    Powering Your School The Right Way

    SolarEdge provides intelligent inverters that assist solar systems in the process of turning your schools power from DC into AC for electricity to be generated for commercial use. SolarEdge has produced an app that gives you the freedom to keep close tabs on your solar system wherever you are. Showing you a range of different elements including; enhanced PV performance monitoring and yield assurance showing instant detection when there are any faults and even providing you with module, string and system-level alerts.

    We confidently advise customers to get a SolarEdge inverter because we know their inverters are unlike any other on the market. SolarEdge inverters work to optimize power efficiency to guarantee your commercial solar PV system is working to the highest standard and unlike most, if one panel on your system is shaded and not performing properly SolarEdge optimisers work to ensure this doesn’t affect the other panels.

    Why You Should Consider Solar Installation For Your School

    The reason certain schools and colleges choose not to invest in solar even though they’d like to is due to the expensive initial installation cost. As a company, we know the cost you pay at the beginning might seem a lot untill you know more about solar and how much it can benefit your school or college then, you realise the opportunities solar offers you against the initial price you pay is incredibly generous.

    Despite solar being worth every penny, we offer a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) this is a scheme that works to make the financial step backs no longer an issue moving forward. Allowing you to make the switch to solar that you’ve always wanted to make.

    What Is A Power Purchase Agreement ?

    A Power Purchase Agreement is the perfect way to benefit from a commercial solar pv system without the installation and maintenance costs normally associated with owning a commercial solar pv system. Empower Energy work with several renewable energy asset investors in the UK that can offer a free installation and fully maintained system.

    How Does It Work

    The investment company generate the electricity from the system and then sell it back to the client at a reduced cost. This is typically lower than the rate the electricity company may charge. This lower electricity price serves to offset the customer's purchase of electricity from the grid. The developer receives the income from the sales of electricity as well as any other incentives generated from the system.

    25 Year Agreement

    PPAs typically last 25 years and the developer remains responsible for the operation and maintenance of the system for the duration of the agreement. At the end of the PPA contract term, a customer normally takes ownership of the system for a very nominal fee.
