special Projects & Building Integrated PV
Freewatt is the region's most experienced solar PV installation specialist based in the heart of rural Lincolnshire. Whether we design a retro-fit solution as a stand-alone project or work within the parameters of an ongoing design and build project. We can meet your requirements to provide a professional timely solution to give a robust reliable solar PV installation.
Our project portfolio includes small-scale installations on farm houses to large-scale installations on grain stores and ground mounted solar farm investment projects. Solar farms attract an annual income of approximately £50,000 per acre per annum.
As your solar PV installation partner we can provide up front advice, financial modelling and consultancy through to fully managing your project from design, planning, installation and long-term maintenance.
Most commercial 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.
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.
We can install solar PV on nearly any type of building except asbestos or cement fibre. From experience we would recommend changing the roof material. For installation all you need is an unobstructed roof area of at least 10m2. If your roof is not suitable we can install a PV array on a ground mounted framework. Ideally the roof should be south facing, but east or west is still well worthwhile.
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 even monitor your array remotely for you to protect your investment. We understand that you need to focus on what you do in your business so you can be confident in leaving the solar PV to Freewatt.
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.
