Guide to Saving Energy and Reducing Costs for Businesses

Birds eye view of a forest

In an era characterised by increasing energy demands and the pressing need to combat climate change, businesses are actively seeking sustainable solutions to reduce their carbon footprint and lower energy costs. Among the various renewable energy sources available, solar power has emerged as a compelling option for businesses to embrace. To make this transition to renewable energy easier for businesses everywhere, Electron Green is investing up to £1 billion to fit free-of-charge solar PV panels on commercial roofs and supply inflation-proof low-cost solar electricity to occupants.

Partnering with Electron Green could save your business up to 50% on electricity bills with no upfront costs to you or your business. Not only this, it’s also an incredibly convenient option, as your business won’t even need to change utility suppliers: we’ll just mix solar power with grid electricity. Not convinced yet? Keep reading as we explore the benefits of adopting solar power and how effective it can be in reducing energy bills in the long term.

What Are the Benefits of Solar Power?

Solar power is a clean and abundant energy source that holds immense potential for businesses. By capturing the sun’s energy and converting it into electricity, solar power systems can significantly reduce reliance on conventional energy sources.

Low-Cost Installation and Maintenance

Often, the most unattractive aspect of adopting solar power is the installation cost of the photovoltaic panels, which can set a business back £100,000s. This is a huge capital drain at a time when many businesses are building back up after COVID-19 and have other investments that have to be made.

At Electron Green, we believe these pricey installation costs are what’s standing in the way of the world’s transition to renewable energy solutions. We are removing the financial barrier of all the upfront costs and investing up to £1 billion to install solar panels on the roofs of companies countrywide free of charge. Businesses will not have to pay a penny for the installation. Instead, Electron Green will supply you with the solar power generated at a fixed price with no inflation for your entire contract term. And you have the option to buy the system from Electron Green at any point. At the end of the contract, businesses will own the system and have the benefit of free electricity for many years thereafter.

Energy Independence

Solar power empowers businesses to generate their own electricity, reducing dependence on the grid and shielding against price fluctuations.

On-Site Electricity Generation

By having solar panels installed by us at Electron Green, businesses can generate their own clean and renewable energy directly at their premises. On-site solar, of course, has incontestable provenance and, with none of the significant transmission losses associated with the grid, it is often referred to as ‘deep green’ electricity.

Reduce Grid Dependence

Traditional electricity supply relies on centralised power plants and extensive transmission networks. This infrastructure is vulnerable to disruptions, including power outages, natural disasters, or grid failures. By adopting solar panels, businesses can reduce their dependence on the grid and become less vulnerable to such disruptions.

Mitigate Price Fluctuations

Electricity prices are subject to market fluctuations, influenced by factors such as fuel costs, supply and demand dynamics, and regulatory policies. A rooftop solar system will rarely supply 100% of a business’ electricity needs by it will make a significant contribution. Top-ups are automatically pulled from the grid – and the mix of low-cost solar with higher-cost grid electricity produces a lower energy bill. By generating their own solar power, businesses can stabilise their energy costs and reduce their exposure to price fluctuations in the energy market.

What Are On-Grid Solar Power Systems?

At Electron Green, we offer businesses free-of-charge on-grid solar power systems. On-grid solar power systems, also known as grid-tied systems, are solar energy systems that are connected to the local power grid. Unlike off-grid systems that operate independently, on-grid systems allow businesses to benefit from solar energy while maintaining a connection to the utility grid.

What Are the Benefits of On-Grid Solar Power Systems?

There are numerous benefits to adopting an on-grid solar power system, particularly when the upfront installation cost of solar panels is eliminated by partnering your business with us at Electron Green.

Cost Savings

By generating their own electricity from solar power, businesses can significantly reduce their reliance on utility-provided electricity, resulting in lower energy bills.

Reliability and Flexibility

At Electron Green, we understand how important it is for businesses to have a reliable source of electricity. By using an on-grid system, businesses can still access power from the grid during times when their solar system does not meet the full demand. This ensures uninterrupted operations even on cloudy days or during periods of high electricity consumption.

Environmental Sustainability

Switching to solar power reduces the carbon footprint of businesses by utilising clean and renewable energy. By relying less on fossil fuels, businesses contribute to mitigating climate change and promoting a greener future.
