Solar and Storage
Save money on your electricity supply and demand spend by installing Solar plus Storage.
Energy costs and demand charges directly impact your bottom line
According to the United States Energy Information Administration (EIA), total world energy consumption is expected to rise 28% by 2040. Add in an aging grid infrastructure and rising fuel costs and the future of traditional energy supply looks very expensive.
Additionally, prices for grid electricity are unpredictable and can vary widely from month to month – making forecasting operating expenses difficult – and demand charges to run your business during peak times can constitute greater than 50% of your energy bill. We helped Embrace Home Loans reduce their energy costs by 69% when we installed a solar photovoltaic (PV) system on their roof – by installing solar, they are generating electricity at a price substantially lower than from their local energy provider.
Solar is a truly sustainable energy solution
Every day, you could be drawing on a natural and sustainable resource to power your business and reduce reliance on the grid. A solar PV system enables you to generate your own electricity onsite by converting the power of the sun into 100% renewable electricity, helping you meet your corporate sustainability goals. As solar power does not have any pollutants or carbon emissions, you will significantly reduce your impact on the environment.
Together, Solar and Storage work together to save you significantly more money
Combining Solar and Storage results in an integrated solution providing relief from ever-increasing demand charges and the opportunity to monetize your energy. The addition of storage provides flexibility and reduces energy spend when it is at its most expensive during peak hours.
- Solar saves you money on your kWh energy charges
- Storage saves you money on your kW demand charges
Solar power unlocks value from your roof or parking lot
Solar PV systems are designed to generate power using energy from the sun, reducing your operating expenses and carbon footprint. Solar power can even unlock value from unused assets like your roof or parking lot to create an additional revenue stream, which Noor-UL-Iman School realized firsthand when they installed a carport solar PV system that utilized their parking lot to its full potential – providing protection for employee vehicles and LED lighting for safety measures at night – and reduced their electricity costs by 86%.
What is Solar and Storage?
Solar power is a renewable source of generation that works by absorbing sunlight and converting it into electricity. Solar PV panels are mounted on the roof of a building, on a carport, or on the ground (such as in a field).
The power generated can be used directly onsite, stored for later use to lower energy costs during peak times or, in some cases, fed back into the grid to create an additional revenue stream. It is 100% sustainable, reliable, and cost-effective – ideal for businesses that want to reduce both energy costs and carbon emissions.
