Commercial solar PV financial returns

Solar PV saves SMEs and large corporations thousands of pounds when electricity is used on site.

Did you know that commercial solar photovoltaic (PV) systems can generate electricity cheaper than that bought from the National Grid?

That’s why schools, universities and other businesses are continuing to install solar PV systems as quickly as they can.

If you pay 7p per unit of electricity, or even 12p per unit, and use electricity at your own site, a solar PV system can provide cheaper electricity for your business for over 30 years.

And when electricity prices are predicted to increase by anything from 5% per annum, you can protect your business from rising prices today.

As old coal-fired power stations are closed down and replaced by the sky-high prices from Hinkley’s nuclear energy, many businesses are looking for renewable energy alternatives.

Generating electricity from your own solar PV system is cheaper than the electricity you buy from the National grid when you tailor the system to meet the needs of your business.

In addition, your business will be paid by the Government for every unit of electricity that you generate from solar PV via the Feed-in Tariff (FIT). The FIT is set to give higher financial returns for businesses with larger roofs and systems to encourage businesses with high electricity demands to install solar PV systems on their premises. There is also currently a sweet spot for the returns from 30 kWp systems which is particularly attractive for schools and SME’s.
