Solar for business why invest?

By ineco | 3rd August 2022

There are multiple benefits to Solar for business, here are just a few:


Solar for business generates robust financial returns. This is because producing power on-site is much more affordable than buying it from the grid. Current government policy ‘super deduction tax’ also means, for example, that companies can reduce their tax liabilities for investments they make in solar systems.


Solar projects reduce risk. As the UK energy crisis has clearly shown, market rates for electricity and gas can and are changing rapidly. Producing power onsite at a fixed cost means businesses can avoid exposure to this volatility and secure their energy future.


Solar projects reduce carbon emissions. Solar power is zero-carbon at the point of generation. This improves the environmental performance of any building on which it is installed.


It is great for your image – Increasingly, businesses want to do business with companies that are proving their green credentials, which opens up new opportunities for investment, commercial partnerships, and recruitment.


These benefits will only increase as time passes. Businesses that invest in commercial solar power are helping to protect themselves against future risks – for example, from guaranteed further increases in energy bills, or the introduction of policies that impose carbon taxes. Developing onsite generation capacity now also means you have a source of clean, affordable energy for other low carbon technologies, such as electric vehicles and heat pumps, which are rapidly being installed. These benefits are widely recognised by businesses around the UK, which is why the UK’s commercial-scale solar sector is going from strength to strength.
