COMMERCIAL SOLAR PANELS FAQS

If you cannot find an answer to your question, then contact us today for a free consultation.

Do I need planning permission in the UK to install commercial solar panels?

In most cases, you will need planning permission to install commercial solar panels on a building if the capacity for electricity generation across the whole of your site exceeds 1 megawatt (1 MW). However, there are some exceptions where you may be able to install solar panels without planning permission under Permitted Development rights. These exceptions include:

  • If the solar panels are to be installed on a roof that is not visible from a road or a public place.
  • If the solar panels are to be installed on a building that is not in a conservation area, National Park or Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
  • If the combined area of the solar panels is less than or equal to either 9 square meters on a roof that slopes or 16 square meters on a flat roof.
  • If the solar panels do not project more than 200 millimeters from the roof surface.
  • It is recommended to check with your local planning authority to confirm if planning permission is required for your specific installation.
What is the best location for commercial solar panels?

The best location for commercial solar panels is a location that receives maximum exposure to the sun throughout the day. Some factors to consider when determining the ideal location for commercial solar panels include:

  • Latitude: The closer a location is to the equator, the more direct sunlight it will receive.
  • Azimuth: The azimuth, or direction, that the panels are facing also affects the amount of sunlight they receive. Panels facing south receive the most sunlight in the Northern Hemisphere, while panels facing north receive the most sunlight in the Southern Hemisphere.
  • Tilt angle: The tilt angle of the panels affects the amount of sunlight they receive. In general, panels should be angled at an angle equal to the latitude of the location, plus 15 degrees.
  • Shade: Shade from trees, buildings, or other structures can reduce the amount of sunlight that reaches the panels, so it’s important to avoid shading.
  • Climate: Cloud cover and rainfall patterns can also affect the amount of sunlight received by solar panels, so it’s important to consider these factors when choosing a location.
  • Accessibility: Access to the panels for maintenance and repair is also important, so the location should be easily accessible.
Do I need battery storage for commercial solar panels?

Commercial battery storage is not a requirement for solar panels, but it can be a useful addition in some cases. Battery storage allows you to store the excess energy generated by the solar panels during the day for use during periods of low sunlight or at night. This can help to increase the overall efficiency and cost-effectiveness of your business solar panel system.

Whether or not you need battery storage will depend on several factors, including:

  • Energy usage patterns: If your energy usage peaks during periods when the sun is shining, you may not need battery storage. However, if your energy usage peaks during periods when the sun is not shining, then battery storage can help to reduce your reliance on grid-supplied energy.
  • Net metering: In some areas, you may be eligible for net metering, which allows you to receive credits for excess energy generated by your solar panels that are sent back to the grid. If you have net metering, you may not need a battery storage solution.
  • Energy independence: If you are interested in achieving energy independence, battery storage can help to ensure that you have a reliable source of energy for your business even when the sun is not shining.
  • Cost: The cost of battery storage can be a significant factor in deciding whether or not to add it to your commercial solar panel system. The cost of batteries has been decreasing over time, but it is still a significant investment for many businesses.

Ultimately, the decision to add battery storage to your commercial solar panel system will depend on your specific energy needs and goals. Contact Acen Solar for a free consultation today to find out if battery storage is a good solution for your business.

Are there any government incentives for installing solar panels?

Yes, there are several incentives in the UK for installing commercial solar panels. Some of the most notable incentives include:

  • The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI): This government-run scheme provides financial incentives to encourage the uptake of renewable heat technologies, including solar thermal panels.
  • The Feed-in Tariff (FIT): This scheme provides a guaranteed payment for each kilowatt-hour of electricity generated by your solar panels, as well as an additional payment for any excess energy that is exported back to the grid.
  • The Renewable Obligation (RO): This scheme requires energy suppliers to source a certain percentage of their energy from renewable sources, including solar energy.
  • The Business Energy Efficiency Tax Relief (BEETR): This scheme provides tax relief for businesses that invest in energy-saving technologies, including solar panels.
  • Capital Allowances: Companies can claim tax relief for capital expenditures, including the cost of installing solar panels, through the Annual Investment Allowance.

It is important to note that the availability and details of these incentives may change over time, so it is recommended to check with the relevant government agency, or your local authority or contact Acen Solar for the most up-to-date information.
