Constructing a new commercial or agricultural building?
If you are planning to construct a new commercial or agricultural building, now is the time to plan the installation of solar PV. By installing solar PV as a part of your new build process, or even when replacing a roof, you will save a considerable amount of money when compared to a retro-fit scenario. Solar PV can reduce your electricity costs by 50 to 70% and gain around a 15% return on investment. Sounds too good to be true? It's not – look at our case studies, see the evidence & talk to our customers!
Solar PV offers...
• Electricity at around 1/3 of the price you currently pay
• Fixed price electricity for 25 years at 4 to 5 pence/unit
• FiT subsidy payments at 4 pence/unit
• Return on investment of 11-16%
• Average payback 6-8 years and cashflow positive in as little as 2 years
• A big reduction in your carbon footprint
• Free fuel for electric vehicles
Rocket Rentals - Mypower customer installs solar PV at new second site and looks forward to
£175,000 of savings and income
Rocket Rentals is a family run business offering plant and machinery hire and sales in Gloucestershire. Due to expansion they outgrew their current premises which led them to build a new commercial property. They knew they wanted to install solar PV again on their new building.
Prior to construction Rocket Rentals contacted to Mypower to share their plans with us. Getting Mypower involved at this early stage meant we could provide advice on points to consider during the design and build process which would benefit Solar PV and help save on installation costs. Details such as electricity connection, the timing of the solar install with existing scaffolding and netting in place as well as design and layout all saved them money.
Simon Tomblin, Managing Director, Rocket Rentals commented, "As we have expanded the business, our power costs have increased. With solar offering cheaper electricity, a good return on investment and the commercial benefits of being a "green" plant hire company, it was not a difficult decision to make. The solar will also really help us towards our ISO 14000 accreditation.
We were very pleased with the first installation Mypower did for us in 2011 and had no qualms in asking them to quote for the industrial solar panels for our new building. The upfront advice received from Mypower was very helpful and their involvement with Western Power Distribution saved us some money. Ben worked with us every step of the way to dovetail the installation in with the erection of the new building, saving us money on access and scaffolding. He was very professional in all that he did, taking control but keeping us fully informed throughout the project and dealing with all the paperwork. The installation team were friendly, helpful and flexible with all going to plan and the deadlines being met."
