By installing solar panels on commercial premises you can bring your energy costs down by creating your own electricity, from unused space. From this you can bring the outgoings of your business down while all the time getting a steady income from the still generous FiT payments and also going some way to protecting you against future rising cost of power.
Our bespoke design systems can be installed on most building types including offices, warehouses, factories, farm buildings and many more. If you're looking for a profitable and ethical means of investing then a PV solution is the answer.
Installing Solar PV on commercial buildings can provide:
Improved Energy Efficiency: systems on commercial buildings can offer the best returns in as little as 6 years.
Marketing Advantages: As climate change is inevitable many people are looking to use companies and buildings that are environmentally friendly/responsible, meaning that these people are more likely to go for the greener option.
The current domestic rate on the FiT is £4.25 per unit generated, that applies to systems of 0-10kW in size. Recent reduction in panels cost can now be passed to the consumer and now offers an excellent investment opportunity. See the Feed in Tariff generation and export payment rate table from Ofgem here.
Is my home suitable for Solar PV?
PV panels are capable of being installed on the vast majority of UK homes. Whilst there are some subtle differences in installation procedure dependent upon your roof type - see our PV case studies for examples - only homes with thatched roofs are truly problematic. Also be aware that one KW of solar PV takes up 8m2 of roof space more on flat roofs
Is my home in a suitable location for Solar PV?
Solar PV is appropriate for homes in most urban and rural locations in the UK. The amount of energy received from the sun does vary across the UK - but it not by a large amount. The most important thing to watch out for when considering installing a PV system is shade; beware of any trees, buildings and other obstructions, lying to the South.
