The demand for renewable energy is growing which is causing prices to come down which allows Green minded business owners to incorporate an environmental policy and a commitment to sustainability within their business plans. By going solar, businesses can contribute to the expansion and adoption of carbon-cutting renewable energy technology which helps to build a more sustainable planet. Listed below are ten reasons why a solar energy system might be a good fit for your business and a good return on your investment.
LOWER ENERGY COSTS
One of the best reasons to go solar is the reduction in energy costs.
Recent technology has lowered the cost of manufacturing and installation of solar panels is now more affordable.
Federal and State tax advantages incentivize business owners to deploy solar energy solutions.
Traditional electricity generation travels long distances whereas solar panels are right on top of the roof improving electricity efficiency because the distances are shorter.
The average lifespan of solar panels is 25 to 30 years, and although they can still produce electricity beyond their lifespan, it is considerably less than when they were first installed.
While a solar panel does require some maintenance and cleaning to operate at full efficiency, there is virtually no day-to-day maintenance, making it an easy “tenant” for your business.
Moving to solar power helps to relieve stress on the grid which provides greater grid security.
The sun provides us with a free, everlasting source of energy which is more energy than we could ever use, and no one can monopolise the sun.
REDUCED CARBON FOOTPRINT
Solar energy is clean, renewable, and abundant. Unlike fossil fuels, solar energy does not pollute the environment.
Our national economy can be helped by solar power with the installation of solar panels which will create good paying jobs that cannot be outsourced.
