Consultants, suppliers & installers of Solar PV

Commercial & Agricultural Solar PV

Electricity prices are rising fast and it seems likely that they will continue to do so, perhaps at an even faster pace. The situation is made more serious because oil supplies are threatened by instability in the Middle East -  no one knows how long the current slump in oil prices will last - and our electricity supplies are threatened by indecisive government energy policy.

So we should all be looking for ways to secure our electricity supplies and fix our electricity prices.

And that is exactly what Solar PV does.


Why Solar PV?

Solar PV is the perfect way to reduce your energy bills, cut CO2 emissions, and ensure that at least part of your electricity requirements will be met whatever is happening to the grid.

Installing a Solar PV system allows you to take control of your energy requirements with the following benefits:

See the Photos
  • Receive a substantial income from the Feed-in Tariff (FiT) just for generating electricity

  • The generous government FiT provides a 20-year, guaranteed, index-linked income stream

  • Consume 100% of the electricity you generate free of charge

  • Fix the price of a significant proportion of your electricity costs and thereby hedge against rising energy prices

  • Cut your carbon emissions, lowering green taxes and demonstrating your green credentials

  • Sell any excess power you don’t use to earn additional income

  • The Return on Investment including FiT income, energy savings and export payments is likely to be between 10 &15% and can be higher pre-tax over 20-years

  • The income from the Feed-in Tariff alone offers a 10%+ return on your investment

  • Future-proof your business



Investment & Returns

The table below gives a guide to the price for a complete installation based on the number of panels. These prices are intended to be a guide only, based on a simple installation on a straightforward roof. Clearly costs will increase with the level of complexity. Otherwise the prices shown are an all-inclusive price excluding VAT.

We can confirm all the details following a no obligation onsite survey and thereafter produce a full proposal including all the financial projections including income, savings and payback period.

* Potential return is pre-tax and before Capital Allowances

Solar panels will give the best yield if set between 35-40 degrees facing south. However, we have many successful installations performing well on an east/west axis; the reduction in production efficiency is as little 15% in most cases.

The returns from a solar PV system come from three sources:

  • The Generation Tariff (an element of the Feed-in Tariff) – you get paid to generate electricity. For every unit of electricity you generate you get paid a fixed amount. The payment usually comes from your electricity supplier, it is guaranteed by government for 20 years and is RPI-linked.

  • Savings – you are allowed to consume, free of charge, every unit of electricity you generate. For every unit of free electricity you consume there is a saving of the price you would otherwise have paid to your supplier.

  • The Export Tariff – if you are unable to consume all of the electricity you generate you can export all of the excess back to the grid and receive a payment for it.

The Feed-in Tariff rates are reviewed by government quarterly - for the latest, take a look at our FITS for businesses page. 

Business revenue generated by the Feed-in Tariff is subject to tax. Capital Allowances are usually available for the SolarPV system capital cost.

You will need an EPC (Energy Performance Certificate) Level D in order to claim the Feed-in Tariff, which we can organise for you.
