Free Commercial Solar Panels

Energy Saving Solar is dedicated to providing high-quality commercial solar panels at no cost to you. We also have a domestic offering.

We were established in 2011 and develop and install electricity generating commercial solar PV systems throughout the UK. We enable businesses to benefit from long-term savings through generating green electricity, with no capital outlay.

We recently conducted a ground breaking survey about UK commercial solar, see the results here:


Our management team has experience of installing over 1,000 solar panel systems. We provide a complete turn-key service from initial enquiry through to installation, monitoring and on-going maintenance.

Energy Saving Solar are experts in providing commercial solar panel system design and installation, specialising in the commercial and agricultural sectors. We specialise in funded solutions, from PPA to Finance and our unique joint-funded model.

Energy Saving Solar manage the full design and installation of panel systems for all markets, from a small 2kW domestic installation to 500kW systems on stadiums.

We have full national coverage, and only employ the highest calibre of contractors for our installations. Due to our unique relationships with funding partners, we can offer a variety of options for each client depending on their needs.

Our Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) allows a completely free solar panel system to be installed, where the client enjoys savings from day 1, and saves on average 30% of their energy spend. The system is fully warrantied and remotely monitored for 20 years.

We have access to low rate finance should a client prefer to have “ownership” of the system.

Finally, we have a hybrid model whereby the client can jointly fund a solar panel system and invest a proportion of the cost for sound returns.

Minimum Requirements

In order to make solar panels viable for a business you should have a spend of £400 a month or greater and have primarily day time electricity usage.

Frequently asked questions

Why is commercial solar free?

We cover the cost of the installation and electricity generated repays the partner (through the Feed-In Tariff) and reduces your electricity bills. After the term of agreement you take full ownership of the panels.

Is there enough sunshine in the UK?

Yes, there is. Solar panels work in direct light not just sun light which means they produce enough electricity even on a cloudy day.

Each square metre of the UK receives between 900– 1200kWh of solar radiation each year, making UK solar viable. Sweden and Denmark for example have large solar industries, and they are much further north than the United Kingdom.

Do the panels require cleaning?

No, they have self-cleaning glass which works when it rains. The glass works in the same way that Velux windows do.

Do I need planning permission?

Solar panel roof systems are a ‘permitted development’ so planning permission is not normally needed. The exceptions to this are if you live in a National Park or Conservation Area – however we take care of all of this for you as part of the proposition.

How long do solar panels last?

Up to 40 years, and all our systems are insurance backed warrantied for 20 years.

How can I repair my roof if there is a solar panel on it?

The solar panels can easily be detached from the roof and removed for easy roof repairs.

What happens if my roof is flat?

This is not a problem at all. In this case we will provide supports or special mounting systems that help achieve the right angle.
