Germany is a good example of rising energy costs: since 2006, the price of electricity has risen by an average of 4.8 % p.a.. The resulting additional costs pose a real economical challenge, particularly to medium-sized enterprises. Solar energy puts a hold on your ever increasing electricity costs, helps to save money in the long-term and improves your competitive position by offering cost advantages for periods of more than 20 years.

Large-Scale Commercial Roofs.


Rooftop system in Pasing, Germany – nominal power 1.2 MWp

Rising electricity costs hamper your

competitiveness

Germany is a good example of rising

energy costs: since 2006, the price of

electricity has risen by an average of

4.8 % p.a., and the current situation is

likely to get worse in the future. Experts

anticipate annual electricity

price increases of up to 5 %. The resulting

additional costs pose a real

economical challenge, particularly to

medium-sized enterprises .

As well as financial pressure, the continuous

price increases also represent a

critical planning uncertainty for your

business. For commercial businesses it

is therefore a good idea to obtain as little

electricity as possible from the public

power grid and focus instead on selfgenerated

electricity for self-consumption.

This ensures you have a long-term

stable and cost-effective electricity

price and will become more independent

from your public energy supplier.

Electricity price

Electricity prices are currently at

15–19 euro cents* per kilowatt hour for

medium-sized enterprises. Unlike in

large companies and electricity intensive

businesses, as a German mediumsized

enterprise you do not have the opportunity

to profit from low exchange

electricity prices.

Photovoltaics guarantees you stable

and low electricity prices

With a photovoltaic system from

IBC SOLAR, you can easily produce

the electricity you need for your company

yourself – at a fixed price. Selfconsumption

is therefore an economically

attractive alternative to conventionally

generated electricity from

your energy supplier.

What actually is self-consumption?

We talk about self-consumption when

self-generated electricity is consumed

immediately and directly at the site

where it is produced. The specific selfconsumption

rate depends on the individual

load profile – how much a company

consumes – up to 100 % is possible.

Electricity cost security for at least

20 years

Photovoltaics is an investment that pays

off. The prices of components have fallen

sharply in recent years, meaning that

investment costs have become considerably

lower. However, the key savings

potential lies in the favourable and

steady electricity production costs over

the years to come. Secure yourself low

electricity costs for the next 20 years

with an investment in a photovoltaic system.

One kilowatt hour (kWh) of self-produced

solar power currently costs on

average 10 euro cents. The level of electricity

procurement costs means that it

is worth generating and consuming your

own electricity with a photovoltaic system.

GOOD TO KNOW:

Electricity at a reasonable fixed

price and attractive system

prices make self-consumption

of solar energy a sustainable,

profitable investment.

Installing a photovoltaic system on a flat roof

Using your own solar power is ideal for

commercial businesses

For the majority of medium-sized enterprises, solar power self-consumption is ideal

because a photovoltaic system produces the most electricity during core working

hours – exactly when it is needed.

E.g. commercial business: production only on weekdays

Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday Sunday

E.g. commercial business: continuous production

Thanks to the coverage of the power production curve and load profile, companies

in the commercial sector can often use the majority of their self-generated electricity

on site. Production machines, air conditioning units, emergency lighting and electronic

data processing run round the clock so there is always demand for electricity.

Particularly high self-consumption rates are reached by companies with continuous

production, whose electricity consumption rises in the morning, peaks at midday

and drops again in the evening or is on the whole considerably higher than the solar

power generated.

GOOD TO KNOW:

Every industry has a characteristic

load profile which we can use

to accurately predict the selfconsumption

rate.

Profit from your previously unused

roof area

Overview of the benefits you will see with commercial self-consumption:

A Reduced electricity bills

Thanks to self-consumption, you will

need to buy less expensive additional

electricity from your supplier. You can

therefore relieve the financial burden

on your company in the long term

and increase competitiveness.

A Exploit potential

Convert your unused roof areas

into production sites. As well as cost

savings for self-generated electricity,

in many countries a fixed remuneration

for the unused electricity

is guaranteed.

Rooftop system in Ciudad Real,

Spain – Nominal power 1.0 MWp

A Fixed electricity price

You produce your own electricity at

a long-term fixed price. The less you

need to buy additionally, the more independent

you are from your energy

supplier, keeping your power supply

calculable.

A Simpler financing

Financing will become much simpler

with our comprehensive warranty.

Rooftop system in Peer, Belgium –

Nominal power 832 kWp

Example of beneficial forecast*

The annual consumption of the business in the following example is 1100 MWh.

The current purchase costs for electricity from the public grid are 17 euro cents per

kWh.

With self-generated electricity the costs per kWh drop by 7 euro cents to 10 euro

cents per kWh. This was calculated with a system of 500 kWp and a self-consumption

rate of 70 %. The remaining 30 % of the electricity generated can be fed into

the public grid and will be remunerated in many countries.

The total saving after 20 years with no electricity price increase is EUR 647,500,

or with an electricity price increase of 3 % it is EUR 1,036,500.

GOOD TO KNOW:

The calculation differs depending

on the country-specific values.

We will gladly make an individual

calculation for you.
