Companies in all sectors can benefit from investing in this type of project. Not only by saving money, by installing solar panels, but companies contribute to a cleaner world, where new habits will serve to form more eco-conscious teams.
A business can take advantage of the enormous benefits of self-consumption energy. And we are not just talking about the lower cost of electricity. Self-consumption is increasingly demanded by both companies and individuals to cope with rising electricity prices. The energy crisis we are experiencing has highlighted the need for self-consumption. Nowadays, self-consumption has become the safest and most reliable way to get energy.
What are the benefits of self-consumption in companies? We explain them in detail.
What is self-consumption?
When we talk about self-consumption we refer to producing or managing what we use or take ourselves, whether it is food, energy, water, etc. This practice can be carried out by individuals, families, companies and organizations of all kinds, including governments.
Photovoltaic self-consumption means producing your own energy without depending on energy companies by using solar panels, although this will depend on each territory and geographical conditions. However, each case must be checked and will depend on issues such as location, materials used, dimensions, etc.
Solar energy self-consumption brings many benefits that have a positive impact on the environment and your business.
You should know that:
- Self-consumption can reduce electricity costs by up to 70%.
- Solar panels installation is not complicated and there are already many companies offering this service to both private homes and industries.
- Self-consumption can also be profitable; it allows you to accumulate your extra energy or pour it into the grid and make a profit.
Benefits of self-consumption
- It is a very profitable investment
The first benefit is obvious. It is possible to make a good investment in self-consumption by planning and crunching the numbers. The benefits and costs of self-consumption are clear from the start.
- Saving on electricity consumption from the grid
Investing in solar panels means joining self-consumption, means using directly the energy we produce, and not the one coming from the electrical grid. By using this system, it is possible to reduce electricity costs by between 50% and 70%.
- It’s a value investment
Although investing in solar panels may seem like a huge expense, in the end, it becomes a highly profitable investment. Homes with solar panel systems are sold 5% more expensive than homes with other types of systems, and at least 80% of buyers, energy efficiency become one of the most important factors when choosing a property.
In the case of companies, profitability becomes visible with consumer confidence in the brand, 8 out of 10 people have changed their purchasing preferences based on social responsibility or environmental impact, and so green companies improve their image and positioning in the market.
- Clean and inexhaustible energy
Solar energy is clean and sustainable, so by installing solar panels we reduce our carbon footprint by not generating greenhouse gases.
Being an energy that comes from the sun, it is a renewable and abundant source. All this leads to great savings.
- Commitment to the environment and your employees
Governments have competence over the energy market and environmental care, but the individual efforts of individuals and companies are fundamental for contributing to the transition to environmentally friendly energies.
With the self-consumption of electricity, the company demonstrates its commitment to the environment. Business ethics make us key players in the fight against climate change and the improvement of the planet.
At the end of the day, a large part of energy consumption is made by businesses and industries. We must be at the top when it comes to responsible consumption.
This of course, motivates employees who are looking to develop their careers in environmentally-conscious companies.
A better environment and greater satisfaction increase worker productivity. This produces a benefit in all dimensions of the company.
