The commercial sector
The Government incentives are continually driving the non-domestic sector to invest in renewable energy. There are many ways green energy can benefit your commercial property.
BritishEco works together with commercial organisations to help them develop a cost effective plan to incorporate renewable energy systems where there is a clear commercial case to do so. We will work closely with you to look at all the possible options and help you through the process of selection, planning permission, system design and the installation.
Solar photovoltaic (PV) systems are a fantastic way to lower your properties electricity bills by generating electricity from the sun. The Feed-In Tariffs available for PV systems mean you could also earn a very high return on investment per year for your commercial premises.
Wind turbines are also another way to generate electricity for your premises. As they are heavily subsidised with tariffs, the payback period can be as little as 3 years for non-domestic properties, they are a sound investment which allows organisations to reduce their reliance on erratic energy prices.
Biomass boilers are used to produce space heating and hot water for your property. As a large proportion of UK energy bills is spent on heating and hot water, biomass systems offer property owners a way to lower these bills from a carbon neutral and highly efficient source.
Solar thermal panels use energy from the sun for heating your water and your property. You will be reducing your reliance on expensive fossil fuels such as gas or oil and they can usually work with the existing cylinder.
Heat pumps also provide space heating and hot water for your property. They can operate in freezing conditions and are ideally suited to the UK climate. Heat pumps save money on bills and will help the environment.
Rainwater harvesting units can typically provide 50% of your water requirements, meaning they can contribute significantly to lowering the water bills of the organisation.
