Advantages of distributed PV installations on industrial rooftops: main, what you need to know
Generally, industrial halls have a relatively high roof-to-floor ratio, facilitating ready deployment of renewable energy generation, such as photovoltaic (PV) systems, on the rooftop. Eco Green Energy prepared a reference list of what benefits solar installations can bring for businesses and why it is common-used nowadays in this area.
Increase corporate income plus add value
Firstly, PV installations are good to install on any free roof to revitalize fixed assets increase corporate income, and add value. The investment recovery period is short and according to the Appraisal Journal, a home’s value increases roughly $20 for every $1 decrease in energy costs. If solar panels save a household $600 a year in electricity bills, that home’s value may increase by $12,000.
Save electricity bills for enterprises
The commonly known advantage is saving electricity bills for enterprises while using solar systems during the daytime. Most of the electricity used by the enterprise is during the peak electricity price period when the peak electricity consumption is 50% more expensive. The photovoltaic power generation system generates electricity during the peak period of the day. It can significantly reduce peak electricity consumption to save the cost of electricity expenses for enterprises. Moreover, it is possible to sell surplus electricity online, which also brings extra income for your business.
Reduce the internal temperature of the factory
In addition, PV installations reduce the internal temperature of the factory, making the work environment comfortable – warm in winter and cool in summer. The roof installed with photovoltaic power generation can cool down by 3~6 °C, reduce the power consumption of air conditioners by about 20%, and save a lot of air conditioner costs for enterprises every year.
Clean energy for everyone
Another benefit is that solar energy equals clean energy. There is no limitation for photovoltaic power generation to the geographical distribution of resources, making roof-distributed power stations safe, reliable, noise-free, and pollution-free.
Suitable to complete the energy-saving targets stipulated by the government
Such rooftop systems are suitable to complete the energy-saving, and emission-reduction targets stipulated by the government, and conform to the national new energy promotion trend. It is also conducive to improving the social image and shaping the enterprise’s social responsibility.
The short time of construction and of energy acquisition
PV installations have a short time of construction and of energy acquisition and are also convenient, and flexible. It is also possible to add the solar array or reduce it arbitrarily according to the increase or decrease of the load to avoid waste. The photovoltaic grid-connected power generation system adopts the access of the nearest user side, no need for long-distance transportation, and the loss of long-distance transmission lines are avoided.
