Solar PV (Photovoltaic cell panels)

If your electricity bills are a profit-sapping burden on your business, your first solution should be company solar panels. Whilst it’s true that the more roof or ground space you have, the better, even a 4kW array can make a difference.

From day one, you’ll drive your energy costs down significantly, and the spin-off bonus is that you’ll slash your Carbon emissions at the same time.

IU Energy will –

  • Assess your site suitability for company solar panels
  • Accurately calculate your savings
  • Accurately calculate your ROI
  • Provide a fixed cost quote for installation
  • Design your array (roof or ground)
  • Install it
  • Maintain it

Return on Investment (ROI)

The company solar panels that IU Energy fits are guaranteed to last 25 years. Even at this time, they’ll still be generating at 80% of their original capacity.

With a typical ROI of between 4-6 years, your solar array will make very significant and real savings over their lifetime. Investment in Solar PV will almost certainly outperform money left in your bank.

Solar PV case studies


There are many great finance options available, including Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs), which we can arrange for medium to large sized installations.

We can also point you in the direction of an IU Energy finance partner. Download our free guide, ‘How to fund your renewables installation’ here, which includes information about PPAs.

We have been fitting Solar PV for 18 years and our Solar PV panels, inverters and mounts have been chosen through the experience of fitting thousands of them. We only supply Solar PV with long warranties, proven reliability, continuity of supply, efficiency and great after-sales support. To ensure this, IU Energy only uses Tier 1 manufacturers. Tier 1 is defined by 25-year warranties from companies who are likely to be around for that time. The classification means that they must manufacture their own panels (no outsourcing), must be recognised on Bloomberg and must manufacture a minimum number of panels per annum. We call this ‘bankability’.

Yes. IU Energy can design a solar array with panels that provide an additional 20% output per panel for the same surface area of their standard counterparts.

Generally, yes. Providing the structure is sound we can spread loads very effectively, considering other factors like direction and wind. The suitability of any site is assessed during our initial survey. Ground mounting may also be an option.

Yes. Examples are former agricultural land and for applications like Community Energy, or where roof structure limitations/orientation cannot be overcome.

The amount of electricity a solar panel produces depends on three important factors: the size of the panel, the efficiency of the solar cells, and the amount of sunlight the panel gets. These days, most solar panels are about 5.5’ tall and a little more than 3’ wide. Modern panels of this size are rated to produce anything from 250 watts to 360 watts output. If a 250w panel received full sun for one hour, you’d get 250 watt-hours of electricity. With 4 panels, you’d get a kilowatt hour (1 kWh).

This is dependent on several factors including number of panels and roof mounting. The best way to determine your likely costs is to contact us for a site survey.

Six years on average, although we have many clients who achieved 4.

It reduces generation but doesn’t negate it and there are things that can be done to overcome it.

Yes, but there are ways of overcoming it. There are automated panel cleaning systems and bird deterrents. This challenge should not put you off any more than the thought of cleaning windows would stop you fitting them.

Optimum is 30-35 degrees. There are other mounting options however. 

It depends on the space available and you’d need a new inverter.

We’ve been around for seventeen years and are one of the oldest UK energy companies still in business. However, you also have the benefit of Tier 1 manufacturers’ warranties and insurance backed warranties.

The inverters we use connect by wi-fi to a router – it’s just a matter of logging in to monitor performance.

Yes. However, the inverter and installation need to be prepared for battery readiness.

We do it for you.

The simple answer is yes, a solar installation will charge your electric vehicles just as it will supply energy for the rest of your business. Even a small solar panel array with only 10 solar panels can provide enough power to charge a vehicle’s battery. Adding battery storage to this simply extends the useful hours when you can recharge an electric vehicle.
