Itâ€™s only natural that customers of fitness and health facilities would also care about the health of the planet. Thanks to solar, business owners can help make a better planet while also helping the bottom line. Today hospitals are adapting solar power to generate clean electricity for its patients.
How Solar Works
Fitness facilities tend to have strong, year-round domestic hot water needs, which make them an excellent fit for solar hot water systems. Solar hot water offers:
â€¢ Up to 80% of year-round hot water needs for a facility.
â€¢ Integrates with any existing water heating solution: oil, electric, propane, or natural gas.
â€¢ A guaranteed ROI for building owners,sometimes in as little as 3-5 years to â€˜simple paybackâ€™
Solar photovoltaic (PV) technology produces electricity for a business (vs. meeting water heating demands). It allows a business to generate clean electricity on its rooftop (or land) at a very predictable cost-per-kilowatt-hour that is generally less than currently paid to the utility. When the sun is out, the panels make power. When the sun goes down, the business consumes electricity from the grid. Grid consumption versus production is reconciled monthly and credits carry forward up to a year.
