The cost of solar panels always has been – and probably always will be – one of the most influential factors for businesses deciding whether or not to buy them. However, it’s worth noting that the price of them has actually plummeted in recent years, and now they’re even more affordable than they used to […]
Amongst the ever-increasing concerns about climate – concerns which have only been intensified by the recent heatwave – the subjects surrounding clean energy are becoming more significant than ever here in the UK.

Market instability is part of the reason for the steadily rising energy prices, but commercial solar can still help businesses to achieve energy security.
Cost savings, energy security, and enhanced green credentials are just a few of the reasons commonly cited by commercial businesses to explain why they’ve chosen solar panels to fulfil their energy requirements. What’s more, customers can even sidestep the issue of upfront costs with a Power Purchase Agreement, which is often particularly helpful for small […]
