Commercial Solar – We specialise in the design, supply, maintenance and installation of commercial Solar PV systems, solar power and solar farms for increased energy efficiency. We have worked with businesses in all sectors from Agricultural to Industrial, Public Sector, Private Sector as well as with Solar Farm Investment and Solar Roofs and Solar Car Parks.
A photovoltaic system from Absolute includes an array of solar panels, an inverter, roof mounting or ground mounting the system and interconnecting wiring.
We use high-quality materials and highly trained delivery teams and technicians which is why Absolute is one of Scotland and the UKs longest established MCS registered renewable and alternative energy management companies.
With a wealth of commercial solar photovoltaic installations, Solar Farm knowledge and Solar Panel technical experience; we are a company who has been delivering cheap electricity through our renewable energy installations in Scotland for nearly two decades.
Why Install Solar PV?
- Reduce electricity consumption by generating onsite energy
- Protect the companies energy security by being less reliant on fossil fuels
- Improve the green image and identity of the company
- Create an additional index linked guaranteed income from the FIT and export tariff payments
Cutting the Cost of Panel Installation
As the cost of manufacturing commercial solar panels is decreasing and as the technology advances further each solar photovoltaic cell generates more and more solar electricity during daylight hours, this is why solar works so well for businesses over time, enabling companies to reduce energy costs and reliance on fossil fuels today. Solar also provides free electricity during business hours. On top of this you will also be paid a premium for every unit of energy you generate, a bonus for any that are exported. This “Feed in” tariff enables your business to offset the cost of the initial solar power installation over time.
Offsetting your Solar Electricity System
Solar Photovoltaic cells convert the sun’s light into usable green energy. Installing a Solar Panel System from Absolute for your company or business is a great idea and can provide a terrific return on investment, that’s why Solar is becoming one of Scotland’s most popular forms of renewable energy. See the ways we can help below.
Solar Farms are becoming ever more popular as a solution for the production of clean energy. Producing energy while not generating any noise or smell and often not visible if well sighted, Solar farms are becoming a great source for creating an ethical safe return on investment. Often the land can still be used for sheep grazing.
Absolute can offer a turnkey solution for solar farm projects. Whether you want the system built out for your own investment, or simply want to lease your land for a rental income we can manage the project from start to finish.
We are currently looking for solar farm sites to develop development with an investor, if you would be interested and meet the below criteria please contact us:
- Land area between 5-25 acres
- You own the land
- Within around 3km of a 33kV or 11kV line (we can check this for you)
- Free from shading
- Fairly flat and rock free
Commercial Solar PV is very popular in the farming sector and makes up a huge portion of our installs. Solar creates free electricity when the sun is up; this works well with a lot of dairy and chicken farms in particular, generating energy when your farm needs it.
Absolute have carried out several Solar PV installations in this sector across the country. Depending on whether you are a dairy, chicken, livestock or crop farmer will ultimately underpin how much energy you use, and the manner in which you use it.
Through our experience working closely in this area and having installed systems for all these farming sectors, we can help you best understand the return on investment and what system will be most suitable for you. We can also put you in touch with similar farms we have done to see how their system is doing for them.
Absolute offer a full design and consultancy service, experience in securing planning and grid connection permissions, plus dedicated project management to ensure your project comes in on budget and hits every milestone. We’re experienced in dealing with high-profile projects and are fully accredited. We also work to stringent health and safety standards as part of our ISO Quality Management certification.
Absolute has worked as both a contractor and subcontractor for authorities across the country and hold all relevant insurances and certification to carry out work in this sector.
Under the pressure of continuing rising energy costs, more industrial organisations are seeking avenues to reduce overheads and/or generate new revenue streams. And many are turning to Solar PV. This is a great way of reducing your company’s reliance on fossil fuels, lower overheads and add a revenue stream all while improving the companies social and green image.
Absolute take a consultative approach analysing your company energy usage and available roof space to give you several options that best suits your company’s needs.
Long been utilised in central Europe, this solution becomes more attractive to the UK market as we see the price of other components, panels & inverters, decrease. With the continued rise in electricity costs and no land costs, car parks are an excellent location for Solar PV arrays.
The solar carport solution also offers a range of added benefits
- Increased revenue stream utilising Car Port for increased advertisement banners/areas
- Electrical Vehicle charge points, getting ready for the new generation of motor vehicles
- Shelter cars/customers from the elements – improving parking experience
- Take away tall expensive to run light lamps by installing LED lighting on underside of carport, more localised lighting – more cost effective to run, creates a safer environment
The benefits of the Car Park solution which cannot be factored in are the increased corporate social responsibility factors. Your company would be viewed as visionary, forward thinking while also underpinning its desires to take action at carbon emissions.
Finding the right solution
to meet your needs
The ability to storage energy generated by wind, solar and other technologies is key to an energy efficient premises.
We are delighted to be able to provide, install and maintain Tesla Powerpack, the state of the art battery system designed for efficiency and long life.
Powerpack supports a host of applications that offer commercial consumers and energy providers greater control, efficiency and reliability.
The system scales to the space, power and energy requirements of any site, from small commercial businesses to regional utilities. It can be configured in various arrangements, offering far more modularity than competing models.
We can also supply and install:
Switching to LED lighting in your premises can help significantly cut your electricity spend. Not only do they consume up to 90% less power than incandescent bulbs, but they have a lifespan of up to 60,000 hours compared to 1,500 hours. This means they will need to be replaced far less often, further cutting purchasing and maintenance costs.
Generating virtually no heat, LED lighting is safe, cutting the risk of overheating and fires. They are also designed to withstand extreme temperatures and vibrations.
Used as part of a wider energy saving strategy, LED lighting can substantially help in reducing energy consumption and reducing spend.
District Heating Systems
A district heating schemes is a system for distributing heat generated in a central location for residential and commercial heating requirements such as space heating and water heating. In the right location, it is an ideal investment for housing associations and local authorities.
We have experience in planning, installing and maintaining district heating systems.
