Important Factors to Consider – energy usage and expected yield
The consumption profile of your building is key to the financial viability of the project. If you can provide us with a reasonable level of detail such as monthly electricity bills or half-hourly data from your electricity provider, then that is the starting point for us to do an evaluation for you. We can use this information to present meaningful data regarding the cost savings and financial payback achievable from a solar energy system.
We use industry-leading solar design software PV*SOL Premium which enables us to analyse PV system sizing and yield potential. The yield is calculated by considering a number of different factors:-
- The efficiency of core components (panels & inverters)
- The orientation and inclination of the PV array
- The shading of the PV system from surrounding buildings and trees etc.
- Local historic weather data
