On-Grid Solar & Battery Consultation & Report

Who can Benefit ?

This service gives you Independent Adivce for making the Right Choices if you are considering:

  • Installing a New Solar Power (and Battery ?) System
  • Upgrading an Existing Solar Power System by Adding Batteries
  • Upgrading an Existing Solar Power System by Adding More Panels to meet Additional Demand from New Electrical Appliances - eg. a Heat Pump Hot Water Service, an Air-Conditioner for Heating and/or Cooling, an Electric Vehicle (EV)
  • Installing a New or Upgrading an Existing Solar Power System to meet Additional Demand because you want to Get Off Gas / Go All-Electric


What is Included ?

  1. Initial Phone Consultation to ascertain Your Site Characteristics and Objectives
  2. Pre-Approval Application to Mains Grid Operator (DNSP) for Permission to install (confirming Export-Limit which determines Export-Earnings)
  3. Data Analysis of Electricity Bill & Smart Meter Data.
  4. Modelling of Demand (eg. How will Electricity Demand increase if you replace your Gas Hot Water Service with a Heat Pump Hot Water Service and/or buy an Electric Vehicle (EV) ... and how will that impact the Solar Contribution ???)
  5. Demand Assessment Report A Digital PDF Copy of a Written Report breaking down your Existing Electricity Demand and Modelled Elecricity Demand Scenarios (eg. With a New Electric Vehicle (EV)) so you can see:
    • When you are using Electricity ? (Average Daily and Hourly Demand for Each Season of the Year)
    • On Which Meter Register is Electricity being Imported from the Mains Grid? (Some Import might be occurring on Dedicated Circuits that cannot be supplied by a Solar Power System)
    • How much of Total Demand is being met by Mains Import or by an Existing Solar Power System ? (if applicable)
    • How much of the Generation fron an Existing Solar Power System is being Used Onsite and how much is being Exported ? (if applicable)
    • How Electricity Demand would increase if you made Major Changes - eg. Replaced a Gas Hot Water Service with a Heat Pump Hot Water Service, or purchased an Electric Vehicle (EV) ?

    [ Sample Demand Assessment Report (MODELLED DEMAND) ]
  6. Adding Solar Panels & Battery Report A Digital PDF Copy of a Written Report considering a Range of appropriate System Sizes (Solar Panel (kW) Capacity & Battery (kWh) Capacity) for Your Existing Demand (and if appropriate) Modelled Demand, giving Indicative:
    • Proportion of Demand supplied by Solar (Directly and via Battery) and the Mains Grid
    • Annual Savings
    • Ongoing Bills Remaining to Pay
    • System Prices
    • Payback Periods
    [ Sample Adding Solar Panel & Battery Scenarios Report ]
  7. Component Recommendations (eg. Inverter, Battery, Panels) to suit Your Specific Objectives / Values considering both:
    • Technology Type (eg. String Inverter vs MicroInverters)
    • Specific Brands
  8. Report Review Consultation (One Hour via Zoom) to review & discuss Report findings and work towards a List of Recommended Actions to source Quotations for
  9. Review of Quotations from Solar Power (and Hot Water) Suppliers
