Atlantic Renewables is a one stop solar company for renewable energy projects, solar farms, and both domestic and commercial solar panels in Manchester, Cheshire, and throughout the North West. We take a personalised and hands-on approach to each and every project, making certain that you power your home with the most innovative and efficient technology out there.
Our systems are individually tailored to maximize the installation’s performance, and our experienced electricians and roofers are always on-hand to provide advice and guidance before, during, and after installation. Customer service is at the core of our company values, and we are here to ensure that you get the most innovative solar technology at affordable prices.
We are fully accredited by the MCS, which is a quality assurance scheme supported by the Energy and Industrial Strategy. During our free Solar Survey on your property, we will use simulation software to develop a custom system suited to your property’s requirements.
After that, all of our electrical works are carried out by our fully qualified electricians, and our Solar Mounting equipment is installed by our experienced roofers, ensuring the structural and waterproofing integrity of your roof.
As of January 2020, electricity suppliers with more than 150,000 customers will be obligated to offer export tariffs to those generating surplus energy through their solar panels -- though some energy suppliers, such as Octopus, have voluntarily opted in to providing export tariffs for outgoing power ahead of schedule.
There are no set prices for export tariffs, but every larger electricity supplier will be required to provide at least one export tariff option to any customer with an MSC accredited system of less than 5MW.
As well as being paid for the energy generated by your solar panels, you can also reduce your energy bills by up to 50%. Electricity rates are only expected to continue growing, and a renewable energy source means that you will be able to avoid an annual energy price rise of around 10% a year.
This used to be the case, but thanks to the new range of affordable solar battery storage systems, you will be able to store up energy during daylight hours for use through the night. Our clever lithium ion batteries allow you to maximise your energy generation, and use it outside of daylight hours.
A home battery will mean that you don’t need to rely on energy from the grid when the sun is no longer shining.
Absolutely. Solar panel systems work well on east or west orientations, and even on shallow pitched north elevations, solar systems can generate around 70% of a similar roof facing south at 10 degrees. This means properties with a large energy bill and a big north-facing roof can still take advantage of free, clean solar energy.
What’s more, our photovoltaic cells don’t just require direct sunlight – they continue to work in overcast weather, and even shaded areas. We are able to customise your solar system to work with your property, and micro inverters or solar edge power optimisers can be added to make sure that your renewable energy source is running as efficiently as possible.
In most cases, getting solar panels installed does not require an application for planning permission, as it is included within your Permitted Development Rights. Certain homes and businesses, however, will require planning permission. If you live in a listed building, or within a Conservation Area, then we are always available to provide any guidance or assistance you might need with planning advice and planning permission before the project begins.
Solar panels don’t have any moving parts and are largely maintenance-free. Over time though, weathering and other environmental factors such as dead leaves and traffic pollution could begin to affect your solar panels so it’s a good idea to have your solar panels checked every few years, just to ensure that they are working as efficiently as possible.
If you do experience any issues, we provide fast and efficient maintenance services for homes and commercial properties throughout the Manchester and Cheshire area, from cleaning to pest control, as well as error diagnostics – usually within an hour of arriving.
Solar panels are strong and durable, and our solar panels come with a twenty-five year performance guarantee. So long as they receive regular checks and maintenance, however, they can last more than thirty years.
If you want to power your home with renewable energy, then Atlantic Renewables are ready to help you every step of the way.
We use our accurate simulation software to perform a free impartial Eco-Survey, which includes a full breakdown of your payback period, investment yield, and potential energy savings. There’s no hidden extras, and no pressure to commit.
If you are based around Manchester and Cheshire, and are interested in finding out more about the bespoke solar solutions Atlantic Renewables can provide for your personal or commercial property, then simply get in touch with us, and we will provide you with a free, no strings attached solar survey and quotation at your convenience.
Atlantic Renewables recently installed a 15.12kWp solar panel system on a farm building for an agricultural client in Cheshire. We provided a full EPC service as part of this, including the design, grid application, installation and commissioning of the solar project from start to finish.
Atlantic Renewables recently installed a 4kW solar panel system on the slate roof of a house in Manchester. The system comprised 14 all-black monocrystalline solar panels, offering great efficiency as well as value for money. Our trained solar electrician, meanwhile, installed the solar inverter and metering equipment in the building’s basement to complete the system.
Atlantic Renewables have successfully installed a new flat roof solar array at an apartment complex in Manchester. The client, a building contractor, needed five apartments to be powered by a 1.25kw system. This required a total array size of 6.25kW in order to meet BREEAM New Build Construction standards and building regulations for energy efficiency.
