Factories, warehouses and workshops often have significant roof space, and high energy usage, making them ideal locations for solar panels. Over the past few years, more and more businesses have realised the potential to harness free renewable energy simply by adding solar panels to their roofs. Businesses operating in factories and warehouses are bringing their energy costs down by producing their own free electricity on-site.
Whether you are looking to cut costs, reduce your carbon footprint or secure your future energy supply, Geo Green Power offer expert commercial solar installations with proven high yielding solar panels.
Why Harness Solar Energy For Your Factory Roof?
The roofs of factories are often the ideal place to install solar panels. As factories are energy-intensive buildings, installing a solar PV system on the roof of a factory ensures free power can be generated to run everything underneath it. While reducing energy costs, a solar PV installation has the added benefit of demonstrating Corporate Social Responsibility thanks to its environmental credentials.
What Are the Benefits of Solar PV for Warehouses?
As energy efficiency rises to the top of the agenda for warehouse and logistics firms, more and more are seeing the benefits of solar PV. Installing solar PV on warehouse roofs means generating free electricity for the warehouse and adjacent buildings, such as offices.
Warehouse and logistics firms can significantly reduce their energy bills with a solar PV system. Energy bills are typically responsible for around 15% of operating costs in a warehouse facility, due to temperature control systems and lighting. By adding solar panels, which generate their own free electricity, these energy bills can be substantially reduced.

Will I have to get planning permission?
Not in the vast majority of cases. However, if you want your system ground mounted, if your property is part of a world heritage site, or is listed, then planning permission would likely have to be sought in advance. We would advise when this was the case, and while you would have to seek such permission we will of course provide full assistance in completing applications and supplying any information requested to ensure the process is as quick and easy as possible.
