An increasing number of car dealerships are choosing solar power. With energy one of the largest expenses that auto dealerships must contend with, and costs for energy rising considerably, more and more businesses are seeking ways to lower costs. The price for solar PV systems has declined in recent years, making it a more accessible option for dealerships to take advantage of.
At Geo Green Power, we’re experts in sustainable energy solutions and we can advise your car dealership on the best ways to maximise solar power for your business.
Car dealerships rely on energy to operate, from lighting to tech-enhanced showrooms, and electricity is one of the largest overhead expenses for businesses in this sector. But whether you install solar car ports or choose rooftop solar installations, auto dealerships can benefit from solar power to reduce costs and make the business more profitable overall. Auto dealerships can make use of otherwise unutilised roof space to make it more productive.
The architecture of car dealerships is well-suited to solar power installations, since there are typically unused, obstacle-free roofing for showrooms and offices that can be put to better use with solar panels. There’s no need to modify your commercial space to accommodate the panels, making it a quick switch that offers countless benefits.
It’s also an effective way to boost your brand’s reputation as an environmentally friendly business that is committed to making the swap to cleaner energy. With more consumers interested in electric and hybrid vehicles, choosing renewable energy can help to align with your customers’ values, especially if you install EV chargers on-site to accommodate these customers further.
Most car dealership sites are suitable for roof-mounted solar installations, since there are typically car ports, showrooms and offices that have flat or low-pitched roofs to generate substantial amounts of power. They’re a way to make use of unproductive space, without reducing your square footage in any way. These spaces rarely require planning permission and the maintenance and servicing costs for PV installations are generally low. Not only do solar panels offer protection against rising energy costs, but they are also eco-friendly, with no greenhouse gases released and no impact to natural resources.
