Man Installing Solar Panels On Roof

Following our last blog on CHP Units, we want to highlight another energy-efficient way of reducing your gas and electricity consumption, which will help you lower your expenditure on energy, crucial during this current energy crisis. With this in mind, this week, we want to highlight the advantages of solar panels as an alternative energy source that could save you a substantial amount of money.

What is Solar Power and How Do Solar Panels Work?

Solar power enables your company to generate its own electricity by converting the sun’s energy into electricity. The conversion of the sun’s power to electricity takes place using solar panels fitted to building rooftops or placed on spare land – known as “ground mount solar”.

Solar panels are several cells made from semi-conducting material, most commonly silicon. When the sun’s rays make contact with these panels, a charge of electricity is created.

Do Solar Panels Only Work in the Sun?

Concerns about the efficiency of solar panels are well warranted, particularly in a place such as Britain, which lacks the year-round sunshine experienced in other parts of the world. However, solar panels do not require direct sunlight to generate energy. The more direct sunlight, the better; however, direct sunlight is not a prerequisite to the efficiency of solar panels. Solar Panels will therefore generate electricity all year round.

What Are The Benefits of Solar Panels?

Solar Panels offer a creative way of gaining control over your business’ energy consumption and expenditure. Solar panels are an extremely effective and efficient way of reducing your overall energy costs.

Benefits include:

– Reducing reliance on the grid power generating power onsite

– Reduces the cost of your electricity

– Provides stable and predictable energy rates

– Delivers a reliable source of efficient energy

– 100% Sustainable

Who Would Benefit From Solar Panels?

With businesses experiencing energy uncertainty due to the current energy crisis, many companies are looking for more choice and control over their energy; however, the fossil fuel market provides little of either, at this moment in time.

Solar Panels represent an innovative and effective way of transitioning away from the volatile fossil fuels sector and moving towards a more predictable and cheaper market. With Solar Panels, your business can extract energy from 100% renewable energy sources, helping you reduce your energy costs and carbon emissions at the same time.

With the global consumption of electricity expected to increase by 65% by 2040, harvesting a regular supply of energy at a stable price will be central to the success of your business.

If you have been hit by the current energy crisis and are looking for alternative ways to fuel your business, or you’re searching for more efficient energy sources that help your business avoid paying a costly CCL charge, then get in contact with BP consulting today and find out how our energy experts can help you save money and reduce your energy consumption today!
