Commercial Solar

Harvest have installed solar PV on a commercial scale throughout the UK. We have also been very successful in obtaining finance for many of our customers to purchase their systems.

How will solar panels work for my business?

Commercial solar is a great way of protecting your business against rising energy costs, while illustrating green credentials. 

Some of the main factors to consider are listed below:

  • Existing bills ( this will determine what size system is needed to satisfy demand).
  • What time of day and time of year is the energy needed most. ( this will assist in the design and orientation of the system).
  • Planning permission.
  • District Network Permission.
  • Access and walkways for maintenance.
  • Guarantees and warrantees.

Further considerations

There are many other factors to consider in order to maximise the space on your roof. These will be covered in a no obligation free quotation by Harvest. The consultation will detail and justify:

  • The design (detailed scale drawing) and orientation. 
  • Paybacks on the government feed in tariff scheme.
  • Savings to electricity bills.
  • Full cost of installation with no hidden extras.
  • Guarantees and warranties.

How we work commercially

Harvest will assist every step of the way, from planning right through to application for the feed in tariff.

Feed-In Tariffs (FIT’s) were introduced on 1 April 2010 and replaced UK government grants as the main financial incentive to encourage uptake of renewable electricity-generating technologies. Once a qualifying renewable technology is installed you are paid a set rate for each unit (or kWh) of electricity you generate. Once generated it is then used to satisfy any demand there may be in the building, while Solar is serving demand there is less consumption from the grid, saving you money. Any electricity you don’t use is exported back to the grid for an additional rate.

The feed in tariff varies depending on the size of the system that you choose. We will offer you the options and illustrate the various levels of tariff available and advise on what size system brings the best return.
