Commercial Solar Installation - Over 15 Years Experience Within The Electrical Engineering Sector
We Install Commercial Solar Panels Across The UK
We have been installing commercial solar for over 15 years. We know from experience how effective solar can be at reducing a company's electricity bill.
At Empower, our priority is ensuring all of our customers are given top-quality customer service and outstanding installations to match. That’s why we make sure that every project is planned, designed, installed and maintained to the best of our ability.
Solar Panel Installation Costs
The cost of a commercial solar system installation can vary significantly from each project. This is because the sizing of each system can range from as little as 6kwp to as large as 500kwp so until we have the required details to calculate your project it's difficult to estimate the cost of your install.
A building with a large kwp (kilowatt peak) solar system is going to generate considerably more electricity than a smaller kwp system. This is what makes such a difference in price. Whether it’s a smaller system you require or a large kwp system, solar is ideal for either because it works to accommodate your needs and ensure your system is the right size for what your company requires.
Why Solar Is Ideal for Commercial Use
Commercial buildings work great with solar because solar is perfect for roofs with a large surface area. Large roof space means you can install a substantial solar system on your building and generate more electricity, with the potential of saving more every month.
Inverters and Optimizers
Our SolarEdge Inverters work hand in hand with our solar panel systems and are one of the best available on the market. They maximise power and efficiency and unlike a traditional string inverter, where shading on one panel would usually cause the entire system not to work or be less efficient, with SolarEdge their inverters are designed to combat this problem so shading on one panel doesn’t affect the other panels on the system. If your interested and want to find out a bit more take a look at our SolarEdge Inverter page or get in contact with our team of experts.
Solar Installation Process
How does it work? Once you’ve contacted our team with the details required, we’ll provide you with a solar system quote specific to your project. Once all the design and planning for your project is completed our team of engineers will visit your building and start the official installation of your solar system. Smaller systems are usually completed in a day however, commercial solar panel installations can take several days depending on the size system you require.
Fortunately, once you get past the initial installation process, there’s very little else you need to think about. Solar panel systems don’t require a great deal of maintenance, and in the winter, you don’t have to worry so much about them being cleaned because the natural weather conditions mean they usually get a good wash on their own.
However, we know our customers deserve the very best, and in the unlikely instance your system is underperforming, or a repair is needed, you want to know you can count on us to fix any problems as quickly as possible. That’s why we offer an excellent customer maintenance package which covers you for an entire year. This means that any system faults will be taken care of and you won’t have to pay additional charges for call outs, as part of our maintenance scheme you'll pay a fixed call out rate for the year with the bonus that if you join our maintenance package our team of specialists will annually come out to clean and test your solar panels to make sure your system meets the high standards we enforce at Empower and put your mind at ease.
Solar Installation is about more than just the aesthetic appeal. Your company could benefit more than you think from investing in solar.
With electricity prices rising, you couldn’t pick a smarter time to invest in solar. As a company the importance of growth is crucial and the last thing that’s going to support that is unreasonably high electricity bills that prevent you from spending as much money in the areas that are important to your company and aid your companies development. Solar gives you the power to do this, by constantly saving you money every month on energy bills worrying about electricity costs is a thing of the past. Installing solar gives you the freedom to take control of your company without worrying about the little things that may have previously got in the way.
Carbon Footprint Reduction
Solar isn’t just good for you, and your business it's good for your environment too. Instead of generating electricity that releases harmful gas emissions into our atmosphere regularly, you can make the switch to solar, meaning you'll significantly reduce the CO2 emissions you release and help fight the constant battle we face over saving our planet from global warming.
It might not sound like much but here at Empower, we're all about being green and helping as much as we can to achieve a healthy and clean atmosphere. Just by generating renewable energy you're doing your bit to help the environment too.
Besides feeling good about what your doing, this reflects on your reputation as a company. By adding solar to your building you're making a bold statement to customers that you not only support saving the planet from harmful emissions but you’re doing what you can to make a difference. Not only does this send a good message to your customers, but it could potentially attract new customers looking to invest in a company that they trust.
Low Maintenance Costs
The best thing about solar is once your system is installed, it doesn’t demand a great deal of maintenance, so you don’t need to worry about constantly having to have your system looked at. Any required maintenance isn’t high in cost but excellent value for money so you get what you pay for without having to do a thing.
Some people decide solar’s not for them. Most of the reasoning behind this is because the installation cost may seem like an unreasonable amount to pay just to generate natural renewable energy, right? Although at Empower, we know solar is the smartest investment you'll make yet, initially yes, your installation could cost more than you envisioned paying, however, the financial benefits you could receive from your solar panel system is worth any money you'll spend to start with and let me tell you why.

Why Its Important You Choose An MCS accredited installer
Whilst making the big decision to have solar installed on your building or property you need to ensure your installers are MCS accredited or equivalent. Installing with MCS accredited installers protects you from potential low-quality installations that installers without accreditation certification could make. At Empower we have over 15 years’ experience in the electrical engineering sector, and our team of engineers are all MCS Accredited so, our customers can enjoy their investment knowing their installer company will be around for the entire life duration of their solar installation.
There’s nothing worse than installing with a company that goes out of business 3 years later, at Empower we regularly get contacted regarding a customer’s previous solar panel installer going out of business, followed by a fault with their solar system and they don’t know who to turn to. That’s why its important you install with a company you can rely on and trust to be there when you need them.
