Commercial Solar Panels

Why Use Absolute for Commercial Solar?


We specialise in the design, supply, maintenance and installation of commercial solar panel photovoltaic systems, solar power and solar farms for increased energy efficiency. We have worked with businesses in all sectors including agricultural, industrial, public sector, private sector. As well as this we have worked with solar farm investment and solar roofs and solar car parks.

A photovoltaic commercial solar panels 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, highly trained delivery teams and expert technicians in constructing our solar solutions. This is one reason why Absolute is one of Scotland and the UK’s longest established MCS registered renewable and alternative energy management companies.

We have a wealth of experience with commercial solar panels installations, solar farm knowledge and solar panel technical experience. We are a company that has been delivering affordable renewable energy solutions in Scotland for nearly two decades.


Why Install Commercial Solar PV?

There are many benefits to installing solar panels including:

  1. Reduce electricity consumption by generating onsite energy
  2. Protect the companies energy security by being less reliant on fossil fuels
  3. Improve the green image and identity of the company
  4. Create an additional index-linked guaranteed income from the FIT and export tariff payments


Cutting the Cost of Commercial Panel Installation

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, it enables companies to reduce energy costs and reliance on fossil fuels. Absolute solar energy 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.

Not sure if you have the setup to install commercial solar panels? At Absolute Solar & Wind, we provide solar panel consultations and feasibility checks to investigate the best sites for development. 


Offsetting your Solar Electricity System

Solar Photovoltaic cells convert the sun’s light into usable green energy. Absolute solar panel systems are efficient renewable energy solutions to help power your business and they can provide a terrific return on investment. More and more companies are looking for ways to be more environmentally sustainable which is why solar energy is becoming one of Scotland’s most popular forms of renewable energy. See the ways we can help below.



Solar Farms

Solar Farms are becoming ever more popular as a solution for the production of clean energy. They are able to produce energy without generating any noise or harmful emissions and in some cases, if they are well-positioned, they might not even be visible. Commercial solar power is becoming a great source for creating a more ethical green environment and the land can be multi-purposed to allow sheep grazing space.

Absolute can offer a turnkey solution for solar farm projects. Whether you want the system built 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:

  1. Land area between 5-25 acres
  2. You own the land
  3. Within around 3km of a 33kV or 11kV line (we can check this for you)
  4. Free from shading
  5. Fairly flat and rock free

Agricultural Sector

Commercial Solar Panels 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 most.

Absolute have carried out several Commercial Solar Panels 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 of working on installations in 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 working for them.

Industrial Solar

Under the pressure of rising energy costs, more industrial organisations are seeking avenues to reduce overheads and/or generate new revenue streams. And many are turning to solar industrial PV as their solution. Solar industrial solutions are a great way of reducing your company’s reliance on fossil fuels. They can also lower overheads, revenue streams and improve your company’s social and green image.

Absolute take a consultative approach analysing your company energy usage and available roof space. This gives you several solar industrial options that best suit your company’s needs.

Commercial Solar Carports

Long has 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. A continued rise in electricity costs and no land costs makes car parks 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 the underside of the carport. More localised lighting equals more cost-efficiency which creates a safer environment.

Benefits of the Car Park solution which cannot be factored in are the increased corporate social responsibility factors. Your company will be visionary, forward-thinking and will underpin its desires to take action on carbon emissions.

Tesla Powerpack

The ability to store energy generated by wind, solar and other technologies is key to 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 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:

LED Lighting

Switching to LED lighting in your premises can help significantly cut your electricity spend. LED Lighting consumes up to 90% less power than incandescent bulbs along with having a lifespan of up to 60,000 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. LED lighting will 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 spending.

District Heating Systems

A district heating scheme 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
