TRANSPORT & LOGISTICS
Although it’s not uncommon for independent transport facilities and logistics companies to self-fund solar PV installations, larger third-party logistics (3PL) providers are more suited to a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) where a common requirement is to save money on energy bills across multiple sites.
With a solar PV system installed and maintained at zero cost, your company will benefit from reduced energy bills by purchasing the generated electricity at a pre-agreed rate, much cheaper than your existing energy supplier, for the duration of the term.
This agreement will also protect you from future energy price increases, saving you more money with each price inflation enforced by the energy companies.
With a solar PV system, you are reducing the carbon footprint of your supply chain which is a very desirable factor to many clients of 3PL providers. With companies under increasing pressure from the Government to reduce their carbon emissions, choosing an outsourced logistics partner that is actively reducing their impact on the environment can help strengthen existing relationships and start new ones.
