Expansive roof space, intensive machinery & enormous energy bills – just a few of the reasons why solar panels and sustainable solutions make the perfect business partner for factories and manufacturers.
From small factories and industrial units through to big brand manufacturers like Renishaw & Brabantia – solar PV and other sustainable solutions could reap huge financial benefits for your business.
Rising energy costs, energy security & profitability
Increasingly weighty business overheads are making energy consumption a growing source of concern, particularly within our unstable energy market and with utility prices rising year on year. As a result forward thinking manufacturers are looking closely at both what they pay for their energy and how they use it. Through installing sustainable solutions businesses are able to considerably cut their overheads, improve business operations and increase their bottom line with up to 100% savings on their daytime electricity costs.
Generally speaking the higher the user of energy – the higher the savings and therefore the larger the benefits sought – making the manufacturing sector the perfect case for sustainable solutions.
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)
Sustainability is becoming increasingly important within the supply chain – The government is putting pressure on companies to turn to sustainable solutions and therefore wholesalers & retailers are now considering green credentials when choosing their suppliers. Installing sustainable solutions not only reduces business overheads but has the augmented benefits of increasing your green credentials and creating an effective PR tool.
It’s therefore not uncommon for those at the opposite end of the supplychain – wholesalers and retailers – to look at the actions of manufactures and logistic companies to warrant turning their business to alternative companies with greener credentials. This aside, with manufacturing companies responsible for a huge slice of the energy consumption, improving your own CSR in general by investing in energy technology is a credible step to help saving the environment.
