The Process

Where to begin?

Venturing into the renewable energy sector can be daunting, especially given that it may well be a major financial investment that you are making, so it has to be right. Fortunately, at Solar and Wind Applications we are well aware of this and are on hand to guide you through the process from start to finish and beyond. We will always provide honest advice from our wealth of experience and will be happy to explain any or all of our advice or recommendations.

Get in Touch

Once you have an idea of what you would like to achieve just get in touch with us and we will make sure your project is feasible, is in fact what you require and is suitable for your needs. We will then come and see you – we like to put a face to the name as soon as we can. This also means that we can have a look at your project through technical eyes to get an idea of what type of installation you are looking for.

We will also discuss the financial benefits at this stage and any other technical requirements there may be, including planning permission. The Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) requirement is a common point of discussion – we can usually point you in the right direction.


Following the initial stages, we would then design your system (or give you options) and provide a quotation for the works. Our quotes are fully inclusive for the complete service – we will not add on large costs later on for scaffolding or additional labour etc.

Our design service is fully comprehensive and is carried out by our experienced and knowledgeable technical team. Where appropriate we will build 3D models to demonstrate impact of shading on your system in order to provide accurate estimates and optimise module selection, positioning and inverter choice.

Shading Model

Design of a solar PV system is extremely important and it is imperative that a bespoke system is provided to all of our customers to ensure the system will perform to its full potential.

Scheduling and Installation

Our installers will arrange to be on your site at a time to suit you and will carry out the work in the time stated on your quotation.

We are also very familiar with working around other work you may be carrying out on site, or integrating with much larger construction projects – we have worked on large school construction sites as well as home builds and renovation projects. This can be daunting for you, but we are happy to work with your other contractors to ensure this is carried out with minimal fuss.


We will commission and hand over the installation to you with a step by step guide as to what everything does and how it works including any safety features and their operation. Most of our systems are very straightforward and are always labelled, diagrams provided, as well as a system handover pack containing information on how to make the most of your system

Paperwork and Administration

With our experience in the ever changing industry, we always keep on top of the current requirements for both technical and administrative paperwork.

Planning permission, where required, can also seem challenging but we can assist with drawings and any other information required to ensure this is processed smoothly and quickly.

We handle any dealings with the DNO (Distribution Network Operator) regarding your connection to the grid for generators (including batterry storage…). This process is dependent on the size of your system, but we will let you know of any impact this may have on your system design/installation/schedule.
