Solar for University

Solar for Universities

From initial design and planning, we can deliver installations and upgrades from design right through to hand over. Our multi-skilled teams are dynamic and get involved in different parts of each project, this approach improves knowledge within the team and makes everything run smoothly.

All our projects are carried out with our bespoke project management system which includes group chat communication, order processing and project management tools. This allows our office and site staff to be in immediate communication and process changes, orders and general progress instantly between managers and operatives.

Universities, are the perfect match for solar panels

Expansive roof space, enormous daytime electricity use, and a valuable teaching resource – are just a few reasons why commercial solar PV panels are the perfect match for universities.

Universities often have a number of large un-utilized roof spaces such as sports halls, which offer an ideal opportunity to generate renewable energy. As well as offering a means to significantly reduce daytime energy costs, solar PV offers a means to slash carbon emissions, creating an engaging teaching resource and ‘greening’ a universities’ image.

Power purchase agreements for universities

Solarsense has partnered with the UK’s leading financial institutions to provide universities with a free, fully maintained solar PV system via our power purchase agreement (PPA).

A PPA offers an effective means to reaping the benefits of solar PV without having to take on the responsibilities of being a solar system owner-operator.  A PPA also satisfies universities that would prefer to reinvest their funds into core educational resources or activities.

No upfront costs or ongoing fees means that by opting for a power purchase agreement your university will begin to make savings from day one and continue to benefit for the full term of the agreed term.
