With their power output (and therefore energy costs) often highly dependent on the number of current guests, energy efficiency is a constant priority for hotels. Since seasonal weather and the time of year can have a big impact on numbers of guests, and therefore energy expenditure, solar panels are brilliant solutions to offset the costs. They offer a steady, sustainable form of energy that lowers the cost of bills and can help hotels make great savings on even the most energy intensive processes.
Solar panels also cut out the harmful carbon emissions often produced by older, more traditional fossil fuels. Our engineers are only too happy to advise you on the best ways you can make savings for your accommodation, and will deliver a tailored solution that suits your needs.
Like most, David and Johanna, franchisees of their business, wanted to make the most of their opportunity and maximise their profits. As their business was also heavily reliant on guests...
Whether you’re a single site business or a multi-site hotel group, a self-funded solar PV system is a great idea. It will help you to save money on one of your biggest bills – electricity, and give you the opportunity for a second income stream via the Government’s feed-in tariff.
If you’re part of a larger multi-site group, you may also be able to benefit from free solar, through a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA). If successful, you’ll have a free solar PV system installed and maintained for 20-40 years. Benefits include zero initial costs and reduced electricity costs from then on, as you purchase your generated electricity at an extremely affordable pre-agreed rate.
For the ultimate in cutting-edge solutions, why not pair your solar panels with our other renewable energy solutions? LED Lighting and Infrared Heating can save you thousands too.
"There was really no other option than solar PV. Not only does it help us meet all our financial targets, it also gives us peace of mind that we’re doing something great for the environment."Joanna and David, Franchisees, Bellingham Camping and Caravan Club
