International businesses are investing heavily in solar and other renewable energy sources, adopting the use of commercial solar panels to power large commercial, warehousing, and manufacturing premises.
The impact of international corporations adopting commercial solar systems is huge. Apart from ticking boxes on their corporate special responsibility memorandums, they are also having a significant impact on offsetting the metric tonnage of carbon dioxide per year while reaping financial benefits too.
Well-Known International Businesses Using Solar Power
We’ve entered a new era of global accountability which means that big businesses must be socially and environmentally responsible if they hope to build, grow and maintain goodwill amongst their customers. Many well-known international businesses are leading the way in earth-friendly energy solutions to reduce their reliance on fossil fuels and non-renewable energy sources, including:
Many businesses are making the switch to greener energy as the climate and environmental crisis becomes a global concern. Apart from the obvious benefits to the planet, adopting solar panels for commercial premises and other commercial use is a smart financial solution. And it’s not just big businesses taking advantage of the numerous benefits associated with a solar power installation, there are solar panels for small businesses too.
The Benefits of Going Solar
Commercial solar panels are available right across Australia for both large and small-scale businesses providing significant benefits, including:
How much energy is Generated by Commercial Solar Panels?
The amount of energy generated by commercial solar panels depends on a number of factors including:
Solar panels are rated based on the amount of direct current (DC) power they produce under normal conditions. Each panel’s output is determined by the number of cells on the panel. Here is an example for calculating how much energy may be generated by your panels assuming that your area gets approximately 6 hours of direct sunlight per day and you’re installing panels averaging an output of 360W:
6hrs X 360W = 2,160W or just over 2 kWh per day
Thus, the output for your commercial solar system installation would produce around 730kWh of energy per year per panel.
It is recommended that you consult with professional and reputable solar power specialists regarding your commercial solar panel needs. They can advise you on how many panels you would need to suit your business requirements and advise you on how much surface area would be needed to accommodate such a number.
