SME’s that own their own offices can benefit from energy bill savings and a second source of income through a self-funded solar PV system. Similarly, corporate landlords that are required to complete mandatory ESOS assessments can consider LED lighting and a free solar PV system as a solution for increasing the energy efficiency of their buildings.
Stay ahead of your ESOS requirements with free solar
If you are a corporate landlord you may decide against large capital investments such as energy technology with most of the benefits – such as reduced energy bills – going to your tenants.
However, a solar PV system can be a solution to increasing the energy efficiency of your office space portfolio which is a requirement of the ESOS assessment for you to at least consider the benefits; even if you don’t decide to implement.
Our recommended solution in this case is to consider a Power Purchase Agreement (subject to eligibility) where you can take advantage of a free solar PV system that is maintained at zero cost for a minimum term of 20 years. With energy efficiency measures in place for your benefit, your tenants will also enjoy reduced energy bills by purchasing the generated electricity at a unit cost lower than their existing energy supplier; making your office a much more attractive proposition for current and future tenants.
