Solar Power Benefits For Businesses

Innovative Energy Solutions for Iowa Businesses From Top Solar Installers

Solar power is quickly becoming a sought-after resource for business owners.   Its availability, wide range of uses, and security can help you as a business owner cut down on overhead costs that older resources, like gas and coal, will never be free from.

This is because solar power, as clean energy, is also known as a “distributive power generation technology.”  Distributive power, unlike past methods of generation, is power generated at the point of energy consumption.  This makes it a superior technology that can help reduce utility needs during peak hour electricity consumption.

ECG Solar™ has been Iowa’s Premier Solar Provider™ since its founding in 2008.  We carry some of the finest solar panels and energy storage systems available, like PV and ACPV systems made by Panasonic™, Kohler™ standby generators, Enphase™ battery storage systems, and more. 

Our company firmly believes that solar conversion will help home and business owners across Iowa cut down on their energy costs and guarantee some form of independence from the sudden fluctuations of the commercial power grid.   Get in touch with us today via phone, email, the submissions forms on our website, or in-person at our offices, and receive superior solar services from Iowa’s Premier Solar Provider™.

The 3 Main Benefits From Solar Conversion

1. Energy Independence From The Grid

Standard electrical power is a commodity.  This means a business’s electrical supply is determined by the grid, which is in turn influenced by the ups and downs of the market.   When the market is holding steady, and bills are predictable, this is okay; but if there’s a sudden dip and bills increase, that can put business owners under unfair and unrelenting financial pressures. 

Solar power frees business owners from the restrictive burden of being bound to the grid and offers a fixed operating cost for decades to come.  This doesn’t just come with the benefit of being free from fluctuating energy bills; it also means that, in the event of an outage or grid failure, businesses with solar panels and battery storage will be able to weather the storm and maintain operations while others wait for the lights to come on.

2. Save On Your Energy Bill

Businesses require a consistent energy supply, and depending on your industry, you might use electric power for more than just keeping the office lit.  You may need to power electric heating and cooling systems, or have vital machinery or equipment powered by electricity.  All that power is a running cost, so the challenge becomes reducing your power overhead.

The switch to solar power can be a massive step in that reduction.  According to reports, the average business can reduce its electrical overhead by three-quarters with the adoption of solar power.

So the question then becomes how much you will plan to depend on the grid. Total solar conversion with a generator backup and/or battery storage can guarantee complete independence. However, you’ll still be grid-tied for nighttime and other additional support unless you opt for such a system.  Regardless, your overhead costs will drop with any kind of solar conversion, and you and your company will continually benefit from this substantial saving.

3. A Lower Carbon Footprint

Unlike traditional energy sources, such as gas and coal, solar energy is renewable, clean, and sustainable.  This means solar power is a resource that has a relatively infinite capacity for usage.   

Such factors can be appealing for many businesses for several reasons.   One of the primary motivations is that being “green” can help companies make environmentally friendly decisions that will positively affect their overhead in the long term.  As an added advantage, many customers now gravitate towards businesses that are invested in sustainable “green” efforts and programs.  

Lastly, there are concrete examples of both the environmental and financial benefits businesses can reap from a solar switch.  For instance, after three years of solar conversion, the CO2 offset of one 105KW system is equal to 11,004 trees and 49,522 gallons of gas saved.
