Potential Engineering
Commercial services

We possess expert knowledge and extensive experience in crafting high-performance solar systems in the commercial sector.

Commercial solar arrays convert electromagnetic radiation into electrical energy which can be used in several ways to benefit your business. The energy produced can be used in your premises to:

  1. Service current electrical demand
  2. Exported to the public electricity network for payment.
  3. Where there is excess energy at the time of generation, this can also be stored for your business to use at a later date.

Proven commercial benefits

As the demand for renewable energy continues to grow, more and more businesses are looking to invest in commercial rooftop solar panel installations.  There are many benefits to installing a solar array including financial savings, environmental benefits, and improved public relations. However, the installation process can be complex and requires expertise in a range of areas, including electrical & structural engineering, planning and project management.

We will help you to navigate the installation process with an end-to-end service and ensure that you get the most out of your investment in renewable energy.

A commercial solar system can significantly reduce your utility costs, make your day-to-day operations more efficient and make your business eligible for tax relief through investment allowances and carbon taxes. Additional income and savings can provide a huge reduction in one of the greatest fixed costs for normal operations and drastically reduce the size of your business’s carbon footprint.

Many premises already have viable roof space which can be used to generate solar energy. We work with our clients by performing detailed surveys and engineering recommendations to maximise your return through system life.  

Once we have analysed your energy consumption profile and usage data (where available), we provide recommendations for the optimum system size to maximise the reduction in your energy consumption. Where no data can be provided, or where it is not clear at what point in time units are consumed, we have the ability to conduct a power consumption survey over a fixed period using complex measurement instruments to later inform a design using advanced commercial grade software packages.
