Facilities Management Business Goes Solar

Hewer Facilities Management 30 kW

30 kW of clean, solar energy beginning on the roof working with a Solar Edge system at Hewer Facilities Management in Gloucester.  In a view to practicing what they preach and becoming a low carbon business itself, the company is providing a return on investment working with renewable energy while delivering for their clients on a daily basis.Why Solar PV for your business?

  • Funding – 100% fully funded with the VAT deferred 3-months to enable its recovery through your quarterly submission before paying it out.
  • Monitoring – Online Solar Edge monitoring system through a smartphone, tablet and/or laptop providing the real-time performance to module level and with the ability to set alarms to enable reactive maintenance
  • Maintenance – Your Eco will provide training to your in-house nominated individuals on the requirement so that any works, in the unlikely event they be required can be undertaken reactively in accordance with the monitoring system alarms and product warranties.
  • Warranties – Product warranty from the manufacturers on core components (modules and mounting 10-years, inverters 12-years and optimisers 25-years) and performance warranty of 25-years on modules ensure risks are mitigated on damage or failure. Note in addition we only seek to proposed bankable manufacturers (Solar Edge inverter/optimisers and Van der Valk mounting) with Trina being recognised as the world’s most financially solar panel for the 3rd year running by Bloomberg.
  • Planning – No planning required with the system falling under permitted development based on; not being within a conservation area, panels being 1m in from buildings edge and panels not higher than 1m from the highest point of the roof (they sit flush with the roof and below the ridge). 
  • CSR – In a period of an increased need to act in the fight against climate change, the deployment of solar can both help off-set carbon within the business and demonstrate a positive intent and an underlying CSR commitment to your customers who are increasingly looking at ethical supply-chains and services providers.

Your Eco’s Nick Spicer featured in iNews on ‘Making Money with Solar Panels for your Home’

An estimated 1.5 million homes in the UK are now powered by solar energy, with many Britons choosing to install panels onto their properties to take advantage of the government’s Feed In Tariff (FIT) scheme. Introduced in April 2010, the scheme allows households and small producers to make money by installing solar panels. The FIT pays 4p for every unit generated, with potential annual earnings of £140. You’ll also save money on your electricity bills for the energy you do use.

However, as Nick Spicer, director at Your Eco observes, the savings made by going ‘off grid’ remain substantial. Spicer says: “These days, the drivers for domestic solar are very much self-reliance and saving money by not having to buy energy from utility companies – which can be substantial over the long term. The FIT scheme is less important.” Household solar energy explained Maximum annual solar capacity allowed for small producers under FIT scheme: 50kW Average annual solar capacity of a UK household: 4kW Average units of energy created per 1kW: 900 kWh Average annual units created by a household: 3,600 kWh

The rapidly decreasing cost of solar panels has – along with the FIT scheme – been one of the driving factors behind increased installation in recent years. Your Eco estimates it now costs around £1,250 per 1 kW of capacity to install solar panels onto a UK home. With the average home requiring around 4kW’s of capacity, this brings the total cost to around £5,000. This, Spicer says, compares to around £12,000 to install a solar panel system in 2010 and is one of the justifications the government has given for reducing the FIT rate: He says: “The FIT was always designed to help people recoup the costs of installing solar. Now those costs are much lower the government has – rightly or wrongly – reduced it’s funding.”

Is solar still worth it if I can’t get FIT? As Spicer highlights, FIT is no longer the chief driver behind solar. With the cost of installation standing at £5,000 and – according to Which? research – the average UK energy bill around £1,150, over ten years each household could be looking at an estimated cost saving of £6,500. And this is not accounting for energy price hikes, which we have – in-fact – just seen. Spicer says: “Today, the attractions of domestic solar energy are no about short-term government subsidies. They are about escaping the clutches of the big six energy companies, becoming energy self sufficient and – of course – fighting climate change.”
