Are commercial solar panels for a factory worth it?
For many factory owners and managers, solar may have been something you’ve considered in the past. We invite you to revisit the concept now, as quality solar has become increasingly affordable and more in-demand than ever.
For high energy users, you are hit with not only the cost of the energy itself, but also the demand tariff - A charge in your energy bill that means you will have the energy your site requires, on demand. When you utilise solar energy for your factory energy needs, you’re not only reducing your costs by lowering your grid-energy use, but you may also see a fall in this tariff charge as well.
A common misconception about solar energy is that it takes you ‘off the grid’, which may feel daunting for high energy users like yourself. For businesses like yours, solar energy works in tandem with your connection to the main energy grid, ensuring you have access to predictable energy at the times when you need it.
“Choice are honest, upfront and extremely helpful and the shift to solar has been hassle free. Best of all they are truly saving money, not just on the books, but real money that is helping their businesses. I would highly recommend Choice, and have even done so to friends in business as they are the best when it comes to Solar Energy”.
