Commercial Solar PV

Solar PV in the commercial sector is a valid investment to protect you against rising energy costs. The FIT scheme is designed to encourage businesses of all sizes to invest in small scale energy generation, with the solar PV system generating during the daytime alongside most companies operating hours, it is a perfect way to reduce your expenditure on electricity whilst generating another stream of income for the company. The scheme offers payment for every unit of energy generated at a fixed rate (even the energy you use), guaranteed for 20 years, and index-linked. With recent changes to the Feed-in-Tariff, the cost for wholesale components and the relaxation in the permitted development regulations there has never been a better time to invest in large-scale Solar PV.

Permitted Development Rights were applied to solar PV systems installed onto commercial, industrial and agricultural roof spaces in England on the 6th April 2012. The key piece of legislation is The Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) (Amendment) (England) Order 2012. Our understanding of the legislation is that installing a solar PV panel system will now in most cases come under 'Permitted Development' if the installation is as below:

  • Pitched roofs: The solar PV array must not protrude more than 200mm above the roof line;
  • Flat Roofs: The highest part of the solar PV array must be less than 1m higher than the highest part of the roof (excluding any chimney);
  • The PV array must be sited more than 1m away from the external edges of the roof;

As far as practicable the PV array should be sited to minimise the effect on the external appearance of the building.
