A commercial solar system Brisbane by Solar Hybrids

Commercial Solar Systems Brisbane

A commercial solar power system differs largely from that of a residential solar system in terms of size, complexity and functionality. Unlike most small residential systems, additional strict measures for protection of the grid is a mandatory requirement. This usually entails additional export control hardware to automatically ramp down rapidly the instantaneous solar power production to match the fluctuating loads of the business. This is often necessary in order to prevent sudden and excessive solar energy exporting to the grid, which may otherwise cause grid voltage instability, a grid phenomenon refereed to by network engineers as ‘flicker’. For commercial solar systems in Brisbane greater than 30 kW, even more additional and complex hardware is required in the form of  what is known as Level 2 Network Protection. This incorporates the addition of a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC), and contactor who’s role is to monitor grid fluctuations & instability and solar PV production, and to automatically disconnect the solar system from the grid in the event of any critical hardware failure within the system. Systems over 30 kW are usually mandated to be designed and signed off by a chartered electrical engineer (RPEQ in Queensland).

Why choose us?

Like us, all of our competitors claim that they are the most experienced in the industry and that their solar solutions are the most reliable on the market – even those who offer budget equipment. No company will admit they are mediocre and that their systems fail after only a couple of years. So how can you tell the real McCoy from the cowboys? This may seem daunting faced with the myriad of companies and technology options available, but one simple method is to check out an installer’s Projects or Case Studies webpage. If they don’t have one, that is concerning, and you should ask to see viable testimonials and photos of some of their installations before proceeding further. If all they have to present is a plethora of small cheap systems for small unknown business and you are after a larger reliable one, then alarm bells should be ringing.
