Frequently Asked Questions

We hope these questions help, if you’re still unsure, please get in touch.

The cost of PV systems is variable depending on the space you have available, the technology you select and your funding method. 

We can provide you with a FREE feasibility study and quote very quickly.  Get in touch for a no-obligation chat.

The average price of an array has dropped from £129,000 in 2012 to below £60,000 today.  This is due to advancements in technology and availability of materials, as well as more sources of manufacture.

Additionally, the increased cost of grid-sourced energy has drastically reduced the amount of time it takes for savings to pay for your system.  Most quotes we provide are now well under five years and sometimes under three.

Our panel of installers are all Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) Accredited.

This is a prerequisite of working with Procure Smart and essential as both a mark of quality and to allow you to maximise the potential uses of your solar PV system.

This depends on individual circumstances. However, a useful rule of thumb to apply is whether the renewable technology is going to change the footprint of your building.  For example, solar PV arrays on your roof usually don’t need permission; but a solar field or battery storage housing would.

Absolutely.  Many SMEs are disproportionately impacted by energy market volatility due to their lower turnover.  Relying less on grid-based power is a massive bonus, offering certainty and lower prices for longer.  Carbon neutrality is also very marketable for smaller businesses, many of which are rooted in their communities.

Solar PV works on all roof types, however a slight pitch of 30-35 degrees optimises efficiency.

Put simply, the conditions in the global energy market over the last few years have created significant risk in operating traditional grids, from distributing energy affordably to the cost or availability of that energy in the first place. Taking control of your business’ energy consumption is more important than ever, in terms of security and of price.  There is no catch involved and the benefits of renewable energy are more apparent than ever.  Fully transparent calculations can be made with certainty ahead of installation, which will provide you with confidence.

If you bought or financed your system yourself, you are responsible for its maintenance and upgrades. Installers offer a maintenance package for a regular fee, which covers various issues.  Panels come with a warranty and have an average lifespan of 25 to 30 years, but well-maintained systems last longer.  Degradation of performance is inevitable with solar PV, however the UK’s climate would typically result in 0.5% degradation per year (as per figures from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory).  Equally, panel warranties usually include performance guarantees for certain periods.

Procure Smart also offers exciting opportunities to build on Target20 and increase customers’ percentages of energy independence.
