Solar PV panels installed by Mypower are awarding winning systems which help businesses reduce their electricity bills by 65%. Mypower has a proven track record of providing energy solutions in Swindon, Chippenham and throughout the whole county of Wilshire which deliver real benefits and savings.
With rising electricity bills year-on-year and experts predicting commercial energy costs will increase by at least 33% over the next 5 years, now is the time to consider Solar PV as an alternative, cheaper energy source. Solar PV installations costs have reduced significantly since 2012 which means return on investment following a solar installation from Mypower is now 14-18%. Solar PV generated electricity typically costs 4-5p per unit which compares to traditional grid supplied electricity rates between 13-15p per unit.
So why are companies installing Solar PV…
It makes commercial sense. Solar PV generated electricity typically costs 4-5p/kWh and is effectively fixed, compared to grid supplied electricity at rates of between 13-15p/kWh, which is likely to continue to rise every year.
Once installed, Solar PV requires minimal maintenance as it has no moving parts.
Solar PV technology is tried and tested in the UK with robust data supporting predictions.
Future proofing – The age of the Electric Vehicle (EV) is almost upon us (even Jeremy Clarkson announced that the Tesla Model X EV was ‘fabulous’), they’re preparing their businesses to fuel their fleets of EVs or plug-in hybrids on clean energy.
It is a clean and sustainable source of energy.
Solar PV is for all sizes of businesses. Good roof space provided by commercial properties make solar a sensible investment. An average sized commercial property of an SME can accommodate a 50kW system, enough to generate 49,000kWh of electricity every year. It offers £7,000 savings in the first year and a 17% ROI with a sub 6 year pay back. It isn’t just for south-facing roofs either.
“Investigating the right supplier takes time which can be hard to find and having decided to commit our business to Mypower, the whole job was taken off our hands. Mypower managed the scheme completely and efficiently, so that we could get on with our business. It was all very fuss free and well managed. The panels are hardly visible on the new building and don’t spoil the look of any of the older buildings, a very important factor for Sheppy’s.”
Louisa Sheppy, Sheppy's Cider
"Our PV array not only makes financial sense but also differentiates us in the marketplace extracting further commercial value from the initiative. Credit must go to the whole team at Mypower who calmly delivered the project against the inevitable FiT revision deadline. This investment not only supports our zero carbon operation goals but also demonstrates the scale of our commitment to a move to a sustainable economy.
Currently my Tesla is the only vehicle that runs on electricity but as we electrify more of our distribution fleet we are likely to be back for an extension to the installation to cover the flat roof over the offices".
Toby Robins, Sustainable Development Director, Wiles Greenworld
