Five Essential Inquiries for Your Solar Installation Professional

Brightening Your Path to Energy Efficiency with These Key Questions

As the global shift towards renewable energy gains momentum, solar power stands out as a beacon of sustainability. If you're considering harnessing the sun's energy for your home or business, choosing the right solar installation professional is paramount.

At BVR Energy, we understand the significance of making informed choices for your solar investment. To guide you through this process, here are five essential questions to ask your solar installation professional, ensuring a seamless experience tailored to your unique needs.

What is Solar Panel?

A solar panel, or photovoltaic (PV) panel, converts sunlight into electricity using semiconductor materials. It consists of multiple solar cells that generate direct current (DC) electricity when exposed to sunlight, which can then be converted into usable alternating current (AC) electricity.

What Accreditation Do Your Solar Installers Possess?

In today's standards, a fundamental requirement for solar installers is CEC accreditation. This certification verifies their competency in designing and installing solar PV systems according to Australian standards. CEC-accredited installers can also aid customers in accessing government incentives, reducing solar system costs significantly.

Solar Panel Installation Process Overview

The solar panel installation process provides an essential framework for harnessing solar energy efficiently and sustainably. The steps are as below

Testing and Commissioning

The system undergoes thorough testing to ensure proper functioning before being connected to the grid for activation.

Recommended Solar PV System Size for My House and Why?

The recommended size of a solar power system by an installer should be by your unique requirements, taking into account various factors. It is essential to steer clear of quotes that may be overly expensive or based solely on available stock. During the quoting process, the installer should inquire about crucial aspects to customise the recommendation:

  • What budget are you working with?
  • Is there interest in adding battery storage later?
  • Do you know your roof size, make, and orientation?
  • How many occupants are in the house?
  • What's the typical energy usage pattern (day vs. night)?
  • Do you have a pool?
  • Typical energy bills in summer and winter?

What Return on Investment Can I Anticipate for the Quoted Solar System?

The return on investment period for a solar power system varies, with many houses realising returns within 2-5 years. Key factors include the system size, panel orientation, homes energy consumption, grid export percentage, state Feed-in Tariff rates, and the initial system cost.

BVR Energy, as a reputable installer, is equipped to discuss these factors with you, explaining the calculation process and substantiating their predictions with data.

Is there an Office for the System Components Manufacturers in Australia?

  • Ensuring that the manufacturers of solar system components maintain an office presence in Australia is paramount for the advancement of Solar Energy in Australia.
  • Having local representation guarantees convenient access to assistance, troubleshooting, and servicing, which are essential when addressing any system-related concerns or issues.
  • This direct accessibility streamlines communication and support processes, enabling prompt resolutions and minimising downtime.
  • Moreover, it fosters stronger customer trust and confidence in the reliability of the products and services provided.
  • Additionally, having a local office demonstrates a commitment to the Australian market, enhancing accountability and responsiveness to customer needs.

What is the complete initial cost?

What constitutes the total upfront cost? It encompasses all initial expenses, providing a comprehensive view of the financial commitment required for the installation and implementation of the solar power system.
