Like all businesses the distribution sector has been hard hit by increases in energy costs.
Warehouse roofs are a valuable asset that can generate returns in excess of 16%. Government guaranteed and inflation proofed revenues are available for the entire 20 year life of a solar PV installation on warehouse and distribution centre roofs. Most roofs are suitable and even a modest warehouse could be generating £50,000 in income and savings per year.
Benefits include substantial savings on on-site energy use; the generation of cheap electricity and reduction in carbon foot prints and associated carbon taxes.
A typical roof may support a 260kW system generating £960,000 of lifetime savings and income.
