Is your business utilising its energy efficiently?
Renewable energy and solar power for commercial properties

Big or small, your business can benefit from solar energy. High electricity costs and good roof space provided by commercial properties make a solar panel system a sensible investment. Whether your business is looking to save money, reduce its carbon footprint or secure its future energy supply, Positive Energy Solutions provide expert commercial solar installations with proven high yielding solar panels.

How much energy do commercial solar panels generate?

The average daily solar radiation in the UK is around 4.5kWh/m2/day, but it can vary depending on the location. The performance ratio is a measure of how well the solar panels are working and can range from 0.7 to 0.9. The system efficiency is the percentage of solar energy that is converted into electricity, it can range between 20% – 22%.

For example, a 100 kWp commercial solar panel system with a performance ratio of 0.85, a system efficiency of 21%, and an average daily solar radiation of 1000kWh/m2/yr will generate approximately 83,900kWh per year.

Key Benefits Of Solar PV
There are significant financial and environmental benefits for businesses that invest and install commercial solar panels.

Less than a decade ago, solar panels were considered a niche and experimental technology. Ten years on, solar has become the fastest growing energy source worldwide. Technology and finance has aligned to move the technology into the mainstream; solar is now a mass-produced product, delivered at a cost-competitive price. In fact, the price of energy generated by solar panels is estimated to cost less than a third of electricity bought from the grid.

A typical commercial solar panel system will provide free electricity for more than 25 years, achieve financial returns of up to 20% per annum and pay back installation costs within approximately 5-years.
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), NASA and the world’s leading scientists have warned us that if we continue to burn fossil fuels such as gas, coal and oil we risk a man-made disaster of global scale. We must increase and accelerate the rate at which we generate, store and distribute our energy from solar panels and renewable sources if we are to avoid irreparable damage to our planet.

Solar panels offer a means to considerably reducing your organisations’ carbon footprint. A typical 250kWp solar PV system will offset approximately 64 tonnes of CO2 – the equivalent to driving 155,000 miles in a petrol car.

A number of UK organisations including Bristol City Council and Bristol University have already announced a climate emergency and pledged to go net zero carbon by 2030.
Our relationship with you doesn’t end after installation, we offer a comprehensive solar panel monitoring, operation and maintenance service to ensure your solar panels continue to perform for the duration of their lifetime.
