At Low Carbon Energy, we like to make it even easier for you to save money on electricity bills and reduce your carbon footprint, which is why we offer free solar for commercial and residential properties. We’ve partnered up with Renewable Energy Investments (REI), who will fund, develop, monitor and manage your commercial solar panel systems or residential Solar PV system – taking the strain out of that initial investment and letting you reap the benefits of renewable energy from day one!

The REI team have managed over 1000 installations and together with Low Carbon Energy offer an unrivalled service, from your initial enquiry right through to on-going management. What’s more, the solar panels can be fitted in just a matter of hours, ensuring there will be absolutely no disruption to your day-to-day business.

How it works

  1. You agree to lease the airspace above your roof to us for 20 years
  2. We install a solar PV system onto your roof, free of charge
  3. We monitor, maintain and insure the system for you for 20 years, at absolutely no cost to you. During this time, we take the feed in tariff and sell back the generated electricity to you at a heavily discounted rate – ensuring you retain all the carbon savings produced by the system without having to worry about any extra costs or maintenance
  4. After 20 years, ownership of the system transfers to you, meaning you can enjoy 100 per cent free solar electricity for the remaining lifetime of the system

Why solar?

With energy bills rising year on year, Solar PV for businesses offers an affordable, reliable, long-term solution that helps businesses become eco-friendly too. By generating your own electricity through the power of the sun, you’ll be able to save thousands of pounds each year while reducing your carbon emissions. In fact, the typical return on investment is in excess of 20 per cent!

Working with Low Carbon Energy

We’re passionate about helping businesses achieve their long-term energy reductions, reducing their ever increasing electricity costs and meeting their green targets, which is why we decided to make solar energy easily accessible to all. A typical installation will save a client £2,400 in year one, and £132,000 over 20 years. The numbers really do add up over the years, so the system is well worth investing in.
