Turning daylight into energy
This is achieved using a thin layer of semi-conducting material, most commonly silicon, enclosed in a glass or plastic casing. These can range in size with small versions used on watches and calculators to a system of hundreds of square metres of solar PV panels linked up to make an array to power large buildings.
When exposed to sunlight the semi-conducting material causes electrons in the materials’ atoms to be knocked loose. The electrons that are knocked loose then flow through the material to produce an electric current known as a direct current (DC).
The direct current is carried through wiring to an inverter which converts the current to alternating current (AC) so it can be connected to your property’s main electricity distribution board which either used within the commercial premises or fed back into the national grid also now available is new battery storage technology.
Panels designed for European countries generating power even on cloudy days, they simply need light to produce electricity, not sun.
It pays a set rate per kWh of electricity generated – fixed for 20 years, and an additional rate for any exported back to the National Grid
PPA is available, where you get FREE solar panels on your roof space. They are specifications to this with a variety of factors to consider.
Clients typically pay for electricity at 8-9p / unit once we install solar at no cost on their sites.
All you need is a building with rooftop space or free ground area to host a solar photovoltaic (PV) energy system. It can be mounted on your roof or on the ground – anywhere it is able to capture the sun’s rays and convert it into electricity. We own each solar system.
We buy it, design it, construct it and service it, so that you have none of the inconvenience and expense throughout its lifetime. All you pay for is the energy you generate. And what is more, this is at a lower tariff (typically around 8-9p) than the locally billed rate for conventionally generated electricity. which has a history of rising unpredictably year on year.
The PPA model in the developed markets has become one of the most popular methods enabling power consumers realise the benefits of solar energy. Greenguru created a platform that enables such a model in the UK. With finance partners to enable project development and an ecosystem of domestic and international partnerships. Greenguru is ideally positioned to construct viable long-term solar roof top & ground captive solutions. This allows Greenguru to build a solar generation system on a client’s property in return for a long-term PPA at a pre-determined rate.
The client saves on annual utility bills from the very first year of operations. The green credentials are also paramount and give clients a strong position in the increasing eco-aware world today.
Under the government’s feed-in tariff (FIT) scheme, you’ll be paid for every unit of electricity you generate, whether you use it or not. Since the scheme was introduced in 2010 it’s encouraged thousands of UK property owners to install PV panels. And as well as securing strong financial returns through the tariff, you’ll also enjoy lower energy bills, protect your building from rising fuel prices and lower your impact on the environment. It all makes solar PV the ultimate feel-good investment.
The feed-in tariff is guaranteed by the government for 20 years. Payments will also increase in line with inflation. If you have a solar PV system installed at your premises, you’ll benefit in three ways:

Registering for payments is simple. First we’ll add you to the central MCS database, then send you a certificate confirming your system complies with MCS standards. Next, you’ll need to tell your electricity supplier you’d like to register for the FIT and send them a completed application form along with your MCS certificate and the energy performance certificate. Don’t worry, we’ll help with all the paperwork.
Your electricity supplier will check your installation against the MCS database, confirm that the system’s eligible and add you to the Ofgem Central FIT Register. They’ll also let you know when they need you to give meter readings, and tell you when to expect payment.
