Solar Panels for Offices and Businesses

As businesses tackle with the increasing burden of rising electricity prices, companies across the UK are seeing a significant impact on their operational costs, directly affecting their profit. Offices and commercial buildings, often with ample roof space, are in a great position to install solar photovoltaic (PV) technology, in where it not only promises substantial savings on energy bills, but also increases their green credentials, reducing their carbon emissions and footprint.

By installing solar panels (which generates entirely emission-free renewable energy), businesses can demonstrate a strong commitment to sustainability for customers, employees, shareholders, and regulatory bodies. where this could make your office stand out in already difficult sustainability-conscious market.

How Installing Solar Panels Can Help Offices

Whilst there are financial incentives, installing solar panels on offices also present an effective way to significantly reduce your business’ carbon footprint – a standard 250kWp solar PV system can offset approximately 64 tonnes of CO2 emissions, equivalent to driving 155,000 miles in a petrol car. But what are the other benefits that a commercial solar installation can give a business?

Solar Products

Explore our range of solar products, carefully sourced from reliable manufacturers and fully certified to MCS standards, ensuring optimal performance and reliability. From advanced solar panels that harness sunlight, to cutting-edge battery storage systems, we provide practical solutions that lower costs and promote sustainability.

Solar Panel Maintenance

Solar PV systems are very reliable, but planned solar maintenance is essential to ensure continued high output efficiency. Many solar systems in the UK have been installed for several years now, some for over 5 years. Whilst most maybe running well, many owners don’t check their systems performance regularly and wouldn’t know if it was performing well or not.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long do commercial solar panels last?

Commercial solar panels typically have a lifespan of 25-30 years. They continue to generate electricity beyond this period but at reduced efficiency.

How much electricity do solar PV systems generate?

An optimally orientated, un-shaded 1kWp array will, each year, generate approx 850kWh (units) of electricity.

How do solar PV cells work?

Photovoltaic (PV) cells convert radiation from the sun into electricity.  A typical PV cell consists of a wafer of semi-conducting material, usually silicon, manufactured with two electrically different layers.  When sunlight hits the cell it excites the electrons within the silicon, creating an electric field across the layers and causing a flow of electricity.

What are the cost benefits of installing commercial solar panels?

Commercial solar panels can significantly reduce electricity bills, offering a high return on investment over time. The initial costs are offset by savings on energy bills and potential tax incentives. Moreover, solar energy’s predictability helps businesses budget more effectively by reducing exposure to fluctuating energy prices.

What is the environmental impact of commercial solar panels?

Solar panels significantly reduce carbon emissions by generating renewable energy. This reduces a business’s carbon footprint and supports sustainability goals.

Do I need planning permission to install solar panels?

Most of the time the answer is no. However, if you live in a protected area such as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty or a National Park such as the South Downs, then you may need permission, but not always. We can advise you on this.. Some authorities will ask that you have a bat or bird survey first or that your system meets certain aesthetic criteria such as it being an ‘in-roof’ system where the panels sit flush with the roof tiles. We can work with your needs and design a system that meets the necessary criteria. Some new build properties may also have restrictions on what can be installed. In these cases, we recommend that you check with your estate management company.

Where can I place my solar PV panels?

Solar panels can be mounted in a range of locations, from a roof to the ground and even bespoke frames. We install on a range of roof types, including flat roofs. Ground mounted systems use ballast or specially designed mounting frames. Solar panels are best if they are south facing, but east and west facing roofs are are suitable, although output will be slightly less. A roof pitch of between 10 and 50 degrees is best and preferably with little or no shade. If shade cannot be avoided then we can include optimisers to reduce the shading impact.

Can businesses continue to operate during a solar panel installation?

Yes, in most cases installing solar panels will not affect your company operating as normal.

The Business Case

Payback and Returns

A commercial solar installation can offer a typical investment payback from 3 years onwards. The payback period depends on site electricity consumption and the retail price of electricity both now and anticipated in the future. If you provide us with a good estimate of your electricity usage and costs, then we can overlay this with the expected output of the solar PV system to determine how much of the solar energy you are likely to use. It is the combination of energy consumption profile and solar PV output that determines how useful a solar energy system will be to your school.

PV systems require little maintenance besides regular monitoring and replacement of inverters (5-10 years). In general, PV panels are self-cleaning unless your office building is in an area that suffers from high dust levels, leaf fall etc.
