Solar PV

Commercial Solar PV

Solar Energy Systems use panels, which are often mounted to south facing roofs. The panels harness the radiant heat and light from the sun to create either electricity via Solar Photovoltaic panels (known as PV) or hot water via Solar Thermal panels. Both technologies produce significant financial savings for your business, as well as reducing your carbon footprint, and receiving payment for your energy.

At Ecosmart we can offer our commercial customers a range of Solar options. These can be installed anywhere from schools, hotels, offices to hospitals and hotels. We have experience in fitting solar systems from 4kw to 250kw commercial systems on factory roofs all the way up to a ground mounted megawatt system.

Solar PV, a photovoltaic system, works by converting energy from the sun into electricity.

This is often why solar panels are mounted onto roofs or on the ground, in a south facing direction, so they capture most of the sun’s energy. The stronger the sun’s energy the more electricity produced. Although they can still generate some electricity, even on a cloudy day.

Solar PV operates silently and without any moving parts, this means that minimal servicing and maintenance requirements. It is however recommended that the cells are cleaned twice yearly to work efficiently, and that the solar inverters are replaced every 10 years. Ecosmart provide a repairs service for any customers having issues with wiring, inverters or efficiency of the system. We can also help with the FIIT application.

At Ecosmart we offer a full Design, Supply, Installation and Maintenance service for all our Commercial customers. Following a site survey, we will present you with a quotation this will include, performance estimates, based on the location of the property and suns rays, size of system needed, based on the properties energy requirements, and predicted savings.




Why Solar ?
  • Free Energy from the sun
  • Can be combined with Heat Pumps to produce electricity and heating
  • No servicing or maintenance requirements
  • Solar Energy systems are durable, as they have no moving parts
  • Makes you independent of fuel prices
  • Can generate electricity even on a cloudy day
Benefits of Solar PV
  • Reduction on energy bills, because sunlight is free!
  • Less impact on the environment
  • Cost very little to maintain
  • Claim FIT (Feed in Tariff) payments for the next 25 years for the electricity generated.
  • You could receive two payments, one from the generation tariff, which is paid to you for every unit of electricity produced (whether you used it yourself or not) The second is an export tariff which applies to the electricity that you generate but do not use.
