Commercial Solar

Commercial Solar

There are significant benefits to be had from investing in solar energy, for businesses both industrial, large and small. With rising energy costs, putting your roof space to good use can be a sensible decision. Many commercial organisations have already realised the huge potential income stream available from solar energy. Simply by utilising the roof space on your commercial premises, agricultural buildings, factories, warehouses, schools or hospitals, you can install solar power generators and start generating solar energy.

Reasons To Switch To Solar
Cost savings
Solar panels generate free, green electricity during daytime hours that can be used on site, lowering your business demand for energy from the grid and potentially saving thousands of pounds on energy bills. 
Solar income
Ideally you would use all the solar power onsite, however any surplus power can be sold to the grid.  
Financial stability
With energy prices predicted to sharply rise in the next 10 years, commercial solar panels allow you to effectively forward buy your electricity at a set price, making financial forecasting much easier. 
Low risk investment
Solar PV is a reliable and safe investment vehicle that provides returns exceeding those of traditional low risk financial products.  
Energy security
With the grid currently struggling to generate significant electricity supply to meet the UK’s growing energy demands, and the government’s recent introduction of mandatory energy audits for large businesses via the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) and possible future energy usage regulation, independent solar installations are and excellent backup measure. 
Lower carbon footprint
Generating your own solar energy will significantly reduce your carbon footprint, increase your company’s sustainable credentials, and improve your business reputation.  

Planning Permission


The good news is that if planning permission does need to be sorted, we can provide full assistance or complete applications on your behalf to ensure the process is as quick and easy as possible.

However, there are important limits and conditions that must be met in order to benefit from these permitted development rights, including:

  • A roof mounted solar installation must not protrude more than 200mm, unless it is a flat roof installation where the solar PV must be less than 1m above the highest part of the flat roof.
  • A roof mounted solar installation must be further than 1m away from the edge of the roof or wall joint. For AONB or similarly restricted locations, the panels must not be on the roof slope or wall facing the road.
  • Solar installations should be sited so as to minimise their effect on the external appearance of the property and the amenity of the area, while unused equipment should be removed as soon as possible.

Planning permission will be required if your solar PV system is intended for installation on a listed building or a site designated as a scheduled ancient monument or world heritage site.

UK Energi will be on hand to advise on any planning requirements for small, large or bespoke installations. If permission does needs to be sought, we can provide full assistance in completing applications and supplying any information requested by the local planning authority to ensure the process is as quick and easy as possible.
