Investing in solar panels, battery storage, EV chargers, either independently or as an integrated renewable solution is a guaranteed way for businesses to reduce their carbon print, increase their corporate social responsibility and take control of rising energy prices.

With volatility and escalating costs in the energy market, and the pressure to balance out the energy model for commercial buildings is forcing owners to look at ways to decrease their energy consumption, and reduce their carbon footprint.

Throughout the world, consumer demand for environmentally friendly organisations is on the rise. Companies are expected to manage their carbon footprint and actively show they are working towards a sustainable future.

Renewable energy for business makes good business sense.

“It’s the best investment we’ve ever made…We’ve generated £200,000 of our own electricity.”

Watch David Woolger, MD of Magnetic Shields, talk about the huge commercial and environmental benefits of solar:

Solar for Business: The Benefits

Choosing a Renewable Energy Partner

When undertaking a project that will have long term benefits to your business it is important to work with someone you can trust. Here at TLGEC, we have been helping businesses achieve their goals using a wide range of technologies. Rest assured we will be able to advise you on the best solution to meet your needs.


TLGEC are a CHAS Accredited Contractors so you can be safe in the knowledge that our health and safety processes meet excellent standards.

Renewable Energy Financing

TLGEC have multiple solar financing options available to help businesses avoid the initial capital expenditure.

Subject to approval our packages provide savings and revenue from the day the system is commissioned with minimal installation downtime allowing you to get on with your business focus.

PPA (Power Purchase Agreement)

A PPA is an increasingly popular ‘free’ solar offering that provides a range of financial and environmental benefits.

It is an agreement between 2 parties, with one generating the energy and the other buying it.

During this term, electricity generated by the PV system is purchased at a cheaper rate – saving you thousands of pounds every year and giving you long term control over your business overheads.

Is PPA right for you?

  • Suitable roof or ground space
  • You or the company own the property
  • Looking to protect from a volatile energy market
  • Looking to reduce costs
  • Aiming to meet carbon reduction targets and improve CSR


  • No initial costs – Cash flow positive from day one
  • Allows you to use capital to invest in other areas of your business
  • Reduce OPEX costs
  • Fixed energy costs
  • No system performance or operating risk
  • Great PR – visibly demonstrate environmental commitment

Asset Finance

The Little Green Energy Company work with trusted partners, who can arrange asset finance alongside our commercial clients.

The option of asset finance allows your company to install a renewable energy system and pay the finance off over a fixed period.

In many commercial cases, the asset finance quarterly payments will be less than your savings on electricity and payments received from incentives such as FITs, ROCs and RHI.

This means that with asset finance you could be cash positive from day one.

Green Loan

Positioned as good for the planet, good for your business, Green Loans can help you fund sustainable projects for your business including the purchase of renewable energy solutions.

Green Loans are available through leading lenders. Eligibility and loan amount are dependent on the lender and the specifics of your project.

If you’re considering this option, speak to our Commerical team, who can provide you a list of lenders and their requirements.

Green Energy Financing for Businesses

The UK energy market is evolving. Distributed, low-carbon energy generation is fast replacing the declining capacity of centralised, fossil-fuel-based power stations that once dominated the electricity market. In response, the delivered price of power is rising to absorb integration costs of increased intermittent, low-carbon generation.

The commodity element is subject to supply, demand and geopolitical influences causing costs to rise and fall in a short space of time. By contrast, the non-commodity elements made up of charges, levies and taxes are predictable and forecast to rise extensively as a result of government interventions in the electricity market along with balancing transmission and distribution costs.

We are now in a situation where the end-user is exposed to both market volatility and uncertainty that comes with buying energy, which is a global commodity, as well as supporting the escalating non-commodity costs. The consequence of this to the end-user is one of being forced into short-term planning of their energy strategy.

Solar Electricity – hedge against market uncertainty

Choosing to procure solar electricity via a PPA is a perfect hedging strategy against market uncertainties as it provides a direct, reliable and independent source of locally generated power. In simple terms, it will provide businesses with their own, exclusive solar power station but, better still, we can do this at a 25% lower cost than forecasted grid-supplied electricity.

Our in-house team will design, develop and deliver a tailored solution that will negate non-commodity charges because we will be connecting directly into your network (behind-the-meter). Your business will benefit from cheaper electricity and future pricing certainty that comes with the ability to fix these costs for up to 30 years.

Free solar and cheaper energy

If your business satisfies any of the criteria above, you may be eligible to receive a free, fully maintained solar PV system – designed and installed by The Little Green Energy Company – in return for a fixed-term lease or license of your roof.

A competitive PPA price (per unit of electricity) will also be offered that is significantly lower than the energy market – fixing your energy costs and saving you tens of thousands of pounds each year.
