  • Is our roof suitable for solar panels?
    At the start of each project we will visit the site to meet with you and conduct a detailed feasibility study which will identify the best potential rooftops for solar development.
  • How will the project construction affect our business?
    We will endeavour to collaborate to create an installation program that causes minimum disruption to your business. Depending on the final site size installation typically takes up to 2-6 weeks.
  • What happens if the solar PV system breaks down or develops a fault?
    We are responsible for the operation and maintenance of the plant throughout the project life-cycle. In the event of a fault we will ensure the appropriate team is in place to rectify the fault returning the plant to full production.
  • What happens if we move or sell our property?
    If you move or sell your property there are 2 options. Either you can novate the agreement to the new occupant of the property or pay a buyout fee.
  • What happens when there is no sunlight?
    As part of the PPA, you only pay for the energy supplied. Solar technology is becoming increasingly efficient to continue generating on days where there is little sunlight.
  • How are solar panels fixed to my roof? Will they cause damage?
    There are various methods of fixing the panels to rooftop spaces including methods where the roof does not require penetration. Following site assessment and detailed design the final fixing method will be decided to best suit the needs of your business operation.
  • What happens at the end of the fixed PPA term?
    At the end of the PPA agreement, the entire system will be transferred to your business for £1. At this stage the plant will still hold value and be operational for up to 10 years.
  • Do I need to wait until my existing energy contract ends before switching?
    No, you can generally start receiving your Solar PV energy immediately alongside your existing connection
  • How long does a PPA last?
    We can propose a variety of PPA terms ranging generally from 20 to 30 years in length.
