Check us out on the Local Energy Scotland Site
Local Energy Scotland is the organisation that manages CARES – the Scottish Government’s Community and Renewable Energy Scheme.
They offer a range of financial support to local energy projects looking to help Scotland switch to renewable energy. The Scottish Government’s Scottish Energy Strategy sets its vision for the future energy system in Scotland, and has set a target for Scotland to generate 2GW of locally owned energy by 2030. So the more that Local Energy Scotland can help with green endeavours, the better.
And we are delighted to be listed on the LocalEnergy.scot website. As a MCS Certified Contractor (Certification number NIC5917) we are always looking for ways that we can assist businesses that want to move away from carbon intense energy generation (ie. coal power plants) and take their energy demands into their own hands by having solar panels installed to their business address.
Solar panel installation is one of the easiest ways to go green. And the benefits are not limited to simply helping the planet. There are REAL cost savings to be made by switching to solar panels. The efficiency of solar panels has increased since the technology was first developed, allowing them to generate more power from the same amount of daylight. This technological progress helps offset the challenges posed by Scotland’s climate. Additionally, battery storage systems have become more accessible and affordable, enabling businesses to store excess energy generated during sunny periods for use during darker days and during night time. So despite the challenging weather conditions in Scotland, advancements in solar panel technology, supportive government policies, and the growing urgency to combat climate change have made solar panels a viable and beneficial option for businesses looking to take control of their energy costs. By generating power from solar panels and storing the excess energy for use later (or even sell it back to the national grid), businesses can take control of their energy usage and even turn their solar panels into an asset for their business.
While it’s true that Scotland might not receive as much sunlight as sunnier regions, they don’t need it. The efficiency of modern solar panels, coupled with the potential for energy storage, means that solar energy generation is a realistic option. As sustainability and environmental responsibility become paramount for businesses up and down Scotland, an increasing number of companies are turning to renewable energy sources to power their day to day operations. Solar energy has emerged as a viable and attractive option due to its clean and abundant nature.
