Zestec also helps clients who are seeking to purchase a solar PV system outright deploying their own capital, applying the same quality approach and rigour as we do to our own assets deployed via a PPA.
A capital purchase option accelerates the return on investment over a fully funded system, but does attract two other ancillary challenges:
1. An increase in business rates. (This does not apply to the PPA solution, as the business does not ‘own’ the asset).
2. The ongoing monitoring, maintenance and management of the asset.
Many organisations that invest in their own solar system do not always appreciate the maintenance and support required to maximise the lifetime efficiency of the asset. Crucially there may come a point where the business wishes to re-finance the asset as it requires capital for other reasons; only a well-maintained asset will be attractive.
For this reason Zestec incorporate an active operational maintenance agreement on all assets, giving clients maximum performance and peace of mind for the future.
