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.


solar panel install site survey

Site Survey

Once we have completed an initial conversation with you and have a better understanding of what your business needs, we conduct a site survey to identify any obstacles that need to be overcome.  With the use of aerial drone surveys and 3D modelling software that can calculate projected daylight yields, we can conduct a site survey to assess what levels of daylight your commercial premises can expect, what access restrictions there are on site and what condition your existing roofing system is in.

Provisional Design & Pricing / Client Approval

Once we have completed the site survey, we can then process this to provide you with a provisional design and price for your commercial solar panel install. Depending on a variety of factors, there may be amendments required during this design phase which we can work through.  Once you are happy with the design/layout and predicted solar energy projections for the solar panel installation, we can proceed forwards.

structural assessment for solar panel installation

Structural Assessment

Before we can proceed with the installation of solar panels to your commercial premises, we need to ensure that your existing roof structure can take the additional weight of newly fitted solar panels.  For this, we have to conduct a structural assessment of your roof. While there is some variation in weight between different brands of solar panel, a standard 60 cell solar panel can weigh between 18-20kg.  While modern solar panels are becoming lighter and more efficient, this extra weight still needs to be within the structural limits of the roof.

Final Design & Price/ Contract Signing

Once you have confirmed the design/layout for the installation and we have completed the structural assessment, as long as there has been no ‘nasty surprises’, we will be able to confirm the final specifications and importantly, how much the commercial solar panel installation will cost. If you are happy to proceed, we can sign the final contract and move on to installing the new solar panel system.

Project Completion

Once the project has been completed, you can begin to enjoy the financial savings of solar generated green energy. But while the installation work is now complete, we are not going anywhere. At Low Energy Services, we pride ourselves on offering a high quality aftercare service to give your business peace of mind.

Photovoltaic systems have generally low maintenance requirements, however with yearly maintenance, we can help your business to reduce faults and system downtime while maximising the power output yield of your newly installed solar panels for many years to come.

  • Check & Clean Inverter – functions
  • Check Inverter – connections
  • Voltage & Current of Full System

An annual service can improve system output by up to 30% and will keep you in line with your solar panel manufacturers warranty requirements.

Moving to green energy generated by solar panel installations for your commercial business has huge potential savings you can make on energy bills; and all by putting your unused roof space to good use.

Solar panels for commercial purposes can save your business money on their energy bills while presenting opportunities to sell surplus power back to the national grid and giving your business financial stability in the ever chaotic energy market. At Low Energy Services, we are a leading commercial solar panel installer covering Scotland and the North of England. We have worked with commercial businesses big and small ranging from office building solar panel installs to multi site systems for well known fast food chains.

Solar PV Power Purchase Agreements

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. And 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.
