Solar panel supply, installation & maintenance for retail and wholesale premises
According to research by the Office of National Statistics, the retail sector is the UK’s fifth highest fossil fuel consuming industry, with a rate outpacing that of the construction sector. Solar panels provide an effective, reliable way for retail businesses to lower their emissions, while also delivering significant cost savings.
That’s where we can help here at Low Carbon. With decades of experience behind us, we can help you transform the energy supply of your retail business with a bespoke installation that’s tailored to your requirements and energy profile.
What’s more, large commercial spaces like shopping centres often have expansive roof spaces that serve as the perfect environment for solar panel installations. This can allow almost all businesses within to benefit, resulting in significant savings for brick and mortar stores.
Why use solar panels for your retail business?
Cost savings are undoubtably one of the most powerful reasons to invest in solar power solutions.
Generating your own energy on-site can go a long way to reducing your reliance on the National Grid, and thus your overall energy costs. (Research from the Carbon Trust found that a 20% cut in energy costs for retailers can ultimately represent the same bottom-line benefit as a 5% increase in sales.)
Solar panels can also help you achieve a reduced carbon footprint and meet your sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility objectives, which can help to attract new customers from an increasingly environmentally-conscious public.
