Site Visit & Survey


Battery Storage

Site Visit & Survey

Having an initial meeting will allow us to gather the necessary information on how the school, college, or university uses energy and what they seek to achieve.

Before the installation process can start, we first need to visit the intended site to get a clear idea of any special requirements or environmental factors that will need to be considered. We will need to consider everything from the physical space available to the property’s location in relation to the sun when it comes to the system design.

Once both parties are agreed on the price and design in principle, we can then conduct a full site survey. We will also take care of any necessary permissions before producing a project plan and finally making a start on the installation itself.

Devon Best Solar Energy System


When it’s time to commence installing a school, college or university solar panel system, the first step is to fix the mounts that will support the solar panels. We can use roof ground mounts or flush mounts depending on the specific requirements and specifications of the individual property.

Solar panel systems are best installed in a south facing direction to ensure optimal solar energy intake, but east and west facing systems can also be acceptable. Regardless of scale, we will ensure the installation process is as smooth as possible with minimal disruption to daily operations.

Battery Storage

If battery storage has been selected for the solar panel system, we will also safely connect them onsite. With multiple buildings and facilities requiring constant power, battery storage can be an ideal addition to solar panel systems for schools, colleges and universities.

The cost of wholesale gas is continually rising and affects the direct cost of electricity. Battery storage can be an attractive alternative for schools, colleges and universities. Opting for battery storage can be more cost effective than selling excess energy back to the grid for SEG payment, allowing for complete energy control.

If you are still unsure what type of solar panel system is right for your school, college or university, contact us via our form or request a quote today. Based in Newton Abbot in Devon, our installation services are available nationwide, or you can take a look at our shop, which ships worldwide.


Happy Customers

The guys at Callidus were all fantastic. We had lots of questions before we had our solar power system installed, and all our many emails were answered very efficiently. The on site team did a really tidy job, and went through how we would use the system. We were very apprehensive about having an off grid system, and had different companies come to quote for the job. We went with Callidus because of the whole package that they offered, which includes their after sales help. We are very happy with the set up and it fulfils all that we asked for, very happy bunnies.

Maxine Heard

We live off grid in Cumbria and wanted to upgrade our electricity supply. We contacted Callidus and they were very happy to work with us. With excellent two way communication they designed the perfect system for us which is easily expandable if we should need it in the future. They were happy to design the system and supply us the parts for us to install ourselves. They programmed the system and were on the end of the phone to help with installation and getting the system up and running. Their after sales service is excellent. It has improved our quality of life no end.

Fantastic customer service! Such incredibly helpful staff. Can’t rate them highly enough. Highly recommend this company. So helpful and really fast service. I spoke with Chris and Dave at a time when other staff where out and they went above and beyond to help.

Isobel Nancarrow

The entire team at Callidus, from the top to the bottom, are amazing. Knowledge, support, passion to place the customer and their needs at the centre of the process, throughout all phases. Clear explanations with realistic expectations; no over inflated figures to close out a deal. I am so satisfied with their approach that I have already completed an expansion of my system; NOT because it didn’t perform as promised, but in fact we are generating more than expected so have increased the battery storage!!

Marcus Rowe

I have just had an off grid solar system fitted by Steve and his team. It has been a completely stress free experience. Everyone was so professional, helpful and obliging, kind and friendly. I would recommend Callidus to anyone.
