    At PV People We Make It Simple For Your Business To Install Commercial Solar Panels

    Commercial solar panels currently represent one of the best investments your business can make.

    Our commercial systems come with a whole system workmanship warranty of 10 years (systems under 50kWp), inverter warranty of 10 years, and panel warranty of 25 years, guaranteeing your money back without a single penny spent on repairs or maintenance.

    Step 1: Free remote survey using advanced modelling software

    We carry out a remote-desktop survey using our advanced modelling software which allows us to use google earth imagery to estimate the number of panels we can install and generates a performance breakdown for the project.

    The full site address

    Your annual electrical consumption in kWh

    If you have half hourly data from your energy provider please provide this

    The price you pay per kWh (typically around £0.30)

    What are your operating hours?

    Do you have a single or three phase supply?

    Is there multiple sites / meters or just one?

    If you’re unsure about any of the above please contact us and we will assist you with gathering the necessary data.

    Once you have provided us with these details we will prepare a report estimating the cost of the system and detailing what a solar PV system will do to benefit your business. This report will include the system size, cost, ROI, bill reduction %, and amortisation period allowing you to make a fully informed decision whether to progress to formal site survey.

    You can see an example remote-survey report here: Remote Survey Example

    Step 2. Formal site-survey including electrical assessment & 3D drone survey

    If you want to progress to a formal on-site survey and quotation there is a small charge for this depending on the system size. The site survey takes a couple of hours and requires the presence of the site operational and electrical leads. We will talk through the full project, typical time-scales, operational challenges, scaffolding locations, site-specific safety concerns, electrical connections, and cable runs.

    Following the survey we finalise the pricing (our pricing estimates from Step 1 rarely change significantly) and present the final project using our bankable grade modelling software.

    Establish specialist equipment required such as tele-handlers, cable jacks, etc

    Step 3. Price agreed & Project finalisation

    If you agree the system price and want to progress to your commercial solar installation then we require your initial part-payment of 10% of the contract value then we finalise the project as follows:

    DNO application is prepared and submitted to confirm the grid will allow the connection

    Electrical Schematic

    Electrical BOM for connection to existing infrastructure

    Site-specific RAMS

    Stock is placed on reserve

    At the end of this step the project is ready to be installed and we have typical lead times of around 1 month subject to DNO acceptance.

    4. Installation & Handover

    1. Preparation

    Scaffold is erected

    All goods - solar panels, inverters, mounting hardware, electrical kit, are delivered

    Any specialist equipment is arranged

    A further part-payment of 40% is requested following receipt of goods

    2. Installation

    The installation takes place by our qualified engineers, being consious of the existing operations on site

    Typically a site electrical shut-down of a couple of hours is required to make the final connections. This is routinely done out-of-hours or at a time suitable to existing operations

    Most systems are installed in under 1 week

    3. Handover

    Following the final comissioning of the system and electrical testing the system will be fully explained and demonstrated to key staff on site

    You will receive a handover pack including emergency shutdown procedure, final invoice, and proof of ownership.

    We will request the final 50% balance payment

    With current lead times of under one month and no payment until the installation is completed to your satisfaction, choose PV people today as your preferred installation partner!
