Solar Energy from PVs

The JHW Energy and Planning team are experienced at assessing feasibility, achieving planning consents and delivering completed solar PV projects.

Financial support for PVs through Feed In Tariffs (FIT), and Renewable Obligation Certificates (ROCs) has ceased. Potential does exist for PV where there are onsite power demands, ideally with a seasonal bias towards the spring and summer. Income streams are derived from onsite usage of power with the export of surplus electricity to the national grid. Large scale systems remain an option by leasing a site.

JHW can help you assess the potential your site for development whatever scale you are considering from 4kW to 30MW – whether on roofs or ground mounted systems.

Unlike some other renewable technologies, capital costs have fallen significantly helping to offset the loss of financial support.
