Low carbon innovation specialist EA Net Zero (EA NZ) has launched an asset adoption package to help unlock the enormous potential of solar power generation across Britain’s industrial and commercial (I&C) landscape.


The EA NZ offer enables businesses and publicly funded organisations to install solar PV arrays without any upfront cost and to reduce reliance on costlier energy sources while at the same time enhancing sustainability.


The initiative aligns with the ambition of the UK government’s Solar Taskforce, which has a target to increase solar capacity to 70GW by 2035 as part of wider plans to power up Britain with cleaner, cheaper and more secure energy sources. Central to meeting this objective is the installation of solar PV arrays on business premises and buildings such as warehouses, supermarkets, schools and car parks.


The EA NZ package leans on the expertise of the Energy Assets Group, a multi-utilities infrastructure business and one of Britain’s leading independent energy asset adoption and management companies.


EA NZ will design, install and maintain solar arrays in return for a monthly rental payment. End users maintain complete control over the power generated, enabling them to enhance their sustainability, reduce consumption costs and potentially sell excess energy back to the grid.


Solar PV is a long-term energy proposition with a lifespan of 20+ years, offering industrial and commercial users protection against future energy price fluctuations and mitigating risks associated with any future green energy compliance costs.


EA NZ was launched by Energy Assets Group in 2023 to help the I&C sector transition to low carbon technologies, with a portfolio comprising a flexible EV charge point offer, machine learning energy efficiency software and a specialist network connections service, in addition to its new solar PV offer.
