Commercial Solar Basics

What can solar do for my business?

Solar power can be an excellent way for a business to significantly reduce its energy consumption however the return on investment is going to be different for each and every business therefore it is important to talk to a solar company that has had many years experience installing solar power systems on businesses of all sizes and shapes.

SunWorks solar will analyse your energy patterns via 30 second interval data or if that is not available from your energy provider detailed discussions with you and your management team – once we have a full understanding of your energy profile we will provide you with a detailed quote and return on investment calculations to enable you to make an informed decision about whether solar power is right for your business.

Smaller businesses can get an excellent return from systems under 15kW in size whereas larger businesses may require systems up to 100kW or even larger. In South East Queensland Energex have different regulations for systems up to 30kW (inverter size) and over 30kW.

Systems over 30kW require considerably more work and incur higher external costs than those of 30kW or less which is why the vast majority of commercial solar power systems installed have a maximum inverter size of 30kW, he returns on these systems can be far greater than a 40 or 50kW system.

The choice of equipment for a commercial solar power system is vitally important as we want to ensure maximum uptime and therefore maximum returns for all our customers. For this reason we only install commercial solar power systems with either SolarEdge inverters or Fronius inverters and solar panels from REC, JA Solar or LG.

Monitoring of your commercial solar power system is key to ensuring maximum yield – how can you be certain that all of the solar panels installed on your roof are working? The only way to do that is to install a SolarEdge system which will show you the output from each and every panel on your roof – to see this in action on a 39.44kW solar power system with 136 solar panels simply click here.

5 Star Review - The Sun WorksRecently Sun Works put a 5 kW Fronius inverter and 20 REC panels on our house. This was recommended after a site visit and various options were canvassed. Within a week of this visit the work was done – old panels removed, new ones put up and the inverter connected to our supplier. Paperwork took five minutes and our iPad app was connected to the inverter so we could be gratified about what we we making each day. None of this would be possible without Sun Works great team – Mike, Peter and Wayne, not forgetting their hardworking panel installers crawling over and under the roof. Each man is a expert and a pleasure to deal with personally, by email or on the phone. You might think all this ‘over the top’ but this is the third house Sun Works have done for us. This speaks volumes for these men and their company – 100% satisfaction guaranteed. Thank you once again!
