Transparent-roofed solar PV barns that pay for themselves by generating renewable energy.

Polysolar's panels are manufactured using certified laminated glass which provides construction cost savings, quality weatherproofing and excellent structural integrity making them perfect for large freestanding structures. Our barns are available in a range of sizes structures and finishes which can be tailored and specified to individual requirements.

A typical 400 m2 transparent PV roof barn would generate:

  • 22 MWh per year
  • 25 kWp power generation securing higher FiT and Deemed Export Tariffs
  • £6,067 per year in FiT income and energy savings
  • £195,000 over 20 years
  • 12 year payback, based on capital expenditure of £90,000

There can be additional tax benefits. Solar power is classed as plant and machinery and can be eligible for capital allowances. i.e for the capital cost to be written off against profits.  Our advisors indicate that there can be a case for the whole barn to be classed as plant and machinery. 

*figures are calculated based in Cambridge and an East/West orientation, and on 2014 FiT rates and tariffs with a reasonable inflation rate (RPI 3%, Energy 6.5%).
