Manufacturing businesses often have large roof spaces that go largely unused, providing the perfect setting for solar panels. 

Solar PV provides manufacturing companies with a potent array of advantages. Some of the most crucial ones (often cited to us by our own manufacturing customers as reasons to invest) include: reduced bills, significant carbon savings, meeting ISO and CSR commitments, securing their position in the supply chain, and adding value to the property. 

The current economic climate has also recently prompted a fresh influx of manufacturing companies looking for reliable ways to cut their costs amidst soaring energy bills – especially since the economic forecast looks similarly unpredictable in the foreseeable future.

Industrial solar panels save costs and improve your bottom line

Put simply, a solar PV system puts you back in control of your energy.

It gives your manufacturing business the means to generate your own energy on-site, liberating you from reliance on the National Grid, and the steadily rising national prices. That helps you cut your overheads, making a noticeable impact on your bottom line.

In addition to their immediate benefits, industrial solar panels can also provide long-term benefits and peace of mind too. The cost of solar panels has consistently become cheaper almost year-on-year, while global energy prices have been repeatedly rocked by a series of catastrophes, such as the Covid-19 pandemic. Adopting industrial solar panels protects your business from future economic shocks, allowing you to enjoy steady, affordable energy prices.



As a manufacturing business, growing numbers of your customers now expect you to be able to demonstrate your green credentials – and increasingly, the same is starting to become true of partners and suppliers too.

Research has consistently shown that businesses and consumers are now making key judgements on whether or not to deal with a company based on its climate record.

So, if you’re not taking action on climate, you could be losing business.

That’s where industrial solar panels can help. serving as a tangible demonstration of your commitment to sustainability goals. For the best results, they should form the cornerstone of a broader sustainability strategy towards achieving Net Zero – but even on their own, they can easily help you get the edge over your competitors.
