Once planning has been gained, we then enter into the construction phase.
Our project team will liaise with the landlord, installation contractor, electrical contractor, distribution network operator (Grid Connection) and solar PV supplier to agree the best construction program for all involved. This is particularly important for brownfield factory installations, as we need to minimise any distribution to the landlords business and work together for a safe installation for all involved.
The installation of the solar array usually takes between 2-3 weeks.
The onsite grid connection works will take place both during the installation period. This may include connection of the solar PV to not only the National Grid but also embedding it into the Landlords factory which will need a detailed timing plan to minimise any disruption this may cause.
Solar Array Commissioning
Once the solar array has been installed we can then start the commissioning process, which includes electrical installation and software set up. This typically takes between 1 - 2 days.
