Catalyst, a market leading energy consultant who provides energy procurement services, sustainability and environmental services, announced their partnership.
Through this partnership, Solar2Energy will be offering its full end to end photovoltaic solution to catalysts clients to allow them to benefit from their own on site generation with no capital outlay.
This is possible due to Solar2Energy securing solar funds totaling over £100 million, to meet the capital outlay for purchasing, installing and maintaining solar PV installations for commercial use.
Solar2Energy provides an integrated commercial solar proposition to Catalyst’s clients and continuously monitors the equipment of the plant to detect operation failures or under-performance spots.
Catalyst then provides real-time and secure collection and recording of statistical data, as well as reporting according to the operators’ needs. Reports can be obtained directly on a desktop or through web browsers and email. With long term rising energy costs, the demand for onsite energy generation is set to grow significantly over the next 12-months.
How does it work? Catalyst conducts an initial desktop survey to determine a company’s typical energy usage and maximum solar potential. From this initial assessment, we present a custom designed solar proposal for a system that will match their requirements. If this is a commercially viable proposition we will then arrange for a further detailed onsite survey.
If the customer is happy to proceed, Solar2Energy will own, install and maintain the solar panels without the worry of the high initial investment or the hassle of connecting the system to the national grid.
The solar panels are always on, so all the while it is daylight, the panels help to power the business, and the customer pays a significantly reduced monthly bill for the power they use.
“This new option makes it easier and more affordable than ever before for companies to take advantage of the financial and environmental benefits associated with going solar,” said Chris Hurcombe, Managing Director of Catalyst. “There are thousands of companies who want to go solar, but haven’t been able to proceed because of the upfront costs. Now they can.”
The benefits associated with choosing solar energy are significant. As utility rates are expected to continue to increase, solar electric and solar hot water systems give consumers the means to take control of their long term utility costs.
Businesses that take advantage of solar technology can significantly reduce their monthly utility expenditures. “Catalyst is recognised as one of the market leading energy consultants operating in the UK today, and we are genuinely excited about delivering our solar solution to their clients” commented Solar2Enenrgy Managing Director Caroline Joseph.
