The new edie Explains: Onsite Solar business guide, produced in association with edie’s supporting partner E.ON, provides an in-depth summary of the onsite solar, which has benefited from falling installation costs and increased efficiencies, making it a potentially transformative business solution.


What is onsite solar and how could it work for a business? What are the business benefits from installing onsite solar? And what considerations and funding opportunities need to be examined to build the business case? This free edie Explains guide gives you everything you need to know.

The eight-page guide also incorporates a number of ‘top tips’ on deploying onsite solar solutions and concludes with an industry case study, provided by E.ON, which explores the company worked with The ACC Liverpool Group to install 925 solar panels.

The onsite solution accounts for 5-10% of the venue’s overall electricity use and is used across different venues, to power everything from exhibitions and conferences to banquets, concerts and sporting events, as well as a four-star, 216-room hotel.
