Australia is blessed with record levels of sun. Even our least sunny state, Tasmania, gets 193 days of sun each year while our sunniest, Queensland, gets an insane 270 sunny days every year. And for each of those days the sun blazes down for 7.5 hours on average. That amounts to 2,025 hours of sunlight every single year that you can convert into FREE sustainable energy to power your business with a solar system.
It’s so much energy that you won’t just see huge drops in your energy bills, you may even be able to sell your excess energy back to the grid for pure profit. In fact, with our smart financing solutions your system can be ROI positive from day one. Read More
Commercial Solar in Mackay
Despite the rainy summers that Mackay experiences, it still have a high average of sunlight throughout the year due to its cool, sunny winters; this makes it the perfect spot to use solar power as an energy source in both a residential and commercial capacity.
More people the world-over are becoming conscious of the need to find a sustainable, renewable energy resource to take the pressure off the planet and solar power is the perfect alternative. The last couple of years has seen an increase in accessibility and a decrease in price on solar panels in Australia, and this makes it a perfect time to come on board.
Businesses in particular are starting to take more notice of the commercial solar systems. They are not only great for the environment, but companies have started to realise the benefits that come with commercial solar panels for their business too.
Unfortunately, some low-quality suppliers have also jumped on the solar bandwagon, and as such, it’s more common to hear stories about consumers who have been given the runaround.
Choosing the Best Company for Commercial Solar Systems
Here are some of the ways to ensure you are picking the right company for your commercial solar systems and installation:
When it comes to finding the right supplier for your solar panel needs, the first thing you should look into is their accreditation. Firstly, the company should be on the shortlist of names on the Australian Clean Energy Council (CEC), you can check this by very simply asking for their accreditation number, which you can check against on the CEC website. Any other accreditation such as OHSAS are an added advantage and should help you to feel all the more confident.
The price of solar panels has dropped substantially over the last couple of years – this doesn’t mean that you should expect solar panel expert services at an entry-level price. The most reliable suppliers and installers will give you a comprehensive quote on their different product offerings, as well as a indication of how much you are expected to save with commercial solar panels on your property. Keep in mind that solar installation prices will vary for each job, and if yours requires extras such as scaffolding, ensure that is added to the quote and you don’t get a nasty surprise at the end of the installation.
Products and technology
Getting the most out of commercial solar systems depends largely on the technology and products used by your installer. All solar modules should comply with IEC/EN 61730, AS/NZS 5033 and AS4777 testing standards and there should be a use of anti-reflective high energy-yield glass in your reflectors.
Panels, cells, inverters, meters and logging devices should all be sourced through reputable manufacturers too.
The timeline of any solar installation will be different depending on the size of the project – small basic 5kW systems shouldn’t take any longer than 48 hours – but bigger installations will take longer. Make sure you supplier commits to a timeline for your projects and sticks to it as they go.
