Solar power offers a sustainable and cost-effective solution for renewable energy. With clean electricity that offsets existing consumption and reduces your reliance on the grid, you can lower your energy costs and contribute to a greener future.

By installing solar panels on your business’s existing infrastructure, such as a roof, car park, or unused land, and complementing them with battery storage, you can not only reduce your energy bills but also potentially create a new revenue stream by trading any excess energy back to the grid.

Our company provides a wide range of solutions for businesses that are seeking to implement a renewable, sustainable, and cost-effective strategy to secure their energy requirements. With our solutions, you can minimize your carbon footprint and contribute to a cleaner planet while also realizing significant cost savings.

Roof-Mounted Solar PV

Maximise the potential of your rooftop space with our commercial roof-mounted solar PV systems. This renewable energy solution captures sunlight and converts it into electricity using photovoltaic (PV) technology. Solar panels are directly installed on the roofs of commercial and industrial buildings. These panels consist of solar cells that produce electricity when exposed to sunlight, securely attached using specialised mounting systems. As sunlight hits the panels, they transform it into clean electricity. This sustainable energy can power your business, cutting down electricity costs and benefiting the environment. Roof-mounted solar PV is a smart option for utilising roof space effectively and generating eco-friendly electricity.

Ground-Mounted Solar PV

Do you have unused land that could be ideal for a ground-mounted solar installation?

Ground-mounted commercial solar installations in the UK provide significant benefits. They offer scalability, making them perfect for high energy needs. Ground-mounted systems are often simpler to maintain and clean, enhancing energy production. Additionally, they eliminate the need for rooftop space and can be strategically placed for optimal sunlight exposure. This versatility, combined with potential energy cost savings and a lower carbon footprint, makes ground-mounted solar an appealing option for businesses aiming to boost sustainability and secure long-term financial gains.

Commercial Solar Overclad

If you’re considering replacing your roof, we offer an optimal solar solution for you. When facing the challenge of an old or leaking commercial roof in need of replacement, you have three choices: full roof replacement, overcladding, or the innovative option of overcladding combined with solar integration. Overcladding with solar not only revitalises your roof but also offsets its cost through energy generation. We have partnered with an award-winning company who’s product is known for its top fire and wind ratings, a patented interlocking design, and its roots as a UK-based company dedicated to quality. With translucent panels for natural light and the unique feature of the panels serving as the roof itself, this cutting-edge solution can greatly enhance your EPC (Energy Performance Certificate) rating while providing sustainable energy solutions.

Propery Developers

Integrating solar PV systems into the construction process offers distinct advantages to house builders and property developers. By installing in-roof solar solutions during the build stages, you can seamlessly incorporate these energy-efficient technologies into the property’s design at usually no extra cost to standard roofing. This not only enhances the aesthetics of the building but also reduces installation complexities and costs. This approach not only enhances the desirability of your properties but also improves energy efficiency, contributing to a greener future and potentially increasing the overall value of your development.

Renewables such as Solar PV are now a legal obligation for new builds as part of the SAP10 procedure.

Testimonials

“SPS have just installed new solar panels at the National Mining Museum Scotland in Newtongrange. They provided an excellent service and very patient with us dealing with planning permission and building warrant. They were very helpful providing all the information for the installation. Got on great with the tram, always helpful and friendly.”

Ritchie Poole

Facilities Manager at National Mining Museum Scotland

“When you consider the benefits I’m getting, you have to wonder why every business isn’t installing solar. The return on investment with solar is phenomenal. The reasonable cost of the install and the significant levels of power generated contribute to lowering our overall energy cost. This means our system will be paid off quickly making a notable impact on our bottom-line profitability. Tony and Moe provide an end-to-end solar solution for businesses unmatched by others. From our initial enquiry, installation, questions throughout and follow up, they were there every step of the way making the whole process very simple. I am now working with them on other properties and they’re currently looking into an EV charging solution for us. I highly recommend the SPS microgrids team for all your renewable energy needs.”

Mick Thorburn

Frequently Asked Questions

The amount of money your organisation can save with a commercial solar power system varies based on several factors, including the system’s size, location, energy consumption, and local solar incentives. On average, businesses can expect to save thousands of pounds annually on energy bills by generating their electricity from the sun. Additionally, commercial solar systems often offer attractive returns on investment, typically paying for themselves within a few years and providing long-term savings throughout their lifespan. To determine the specific savings potential for your organisation, it’s best to consult with one of our team members who can conduct a thorough assessment based on your unique circumstances and energy needs.

Assessing the suitability of your building or site for commercial solar is crucial. Factors like roof condition, orientation, available space, local regulations, energy consumption, budget, and environmental goals all play a part. SPS Microgrids offers a comprehensive assessment for both your building and business suitability.

Determining the right size of a solar system for your business depends on various factors, including your energy consumption, available roof space, budget, and energy goals. SPS Microgrids can help you determine the ideal size for your commercial solar system.

Many businesses operate primarily during daylight hours and may use the energy generated by their solar panels effectively. However, there are exceptions to this rule. If your business has a sufficiently large rooftop solar installation that generates surplus electricity beyond your immediate needs, and if your operational hours extend beyond the typical 9-5 timeframe, then investing in a solar battery becomes a viable option. The decision ultimately hinges on your specific energy demands and usage patterns.

In most cases, you do not need planning permission for commercial solar panel installations in the UK, as they typically fall under the category of permitted development. However, there are some exceptions and considerations. For instance, if your building is located in a conservation area, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), or a listed building, additional permissions may be required. It’s essential to check with your local planning authority or consult a professional installer to ensure compliance with regulations in your specific location. When it comes to larger-scale solar installations like ground-mounted solar farms, the planning process becomes more complex. Establishing a solar farm often involves submitting a detailed planning application to the local planning authority. They assess factors such as visual impact, ecological considerations, and local objections before granting permission. The specific requirements for solar farms can vary depending on the location and size of the proposed installation. Therefore, it’s crucial to engage with local authorities and seek professional guidance to navigate the planning process effectively.
