Solar Panel Installers in Perth

A leading commercial solar panel installer in Perth, Scotland

While the sun may not shine that brightly in Scotland, solar panels only need daylight to produce electricity. Which is why, in the picturesque city of Perth, Scotland, a quiet revolution is taking place on rooftops and open spaces across many businesses in the area. At Low Energy Services, we have become one of the leading solar installation companies in Scotland for businesses wanting to make the transition to renewable energy in the region.

By combining expertise, personalised solutions, and a dedication to empowering customers, we have solidified our position as a leader in the local renewable energy scene.

Solar Panels for Businesses

The process of solar panels is quite simple.  Solar Photovoltaic (PV) modules harness energy from the sun and generate this into electricity for use in and around your office building. Contrary to what many believe, Solar Panels do not require direct sunlight to generate electricity; they just need daylight to produce electricity. This means that a solar panel system can provide energy all year around, even on a cloudy day in Scotland. Solar Panels produce energy on site which can significantly reduce your businesses reliance on the national grid and the volatile and fluctuating energy prices that businesses up and down Scotland have seen so much of in recent years. By installing solar panels, your businesses can contribute to pushing the country towards net zero and relying on electricity produced using fossil fuels. And as this is self-generated it will lead to a decrease in your business energy costs too.

Does my business need planning permission for solar panels?

Solar panels are subject to normal building regulations whether fitted for business, domestic or commercial use. This includes checking whether your existing roof can support the extra loads of a solar panel installation. At Low Energy Services, we can carry this out for you as part of our initial site survey.

Beyond the existing building regulations, there are other things to consider including:

  • The new solar panel system should be installed so that it minimises its external appearance on the building.
  • The solar panel installation can not be higher than the building itself (this excludes any chimneys). The solar panel system cannot protrude more than 0.2 metres from the plane of the roof slope.
  • Planning permission may be required when you are intending of installing solar panels on a flat roof. This is because, due to the nature of the install, flat roofing solar panels need to be angled and therefore protrude beyond the 0.2 metres normally allowed.
  • Listed buildings commonly used for office use require consent and planning permission for solar panels to be fitted.

If your property is in a conservation zone, it may be difficult to gain permission for a solar panel installation though not impossible. We have installed solar panels for listed buildings and those in conservation areas in the past. Planning can be a complicated route but our solar panel installers can advise you on how best to proceed with permission applications.

Finance Options

Money doesn’t grow on trees and for some businesses, the initial cost of solar panels can put them off. There is however another options. At Low Energy Services, we provide something called a Solar PV Power Purchase Agreement.

Your business can take advantage of green energy immediately with a Solar Power Purchase Agreement so that you don’t have to invest in the initial cost of purchasing or fitting solar pv systems. Instead, you can commit, through a PPA, to buying discounted electricity directly from us and the solar panels we install at your commercial property at an agreed upon rate for a fixed length of time. We take care of the rest.

What is a PPA?

A PPA (Power Purchase Agreement) is a financial agreement which allows companies like yours to purchase solar energy generated electricity from companies like us with NO UPFRONT COSTS.

This allows you to take advantage of the many benefits of solar energy without having to invest in the initial purchasing and installation costs. It also means that you do not have to worry about the maintenance of the solar panel system as we take care of that as well.

questions about commercial solar installs

The next step

As a commercial solar panel installer, we try to keep the process of having solar panels and battery storage systems installed as simple as possible.

It can be tricky as there are so many variations ranging from planning to permission, access and what your existing roof structure is like.  No two commercial sites are the same just like no two solar panel install jobs are the same. But there is a process to working with Low Energy Services.

It starts with an Initial Conversation

Like with so many business decisions, hiring a solar panel installer and finding our the costs to install solar panels for your business all starts with a conversation. We speak directly to you to best understand what your business is looking for in green energy solutions.  For example, are solar panels on their own going to give your business the financial savings you may be looking for?  Or do you need to look at complimenting this with a battery storage system.  We have worked with a wide number of businesses across the UK who have solar panels, battery storage systems and EV charging installed so that they can maximise their green energy savings.

If you are considering having solar panels fitted for your business then the first step you need to make is to get in touch.  We can talk you through the process, what is involved, timelines and potential cost savings for your business. Whether you want to call us or email us is entirely up to you.  We work across the country so are happy to meet on site to assess your needs.  Simply click the button below to get the ball rolling.
