Construction of roof-top solar power plants

AVENSTON provides general contracting services for the construction of roof-top solar PV power plants. We carry out a full range of works, including the design and installation of solar panels on the roof of your enterprise, as well as the subsequent monitoring and maintenance of a photovoltaic plant.

  • We gained considerable experience in implementing projects of various types – from small private solar power plants to the construction of rooftop industrial solar power plants, whose capacity reaches megawatts.

AVENSTON specializes in the construction of solar power plants for businesses. For many years we have been working in B2B format and implementing investment and construction projects as a general contractor. At the request of the client, we provide support for all licensing and approval procedures necessary to obtain a license for the production of electricity and to get approval for a “green” tariff.

The installation of solar panels on the rooftop will be carried out by professional specialists who trained and have more than five years of experience in implementing large projects.

Prospects and opportunities of rooftop solar power plants

PV-plants for roofs have great prospects since they produce electricity directly near a place of its consumption. Rooftop photovoltaic power systems significantly reduce the business costs for electricity and solve the problem of sudden power outages.

One of the most beneficial qualities of rooftop solar plants in the summer is that they produce electricity that powers the air conditioners in the room. In bright sunshine, when there is a need to cool the room using air conditioning systems, there is maximum insolation and maximum energy generation.

Our company will help you use the full potential of the free space of the roof to generate free electricity!

Economic efficiency of rooftop solar plants

The service life of rooftop solar power plants is more than 25 years, and the payback in the natural conditions of Ukraine is about 4-7 years. After reaching the payback point, the PV-plant owner will receive almost free energy from solar panels on the roof. If proper operation, then replacement or repair of equipment, may require no earlier than after 15 years and only for controllers and inverters.

Solar panels need minimal maintenance, and you can install them on any type of roof. The main thing you should to do is to choose the right mounting system. Installing solar modules on the roof excludes the cost of the purchase or release of the land. Also, solar panels protect the roof against atmospheric phenomena.

Investing in a solar power plant is a profitable and effective solution. The installation of solar panels on the roof begins to be profitable by saving on energy supply from the moment the station is launched. Such smart investments increase the profitability of your business, and for many years steadily serve the benefit of the company.

AVENSTON services include design, equipment supply, construction, and launch of a solar power station! We also carry out operations and maintenance of rooftop PV-plants throughout their entire service life.

Our professional approach to every project from start to finish ensures the stable operation of the energy system, which brings passive income to customers for many years!

Business Benefits of Rooftop Solar Power Plants

A business gains many benefits by installing solar panels on the rooftop of the facility. Be it a livestock farm or production hall, shopping mall or office building, supermarket, or market. The roof area is usually not using, but one way or another you have to maintain and repair it. Below you can learn some of the advantages of rooftop solar systems:

1. Clean and free energy generation

The sun is accessible to anyone on the planet. You do not have to pay for using this inexhaustible resource. Besides, you will reduce the carbon footprint of your company and be on par with the largest world corporations that care about the environment.

2. Energy independence and cost decreasing for the energy supply of the enterprise

Passive income from solar generation is purchasing electricity saves. At the same time, energy consumption is going on near the place of its production. It reduces losses and increases the performance of PV-plant. The rooftop solar station allows you to get some energy independence, which is especially a handful when unstable external power supply.

3. Low maintenance and long service life

A professional approach to the construction and maintenance of a solar power plant ensures its unpretentious use and long service life. The productivity and efficiency of the station depend on how professionally the contractor completes all stages of construction. An experienced contractor must select the right equipment and install it correctly.

4. The rooftop position helps prevent solar panel shading

The maximum efficiency of the panels is possible in the absence of shading objects, so the roof of the enterprise is the best place to place them.

5. Maximum insolation coincides with the maximum load of the enterprise

People’s biological rhythms coincide with the solar rhythm. Our whole life is subject to the alternation of day and night. Accordingly, the operating mode of the enterprise most often adapts to the daily movement of the sun. The main consumption occurs in the daytime when the maximum amount of solar radiation falls on the solar modules and generate a maximum amount of electricity. As for enterprises with an around-the-clock mode of operation, it is beneficial for them to use energy storage systems.

6. Coverage area

The more solar panels, the more productive a solar plant, and the larger area it occupies. Unused roof space is convenient for electric station construction.

7. Silent operation and roof protection

Solar generation is the most silent and imperceptible power generation for humans from all types of renewable energy sources. Besides, the rooftop placement of modules is protecting the roof from wind, rain, or other natural phenomena affecting it.

Questions and answers

Why install a solar power plant on the roof?

The installation of solar panels on the roof of the enterprise allows you to receive additional income from the free unclaimed roof area. The owner of a solar power station uses the kW-hours produced in this way for self-consumption or sells it to an external electric grid at a special “green” tariff.

What affects the payback period of a rooftop solar power plant?

First of all, these are correctly performed calculations and equipment selection. Today there is a wide range of panels with various production technologies. AVENSTON engineers have in-depth expertise in solar panels. We work with reliable suppliers and manufacturers of equipment. Contact us, and we will offer you the most optimal solution.
Also, it is the region in which the station located. If the conditions are favorable, then productivity, efficiency, and the payback will be higher.

Which roofs are suitable for mounting solar panels?

The main rule is that the roof must be strong enough to support the weight of the modules and structures. This is usually not a problem since a properly designed roof can withstand an additional load of 100 kg/m2. The solar system will add only 9-13 kg/m2, so the integrity of the roof will not be damaged.
Roofs of buildings are of two types: pitched and flat. Both types are suitable for mounting solar panels. But the roof material plays a significant role when choosing the option of installing solar panels. The most difficult to mount modules on the slate and a wooden roof. At the same time, tiled or metal roofs are a good place to install solar panels.
The age of the roof is also must take into account. Since solar modules have a lifespan of about 25 years, you need to make sure that the roof is durable enough and you will not have to dismantle the solar station to repair the roof.
