As Commercial Solar & Battery installers in Swadlincote we are pleased to answer some of the most frequently asked questions businesses in Derbyshire have when it comes to renewable energy & the savings you can make.

Spot On Electrical provide Solar and battery supply and installation services across the Midlands.

What are the benefits of solar for my business?

The main reason for solar installations on commercial properties is to save money, but there are also added benefits such as the kudos and improved company image. If coupled with a battery then there’s also the possibility of having emergency backup power in the event of a power cut. It will also help your business regain control of it’s energy costs.

How much can my business save by installing solar?

Typically, this varies from business to business, however, the benefits of solar are even greater for a commercial property than they are a domestic property. This is due to how most businesses, schools and organisations use their energy, which is typically during daylight hours. 

Do Businesses qualify for Zero VAT for Solar and batteries?

No, however, if you are VAT registered business, you will able offset the VAT at your next VAT return. So it can be a good idea to purchase solar when you are expecting a big VAT bill 😉

Are there solar grants available for businesses? 

We carry out commercial solar installation in Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire, Staffordshire, Warwickshire and the West Midlands, so we keep an eye out for current schemes in these areas. At present there are no grants available but that doesn’t mean it isn’t worth having solar installed. 

How long will it take to payback the cost of solar for my business? 

Typically, we are seeing that commercial properties can see their returns twice as fast as domestic properties! Anything from 2 to 5 years for the installation to be repaid. 

Can I still install solar on my rental commercial property? 

Absolutely, most of our commercial solar installations in Swadlincote are rental units. You just need the permission of your landlord, who is very unlikely to object! In-fact a few of our commercial solar customers have had contributions from their landlord towards the solar installation as it increases the value of their property.
