Solar Farms

EPS collaborate extensively with clients to better understand their energy demands, grid connection viability, regulatory benchmarks, and long-term sustainability goals. Our electrical engineering consultancy and design services are tailored to support the further development and optimisation of solar projects across the UK. We have extensive experience in planning, modelling, and designing photovoltaic (PV) solar farms.

Leveraging cutting-edge technologies  such as ETAP and DIgSILENT, our highly skilled power system consultants handle everything from initial site surveys and feasibility studies to full electrical engineering design.

Wind Farms

Harnessing wind energy is a crucial element in complying with the UKs ambitious sustainability goals, which requires the deployment of wind turbines on a large scale. These initiatives can be realised through the strategic implementation of wind farms in areas consistent with strong winds.

As a trusted extension to your organisation, EPS’s power system consultants ensure the performance of your assets meets the criteria set by Distribution Network Operators (DNOs), or the National Grid. We offer technical support, including detailed design, earthing studies, transformer energisation studies.
