How Can My Business or Home Benefit From Solar PV Panel Installation?

You can expect a number of benefits when you choose to install a Solar PV System for your business or agricultural premises. We have listed the major benefits of Solar Panel installation below:

    • You are able to power your premises or property with solar power. This is one of the greenest energy sources on the planet which reduces your environmental impact and allows you to save money on energy bills. By generating your own power.

    • You are able to become less dependent on the national grid or other power suppliers. It’s unlikely that you are able to power an entire business or agricultural operation solely from solar power but this depends on the size of your property as well as the number of solar panels you are able to install and the amount of power you use per year.

    • There are grants available which allow you to offset the financial risk or investment of installing solar panels. Solar panels are also a lot more affordable than in the past which is a key factor in why they are becoming more and more popular!

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) About Solar Panel Installation & Installers

On average Belfast receives 1234.5 sunlight hours per year, making it a great place for you to consider solar panel installation for your business or agricultural premises. We can also advise you on the suitability of your property for solar panel installation.

One of the greatest benefits of commercial PV systems is the substantial cost savings. If you operate industrial PV panels, you can sell the excess energy to the utility companies for incurring profits.

For buildings with flat roofs – there are some considerations that need to be made but it is still possible to install solar panels on a flat roof. The considerations are the obstacles that may be present on the roof but we can advise you on this. Solar panels work best when they are on a south-facing roof but can also work effectively when facing east or west. Solar panels can also be installed on the ground around your business or agricultural premises. We can advise you on the eligibility of your property for solar panel installation.

We had been considering the installation of Solar PV for quite a while. I visited many commercial premises that had installed solar panels to research the process, before deciding on Alternative Energy as our provider. Jerome, Ronan and their team did a top class job of designing, installing and commissioning our system, with minimum disruption to the every day running of our factory. All the required paperwork and forms were completed for our ESB Network connection and our SEAI grant application. Our phone app allows us to monitor our usage and get live information of solar production. I am now looking at installing a second system on another premises and plan on using Jerome and Ronan once again. Their standard of workmanship is exemplary and I would have no hesitation in recommending Alternative Energy as a solar provider. Mark Birnie Director Shackletons Milling.

The guys were recommended to me by a friend. Price was good and they were lovely to deal with. I'm not usually one for leaving reviews but they went the extra mile so I thought it was only fair. We actually had a faulty inverter out of the box, the guys took up the case with the manufacturer and got us a replacement fitted within a week, so fair play.

Excellent service and excellent value for money. They came on the planned date and installed, tested and commissioned the solar PV panel system over two days. Both the roofing team and the electricians carried out their work in a professional manner. They answered and explained any questions I asked, they discussed with me beforehand what they would do, they explained how the system operates and what apps I needed to download and they tidied up fully when they were finished. I would have no hesitation in recommending Alternative Energy to anyone based on their excellent service and professionalism.
