Solar panels in Bath
Why choose commercial solar PV in Bath?
Mypower specialise in commercial solar PV installations covering Bath, the south west and beyond. We are an award-winning team who pride ourselves in going above and beyond for every customer to deliver exceptional solar PV designs and installations.
Solar PV generates electricity at 1/3 of the price of the grid. Your business can generate its own renewable energy at 4-5p per unit compared to typical grid prices of around 15p/unit. It is a great time for your business to go green and save money. Your business could be generating 'free' electricity in as little as 5-6 years.
Commercial solar makes sense on a financial level but of course the other aspect is the environmental savings. On average our solar PV customers prevent the release of 50-100 tonnes of CO2 emissions annually. Our customers collectively save 3,300 tonnes of CO2 from being released into the environment annually. This is the equivalent to planting 16,500 trees each year.
Any unused electricity your business generates from its solar can be sold to the grid at around 5p per unit and will then supply the surrounding houses and businesses in Bath. So not only will you be producing your own cleaner, cheaper electricity for yourselves you will also supply your local community in Bath with renewable energy.

Local businesses benefiting from Solar PV
Lye Cross Farm cheese makers
With 3,000 tonnes of cheese in refrigerated storage at any one time, cooling is one of the business's main areas of energy use, along with running of the packing equipment. These two areas alone require some 600,000 units of energy per year. As a high energy user, they were an ideal business to benefit from solar PV. Mypower installed 676 solar panels on the roof of their cheese packing building which will save them over £25,000 in electricity costs every year.
The panels will significantly reduce their production carbon footprint helping them to avoid 72 tonnes of carbon emissions a year.
Coveya are based 27 minutes from Bath and were spending £30,000 per year on their electricity bills. With high electricity usage and a large double pitched warehouse roof, their site was ideal for solar PV and to help them reduce their electricity costs.
The 250kW system will provide 45% of their energy requirements. The rest will be sold to the grid providing an annual income of nearly £7,000 and will supply other local businesses and homes with clean renewable energy. Together, the total annual income and savings for Coveya following their solar PV installation is in excess of £22,000.
