Invest in your own Electricity Generation in time for the Summer
Last summer, the owners of solar panels enjoyed a bumper ‘crop’ of clean electricity and with power prices rising this year and the coming end of Feed in Tariffs to new entrants in March now is a good time to look at how this technology would work for your business.
Several Worcestershire businesses have already installed solar photo-voltaic panel systems supported by Low Carbon Opportunities Programme grant funding that ranges from £5,000 to £100,000 and covers up to 45% of project costs.
Simple paybacks work out at 6 – 7 years with the asset then producing ‘free’ electricity for an expected life of 20-25 years.
Wayne Sambridge, a Director at First Service Frozen Foods who have benefited from the installation of a 24kW roof mounted system supported by a £9,700 grant said:
“The Low Carbon Opportunities Program is our fourth grant through Worcestershire County Council and was the easiest to apply for. Applying for the grant really couldn’t have been any easier”
