What are common reservations you hear when speaking to clients about Solar for their business? How do you respond to these reservations?

The first concern often centres around Capital and Cash Flow. To address this, we help guide you with various financing options, including loans, hire purchase agreements, and power purchase agreements (PPA), allowing businesses to adopt solar with manageable financial arrangements. 


Another reservation is regarding the duration they’ll be in the premises. We reassure clients that solar installations add value to their property and increase its sustainability, making it less likely for them to move, while also ensuring a quick payback period, enabling them to enjoy the benefits before potentially relocating.


The involvement of the Landlord in leased buildings is another point of concern. We inform clients that sometimes landlords are open to financially supporting the solar project, recognising its potential to enhance the building’s longevity and appeal to future tenants. Clients are also cautious about the Price of energy coming down in the future. We emphasise that despite market volatility, adopting solar helps businesses move away from grid reliance, offering stable and guaranteed power prices while potentially earning income from exporting excess electricity.


Regarding energy consumption, low energy consumers worry that solar may not benefit them enough, whereas high energy consumers may fear they won’t have enough space to offset a significant portion of their usage. We tailor our solutions to address these concerns, explaining that for low energy consumers, solar can eliminate the need for grid reliance entirely, potentially creating additional cash flow through exporting surplus energy. On the other hand, for high energy consumers, solar adoption makes their business more sustainable, aligns with green targets, and provides a buffer against market fluctuations, ultimately reducing long-term expenses and dependence on the grid. With these insights and personalised solutions, we strive to dispel reservations and help businesses unlock the full potential of solar energy for a brighter and more sustainable future.
