Electricity costs constitute a significant share in overall operating costs for a commercial establishment. It’s a given that most modern offices have a large number of computers & other electronic devices, centralized HVAC systems, etc., that have to run continuously for general day to day operations resulting in high electricity costs. This cost increases exponentially with increase in size of building and manpower. Rooftop solar plants in recent times have emerged as the ideal solution to reduce expenditure in electricity bills by as much as 70%.
Need For Solar Energy
The biggest incentive for installing a rooftop solar plant is the economic aspect. Solar energy has emerged as one of the most promising and widely accepted renewable energy sources today. Solar plants can provide free, uninterrupted electricity for the years together while at the same time contribute towards a greener environment.
Rooftop solar plants are also easy to install and require minimal maintenance. The electricity produced in excess can be sold to the grid through a net-metering facility directly impacting the existing electricity bills. With depleting fossil fuel reserves, accelerated environmental degradation and pressure on the power generation infrastructure, the government has taken various steps in the form of subsidies to accelerate adoption of solar energy.
