In many ways, January is quite a strange time of year – a month for both reflection and ambition. Reflection in terms of looking back on the year that’s just gone, and ambition in terms of looking forward to the year ahead. And if you’ve got plans for your business in next twelve months, then transforming your energy supply with commercial solar panels should definitely be one of them. Here are some of the main reasons why!
Commercial solar panels save on costs, and give you peace of mind
There are a lot of words you could use to describe the state of world affairs in the past few years. Major events like the pandemic and the Russian invasion of Ukraine have had countless far-reaching implications, and they’ve had a particularly dramatic effect on energy prices, which have soared and peaked at a dizzying rate.
That means the costs for businesses have been accordingly unpredictable, and resulted in their fair share of stress for owners. And while we might hope that this year will be the one where things settle down a bit, realistically there’s no guarantee that will happen.
That’s where commercial solar panels can provide such tangible benefits, especially in today’s uncertain times. Having solar panels installed on your premises gives you access to a cheap, stable supply of electricity, and one that will remain insulated from the many peaks and troughs of market rates. That means you save money, and get to enjoy peace of mind while you’re doing it.
Customers want sustainability
To be honest, that already seems to be the headline in 2023. The growing climate crisis has been an item on the public’s agenda for years, and it’s more true now than ever before. It seems to be a particular concern in the UK. For evidence you need to look no further than a recent Nielsen IQ study, which says that 61% of UK customers (almost two thirds) feel that sustainability is more important to them now than it was two years ago.
It also found that 55% of UK consumers say that living sustainably is important for society, and that they try to make sustainable choices when they can. Crucially, the study also reported that 3 in 4 consumers (76%) want companies to take the initiative to reduce their environmental footprint.
One of the most important things to remember is that although the study is framed in terms of everyday consumers, the responses aren’t just the voices of your customers. They’re also those of your shareholders, investors, and potential business partners. All of whom will be judging your business against your competitors to find out how committed you really are to your green goals for 2023. Commercial solar panels are a physical, tangible demonstration of your commitment.
