All newly built dwellings in the UK must now gain a ‘pass’ on their SAP calculations in order to meet current building regulations. SAP stands for ‘Standard Assessment Procedure’ and is the only official, government approved system for assessing the energy rating of a new home. Without it, building control will not sign off the development and the property cannot be let or marketed for sale.

Planners and councils now increasingly use SAP calculations to meet sustainability targets and drive local renewable energy policy.

Solar panels are a great solution to the challenges faced by construction projects that are required to adhere to building regulations and restrict CO2 emissions.

Whether you are building a new house and require just two solar panels to get through planning, or are developing a block of flats that require 15KW of solar power, Green Energy Electrical will be happy to help.

A solar panel installation company, we have completed over a thousand installs throughout Essex, the East of England and beyond on both residential and commercial properties.

If you have a requirement for renewable energy within your developments then please do not hesitate to contact us.

We are NICEIC Approved Contractors, accredited by the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) and members of the Home Insulation & Energy Systems Contractors Scheme (Hies).

Our dedicated staff in our Essex-based offices will be happy to receive your calls and answer any enquiries.

A top class contractor and staff! Thanks.

A top class contractor and staff! Thanks.

Site visit and pre-installation paperwork all went smoothly. No-one tried to warn me off my chosen UK-made PV panels with spurious claims. Instead, good advice was provided. Installation all completed in one morning and seems to have been flawless. One month on, I’ve generated over 0.5 MWh, so can’t complain! Importantly, back-up afterwards went well. NICEIC compliance and MCS certs and all the manuals followed through within 2 weeks (some contractors forget this part). All in all, a top class contractor and staff! Thanks.
