For the last three months I’ve been trying to convince management that it’s time for the business to go solar. I got a few panels installed at the beginning of the year at home and it’s completely revolutionised our lives. Not only do I have that warm fuzzy feeling that I’m actually doing something worthwhile for the environment, but the financial benefits have been better than we’d ever expected. Our electricity bills just keep shrinking, it’s fantastic.
So naturally, all this success has turned me into a bit of a solar promoter, but it’s not without good cause. And the thing is, an industrial solar solution is exactly what the company I work for needs. We’ve been growing exponentially since I started there about 18 months ago, and I know we’ve had trouble with our existing company. More than that, though, I know solar is something we should consider, not just from a financial perspective, but also in terms of our brand and overall philosophy.
Obviously I can’t go into too many details here, but we do want to be at the forefront of innovation and adopt long-term, sustainable practices. In a conversation I had with the senior management team, they addressed our collective mission to create not simply economically sustainable practices, but environmentally friendly ones as well. This being the case, I believe investing in solar energy is the right choice to make.
The problem is that not everybody agrees. So I’m thinking I’ll come up with a different angle. Instead of just focusing solely on solar, if I look at it from a more comprehensive, energy usage perspective, that could work better. One of the companies I’ve been looking at offers commercial energy monitoring as well as solar energy and other energy saving solutions. By going through a company that provides all those things at the same time, we’ll be able to simplify the whole process.
