The UK's leading provider of solar farm security

We provide security solutions for over 250 solar farms across the UK and Europe, which means we have a wealth of experience in tailoring security systems to provide you with the best long-term, cost-effective solution for solar projects.

Due to the often remote and isolated locations of solar farms, security is fundamental to providing site protection against theft and vandalism. Our focus is on securing the perimeter through a network of CCTV cameras with detection software, and supplying this with a comprehensive remote CCTV monitoring package.

We recommend that solar farm security systems are designed, installed and monitored to BS 8418 standards, the code of practice used for installing and monitoring detector activated CCTV systems remotely. Not only does this ensure a priority Police response, but it means you can satisfy insurance needs.

Security for new solar installations

We talk to our customers and assess each site on an individual basis. We then translate your needs into the right type of system for you. We can provide a supply-only service through to a complete turn-key solution, comprising of:

  • Initial consultation
  • Design of your security systems
  • Installation (civil works optional)
  • Monitoring
  • Comprehensive maintenance
  • Helpdesk support and health-check diagnostics
  • 24-hour emergency engineer call-out.

We have covered key security considerations for new solar installations in our Renewable Energy Checklist – click here to download a copy.

Security for existing solar farms

If you already have security installed, we can support you through a full monitoring and maintenance package.

We have our own purpose-built Remote Video Response Centre (RVRC) which is fully approved to the highest NSI Gold standard, meaning that we are fully accredited for the monitoring of BS 8418 detector activated CCTV systems used in security applications.

From a maintenance perspective we offer remote system health checks (for IP CCTV cameras) and routine site visits, supported by a 24-hour engineer call-out service. We also work with our clients to ensure the continuity of security provisions in the event of a power failure.

To help you evaluate any existing security provisions, take a look at our Renewable Energy Security Checklist or call us on 01775 821100 to arrange a free security review.
