Renewable technologies use natural energy to make electricity, and solar is one of the fuel sources. According to Energy UK, renewable sources made up 25% of electricity generated in 2015, and the UK has a target of raising this to 30% by 2020. Solar energy has come a long way since its discovery by Alexandre Edmond Becquerel in 1839. Climate change research in the 1950’s has prompted an acceleration in the development of solar cells, nowadays solar panels and their benefits can be seen everywhere you go.
Could your business be a part of a positive change by introducing solar panels?
Solar panel harvests light, the photovoltaic cell convert the sunlight into electricity, which can be used to run office equipment and lighting.
You may be looking to become more self sufficient in energy generation or reduce your commercial carbon footprint. Saving the environment, and the world can feel like a giant leap, but it is a leap that more and more businesses are taking. Together with our renewable energy partner Beco Energy solutions, JCW can offer nationwide renewable solar energy solutions to commercial offices, government bodies as well as industrial and agricultural sites.
Solar energy can be adapted if you’re off the grid or on-grid.
Rural premises may not be connected to any main electrical or gas supplies, power generated through fuels are burnt on site, oil or LPG can be costly and also need to be stored on site. Leaks undetected can be detrimental to the local natural environment and carbon emission from fuel combustion can be higher when boilers are under maintained.
Solar PV make a highly attractive prospect for those that wish to reduce fuel or energy costs. Some solar thermal panels for commercial premises are listed as eligible equipment under the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) – an UK Government scheme that offers businesses financial aid when they invest in renewable heat technologies.
Solar PV from our partners at Beco are ideally suited to the UK climate and are custom designed to ensure the highest production levels even on overcast days. In addition, solar PV is easily scalable to maximise efficiency for a range of installation sizes. Solar power offer substantial savings and long term stability of supply.
- The UK government scheme Feed-in Tariffs (FIT) pays you for the electricity generated from your solar panels, even if you use it
- What you do not use, can be sold back to the grid
- Cut your electricity bills, Installation of solar PVs make sunlight a free source of power.
- And for the environmental conscious, you will cut your carbon footprint.
Together with our experts at Beco, we can offer integrated battery solutions on site. Solar batteries are a great way to reserve self-generated surplus power instead of suppling back to the main grid. In an outage, you wont need to rely on the power grid, stored energy will be an excellent back up.
