Centrica Business Solutions Helps Customers Optimize Day-to-Day Performance with 100% Renewable Energy Solutions

Powering Performance: The Buyers Guide to Solar Now Available

Centrica Business Solutions released a comprehensive Buyers Guide to Solar to help large energy users better understand the ways they can improve their organization's energy efficiency and operational performance.


Produced by Centrica Business Solutions, this 18-page guide provides an end-to-end overview of solar and the option to combine solar and storage as an integrated solution. The report also describes the economics of going solar, various financing options, types of solar installations, and technology and system monitoring to verify productivity.

"Operational excellence and cost management are a key focus for many businesses and schools and energy is a significant factor in both, yet it is often misunderstood and inadequately managed," said Stephen Prince, Head of Centrica Business Solutions North America. "However, when energy is managed well, it can help address these areas and drive your business forward. Our experience in energy trading - through our sister company, Direct Energy Business—and as an energy aggregator allows us to offer unique propositions for our customers, helping them to manage financial goals, improve energy efficiency and simplify their energy management."

Centrica Business Solutions installed a solar system at Reed Intermediate School in Newtown, Connecticut, which reduced energy costs by 43% with an estimated savings of $1.5M over 25 years. Financed through a Power Purchase Agreement with the Connecticut Green Bank, the building owners could go solar with no upfront costs, delivering immediate savings on electricity. In some states, there are robust incentives that have made solar more affordable for organizations considering renewable energy sources.

In September, Centrica announced the purchase of Vista Solar, a leading California solar engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) company serving commercial, institutional and industrial customers. Serving customers from coast to coast, Centrica Business Solutions has a dedicated team of solar experts to help maximize savings and efficiencies.
