Commercial Installations

Commercial Solar Hot Water

Solarflair are major installers of Solar Hot Water Heating Systems in the North West.

Being Microgeneration Accredited allows us not only to offer Water Heating Systems to provide FREE hot water but also allows our customers access to the funds provided by the government's grant scheme, The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI). This means that our customers will qualify for payback under this scheme at the rate of £0.192 for 7 years for every KWh that the system is calculated to generate.

Depending upon the size of system and the estimated volumes of hot water used then customers could easily have paid off the system within the timescale of the scheme and generate profit thereafter.

Commercial Solar Photo-voltaic (PV)

Solarflair are major installers of Solar PV Electric Systems in the North West.

Being Microgeneration Accredited allows us not only to offer Solar Photo Voltaic Systems to provide FREE electricity but also allows our customers access to the funds provided by the Feed in Tariffs of government’s grant scheme. This means that our customers receive payback each year from the Government as every KWh produced by the system is recorded and all the energy generated is paid for at a set rate of 0.1171p per KWH produced with an extra 0.0485p added to this for any energy you produce, do not use, but export to the national grid. All this on top of the free electricity that you produce and use.


COMMERCIAL/LARGE SCALE GUIDE TO P.V. PRICES

Based upon the assumption that ½ the energy is used in the building and ½ fed back to the grid.


8 KW System

Generate approximately 6670 KWh

Therefore Cash Return =


6670 x FIT Payback £0.1171 / KWh
3335 x Average cost £0.160 / KWh
3335 x Extra fed back £0.0485 / Kwh
= £781
= £534
= £162
    ----------
£1477 p.a.


Estimated Cost of Installation = £9200 + VAT @ 5% = £9660.00

Payback Period under 6 1/2 years Therefore over 13 1/2 years of Profit

10 KW System

Generate approximately 8336 KWh

Therefore Cash Return =


8336 x FIT Payback £0.1171 / KWh
4168 x Average cost £0.160 / KWh
4168 x Extra fed back £0.0485 / Kwh
= £976
= £667
= £202
    ----------
£1845 p.a.


Estimated Cost of Installation = £10,750 + VAT @ 5% = £11,287.00

Payback Period under 6 years Therefore over 14 years of Profit
