Modern factories and warehouses can be thousands of square kilometres. Over the past few years, more and more business have seen the potential to harness free renewable energy simply by adding solar panels to their factory roofs. It is more than likely that you have seen several instances businesses installing panels onto their roofs in your area. The current surge in interest in Solar Energy production on Factory roofs has been as a result of the “Feed In Tariff” that pays for all electricity generated whether used or not, as well as consumers putting more pressure on comapnies to do their bit for the environment.
The Feed In Tariff Explained
The Feed In Tariff is indexed linked to RPI, guaranteed in law for 20 years, and paid by the electricity companies. The tariff levels set mean that on average the return on investment is around 10-12% per annum. Larger scale installations can attract significant cost savings so the returns on larger investments are excellent.
