Commercial Energy Solutions a grid connected solar energy system is the most common system that clients use to generate their own power.
One of the biggest advantages of the grid connection is that when you are not using all the power being produced, the overflow of power is transferred back into the grid so it can be utilised by other users in the household or business.
Similarly, when you need more power than what is being produced, excess electricity will be drawn out from the grid.
A grid-connected system is a smart choice of energy systems to power your home or small business.
It provides reassurance to its users because they will continually have a supply of electricity if not enough of it is generated from solar power.
Efficient Commercial systems
The Power generated by your solar system will always be used by you in the first instance, if you generate more power than you are using the additional power will flow out to the grid and be separately metered. Any Power that is used by you as it is generated is called self-consumption and this power is only available when the sun is shining. Electricity from the grid is enough to accommodate to your needs when renewable resources are unavailable, and it also removes the need for batteries and other electricity storage devices.
Solar Energy systems will continue to deliver renewable energy for many decades, there will be a slight reduction in power generated year on year and a typical reduction of 0.5-0.7% per year is expected. Most solar panels have a 25-year power performance warranty and quality inverters and installation normally come with a 10-year warranty. Additionally most Grid connected systems will have a payback between 3-5 years depending on the location and the ratio of self-consumption versus exported power so they continue to offer superior rates of returns for all clients.
Commercial Grid connect systems are similar in concept to Residential Grid connect systems except they are subject to some slightly different rules and regulations about how they are designed and constructed. Commercial Solar PV systems are generally installed on larger buildings, their electrical connections may be wired into complex Commercial substations / switchboards, their DC voltages will be higher, their protection circuitry will be more involved and often certified engineers will be required for commissioning / sign-off. We are fully aware of these subtle differences. Let us take care of this detail and help your business offset some of their expensive electricity bills – talk to us about how we can help your business get a Commercial Grid Connect system sized, designed and installed at your premises.
Commercial Energy Solutions grid connected system is a cost-efficient electrical power system because in most states most power-providers use the arrangement called net-metering.
Commercial Hybrid systems are also similar in concept to Residential Grid connect systems except their drivers and needs may be more complex or more involved depending on how your business is being billed with their electricity account. Commercial Hybrid systems are generally installed on larger buildings, they may have the need to reduce / minimise maximum demand as well as providing power from batteries for overnight power consumption needs. These Commercial Hybrid systems will be wired into complex Commercial substations / switchboards, the components required to build these systems may be different to achieve a greater variety of outcomes for the client. We are fully aware of these subtle differences, let us take care of this detail and help your business offset some of their expensive electricity bills – talk to us about how we can help your business get a Commercial Hybrid system sized, designed and installed at your premises.
Off Grid Solar Energy systems are required when there is no available grid connected Electricity supply available. Off Grid systems can also be referred to stand alone power systems and they are a direct substitute to the mains or grid connected power.
There are an infinite number of variations of the off grid system in terms of sizing and types of generators. The different size systems depend on the desired energy supply to power certain systems in the house, ranging from a tv or fridge to generating the whole water system of the home. Other larger power systems include wind turbines and backup generators. Smaller systems are run by using a DC coupled power source and larger systems are run by AC coupled generation sources. Multi-mode inverters are now being used which contain both AC and DC coupled. This creates a very reliable, protected and flexible power system which has a back-start function if the backup generator fails, the inverter breaks down or if the batteries are drained. There are also several off grid battery options to choose from, such as lead-acid and lithium-ion batteries.
Here at Resourceful Energy, we consider all the key factors when sizing and choosing which off grid system suits your needs. These factors are the average energy consumption per day, the backup power options, the solar exposure/environment surrounding the system, and the peak load required to run the system. We take into consideration all these factors to find out what fits your needs and what will guarantee you to get the best out of our services.
Commercial Off-Grid systems are also similar in concept to Residential Off-Grid systems but the architecture of these Commercial Off-Grid systems can vary significantly depending on what the system is being used for and what equipment and buildings are being driven by this equipment. Commercial Off-Grid systems can power whole communities or rural properties or even whole Islands with a number of different dwellings, businesses, sheds, workshops as well as bores, pumps / irrigation equipment. Commercial Off-Grid systems have enormous potential, our team is experienced with these differing applications small and large, we are fully aware of these subtle differences, talk to us about your needs and we can work up some designs to help you reduce some of your expensive diesel fuel bills.
