Many businesses have already plugged into Solar PV to reduce their electricity bills and earn extra income from Government incentives. Solar PV is a straightforward option for any business that has a roof space – although panels can also be mounted on the ground. Solar PV offers a very attractive Return on Investment (ROI). The payback for Solar PV can be as little as six or seven years.  By generating your own electricity, you are also future-proofing your business against further increases in the cost of electricity.

Pure Renewables knew the subsidies were about to go down and were very good at getting planning permission through in time. They came up and helped negotiate with the National Park. That was very useful.

ABOUT SOLAR PV

 

As with Ground Source Heat Pumps (GSHPs), Solar PV can contribute towards your business becoming ISO 14001 compliant, something many major companies and inward investors are looking for in their supply chains. By utilising free sunlight to generate electricity, Solar PV offers excellent green credentials. The systems are very low maintenance with a lifespan of around 25 years. Pure Renewables was one of the first companies to begin installing Solar PV. As well as a hassle-free installation, we can monitor your system so you know exactly how much electricity you are generating and how much money you have saved.

 

 

 

 

Solar PV is relatively straightforward to retrofit to existing buildings. As long as the roof structure is sound, the installation is quick and easy.  It can also contribute towards reducing the costs of running a heat pump, making them an ideal combination. If your business has offices, then you will need to have an EPC rating of D or better in order to qualify for the incentive payments.

SOLAR PANELS (SOLAR PV) FAQS

HOW DO SOLAR PANELS WORK?

Solar electricity systems capture the sun’s energy using photovoltaic cells. The cells don’t need direct sunlight to work – they can still generate electricity on a cloudy day – but generate more electricity in stronger sunshine. The cells convert the sunlight into electricity, which can be used to run household appliances and lighting.

 

The power of a PV cell is measured in kilowatts peak (kWp). That’s the rate at which it generates energy at peak performance in full direct sunlight during the summer.

 

Is my property suitable?

Solar panels are lightweight and highly adaptable. Ideally, you need a south, south-east or south west facing roof space that isn’t shaded. Even the smallest space can generate a worthwhile amount of electricity but we wouldn’t recommend installing panels on north-facing roofs.

 

Do I need planning permission?

Generally, installations fall under permitted development rights so planning permission is not required but always check first.

 

HOW RELIABLE IS THE TECHNOLOGY?

Solar panels are robust and carry warranties of 5-10 years, depending on the manufacturer. They are also guaranteed to perform at no less than 80 per cent of their original performance outputs up for up to 25 years.

 

HOW EXPENSIVE ARE THEY TO MAINTAIN?

Solar PV panels have no moving parts and need little maintenance – you’ll just need to keep the panels relatively clean and make sure trees don’t begin to overshadow them. Panels are mounted at an angle and in most cases, rain water is sufficient to keep them clean and ensure optimal performance.

DESIGN & CONSULTANCY

All renewable energy systems need to be designed so they are specifically tailored to the premises. This is essential to ensure you qualify for the Government renewable energy incentives such as the Feed-in-Tariff and the Renewable Heat Incentive.  We look at all aspects of your building so we can advise on how it can be made more energy-efficient and recommend the type of technology that suits you or your business.
