Solar panels in Bath
Why choose commercial solar PV in Bath?
Mypower specialises in commercial solar PV installations covering Bath, the south west and beyond. We are an award-winning team who pride ourselves on going above and beyond for every customer in order 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 per unit. It is a great time for your business to go green and save money - you 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 environmental savings. On average, our solar PV customers prevent the release of 50-100 tonnes of CO2 emissions annually - collectively saving 3,300 tonnes of CO2; the equivalent of planting 16,500 trees each year.
Any unused electricity a business generates from its solar installation can be sold to the grid at around 5p per unit, then supplying surrounding houses and businesses in Bath. So, not only would you be producing your own cleaner, cheaper electricity, but also supplying your local Bath community with renewable energy.

Local businesses benefiting from solar PV
Based 27 minutes from Bath, Coveya 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 a solar PV installation to help them reduce their electricity costs.
The 250kW system provides 45% of Coveya's energy requirements. The rest is sold to the grid, providing an annual income of nearly £7,000 and supplying 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.
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 the packing equipment. These two areas alone require some 600,000 units of energy per year. As a high energy user, Lye Cross Farm were an ideal business to benefit from solar PV. Mypower installed 676 solar panels on the roof of their cheese-packing building to save them over £25,000 in electricity costs every year.
The panels significantly reduce the farm's production carbon footprint, helping them to avoid 72 tonnes of carbon emissions a year.
