Financing Solar For Commercial Applications

If you are considering installing solar on your business premises understandably one of the key considerations is the up-front costs. Recycle solar offers a range of financing options which can make going solar a reality for commercial as well as environmental reasons.

Free Solar For Commercial

Recycle Solar have access to various funding organisations, this method of funding benefits you if you want to purchase power at a much cheaper rate but don’t want to use your own Capital Expenditure (Cap Ex) to fund the project up-front.

Our funders will pay for the installation of solar on your building or land, in return they will take the Feed in tariff (FiT) and the export payment from the grid, then provide you with electricity at a much reduced rate for a guaranteed period of twenty years on a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA).

After twenty years the ownership of the system transfers to you, and at this point you will receive the full benefit of FREE solar PV electricity for the remaining lifespan of the solar PV system. read more

Self Funded

If you can fund the installation yourself you are in a great position to be able to own 100% of the FIT and any export payments from the grid. Its a great investment for your company as you benefit from cheap power during the day and a payment for any surplus power you are creating.

If you choose to fund the project yourself Recycle Solar can help all along the way, from putting you in touch with installers to providing the panels and parts. There is a certain amount of administration to take care of, especially when the size of the project becomes larger, such as applications to councils and the District Network Operators (DNOs) our experts can manage all this on your behalf. read more

Equity Share

This is basically a combination of the two options above, you pay part of the installation costs using your own Cap Ex and our funders picks up the rest. An agreement is made calculated on the level of the investment made by each party. read more

Fully Financed

It may be you want to fund the project yourself, but don’t have the Cap Ex available. If this is the case and you need to look for finance we can help. You can either use your own bank or building society to apply for finance or we can put you in contact with financiers who specialise in this type of arrangement. This way of financing the project means you can retain all of the FIT and Export Payments, which in turn can be used to pay off the finance agreement. read more

Whichever way you want to finance your solar project Recycle Solar can guide and support you every step of the way...
