solar farms & ground mounted
Freewatt is the region's most experienced commercial solar PV installation specialist working on numerous sites across the UK.
We are in the unique position to understand the solar farm planning process first hand. We submitted planning for our own 3.3MW solar farm at our offices in early 2011. We believe that only by making your own choices of siting, manufacturers, finance options and negotiating with the relevant planning bodies can you honestly act as a credible consultant to your customers. Our £8.5m project shows we really practice what we preach.
We can meet your requirements to provide a professional timely solution to give a robust reliable solar PV installation.
Most solar farm projects are carried out because of the fantastic return on investment. You will not only protect your business against rising energy costs but will also add value, reduce your carbon footprint and receive an inflation linked (RPI) income for 25 years from the Feed In Tariff (FIT). In most instances this income is tax-free. There are also other tax advantages for business investing in solar PV. Stand-alone solar farms also attract the FIT but may also be able to negotiate more favourable export tariffs.
Our ground-mount project portfolio includes small-scale domestic installations (4-10kWp) & medium scale (100kWp) local government projects to large-scale >1MW solar farm projects across the UK.
Solar farming is a new entity in the UK, although we are one of the most experienced solar PV engineering companies in the UK you can be confident knowing we have the decades of experience of our German commercial partners behind us.
As your solar PV installation partner we can provide up front advice, financial modelling, feasibility and consultancy through to fully managing your project from design, planning, installation and long-term maintenance.
A typical solar PV system will give you an annual return on investment of approximately 10%. This is much more favourable than most financial products and a solar PV investment is very low risk if you choose Freewatt.
All of our installations are carried out with the utmost care. Our engineers are some of the most experienced and highest trained in the industry. We carry high levels of insurance and will provide full risk assessments and method statements on request.
We use only the highest quality materials and installation methods to ensure you achieve the best possible return on investment without any hassles in the long run.
It is imperative that you chose the best possible equipment and a highly experienced professional installation partner. All return on investment calculations assume there will be no serious problems with your array in the future. That is why we provide a premium solution and can monitor your array remotely for you to protect your investment. We understand that you need security in your investment so you can be confident in the Freewatt service.
Freewatt was the first company in the region to gain MCS accreditation for solar PV and wind turbines. The MCS is just a minimum standard so for more information on who we are please look at our testimonials and who we work for.
Freewatt is also currently working towards ISO9001 and ISO14001.
More than 90% of our new projects come from referrals from our satisfied customers. In a new market this speaks volumes about our professional service. We will also be pleased to put you in touch with one of our customers near you. If you think you would like to proceed with a solar PV installation please either read our other information pages or contact us. We provide a free no-obligation survey. We do not use pushy salespeople and will never ask you to commit or sign any documentation during a survey.
