There are heaps of reasons why Brisbane solar commercial systems are getting more popular. Brisbane is a great place for solar power since the sun is a huge resource in QLD. Growth in the solar sector has only occurred recently because businesses are buying solar panels. Residential solar has slowed a bit recently.
Brisbane solar commercial – why solar QLD?
Solar QLD have your commercial systems covered. We give you an honest, quality product at an honest, fair price.
Here is what a Brisbane solar commercial system would produce (in kWhs)
- 5kW – 21kWhs
- 10kW – 42kWs
- 15kW – 63kWhs
- 20kW – 84kWhs
- 30kW – 126kWhs
- 50kW – 210kWhs
- 99kW – 416kWhs
The above list shows what a Brisbane solar commercial system would pump out DAILY in kWhs. But this isn’t the whole story! A solar curve will not always match exactly what your energy use is. If you over-produce, you might need to “export-limit” your system. This means you “dump” any extra power which you don’t use. No worries, it just means you don’t get optimal savings every day.
It’s safe to say a Brisbane-based business should under-size a solar system to a maximum of 60% of their usage. For example, if you use 100kWhs a day, you should get a solar system which makes 60kWhs per day. This is only if you want to reduce the chance of “wasting” export-dumped power.
How much will Brisbane solar commercial systems save?
This depends how much you pay for power (and your billing structure). If you’re on a simple billing structure which charges a flat $0.26/kWh (for example) then each kWh you generate (and use) saves you $0.26.
If you were using 60kWhs a day from solar panels, you’d save $15.60 a day (or about $480 a month).
