The Economic Power of Eco-Friendly Electric Generators: A Sustainable Investment for a Profitable Future


As our world grows ever more concerned with sustainable and efficient practices, environmentally friendly electricity generators have started to be seen as a good idea—both in the boardroom and for those operating on an individual scale. They are linked to very real benefits for the environment. In this piece, we’ll get into the details of how using environmentally friendly electricity generators can be good for you straightaway. The pathway to sustainability isn’t clear-cut for everyone, but what we can see from recent history is that acquiring an environmentally friendly electricity generator is a financially smart move.

The Financial Case for Eco-Friendly Electric Generators

Decreased Operational Expenses:

The magnetic charm of green electricity generators is surely their promise of serious cuts in running costs. The traditional type was not built to be frugal with fuel or anything else, for that matter; in fact, many of them still fire as if they were pre-revolutionary muskets. And where does the fuel come from? The 100 percent certainty prize goes to a no-goodnik called “Fossil,” who is always “Yes, ma’am”–ing or “Yes, sir”–ing his way right into the kind of climacteric, climatic caper that would make suspicious green M’s on Snicket’s face. And there you have it—another good reason to switch to green electricity.

Reduced Upkeep Expenses:

Generators that are friendly to the environment usually have fewer moving parts and need less maintenance than generators that run on fossil fuels. This means that, over the “life” of the generator—that is, the length of time the generator is expected to function before it, too, gives out—eco-friendly generators can be cheaper to maintain and repair than the fossil-fuel kind.

Renewable energy is the most rapidly growing energy source globally. It is estimated that renewable energy will increase from 13% in 2011 to 24% in 2030 of global electricity generation. The use of wind power and solar power are growing particularly fast in the electric power sector. Renewables offer a unique combination of benefits not found in fossil fuels. Renewables tend to have very low total costs because once the facilities have been built, there are no fuel costs. Renewables are modular, meaning they can be deployed on a large scale or a small scale, which allows for much more flexibility in the types of areas where they can be used compared to fossil fuel energy sources. Renewables have practically infinite supplies; once built, they never run out (during our lifetime, at least).

Putting your money into an environmentally friendly electric generator can give you “energy independence.” You will no longer be hostage to the high volatility of energy markets, especially if you have a valuable operation that you want to keep running all the time. In the event of a power failure, be it a natural disaster or a grid disruption, environmentally friendly electric generators aren’t the only key to keeping your operation running at full tilt and with full revenue.

Tax Benefits and Government Incentives: Businesses that elect to relocate or open new offices in certain cities have been able to benefit from a broad array of recent government incentives and tax benefits. National builders, in particular, have used these tools to work effectively with local groups and—you guessed it—expand their profit margins. There, I’ve said it. There’s very little hard data to support this truism. The one piece of soft data we have: The Census Bureau observes that national “real estate firms that frequently open new offices tend to do so in areas offering government incentives.”

To stimulate the adoption of green energy technologies, many authorities reward their installation with a mix of incentives and tax rebates or breaks. The initial cost of buying an eco-friendly power generator or heating system often primes people to do the exact opposite because the price attached to “going green” is at times so very high. But those costs can plummet when government incentives are factored in.

The value of the property goes up.

When you install a green, electric generator, you are effectively increasing the value of whatever property you have. Be it a hidden facility, your house, or a commercial place of business, they all gain value when potential buyers look into your sustainable course and see such installations as the fruits of your labor. When setting the stage for utility and value negotiations, any renewable energy system on hand can only help improve the value of a property.


Real-World Examples of Economic Benefits

  • The first case study is about a manufacturing plant. Once upon a not very distant time, the plant relied completely on the grid for electric power. However, the way the plant was constructed and the amount of electricity it uses meant that the power generated by the on-site natural gas-fired power plant was much cheaper than the electricity the plant could obtain from the grid. The plant was a totally electric-powered facility, which meant that the heating of the envisioned massive structures would have to be done with natural gas-fired boilers. The electricity to power the operation of the massive Federal helium plants was another serious issue.


Electric generators are no longer merely an emergency power solution; they are a sly financial investment that can bring massive paybacks. With an eco-friendly power generator, you not only help keep the world in power, but you also act responsibly by not using an emission-puffing generator that runs on diesel fuel. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that for every 10,000 U.S. dollars invested in “renewable” electric generators, U.S. businesses can reap 60,000 U.S. dollars in what the agency calls “benefits.”
