Many businesses have at least a solar powered calculator around the office somewhere. However, more are looking toward the future and trying to figure out ways to cut costs and be green. One way for businesses to do this is to install solar panels.
Even if it’s just for backup power or as an alternative power source for certain times of the day, solar panels can be a great way to use less conventional energy. If your business is unable to install solar energy panels due to being restricted by the building it is in, another option could be solar energy storage.
These storage cells can be connected to a solar grid at a residence and transported to the business once charged. They can power anything from the coffee pot and water cooler to the computer network.
If your business uses quite a bit of water, solar water heaters can help save a substantial amount of money. There are even solar water heaters available for pools, which can use a lot of power to keep the water warm. Whether the goal is to totally replace the utility company or just to supplement with a green source, there are options.
