Benefits of Solar Power for Business
Switching your business over to solar power is one of the smartest investments you can make. Solar power not only provides benefits for the company itself but also for the environment and the planet as a whole.
Lower Utility Bills
Depending on the size of the system you install, solar panels can reduce or eliminate your company's utility bills. Power from the sun is completely free, meaning that your solar system will pay for itself over time. Since solar power places no demand on the power grid, it helps keep regular energy costs down for everyone else. The low maintenance demands of solar panels plus warranties that cover 25 to 40 years keep costs low in the long term.
Businesses that install solar power systems are eligible to receive tax breaks and other incentives. The government may offer a percent back or a tax credit for choosing an alternative energy source. Some power companies offer rebates as well. If you produce more electricity than you need, you can sell it back to the power company at the wholesale price. All of these breaks help to offset the initial cost of the system, allowing your business to enjoy green energy without taking a big chunk out of operating costs.
Using solar power means your business doesn't have to rely on the main power grid to stay running. Should inclement weather knock out local power, you can keep on going without losing time or money. This is especially important in industries that center around food such as grocery stores, restaurants, cafes and coffee shops where prolonged power outages can mean massive loss of perishable inventory. In addition, not being beholden to commercial power means no reliance on foreign oil or any other kind of fossil fuel.
Cleaner, Greener Power
Going green is good for business in more ways than one. Solar power saves money and attracts customers who appreciate the fact that you're using a clean power source. Mention solar power use in your marketing materials and you're likely to see a boost in business and overall sales. With all the "greenwashing" out there, being a business that truly subscribes to the ethics of green power adds integrity to your image. Plus, since you are using less fossil fuel, you're helping to slow the depletion of these precious resources as well as reducing the amount of pollution associated with the operation of your business.
