Commercial PV Solutions

There are many Sectors that can financially benefit from
a Commercial PV Solution including :

  • Agriculture
  • Manufacturing
  • Construction
  • Retail
  • Transport & Logistics
  • Offices
  • Schools & the Education Sector

All of these sectors have to cope with large electricity bills, by investing in a Solar PV solution your electricity bills could be reduced by 50% per annum.

Where businesses operate in daylight hours they can utilise all of the energy created by the Solar PV System and therefore maximise the financial return which in turn reduces the overall payback for the system.

Apart from reduced electricity bills businesses benefit from a 20 Year Index Linked Government backed Feed In Tariff Payment scheme.

The Carbon Budget challenge to reduce UK emissions

The Climate Change Act established a target for the UK to reduce its emissions by at least 80% from 1990 levels by 2050. This target represents an consistent with limiting global temperature rise to as little as possible above 2°C

To ensure that regular progress is made towards this long-term target, the Act also established a system of five-yearly carbon budgets, to serve as stepping stones on the way.

The first four carbon budgets, leading to 2027, have been set in law. The UK is currently in the second carbon budget period (2013-17). Meeting the fourth carbon budget (2023-27) will require that emissions be reduced by 50% on 1990 levels in 2025.

The Committee will publish its advice to government on the fifth carbon budget in December 2015, covering the period 2028-2032, as required under Section 4 of the Climate Change Act. The government will propose draft legislation for the fifth budget in 2016.

Basis for levels of carbon budgets

In providing its advice to Government on the level of carbon budgets the CCC uses criteria set out in the Climate Change Act. It has assessed, by sector, what can be achieved to reduce emissions at least cost, taking account of available technologies and government policy and recommended that:

  • energy efficiency improvements are a cost effective way to contribute to emission reductions whilst saving money for individuals and business;
  • fostering innovation in technology, although having some cost in the short term, will contribute substantially to emissions reductions and prove economical in future years
  • Other measures with a cost below the Government’s projected carbon price are available and should be taken as a cost effective option on the path to the long-term target.

The budgets must also be consistent with UK obligations towards EU targets, and as a contribution to required global emission reductions.
