    Benefits of Solar OSU

    There is an urgent need for organisations to transition to sustainable energy solutions that mitigate energy costs and regulatory mandates. Our Solar OSU model offers a solution to these cost efficiency and operational challenges - plus so much more…

    Future-proof energy costs for 20+ years

    Lock-in the cost of energy over the long-term and mitigate the risk of rising inflation.

    Improve energy resilience

    Integrating on-site renewable energy reduces reliance on the grid and offers security of supply.

    Free-up cash flow

    Solar OSU is cash positive from day 1 - plus you can keep your capital in the bank.

    Accelerate net-zero & ESG goals

    On-site solar reduces your carbon footprint and has a positive impact on your Scope 2 GHG emissions.

    Satisfy energy compliance

    Implementing on-site renewable energy satisfies the demands of ESOS and SECR.

    Demonstrate you’re a sustainable brand

    On-site renewables are a visible way to demonstrate your commitment to sustainability.

    The optimum position for solar panels is a south-facing aspect. However, it’s not essential. If you have a north (or, east/west) facing roof, we can make sure you maximise your access to the sun with proper orientation and by avoiding shade.

    Most commercial solar panel installations meet the requirements for ‘Permitted Development’. Permitted development rights allow you to carry out certain building works and changes of use without having to submit a planning application (within reason). As you would expect, there are some limits on permitted development rights – these are designed to protect communities and local amenities from any potentially negative impacts of certain types of projects. For example, if you are located close to a historic (or listed) building – there might be limitations about what is possible. We can signpost you to expert help if necessary.

    Typically, our Solar OSU projects are roof-mounted solar arrays. However, we can also apply the same model to ground-mounted solar schemes. The same minimum criteria applies – which means, our model is only viable for schemes with a minimum of 200-kW average load.

    Our Solar OSU model is designed to futureproof the cost of your energy over the long-term. To make this model commercially viable for everyone – we need to know that you have a reasonable requirement for load. We have calculated the minimum load as 200kW.

    Our Solar PV On-Site Utility solution is a fully-funded turnkey model that unlocks the benefits of on-site generation. We take care of all of the operation and maintenance for the full duration of the agreement.

    For us, quality and reliability is everything. Which is why we only install panels sourced from Tier 1 solar PV manufacturers. This helps us to ensure optimum efficiency and reliability over the full contract duration.

    In most cases we are able to novate the contract to the new building occupier / owner. On the rare occasion this isn’t possible (due to factors such as poor credit of the incoming) then a cancellation fee may be due.

    Yes, absolutely. All data collected from the system can be shared with our customers.

    Yes, currently we have OSU models for Solar and Combined Heat & Power (CHP). We are also able to offer bespoke models for other technologies and we continue to work on expanding our standard offering to heat pumps and EV charging.
