Top 6 Benefits of Solar PV for Your Business

Reduce energy costs by as much as 50%!

Reduce grid dependence and energy expenditure.

Financial Incentives

Benefit from tax advantages like the AIA, offsetting up to £100,000 of solar investments.
Full expensing for eligible machinery purchases from 01.04.2023 - 31.03.2026, including a 50% first-year allowance for integral features such as solar PV.
*Please obtain professional advice from an accountant /advisor regarding your situation.

Reputable Sustainability

Reduce emissions, enhancing your environmental, social and governance (ESG) profile.

Additional Revenue Stream

Earn from excess energy with the Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) (systems <5MW).

Property Value

Potential property value increase, crucial for non-domestic properties striving to meet Minimum Energy Efficiency Standard (MEES) regulations and achieve a minimum 'B' EPC rating by 2030.

Capacity Expansion

Maximize power by adding battery storage, avoiding costly upgrades on single-phase supplies nearing their 100-amp limit.
Combining with battery storage provides the extra power needed for high-demand processes such as milking, saving you from costly electricity supply upgrades.

How Do Solar Panels Work?

Solar electricity panels, also known as photovoltaic (PV) panels, are at the heart of solar energy systems. These remarkable devices work by harnessing the power of sunlight and converting it into electricity for your farm. Here’s how the process unfolds: 

Sunlight Absorption: Solar panels are comprised of numerous solar cells, each containing semiconductor materials like silicon. When sunlight strikes these cells, it excites electrons within the material.  

Electron Movement: As a result of this energy transfer, electrons become energized and begin to move within the semiconductor. This movement creates an electrical current. 

Generation of Direct Current (DC): The excited electrons flow in one direction, creating direct current (DC) electricity. This DC electricity is suitable for various applications but not for most standard electrical devices. 

Inverter Conversion: To make the electricity generated by solar panels usable in your farm’s electrical systems, an inverter is employed. The inverter transforms the DC electricity into alternating current (AC), which is what most of your appliances and machinery use. 

Farm Utilisation: The converted AC electricity can now power your farm’s operations. Any excess electricity not immediately used can be fed back into the grid, allowing you to earn through schemes like the Smart Export Guarantee (SEG). 

By installing solar panels on your farm, you’re essentially turning sunlight into a source of clean, sustainable, and cost-effective energy.
