If you’ve been on the fence and still holding out to call us for a solar battery installation, then this blog is for you. As the premier providers of commercial solar systems in Australia, we know a thing or two about the doubts that many people have about the technology and its utility in a business context – and we are here to alleviate them.
Admittedly the cost of emerging technologies has a track record of being a little expensive in their early days. These days solar battery installation and maintenance is a fraction of what it used to cost in its initial release. Not only is it becoming more affordable than ever to go renewable, but constant innovation has also improved efficiency and scalability of the technology making it even more worthwhile for businesses and enterprises.
So, how does a solar battery storage system work FOR a business?
Read on to find out.
How Any Solar Battery Storage System Works For Your Business
The financial viability of a modern solar battery storage system speaks for itself in a few distinct ways. The first and foremost being the detached dependence from less efficient and costlier forms of energy, which are rising with each quarter and putting a strain on businesses and homeowners alike.
Having a reliable and renewable energy source will eventually become a vital asset for the bottom line of any business once the upfront costs are covered. Let’s talk about the elephant in the room, the initial upfront cost for the solar battery installation. The initial costs for the implementation will appear to be steep comparatively, however, over the long-term the return on investment will exponentially increase as dependence on grid power decreases.
On top of the energy savings, there are a number of retailers who offer feed-in tariffs. Think of it as a monetary kickback for giving some of your excess power to the grid. While the rates will vary from retailer to retailer, it’s not often you find a power setup that actually pays YOU for generating energy.
Self-sufficiency is a major component for any business and having a renewable setup for the business is instrumental in giving any business an extra safety net and sense of self-sustenance.
Having a solar battery storage system can also be beneficial for the business in the events of sudden power loss like a blackout or weather emergency. A self-sustaining energy source means vital information and processes are not lost and beholden to the electricity grid.
Reputation counts for a lot these days, especially in the business world. The trend towards a renewable and greener future is not only good for the planet, but also great for business. Casting aside the rebates and claims that can be made for a business that is self-sustaining or embracing renewable technologies, being a business that can espouse a smaller carbon footprint will ultimately win the public over than competitors that are not as forward thinking.
The Different Types of Solar Battery Storage Systems
While there are admittedly a number of interesting new technologies being developed in the sector, the general market at the moment is dominated by 4 different types of solar battery storage systems.
- Nickel Cadmium
- Nickel-Metal Hydride
While each of these types is sufficient in their own right, we cannot look passed the trusted Lithium-Ion which remains the industry standard and most popular choice for consumers and businesses. The material has a high energy density, good charge retention, is safe for most applicable circumstances, and has the best performance ration to its weight.
At 13Kuga, we’re committed to providing professional and reliable services for businesses across the country. We’ve successfully implemented over 5000 commercial solar systems over the last 5 years and aim to continue onward as the renewable revolution continues.
