Solar energy for your business

Produce your own solar power – without investment costs

 

Younergy Solar Contracting

When switching to a Younergy Solar-Abo for businesses we finance, design, install and maintain a complete solar system on the roof of your company’s building at no cost. You only pay for the clean, solar electricity the system produces and will receive a normal quarterly electricity bill.
There are no further costs.

REDUCE YOUR ENERGY BILLS

In most regions, our solution is cheaper than the peak-hour electricity tariff offered by your local utility. Thus, your company saves money.

LOCK IN YOUR ENERGY TARIFFS

While network tariffs vary constantly, our rates are fixed, so you know exactly how much you are paying for energy every single year.

GET A TURNKEY SYSTEM

Obtaining planning permission, installation, grant applications, scaffolding… Younergy takes care of everything, so that you can concentrate on what is most important to you.

MAINTENANCE AND INSURANCE GUARANTEED

We always use the best materials. But if something breaks, don’t worry: all maintenance, insurance and repair is included in our service during the entire length of the contract.

A PERSONALISED AND FLEXIBLE SOLUTION

Our systems are tailored to your needs and can be extended over time. At any time, you can also choose to buy the system from Younergy and make it your own.

PRODUCTION MONITORING PLATFORM

With Youdera, our production monitoring platform, you can analyse your electricity production and consumption in real time to further improve the use of your solar energy.

INCREASE YOUR ENERGY INDEPENDENCE

A solar system allows you to take a big step towards energy independence. Draw electricity to run your appliances directly from your roof.

BECOME A SUSTAINABLE BUSINESS

The production of renewable energy on your company’s roofs is a concrete proof of your commitment to a sustainable future. Let your customers know that you care about the environment.

Buy to own or only pay for the energy?

With Younergy, you can either invest into a PV-system by buying it to own yourself, or you can choose to only pay for the solar energy that we produce directly on your roof. With Solar Nation, we install a high-quality solar system, covering as much of your roof as possible, and insure and maintain it for the entire duration of the contract. You have no cost for the material, installation or maintenance and only pay for the energy that you consume. The rest will be fed into the grid by us, to power other buildings in Switzerland, contributing to a faster energy transition.

Questions?

Do I really bear absolutely no installation costs?

Yes, you have zero installation cost. Younergy pays for the system, its installation and maintenance. You only pay for the energy that you consume. There are no hidden costs.

Can you guarantee a good system quality?

Yes, all our installations are top quality systems only using the latest technology. In order to make our business model commercially viable to us, it is essential that we use only the best available equipment that produced the maximum amount of energy and stands for a long time reliably. If the system becomes faulty, we repair is as fast as possible.

Can I buy the system if I change my mind?

Yes, if you wish to own the solar system yourself, you can buy the it off Younergy at any time in the future you like for a fair price.

How does Younergy make its return?

We sell the produced energy to you and what you don’t use yourself, we sell to the grid. We take a certain amount of risk doing this, as the rates for feeding electricity into the grid fluxtuate over time. However, we guarantee that the energy we sell to you is always competitive with what you pay for the same amount of energy if you consumed it from the grid.

What if I choose to sell my building?

If you sell your building, the new building owner simply takes over the energy supply contract. We already had customers selling their buildings and it was a smooth transfer.

Do I still have to pay my utility directly?

The solar system on your roof can produce many times the amount of energy that you consume, but because production patterns are often different from consumption patterns, you will only be able to use a part of it yourself. How much exactly, depends on your daily routine, but it will be likely around 30%. The remaining energy still has to come through the grid and you have to pay your utility directly for this.

What happens when the duration of the contract expires?

When the contract expires, you can decide to extend it, install a new system with a new contract, or take the system down. In this case, the solar panels as well as the entire electrical equipment will be recycled responsibly with a recycling center specialised on solar technology.

Is it possible to add a solar battery?

If you want to add a battery, simply choose so in the first step of qualifying your roof. However, because of the additional price, we might not be able to offer you a price that you find competitive compared with the rates of your local grid. If, however, you are willing to pay a premium price for maximisung the consumption of your own production, and to back up your entire building from potential blackouts, you might consider a system including a battery.
