Think solar panels for business if you have big energy requirements

Friday 15 January 2016


It was frantic, but we did it. Yesterday marked the final day to submit information in order for our latest PV solar installation to receive the old Feed In Tariff rate of 12.03p/kWh. The new tariff for domestic scale installations comes into force on 8th February for PV solar systems under 10kw.

Run By The Sun have been designing, installing and maintaining PV solar systems for over 20 years and there has always been a media storm around any drop in the Feed In Tariff, predicting the industry’s demise. The Feed In Tariff was once hitting the dizzy heights of 40p and despite the new tariff being merely a tenth of that figure, we’re still here helping forward-thinking domestic and commercial clients to realise their creative vision.

Forgetting about where we’ve been and to some extent where the industry is heading, Feed In Tariff changes and other things which just get in the way; when you get down to the figures solar energy is still an attractive proposition for homeowners and business owners alike. 

PV solar for business in a nutshell

If you’re a business and own your property or commercial premises rather than lease, solar energy really does make financial sense.  You may have a car garage or retail premise with the need to showcase your products 24 hours a day, a hotel or even a property that is both your home and your business all in one!  The one thing that unites all of these types businesses is that they all have big power requirements.

Investing in solar energy could save you 50% on your electricity bill and provide you with a regular income from the Feed In Tariff and Export Tariff.  Depending on the size of the PV solar array and your requirements, your investment could be paid in as little as 6 years.
