The Step by Step Guide to Installing Solar Panel Systems in Geelong

Commercial & Residential Solar panel installations are not a good investment; I think it’s too expensive, I’d rather continue using the traditional means of generating electricity for my business or home…

If that’s something you would say, then it’s time to transition from the analog way of life and embrace technology and sustainable living as it evolves.

Sticking with the traditional means of generating power for your business or home is outdated,  is not a crime, even though it is way more expensive when compared to solar energy.

The question now is,

Why have you not made the switch to move away from your comfort zone even though it’s burning a hole in your pocket?

Commercial & Residential solar panel installations are going to help you save money in the long term, and help the environment.

Why Geelong, Surf Coast & Bellarine Residential and business property owners are switching over & Installing solar panels..

Australia is gradually moving away from the costly, high-carbon, traditional way of generating power such as fossil fuels, oil, gas and coal to a clean renewable source of electricity called Solar energy technology.

As far as solar energy is concerned, you’re either using solar for your commercial needs or personal residential needs.

Both help the environment, and cut costs for you.

The commercial setup is used in offices, industries, factories and other related venues while the residential setup is for households.

When considering solar, it’s important to understand how solar panels work.

How Do Solar Panels Work?

For a commercial or residential solar panel installation to work perfectly, three requirements must be met and they are.

  • Sufficient space to install solar panels (Rooftop preferably)
  • Solar Inverter
  • Solar battery
  1. The sunlight lights up the panel to activate Direct electrical current (DC) which is then sent to the solar inverter.  The DC electricity that is produced by solar panels cannot light up your business environment, on the contrary, alternating electricity (AC) is what is needed which is where solar inverter comes into play.
  2.  The solar inverter in turn converts the DC electricity into alternating electricity which is used to provide electricity that is used to run your business effectively.
  3. The purpose of the solar battery is for storing energy generated by the solar panel so you can use it later.

Now that you have understood how commercial solar panel systems work, we’ll look at how to get a commercial solar panel installation done.
