Give me Sunshine! A guide to installing and running a Solar PV system

Wessex Energy manages every step of the process from initial enquiry through to completed and commissioned solar PV system. Our skilled and experienced team are focused on delivering every project within the agreed timeframes and with minimum disruption to your day-to-day operations. We have completed over 500 installations to date and have over 20 years’ experience in the industry – you are in safe and trusted hands.

Who is responsible for health and safety during the installation?

Wessex Energy will appoint a dedicated project manager who will be your single point of contact throughout the project. They will also be responsible for a full risk assessment and method statement prior to any work commencing on-site.
Our Energy Director and Senior Project Manager are NEBOSH, SMSTS qualified and certified. The company is also ISO Health and Safety accredited and carries the RoSPA gold standard..

What happens after the solar PV system is installed?

Our dedicated project manager will complete a full system handover and set you up on the inverter monitoring portal.
Following the installation, we can also monitor your system through our comprehensive Operations and Maintenance (O&M) programme.

How long will my solar PV array last?

Modern solar PV systems are extremely robust. Wessex Energy will only specify ‘Tier 1’ solar modules with industry-leading 10-year product and 25-year performance warranties. Our inverters have a standard 5-year warranty that can be extended to 20 years. All of our work comes with a 2-year workmanship guarantee.

What maintenance is involved for a solar array?

Once installed, solar PV systems are relatively low maintenance. We offer an Operations and Maintenance (O&M) contract that enables us to monitor your array remotely, allowing our technicians to adjust parameters for maximum performance. If any component is underperforming, we can act swiftly, eliminating the risk of lengthy downtime. The very nature of the British weather means that we rarely find regular cleaning to be necessary.
