We help businesses gain long term financial savings by generating their own clean, green electricity from solar energy, without the need for any capital expenditure
If your organisation has a suitable roof, piece of land or lake / reservoir to lease, you could be benefiting from lower electricity bills, greater certainty about future energy supply and reduced carbon emissions, without incurring any cost.
Zestec is unlike any other solar-based asset management and development business. We focus on the long term, helping commercial and industrial businesses, public-sector organisations and third sector bodies optimise the inherent value in their roof surface area over a 25-year period.
We also believe that every organisation has its own responsibility to manage the environment and should be demonstrating to customers, suppliers and employees that the business cares about the future of the earth for our children and future generations.
Zestec’s innovative approach to financing enables us to provide commercial solar PV systems to commercial organisations without reliance on Government subsidies.
How it works
You agree to lease the airspace above your roof* for 25 years and enter into a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA)
We install our solar PV system on your roof, free of charge
You pay a low rate per unit of solar electricity you consume
We monitor, maintain and insure the system for 25 years, at no cost to you
*PPA’s are also available for ground mounted and even floating solar PV systems
How you benefit
Free solar PV system
The system is fully funded by us.
Immediate savings on electricity bills
Solar electricity you consume is purchased at a rate cheaper than is available from your current energy provider.
Zero cost ‘green’ credentials
A zero capital route to improving your company’s environmental responsibility, enhancing relations with green thinking customers, suppliers and staff.
No maintenance or insurance costs
We proactively manage the system under a long-term operation and maintenance contract, including provision of insurance cover, all at no cost to you.
Long term protection against energy markets
The unit price you pay for electricity generated by the solar PV system will only rise in line with RPI, allowing you to budget more effectively.
The PPA can be transferred to new occupants of the property should you move to new premises.
Typical savings you can expect to receive
Zestec fully funds the entire installation of a solar PV system and you benefit by consuming the discounted solar electricity which is generated.
After 25 years, ownership of the system transfers to you and you enjoy free solar electricity for the remaining life of the system (c. 10 years).
