Agricultural & Commercial Solar PV Systems

Power your Agricultural or Commercial business with reliable, cost-saving solar PV systems from Simon Annear Solar & Electrical Ltd, available in both ground mount and roof mounted installations.

Secure the future of your farm or business by taking control of your energy consumption. Investing into Solar PV allows you to produce electricity on site rather than buying it in from foreign companies via the national grid. One of the main benefits of this is that it will make your farm or business less susceptible to the spikes in energy costs for generations to come. Overall, investing in solar PV is a smart move to guarantee the future for your farm or business.

Simon Annear Solar & Electrical Ltd is a Cornish business based in Truro, Cornwall. Thanks to our experience in this area, we have been able to supply a dependable and trustworthy service to clients throughout Cornwall. Solar PV is a brilliant investment for farms and industrial businesses as it can help to reduce energy bills, increase self-sufficiency, and reduce carbon emissions. With our help, you can start generating clean energy and enjoying the benefits that Solar PV has to offer.

Agricultural – Solar for farms

Farmers, wave goodbye to your electricity bills and start reaping the rewards of solar PV systems! Energy consumption in the agricultural sector has been historically high due to the reliance on machinery and store equipment.

Western Power Distribution reports that farms in Cornwall alone consume 232.5 GWh of electricity a year, which is a whopping 8% of the region’s total electricity usage. From lighting to heating and powering machinery, these costs add up. Solar panel systems provide a sustainable, economic solution for farmers. Not only can these systems reduce the costs associated with energy bills, but they also offer rural communities the opportunity to reduce their carbon footprint and contribute to the UK’s goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2050. In conclusion, investing in solar panels is an attractive and viable option for farmers in Cornwall to save money and promote sustainability.

Industrial & Commercial – Solar for businesses

By investing in solar photovoltaics, businesses can experience a range of financial and environmental benefits. With electricity being generated on-site from the sun’s renewable energy, energy bills are significantly reduced, while government subsidies and tax incentives add to savings. Excess energy can even be sold back to the grid for additional revenue.

Besides financial gain, solar PV provides a greener option than sourcing electricity from the national grid, potentially enhancing the business’s reputation among environmentally conscious customers, which in turn could improve their bottom line.

Why should your business invest in Solar PV?

Investing in solar photovoltaic (PV) systems presents several advantages, chief among them being energy independence and cost savings on electricity bills. Generating renewable energy from the sun, they require minimal upkeep and boast a long service life, resulting in a dependable power source. Furthermore, many government authorities provide financial incentives in the form of tax credits and the smart export guarantee (SEG) to incentivize adoption of solar PV systems. All in all, solar PV stands as a cost-effective, renewable option when compared to traditional electricity consumption.

I recently decided to get solar panels. I then happened to run into Lewis Annear at Truro Golf Club.This company is a local businesses and I’m going to say they were the most professional business I’ve ever dealt with.From start to finish they were very informative. They knew exactly what I needed and were very helpful advising me of my options.The measuring up and fitting all went without an hitch. Everyone from the scaffolding team to the fitters were professional and courteous from start to finish.I was surprised at how affordable it was and I glad that I chose Simon Annear Solars.Thank you for a job well done. I look forward to saving money on my future electric bills and to helping the environment.

We had friends who had a complete system fitted by Simon Annear, and because of that we chose them having seen the quality of their work. We had air source solar and battery all fitted by this company and they are professional and courteous. When you buy a system like this, it’s not only the equipment and the fitting of it, but the after sales service which you should buy into. I have no qualms that we will be looked after in the coming years, and it was a good decision to have this setup and to have it looked after by them.

We had a 6.6kW solar array with around 16kW batteries and a 10kW Vaillant Arotherm heat pump installed by Simon Annear in September 2023. The introduction and design process was well managed and the installation was quick and efficient. Dates for installation were agreed and kept to. The heating / plumbing and electrical design work was well thought through and this resulted in tidy working practice and a very neat installation. The existing plumbing and heating which was slightly complicated was simplified and converted onto mains supply. Very happy to recommend this company.

Simon Annear Solar and Electrical Services were recommended to us as a company who did what they said they were going to when they said they were going to do it. This is exactly what they did. They installed an18kW solar pv array with batteries and added batteries to our existing system.The work was completed in good time. They were tidy and the communication was excellent. I would definitely recommend them for solar installations.
