Solar Panels – Green Dental Office

The planet’s environmental problems are getting worse and worse and along with this, luckily, environmental awareness is also going up. Many people and businesses are starting to take part in saving the planet’s natural resources. There is no time to waste when it comes to going green. If you want to make your dental practice more environmentally friendly, installing solar panels may be a great idea. Solar panels have become much more efficient and durable during the last decade, making them a good investment. Many solar panels come with 25-year warranties, which means you are almost guaranteed to get a good return on investment on them. Let’s have a look at things to consider when considering installing solar panels for your dental practice. Solar Panels - Green Dental Offices

Solar Panels Can Help You Save Money

Installing solar panels doesn’t just help to make your practice more eco-friendly, it can also help you save money. Electricity is becoming more expensive all the time. Solar panels can help you reduce or eliminate your practice’s electric bill. If your panels generate more electricity on certain days (e.g. the days that your practice is closed) than you are using, you can even sell back electricity to your electricity provider. With current solar technology, depending on the climate where you live and the orientation of your building, you can expect to have your solar panels paid back in between 5 to 10 years or even less.

Solar Panels Are Almost Maintenance Free

Once your solar panels are installed and up and running, you’ll hardly need any maintenance done on them for the next 25-40 years. Your panels will continue to generate electricity for your practice during this time at no additional cost.

Being Green May be Good For Business

Many consumers today are trying to live more environmentally conscious. This involves buying more eco-friendly products, recycling, using ecologically friendly energy sources and also opting to buy services from businesses that strive to operate in a more ecological way. If your business uses solar panels for electricity generation, this something you can use in your marketing material that may help you attract new clients and retain current ones. This doesn’t mean that you should go overboard with this, but just adding some information about the eco-friendly measures you take at your practice on your website and in your promotion material will do the trick.

Buying Panels

As with any big purchase it is important that you do your research and shop around before you decide on where to buy your solar panels. Also make sure that you look into any rebates that your state may offer for buying solar panels. These can significantly decrease the investment you need to make. Try to negotiate on installation costs, especially if you are buying a large number of panels you may be able to shave quite a bit of money off the total cost.

If you are looking for ways to greenify your dental practice, installing solar panels may be the way to go. Not only will you be able to generate sustainable electricity for your business, but also lower operating costs and maybe even gain new, environmentally conscious clients.
