Report looks at the benefits of roof top solar for commercial properties

Research has found that installing rooftop solar on commercial properties can lead to reduced running costs and increasing property value through providing additional income streams, according to JLL and Solarcentury.

Their report took in market research, analysed commercial properties that already have solar roofs and reviewed valuation methodology.

JLL valuation director Chris Strathon said: “This is the first indepth research into understanding the effect of solar, and it is clear the majority of commercial roof space is untapped as an additional revenue provider.

“We believe rooftop solar on commercial property adds value by improving the marketability of a property and creating additional income, which is received via power-purchase agreements and government-backed tariffs.”
