Finance for commercial customers

There are three key ways to finance a renewable energy project. Whilst self-financing is the most popular and offers the best returns over the lifetime of the system, many companies have restricted budgets and therefore a financing option may offer the right solution.

A summary of your options can be found below or for more information please click the relevant option from the list on the left. Alternatively you can also contact us and speak with the commercial sales team.



Self-financing is the most popular option for purchasing a solar PV or renewable energy system. This option offers the best returns over the lifetime of a system and will reduce your payback period considerably.

Many businesses will also be eligible to offset up to £100,000 of the investment in tax through your annual investment allowance. As part of our consultancy-led service, Solarsense are able to put you in contact with our partners to help you investigate your entitlements.


Finance package

Solarsense offer a range of finance packages through our carefully selected partners. From asset finance to hire purchase, we will ensure you receive the best possible advice and a package best suited to your specific business.  


Power Purchase Agreement

A power purchase agreement (PPA) has quickly become one of the most common ways of financing commercial systems. If your energy usage and roof space meets specific criteria, this solution allows you to benefit from a free solar PV installation, financed by a PPA provider. Electricity generated by the system is then sold back to you at a rate much cheaper than your current energy prices, saving you money on your bills.
