4 Considerations for Installing Commercial Solar Panels

Do the benefits of commercial solar panels have you ready to pick up the phone and enquire about installation? While the benefits of solar energy are widespread and financially appealing, commercial solar systems look different for every business.

If you are thinking about solar panels for businesses in South Australia, you can better prepare for your initial consultation by understanding these considerations. Here's a look at what Solar Power Direct analyses before recommending the best commercial solar panels for you.

What's Your Facility Like?

Commercial solar systems depend first on your facility. Solar Power Direct will look at the size and setup of your building and whether it is suitable for solar power. These factors affect the kind, number and placement of your solar panels.

How Much Power Do You Need?

Every business has different power requirements. How much power you need will determine the size of the inverter, whether you need a solar battery system, and how many solar panels we install. For example, a small business with two employees on computers and phones will require far less power than an entire manufacturing plant.

Quality of Solar Panels and Inverter

The quality of your commercial solar system directly correlates to the efficiency and how much you save every month. To understand how much energy your system will produce, you have to look at the inverter efficiency, not necessarily the size of the panels. That's why you should always use a reliable commercial solar installation company, like Solar Power Direct in South Australia.

Shade Tolerance

When we're installing solar panels for businesses in South Australia, we have to optimise the placement of the panels to receive the most direct sunlight possible. If your building is situated in the shade, you will need shade tolerant solar panels and a solar battery to store energy for use during the shade and at night.
