Benefits of Financing Your Solar Projects

Retain capital in your business

By opting to finance solar projects, businesses can preserve their capital for essential operations and strategic investments, allowing them to maintain financial flexibility and agility.

Spread cost and risk

Financing solar panels can enable businesses to distribute the cost of the project over time, mitigating the financial burden associated with large upfront expenditures whilst simultaneously reduce exposure to potential risk.

Significant tax benefits

Embracing finance for solar projects can lead to significant tax advantages, as many areas offer tax incentives and credits for businesses adopting environmentally friendly initiatives, contributing not only to sustainable practices but also to bottom-line savings.

Solar Panels for Beamish Park Golf Club

At the end of 2022 Beamish Park’s fixed electricity tariff with their provider came to an end – they were facing an increase of 14p to 70p per unit. Annually this would have meant their energy bills would have increased from £12,000 to £70,000. The club investigated financing solar panels to reduce their energy costs.

In January, February and March of 2023 the club’s monthly electricity bills were approximately £5,500 per month. After negotiating a better tariff with our provider and installing solar panels, our monthly electricity bills, and the finance repayment combined cost us just £2,000 per month.” Phillip Dobson, Treasurer of Beamish Golf Club
