Commercial solar system installation for printing facilities
While the printing industry mightn’t be dying like so many pundits are predicting, there’s no denying that the market demand for printing services is in a bit of a decline.
As such, businesses that are choosing to stay in the printing industry need to start looking at innovative ways to keep afloat in the face of such circumstances.
Fortunately, it isn’t all doom and gloom – there are plenty of exciting and innovative opportunities out there to help you stay ahead.
And if you ask us, a commercial solar system may hold the answer!
3 ways commercial solar installation helps printers
1) Commercial solar helps you keep on top of your power bills
Printing businesses consume a lot of power:
- Printing machines often run 24/7
- Lights need to be kept on
- Powerful climate control is needed to assist with drying
So it should go without saying that they can also rack up some hefty power bills!
By generating your own power, a commercial solar system helps printing businesses bring down their energy bills. You’ll be able to enjoy permanent reductions in your bills.
Not only that, but your commercial solar panels may even earn you money thanks to feed-in tariffs, rebates and incentive schemes. For businesses that consume as much energy as printing facilities, this can translate into considerable sums.
That’s the reason we say that solar offers a guaranteed ROI!
2) A commercial solar system gives your business a competitive advantage
Prospective clients generally pay attention to paper composition, ink quality, and your company history. But one thing they may look at above all else? Cost.
As the manager or owner of a printing business, you’re no doubt already familiar with the importance of price in the purchase decision.
Even small savings can be enough for clients to decide to sign on with your printing facility over your competitors (and vice versa).
Make no mistake, price is the ultimate competitive advantage in printing.
And commercial solar installation helps you use this to your advantage.
Commercial solar installation gives printing businesses the power to reduce their overhead costs by:
- Reducing your quarterly energy bill (see above)
- Providing income through rebates, incentives and feed-in tariffs
This can directly translate to lower prices, giving you the price advantage over your competitors.
And in a market that’s as price sensitive as printing, these small savings can make all the difference!
3) Paint your business green with a commercial solar system
While price might be the main determinant in a client’s decision, it’s not the only one.
Thanks to increasing awareness and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) policies, environmental friendliness is quickly turning into an important selling point.
Chances you’ve received enquiries about whether or not you can print recycled paper – you might already offer it as an option for environmentally-conscious clients.
Commercial solar installation further reduces your environmental impact – not only that, but boosting your green credentials is another avenue to seek out a competitive advantage.
Commercial solar system installation tailored for your business
No two businesses are the same.
Just because you and a competitor may operate in the same industry, doesn’t mean that your circumstances are identical.
As such, your approach to solar also needs to account for your unique circumstances.
During commercial solar installation, solar installation experts like Pacific Solar perform an in-depth system design. We work with you to develop a solar set-up that’s tailored for your needs.
We’ll start by taking a look at the factors that can influence the effectiveness of solar for your facility:
- Levels of direct sunlight
- Roof space
- Roof strength
- Building orientation
Once all that’s established, our team will then:
- Measure your energy consumption by taking a reading from your meter
- Ask about your power bills
- Determine how electricity is being used by your printing business
- Talk to you about your budget, and how much money you can afford to invest
Armed with this information, we design a system that addresses the unique requirements of your printing business.
