut running costs as they help you to dramatically cut down on your energy bills. By having solar panels installed you'll be able to start generating your own electricity, which will help to cut costs in the long run. With electricity costs also on the rise you'll also be protecting yourself against future price rises and will also help to reduce you companies' carbon footprint.
Commercial solar panels work by absorbing sunlight and then converting it into electricity that is both safe and ready-to-use. The way that solar energy works is all based on the 'photovoltaic effect'. In basic terms the panels react to sunlight by creating electrons, which then convert into electricity.
The great thing about solar energy is that it is one of the cleanest ways to produce energy and requires very little maintenance once the panels have been installed.
To help incentivise businesses to invest in commercial solar panel systems the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) introduced FITs. The Feed-in-Tariff currently pays you up to 16.8p per kWH depending on the commercial system in use. However, this figure is set to decrease slightly in August 2012. Additionally, Export Tariffs add an extra 3p per kilowatt-hour of electricity that's generated on top of the initial figure.
Commercial solar panel systems can vary in price depending on your businesses' specific requirements. Commercial systems usually contain up to and above 1000 solar modules that are interconnected to achieve a specific power output. The costing's will also vary depending on the size of the installation and can range from as little as £10,000 to £100,000 for large solar installations.
