Frequently Asked Questions

Why is fully funded solar so well suited to care homes?

Care homes are typically high electricity consumption businesses which means the potential benefit from solar is great; the higher the consumption, the greater the benefit could be over the lifetime of a solar system. We understand that the care home sector is under pressure from rising operational costs and that outright capital purchase of solar installations can be un-affordable so our flexible funding solutions can be an enabler by removing the biggest barrier to getting a project done. Our full range of financing options means there should be a funding option for you, regardless of the size of your building, get in touch to find out more.

Will solar panels benefit me and my business?

If you have a roof that's suitable for a solar PV array and you use power in the business then the benefits case for solar is likely to be strong. Our solutions are designed specifically for each customer and so the installation would be optimised to give you the fullest possible benefit and highest return on investment possible. See the full benefits of commercial solar here.

How much will I save?

Every building and business will be different; your roof size, energy consumption and the price you currently pay for power will all influence how much you could save. Request a free personalised quote to see how much you'd save and how quickly you'd pay off a solar system of your own.

I don't use that much power, is it worth considering solar for my business?

As your system is designed specifically for you, even if your power consumption is lower than average, you'll still save and your pay back time will still be attractive as your system would be sized according to your needs meaning that if you are a below average user of electricity your system will be cheaper to pay off.

How does financing solar panels work?

There are big similarities between getting solar panels on finance and getting say a car on finance with one huge difference; taking out finance to get solar panels effectively is an enabler to you saving money on your energy bills. It's a classic case of "speculate to accumulate". When customers ask us to arrange funding for them to invest in solar, we structure it so that the customer is "cash positive", in other words they can pay the cost of the financing out of the savings they make from generating free electricity plus achieve a small overall saving. When the finance has been paid off, that's when you feel the full benefit with significant savings on your electricity costs going directly on your bottom line, for the rest of the lifetime of your solar system.

Finance approach

Once we know what the potential design of a solar system looks like for you and what the associated costs would be, we go to the funding market to determine what the optimal funding approach looks like for your project. We'll illustrate for you each of the viable funding options so you can see the potential savings that could be made with each. These illustrations will show you the art of the possible with using finance to go solar for no upfront investment.

Design approach

The logical place to start is to illustrate for you how much you could potentially save with a solar system. Our design team will conduct a desktop exercise to assess solar potential of your roof space and likely generation output. From there we can forecast the likely savings over the lifetime of the system. As the design team works under our direction, you can be assured that they will produce a design that is focused on delivering the perfect balance between size of system and return on investment, providing you with the maximum potential savings.

Fine tuning approach

The illustrations we provide you are intended as a conversation starter, for you to feed back to us what you like and what you don't and to get you thinking about what your objectives are when financing a project like this. With feedback on these matters, we can then fine tune the finance options to put something in front of you that fully meets your requirements and expectations. Once you're happy with everything, we'll co-ordinate next steps with our installer, to finalise system design and begin the process of gaining the necessary approvals to begin and also with the funding providers to get the finance in place ready to proceed.
