Go Solar in Seven Steps
1: Research Your Solution
Before purchasing a solar system, it’s important to make sure the investment will be worth your while. That means identifying the best type and size of solar panel and battery system for your needs, as well as looking into the government incentives available in your state.
The price of your solar power system can be affected by:
- Geographic location
- Number of panels required for your needs
- Roof Orientation
- Quality and efficiency of panels
- System design & configuration
- Installation costs
- After installation service
- Monitoring & management equipment
- Costs of grid-connection, and equipment needed
- Obstruction or shading of the installation area
- Type of roofing such as tile, steel, etc.
- Height/stories of roof and it’s accessibility
There can be many other factors that could impact your solar solution. Start by Contacting Us for assistance and we’ll explore all options and provide the best solution for your specific needs.
2: Contact Your Current Energy Provider
Some power companies offer solar system integration and some are more resistant and require additional costs and equipment. You’ll want to contact your electricity retailer to explore:
- If solar panels will affect your utility rates and costs
- If they offer feed-in tariffs. Feed-in tariffs are the amount electricity retailers will pay for excess power generated by your solar panels that aren’t used by your premises.
3: Select your solar panel provider & design your system
We encourage you to check with other solar providers to ensure you’re getting the best solution for your needs.
We often have clients that have started with other companies and gone with us, simply because we make the process simple and quick, while delivering the best products at the most reasonable cost.
You also need to ensure that the company you work with for your system from is a Clean Energy Council Approved Solar Retailer.
Approved Solar Retailers follow industry best practices, only use fully accredited installers and support you with long guarantees of the products and services they offer.
United Solar Energy offers 15-year warranty periods and superior after sales support if required. Be aware that some providers only offer warranties of 5-10 years.
4: Sign a contract
After a full site evaluation and assessment results have been discussed with you, we will provide you with a contract that is designed to protect you in accordance with our accreditations and national standards.
This agreement will detail all the elements associated with your solar panel and battery options. It will also detail the works we will complete for you as well as the guarantee details.
5: Install your solar PV system
We’ve installed thousands of systems around the globe for all manner of requirements. Our installation process is already designed based on the initial site evaluation and requirements, so you will generally have solar panel systems installed in one day.
We operate with high standards and enforce safety protocols that will protect your property and solar system at every stage of installation.
As part of the installation directly applies to the government rebates you’re entitled for; all our staff and installers are accredited by the Clean Energy Council and are fully insured.
6: Connect your solar system to the grid
Power grid connection processes are different for each power provider and vary from state to state.
This process can be tricky and some companies won’t assist you in this stage.
We will guide and assist you in each stage of the grid connection and will have already mapped out and discussed this stage as part of the earlier assessments.
7: Installation complete – The use & maintenance of your solar power system
Once the solution has been installed, connected, tested and fully signed off for certification and rebates, we will assist you in understanding how to manage and maintain your solar cells and batteries.
Ensuring that the panels are clean and clear of any obstruction is rather simple and will ensure an effective system for years to come.
If you have any issues with your system, or questions – we are always here to help you and will endeavour to support you in the years ahead.
