What to Know About Commercial Solar Installation Process

Many business corporations have shifted to solar power to cut down on their overheads and remove their dependency on the main power grid so that they are not affected by fluctuations and user rates. If you are thinking of adopting solar energy for your business, you need to have in-depth information about your electricity use and future requirements to get an idea of the capacity of the solar power system you are going for.

There are many companies like 13 Kuga that provide commercial solar installation services. You need to research each company to get an idea of their expertise and reliability. A commercial solar panel system is at a larger scale than a residential system. This type of solar is called distributed generation. This is when the energy produced by the panels is used where it is generated. You can connect this system to the local grid as well to allow for net metering. Large scale solar installations will have more individual solar PV cells compared to a residential panel. Generally, they are installed on the roof of the factory. The first step towards obtaining a solar power system is choosing an installer. You can get quotes from several installers to get an idea of their service and price. Before the quotation, the solar company will visit the site to evaluate it. They will determine the location where the solar system will connect to the grid and check the optimal locations for installing panels taking into account geological surveys, structural evaluations and the presence of shade around the day.

Once you select a company, they will look into the design and the installation. They will provide you with a drawing indicating where the panels will be located and details of their arrangement to get the most of sunlight. They will also let you know how the construction to mounting the panels on the roof, ground, carport etc. will be carried out. Once the plans are confirmed, construction will begin. The timeline will depend on the scale of the project. There will be a plan in place to have minimal disruption to your normal operations. You can work with the solar company to figure out these details. An experienced installer will be able to provide you with alternatives and make the process easier for you.

Commissioning the system will take place after construction. You will receive confirmation from the solar provider that the installation is up to standard. You can then proceed with the next step to obtain permission from the utility to connect the solar system to the local power grid. After this, you can produce your own solar energy and use it to power company operations. There will be system maintenance carried out by the solar company from time to time depending on the contract to improve the efficiency of the system. You need to select a solar company that provides good long term maintenance and support to ensure this. Make sure to read reviews and get recommendations so that you are aware of the customer service provided by the solar company.
