Solar PV

Solar Energy Solutions

 We offer a comprehensive range of solar energy solutions for commercial and domestic properties looking to reduce their carbon footprint and save on the rising cost of electricity.

Solar PV Specialists

Our in-house solar PV team offer a quality installation service to give your business the ability to generate your own green energy quickly and efficiently around the clock.

Reduce your Energy Bills

Investing in Solar PV is a great move for most property owners looking to reduce their electricity bills. With the current rising cost of energy, solar panels protect you from future price hikes by supplying you with power year after year.

Generate Your Own Free Electricity

Solar panel installation only requires daylight to produce electricity all year round. By using your roof to power your premises you have a constant supply of energy which avoids any unplanned disruption to your business.

Solar Battery Storage

Our Solar Battery Storage systems allow you to store the power that you generate using solar panels so that you can use it at a time that suits you.

Simply charge your battery during the night using the cheap rate of electricity and use that energy during the day instead of the more expensive tariff. This avoids wasting any unnecessary electricity that you have produced.

Get Paid for Excess Electricity

Your energy company will send payments for the power you generate that is not used on your premises. This is typically around 5p /kWh.

Reduce Your Carbon Footprint

Solar electricity is green renewable energy and doesn’t release any harmful carbon dioxide emissions or other pollutants. This in turn helps reduce your impact on the environment and preserve natural resources. A typical single-phase system could save over 1 tonne of carbon per year, most commercial installations are three times bigger and can save far more.

Off Grid Solutions

Off grid solutions make power available to sites that do not have a conventional grid.

This is usually generated using a combination of solar, battery Storage and a backup generator which will operate periodically to enable the battery to remain charged through periods when little sun is available.

Off grid installations have recently become cheaper to run with the increasing wholesale costs of electricity and the generators allowed to run on cheaper red diesel for offgrid and domestic generation of electricity.

Whilst we realise that diesel generators are not as eco-friendly as full renewable electricity, we do realise that in the current climate companies are finding it increasingly difficult when faced with increased electricity charges.

These energy charges can sometimes be in excess of a 500% increase and can make the difference in being able to afford to keep the lights on.

How Do Solar Panels Work?

Solar PV cells are made from layers of semi-conducting material, usually silicon. When light shines on the material, electrons are knocked loose, creating a flow of electricity.

The cells don’t need direct sunlight to work, they work perfectly on a cloudy day. However, the stronger the sunshine, the more electricity is generated.

Solar PV cells are grouped into modules, and modules are usually grouped into solar arrays – modules and arrays come in a variety of shapes and sizes.

Most Solar PV systems are made up of panels that fit on top of your properties roof, but you can also install them on the ground, or fit solar tiles. Arrays come in a variety of shapes and sizes.

The electricity generated is direct current (DC), whereas the electricity you use on your premises is alternating current (AC). A PV inverter is installed along with the system to convert DC electricity to AC.

Monitor Your Power on a Smart App

The amount of power you generate is reported on your own generation meter, this information is also available on smart apps & web-based pages. Ask our team for more information.
