Things to consider when going solar

Is solar right for your business?

There are a few factors that can help determine whether commercial solar suits your business. One of our solar experts will happily help you with any questions to help you make an informed decision.

  1. How much electricity does your business use?
  2. When does your business use this power?
  3. How much are you currently paying for electricity?
  4. Do you have a solar compatible switchboard and meter?
  5. Is the proposed system appropriate for your company’s needs?

The ideal roof

The type of roof your business operates under will have a big impact on potential solar generation.

  • SPACE

    Does your roof have sufficient space, with minimal or no shade?

  • STRENGTH

    Is your roof strong enough to hold solar panels?

  • DIRECTION

    What is the roof pitch? Are tilt frames required to optimise PV system output?

  • OWNERSHIP

    Do you own or rent your business premises?
