    Free solar on commercial buildings , with PPA (Power Purchase Agreement) rates from as low as 3p

    A power purchase agreement (PPA) is a contract between two parties, one who generates electricity for the purpose (The System Owner) and one who is looking to purchase electricity (the buyer). The PPA defines all of the commercial terms for the sale of electricity between the two parties, including when the project will begin commercial operation, schedule for delivery of electricity, penalties for under delivery, payment terms, and termination. PPA’s are a prefect way for a company to significantly reduce energy cost , with no capital outlay

    Planning permission

    In many cases installing solar panels on non domestic land is likely to be considered 'permitted development' with no need to apply to the council for planning permission. In practical terms, this means any install which is below 50kW and meets the relevant criteria. There are, however, important limits and conditions which must be met to benefit from the permitted development rights (see below).

    Non domestic land for the purposes of these permitted development rights is broad and can include businesses and community buildings.

    You may wish to discuss with the local planning authority for your area whether all of the limits and conditions will be met.

    Solar panels mounted on a non domestic building

    All the following conditions must be observed:

    • Panels should be sited, so far as is practicable, to minimise the effect on the external appearance of the building and the amenity of the area.
    • When no longer needed for microgeneration panels should be removed as soon as reasonably practicable.
      All the following limits must be met:
    • Solar panels installed on a wall or a pitched roof should project no more than 200mm from the wall surface or roof slope.
    • Where panels are installed on a flat roof the highest part of the equipment should not be more than one metre above the highest part of the roof (excluding the chimney).
    • Equipment mounted on a roof must not be within one metre of the external edge of the roof.
    • Equipment mounted on a wall must not be within one metre of a junction of that wall with another wall or with the roof of the building.
    • The panels must not be installed on a listed building or on a building that is within the grounds of a listed building.
    • The panels must not be installed on a site designated as a scheduled monument.
    • If the building is on designated land* the equipment must not be installed on a wall or a roof slope which fronts a highway.
