Commercial Solar Power in Australia
Let us provide metrics based on specific solar components, Australian latitude & insolation, using exact data to assist in your pheasablity phase.

Solar Power Assessment Tools

There are important things to consider when deciding to install solar power (such as choosing the right company to design & install your solar system and selecting the right equipment) but selecting the right place for installing solar power is equally critical in ensuring you will get the highest possible return on your investment & optimised system payback.

How do I evaluate output from solar Solar power

System designers and egineers will use standard formulae to estimate the output of a system based on:

The number produced will be a guide as to how many kilowatt hours (kWh) or megawatt hours (mWh) may be produced by your system under optimum conditions per annum. To this number you need to apply the specifics relating to your precise intended install location. The approximate guide number is the percentage of the number above, that corresponds with the azimuth chart below.

Making the right solar choices

The Azinuth Chart below is based on the Sydney area, and it could be a useful guide for areas in a proximate geographic location also. This is the type of information that a solar power system designer or electrical engineer will use to forecast likely output, or to determine the right place to install the solar array, and the direction and tilt required for optimum output - there are other factors to consider also, such as potential for shade. The column on the left represents the degrees from north, or which direction thesystem is to face, while the other colums to the right show the tilt. Scroll down to the cell that meets between the two to see the probable effectiveness of solar, or potential to produce in percent, if you were to install in a shade free location in that azimuth position in the Sydney area
