Reduce Your Businesses Carbon Footprint
Depending on the size of the commercial installation, you will be required to send an application to the local District Network Operator (DNO). The DNO is the owner and operator of the power lines and infrastructure that connect your property to the national grid. This can take up to 11 weeks to be granted.
DNO requires notification within 28 days of commission when the installation is under 16A per phase, this includes:
- Single phase supply: 3.68kW
- Twin phase supply: 8kWp
- Three-phase supply: 11.04kWp
If your installation is smaller than 3.68kWp, you will not be required to notify your DNO.

Commercial Solar Panel Installation
Go Greener. Become more Sustainable. Reduce Carbon Emissions
Start Generating Your Own Electricity
Solar Photovoltaic (Solar PV) Panels are paving the way to a green future. Start reducing your business’s carbon emissions and save money on energy bills through solar PV panel installation.
Future-Proof Yourself Against Ever-Increasing Energy Bills
Once you have invested in Solar Photovoltaic Panels (Solar PV) you will become your own power station, turning daylight into power to use within the business. With the majority of businesses using electricity during sunlight hours (08:00 – 17:00), it’s no surprise that solar PV is designed to fill your electricity demands.
By looking at the amount of electricity usage each day, week or month by a business will determine the potential demand for the Solar PV Array.
Ground And Roof-Mounted Solar PV Arrays Installed
We supply solar panels suitable for low light conditions, so even on cloudy days, you can reap the rewards solar PV panels offer. The average electricity generated is based on the size of the installation and yearly direct sunlight during daylight hours.
Solar panels are best installed in open areas free from overhanging shadows with direct exposure to sunlight. If you are powering your commercial premise, maximising space is essential and having them roof-mounted will allow you to do exactly this. What you may lose in sun maximisation, you gain in available land space.
If you do have a lot of space to work with, ground-mounted solar panels will allow you to position it in the best possible way to get the most from the sun.
Questions To Help You Decide On Commercial Solar PV
How does Solar PV work?
Solar PV generates electricity from photons, which come from sun radiation that penetrates clouds. Solar panels work best in sunny environments with direct sunlight, however, even if you are in a cloudy environment, you can still benefit from solar PV panels; with some solar panels being designed specifically to work well in low light conditions with thin cloud cover.
How can you get the most out of solar panels?
Solar arrays generate the most electricity when exposed to direct sunlight. The amount will decrease as more clouds appear and their thickness of them increases; with electricity being near impossible when covered by snow or thick storm clouds.
In the UK you would be recommended to install solar panels that can maximise the electricity from lowlight conditions.
Is the UK at solar panel capacity?
In most of the UK, electricity cables were not designed to have electricity travelling back down the lines. Because of this, the local DNO may restrict the amount you can send back to the grid as trips could create power cuts throughout the area.
In some places in the UK, especially across the south coast, the limit on solar panels has reached capacity, preventing any further installations of solar PV. The UK is upgrading the cable network to allow more installations of solar PV. Transformers can be upgraded, allowing you to increase the size of a solar PV array to meet demand.
