The perks of going solar that your business cannot ignore

Emerging demand for green products combined with the rising national electricity tariff makes renewable energy adoption a hero for Vietnam enterprises.

Don’t be left behind in the race toward sustainability

Businesses nowadays face greater pressure from purpose-driven consumers to cut down on their carbon footprints which negatively puts a toll on the environment. So that’s why lots of companies across the world are seeking green solutions like going renewable so that they will not lose their customers to other competitors.

A study by IBM Institute for Business Value in 2021 reveals that 90% out of 14,000 people from 9 different countries stated that the Covid-19 pandemic has shifted their views on the environment and sustainability.  55% of respondents consider sustainability as a major factor in their shopping practice and 62% of consumers say they’re willing to change their purchasing habits to reduce environmental impact.

At the same time, as part of the general goal of the Ministry of Industry and Trade’s action plan to implement Vietnam’s commitment to achieving net-zero carbon emissions by 2050, greenhouse gas emissions at energy-intensive manufacturing companies will be strictly controlled.

Therefore, switching to solar is a smart initiative that helps businesses worldwide align with modern consumer’s expectations emerging from the crucible of COVID and the global energy transition trend.

Adopting rooftop solar is not simply a showcase of environmental protection

1. Save on Electricity Costs

The rooftop solar system generates electricity directly from the sun which does not pollute the environment or emit carbon dioxide. Not only does solar energy brings such ease to our vulnerable atmosphere but it also gives businesses a way out of heavy electric bills and a competitive edge to thrive in the marketplace.

The electricity price in Vietnam grows an average of 5% over the year from 2010 to 2020, and in the period from 2021 to 2022, it stays unchanged to encourage a bounce-back from the recession following the pandemic. However, EVN says there is a challenge to maintain this price level in the upcoming years due to the ongoing surge in input costs.

However, rooftop solar adoption can help businesses reduce their monthly electric bills by 30%. Especially, via the partnership with an expert investor cum developer like VSSES you needn’t spend any penny on upfront investment or operation & maintenance work while enjoying a lower charge for the consumed energy. For example, with a 1 MWp rooftop solar system invested by VSSES in 25 years of contract duration, your business can save up to 25 billion dongs.

2. Enhance competitive capacity

With rooftop solar, your business can enhance the competitive capacity in the export markets, especially in EU and American countries. A lot of big corporations from these regions require partners in their supply chain to switch to renewables since they have committed to powering their whole operation systems with clean energy since their participation in RE100, led by the Climate Group and in partnership with CDP. This global corporate renewable energy initiative brings together hundreds of large and ambitious businesses committed to 100% renewable electricity.
