Generate your own green electricity and cut your energy costs in the long term

Rising electricity prices and falling investment outlay for renewable energy make self-supply with green power an interesting alternative.

In Germany, generating photovoltaic energy for on-site consumption is a cost-effective means of covering your energy needs. You can export any power that you generate but cannot fully use yourself to the public grid and be paid for it according to the rates laid down in the Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG) and the Combined Heat and Power Act (KWKG).

  • We check whether your roof is suitable for a photovoltaic system of at least 4,000 m².
  • Based on a yield simulation we calculate the likely power generation of your system.
  • Using your individual consumer load profile, we forecast your potential on-site consumption.
  • We optimise the system size in accordance with your intended level of self-sufficiency or on-site consumption.
  • You can find information about on-site consumption solutions for commercial properties with small roof areas here.

Solar power models for companies: let the sun work for you

While the classic power export approach under the Renewable Energy Sources Act is an option, more and more businesses are using solar PV systems for on-site consumption – and in the process, are securing for themselves greater independence from constant increases in the price of electricity. BayWa r.e. can support you here with two models developed specifically for businesses:

Buying a system: save electricity costs and secure long-term returns

Are you looking for a safe and profitable investment opportunity for your capital, while seeking a permanent reduction in your electricity costs? Then investing in your own photovoltaic system with on-site consumption is the right solution for you.
You can currently secure any outside capital you need at particularly low rates. Your own capital contribution has a payback of just eight years and your returns grow against the background of constantly rising electricity prices.

Green energy pays – not just in Germany

Rising electricity prices and ambitious sustainability targets are forcing companies around the world to take action. However, as each country has its own set of legal regulations, and each company is unique in its requirements, highly complex solutions are often called for. Special solar power solutions for industrial and commercial customers can resolve this dilemma. They ensure precisely predictable electricity costs over the long-term.

Are you looking for an energy solution? Look no further! Our experts are specialists in this field, and can present you with options tailored to your company – wherever in Europe it may be based, and in compliance with country-specific framework conditions.
