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 Companies in Queensland
The solar industry is just like any other and when you are shopping for your commercial solar system, you need to ensure that you are investing in a product that is of high-quality, made by a reputable company, and is affordable.
There has been a huge increase in the number of Australians investing in solar for residential purposes, and although it’s been a bit slower, businesses are starting to follow suit. At OTI Power, we are one of the best commercial solar energy companies and we’ve also been around for an age – this means we have seen the very best and the very worst of the industry.
Our customers are at the very core of our business, and as long-term advocates of the industry we hate seeing when people trying to invest in solar power are cheated by a dodgy solar company. That’s why we’ve made you this handy checklist to ensure that you find only one of the best commercial solar companies
How to Choose the Right Commercial Solar Supplier
- Contact Past Clients
While we’re all for supporting startups, if you can across a company that claims to have tons of experience, but can’t really prove it to you – then it’s best you run for the hills. An experienced company won’t just have reviews online from past clients, but should also have clients that are able and willing to talk to you about the amazing experience that they had with that company.
In Australia, we are advocates of entrepreneurs and always love to support a new business, but when it comes to something that’s as big an investment as solar panels for your business – you are better off going with the tried and tested version. Contact companies and ask about how long they’ve been operating for and if you could see some of the work that they have done for previous clients to make sure they are as good as they say they are.
- They’ve got the paperwork
It always pays to check out your solar suppliers credentials, as any slippery supplier simply won’t have these. One of the most important certificates a solar company should have is the accreditation from CEC (The Clean Energy Council).
They should also provide you with an upfront quote that covers all of the installation, panels and warranties. If your supplier doesn’t want you to see the quote, or it doesn’t comprehensively cover everything, then look elsewhere – you don’t want a costly add on at the end of the installation process.
- Their price is just right
The price of solar energy has come down spectacularly in the last couple of years, but it still isn’t exactly cheap. If your supplier offers you a quote that seems unbelievable, then chances are that it really is. If their panels were made from the right technology and bought from a trusted source, then there’s no way it should be ridiculously cheap when compared with other companies. Often if it’s very cheap – there’s a good reason for it – and that’s something you don’t want to find out about personally.
