Benefits of using solar power in the industrial sector
In recent years, solar panels have dropped their price and now provides benefits for organizations like yours. Among the advantages are its accessibility to most homeowners and its increasing affordability.
Here, we have listed few advantages that industrial companies can get by going for a solar PV installation.
Reduced electricity bills
Electricity expenses are always increasing. Usually, the electricity bill for a warehouse represents around 15% of the total cost. The tariff rates for solar power are cheaper by about 20% than conventional electricity. Solar power has become a sustainable and cost-effective energy alternative for business owners with a fixed-cost solution, with a lifespan of 25-30 years. This makes your energy bills more predictable at lower costs. Also, maintenance and monitoring of solar systems are cheaper.
Solar power is a 100% clean, renewable energy source that reduces dependence on oil, coal and natural gas for electricity production. These fossil fuels produce damaging emissions that affect the quality of air, water and soil, and are responsible for global warming. According to the experts, by 2065, our planet will lose more species of plants and animals to extinction than in the previous 65 million years combined. These statistics show the effects of greenhouse gases from fossil fuels.
Improve your company image
Looking for new ways to attract customers and clients can definitely be challenging, especially when you have run out of ideas. However, with the number of people looking to make conscious purchasing choices increasing day by day, switching to renewable energy will give you the ability to market your business as green.
In general, manufacturing facilities use large amounts of electricity making them prime candidates for a solar panel system. Another factor is that manufacturers normally use large buildings with a lot of roof space, ideal for a solar panel system. Turning to solar will save a manufacturer millions on electricity costs while being protected against energy price increase.
