Big, small and everything in-between

More and more companies. businesses, schools, Village halls and farmers are realising the financial benefits just keep getting better especially as world solar PV prices continue to come down.

Then there is the impact on your Carbon Footprint and environmental credentials which has become important to all companies wanting to compete in our environmentally conscious marketplace.

Key questions to ask when considering if solar PV is right for you are:
  • Do you own or have a long lease on your buildings?
  • Is the cost of electricity an important cost to your business?
  • Have you got suitable roofs? You don’t have to face South on a low pitch roof to get a good return. Ask us for free advice.
  • Will your roof need replacing in the next 20-30 years?
  • No planning permission is needed for roof mounted installations.
  • Ground mounted panels, subject to planning permission, also make sense for high consumption sites.
