Solar Photovoltaic (Solar PV)

WHAT IS SOLAR PV?

Solar, simply put is power obtained by harnessing the energy of the suns rays. The use of Solar Photovoltaic (Solar PV) as an energy solution has snowballed over the last few years. The increasing number of businesses using Solar technologies in their energy systems has spurred technological advances in performance, reduced costs and complimentary energy-saving technologies.

THE BENEFITS

There are many advantages to installing Solar in your business energy mix, including improved fuel security and energy price stability. Generating your energy with a Solar PV system will reduce your reliance on unstable energy prices and supplies. Utilising the energy you produce means you will pay less for your energy than from a utility and in essence, you become your energy producer. Solar PV systems can generate a payback as quickly as 5 to 6 years. And with the increasing research and development into Solar technologies such as energy storage, the potential for Solar technology is enormous for the future.

THE TECHY BIT

In simple terms, there are two parts to a Solar PV system. The first part, the PV panels or Photovoltaic Modules sit on your roof or are mounted on a system on the ground. These are linked to an inverter and connected to the electrical system of your office or factory. Whenever it is daylight outside, the Solar PV panels generate a direct electric current (DC) which the electrical system converts into an (AC) current via the inverter. The great news is that this electricity can then be directly used by the electrical appliances in your building, after which any surplus electricity generated is fed back to the grid.

HOW WE DO IT

Following a site visit to see where your Solar PV system would be best installed, our experienced in- house team will design and select the highest quality products available in the industry. We only install proven solar panel and inverter technology from Tier 1 suppliers to make sure your investment maximises the 20-year feed-in tariff revenue.We will then put together a thorough business case, outlining the technology options available, benefits to the company and costs, and if you are eligible as a business, we will also assist you with Carbon Trust funding options to offer you the most appropriate system for your needs and budget.

IT’S CLEAN, IT’S RELIABLE, IT’S COST EFFECTIVE.
