Electron Green works with landlords of all sizes, including some of the biggest in the world on their Europe-wide portfolios. Landlords are choosing rooftop solar as it delivers significant carbon reductions, optimises an otherwise wasted space, meets the growing demand for sustainable buildings and results in improved occupancy rates and increased rental income. Tenants benefit from lower-cost green energy as well as meeting their own ESG targets. Everyone wins.
We can fully finance, develop and operate your rooftop solar PV systems. You or your tenants simply pay for the solar electricity used.
For landlords wanting to buy the system themselves, Electron Green will not be beaten on price and take on full project management.
We have a track record in managing solar installations to investment grade standard. This includes a complete asset register of technical, commercial and administrative documents and ongoing management.
We conduct commercially focussed feasibility studies to assess the potential for solar on your assets.
We propose the optimum system size for you and your energy profile. It is not always optimal to fill the whole roof with solar.
Solar offers energy resilience and independence from volatile electricity pricing and underpins growth of EV charging and battery storage.
Landlords are facing rising financial and regulatory pressures, yet millions of square metres of commercial rooftops are under-utilized and undervalued. We can optimise their value with solar, which is both electricity generation and a sustainability statement. Our role is to make switching on solar as easy as possible for you, and to help improve the energy performance of properties, make them more attractive to tenants and help meet Net Zero targets.
“ Fully quantifying, assessing, and prioritising the portfolio encompasses a set of multiple demands, considerations and interests. It takes a unique set of skills to deliver strategy and implementation with equal excellence. ”
There is a growing body of evidence indicating the impact sustainability can have on property value.
In the US, for example, Nereit – the representative body for REITs – has published data showing that green certified buildings can translate into a 31% increase in sales value, 23% higher occupancy rates and an 8% increase in rental income. Elsewhere in the world, Knight Frank has surveyed the impact of green ratings on sale value for offices in London, Sydney, and Melbourne, finding an 8-18% price premium for green-rated offices above those with no sustainability certification and, in London, 13% premium on rent for BREEAM ‘outstanding’ and ‘excellent’ rated properties.
Solar can play a significant role here in two key ways. First, using on-site solar electricity cuts carbon emissions and will produce a better sustainability rating for the building. Secondly, there is an opportunity to directly monetise the square metres of the roof by charging tenants for electricity.
Our solar PV system will deliver electricity directly into your building. Your business will use the low-cost electricity generated by the solar panels first, while staying connected to the grid, so there’s no need to change your existing utility supplier.
The cost of your electricity supply from a utility company is comprised of two elements, broadly split as raw electricity (‘commodity price’) and levies, taxes, and transmission (‘non commodity price’). With the electricity supply from the roof, you are only paying for the raw electricity.
While daylight reaches the panels, the solar PV system will continuously supply electricity. Depending on when and how much energy you use, solar can meet up to 40% of your electricity needs and, whether you’re a 24/7 operation or a 9-5 weekday business, we design systems to meet diverse needs.
The roles that we take on are as varied as our clients. At one extreme, we fully fund, specify and manage PV systems across different European markets. But we also work in partnership with smaller landlords who simply want to install solar at the best price.

Governments and corporations around the world continue to set stretching low carbon targets, and there is increased evidence of smart businesses anticipating increased regulation by making changes to the way they operate, now.
The International Energy Agency (IEA) calls solar ‘the new king’ of electricity. It is fast to deploy, does not disrupt business as usual, and delivers big cuts to carbon emissions. It’s also highly visible, confirming a commitment to positive environmental action, and encouraging others to follow suit.
With Electron Green, there is every reason to switch on solar today.
We are here to help - whether you want to cut your electricity bills, you're considering solar, or you're concerned about your carbon emissions. Whatever your start point, we have experts across the business who'll give you an honest assessment of options.
