How much energy do commercial solar panels generate?

The average daily solar radiation in the UK is around 4.5kWh/m2/day, but it can vary depending on the location. The performance ratio is a measure of how well the solar panels are working and can range from 0.7 to 0.9. The system efficiency is the percentage of solar energy that is converted into electricity, it can range between 20% – 22%.

For example, a 100 kWp commercial solar panel system with a performance ratio of 0.85, a system efficiency of 21%, and an average daily solar radiation of 1000kWh/m2/yr will generate approximately 83,900kWh per year.

What are the best solar panels for commercial use?

Some of the most popular and reputable solar panel manufacturers for commercial use are Canadian Solar, Trina Solar, Jinko Solar, Hanwha Q CELLS, REC, and Sunpower.

It’s important to note that the best solar panels for commercial use will depend on the specific needs and requirements of the commercial building or facility. It’s recommended to consult with a solar energy professional to determine the best solar panel solution for your business.

Ground Solar Panels for Commercial businesses

Ground Solar Panels for Commercial Buildings

Ground Solar Panels for Commercial Buildings

A ground-mounted solar system is ideal where there is a high local energy demand to directly supply but limited roof space. A ground-mounted array will sit on a bespoke frame, designed specifically for the ground conditions of your business. 

Often, our commercial solar PV systems will have the benefit of being installed to face south for the optimum orientation and tilt to maximize generation capability.

This type of commercial solar PV system also has a minimal environmental impact and can safely be combined with wildlife and animals grazing around your business. Using our experience in commercial solar panel design, we’ll create a system that integrates completely into the surrounding area.

Ground-mounted commercial solar panel systems take longer to develop than rooftop systems as they need planning permission, alongside various ground condition and topographical surveys as part of the feasibility assessment.
