Solar and Battery Storage

Use the power of the sun to power your business

The 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 supplies looks far from secure.

Being able to harness energy from the sun allows you to generate electricity on site. That means, every day, you could be drawing on a natural – and completely sustainable - resource to power your business.

By combining Solar with a Battery Storage solution you can maximize your energy strategy with flexibility of energy use and add business resilience. Solar can even help you unlock value from unused assets like your roof, parking lot or property to create an additional revenue stream.

What is Solar?

Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Systems are a renewable source of generation that work by absorbing sunlight and converting it into electricity. Solar panels are either mounted on the roof of a building or on the ground, either on site or remotely – in a solar field.

The power generated can be used directly on site, stored in a battery system for later use or, in some cases, fed back into the grid to create an additional revenue stream. It is 100% sustainable, reliable, and cost-effective – and ideal for businesses that want to reduce both energy costs and carbon emissions.

The benefits to your business

  • Generate a significant percentage of your own electricity
  • Reduce reliance on grid energy
  • Store excess electricity and use it when electricity costs are at their highest to help reduce operational costs
  • Completely renewable source of generation
  • Generate energy without creating CO2 or pollutants as traditional energy sources do
