Build A Greener Future For Your Business
If you’re looking to future-proof your business and begin your journey to self-sufficiency, then transitioning to green energy offers, by far, the highest return on investment. At Britlec, we are dedicated to supporting our clients on this journey by supplying, installing and maintaining not only solar panels but also battery storage.
We spend time understanding your current and future energy demands to ensure that your system aligns perfectly with your requirement not only now but on a long-term basis. It all begins with an initial consultation and site survey.
Why Invest In Solar?
Companies are actively encouraged to make “greener” business decisions and lower their carbon footprint. Not only do solar panels help to achieve just that, but they also offer a wealth of additional benefits, such as:
- Protect your business from fluctuating energy prices
- Save money that can be reinvested into growth
- Lower your dependency on the grid
- Solar panels are known as a low-risk investment
- Surplus power can be sold back to the grid
Types Of Solar Panels Available
Before recommending a system, we will always arrange a site survey and, from here, create a solution tailored exclusively to your business. We will advise on which solar panel type caters best to both your requirements and site specification; these include:
Roof-mounted solar panels are the most popular option and suit all commercial property types, from office buildings to educational campuses. They are most effective when south facing, as this is the direction with the most direct sunlight. However, this most definitely doesn’t mean that if your roof points in a different direction, you cannot take advantage of solar panels.
Perfect for making use of extra car park space, ground-mounted solar panels are typically chosen when a site attracts plenty of natural light, yet roof systems are not feasible. For example, the roof has skylights or vents. They can either be installed straight into the ground at an angle or mounted on a pole, both of which can be fitted with tracking systems that adjust based on the sun’s position.
Maximise Efficiency With Battery Storage
Particularly over the summer months, you may generate more power than your business needs – this is where pairing your solar panels with battery storage proves beneficial. Battery storage allows you to store excess energy as backup power, which can then be used during peak hours or on those darker days, helping you become independent from the grid. Not only this, but in the event of a power outage, you can use the power you have stored to continue operations and avoid downtime.
