10 Important Points to Remember While Installing Solar Systems to Your Home or Business Space

Want to go solar? If you’re planning to build a new home or business, installing a solar system can be a great idea. Let’s be honest, the biggest reason for making this decision would be the financial savings in the long run. Businesses have high energy usage as compared to households and a good solar system installation can make a big difference.

Solar energy being a renewable energy source can be a sustainable choice and many people are now tapping into this alternative source of energy to enjoy numerous advantages.

If you’re planning to go for solar systems, here we’ve discussed 10 important points to keep in mind before investing…

1. Know the Roof Condition: One of the great things about solar panels is their durability and most systems last for many years. That is the reason you need to consider your roof condition as it needs to be in excellent form before installing the system. Consider things like layout, materials, etc.

2. The Location of Your Building: The more sun that shines on the solar panels, the more energy they will generate and this is only possible when the location of your building is right. While you may still benefit from solar panels in cloudy locations, you may need to install a few extra panels.

3. Know the Panel Options: There may be different choices available in different regions but roof-mounted panels are the most popular choice. You can install these panels anywhere on a piece of property while the ground-mounted ones may require more labor and materials. Also, the ground-mounted panels are quite expensive.

4. Know the Rebates and Tax Credits: Check for any rebates in your area as they can considerably reduce the cost of your solar system installation. You may need to review your state options to know how much you can save. You can also check with your solar installer for any rebates.

5. Distance to Your Connection Points: Most solar panels are connected to the electrical system at the utility meter and that’s is why you need to check the distance to your connection points. Also, it will be better to consider how far your modem will be from the location of the solar inverters.

6. Check the Contract Carefully: There may be different rules for installing solar panels in different regions. You may also need to sign a contract with details like ownership, financing, etc if there are web-enabled services involved. It is always good to verify if anyone is collecting data on your energy production.

7. Work With a Trustworthy Installer: As solar systems involve a lot of logistics and grid work, it is imperative to find a credible installer. Here at Quality Solar, we are licensed, qualified professionals who have years of experience behind us. We are more than happy to answer any questions that you may have. So, make sure to find a company that you can trust with your installation.

8. Lease or Buy: With many options available, you may want to consider whether to lease or buy the solar panels. For this, you may need to run a cost-benefit analysis for both options available. However, buying your system may pay bigger profits in the long run while leasing lets you access cheaper electricity but with limited benefits.

9. Amount of Energy You Use: The more energy you use, the more benefits you can enjoy from a solar panel installation. Check if your usage will increase or decrease shortly before installing the solar system at your home or business. Talk with your installer to design a panel that best accommodates your energy usage.

10. Know About Warranties: Though there are many types of durable and long-lasting solar panels available, it is still important to make sure that you’re covered. Check for warranties with your installer in case anything should happen to components like inverter, monitoring equipment, racking, etc.

LG Electronics Australia Supports Bushfire Relief Efforts

SYDNEY, 24 February 2020 – LG Electronics Australia today announced the company is donating $500,000 to help with animal conservation efforts. The donation follows the disastrous bushfires that impacted the country and its wildlife earlier this year.

The recent bushfires have impacted the lives of thousands of Australians, businesses and dozens of towns throughout the country. An estimated one billion native animals were also killed during the bushfires and more than 11 million hectares of habitat – an area comparable to the size of South Korea – has been affected across all states and territories.

The donation by LG Electronics Australia will significantly bolster the emergency ‘WIRES Wildlife Relief Fund’ for frontline wildlife rescue and volunteer groups. The fund provides immediate assistance to cover the costs associated with the rescue and care of animals affected by fire, drought and extreme weather conditions. The LG donation will increase funds available for donation to $1.5 million.

Licensed rescue groups and carers licensed as individuals can apply for funds to cover the costs of animal food, medical supplies, veterinary needs and equipment.

Mr. Dan Lim, Managing Director of LG Electronics Australia said, “The Australian bushfires were an unprecedented disaster and one that has deeply affected LG Electronics, our staff and partners. The work being undertaken by WIRES is extremely important to us. It pains us to see the devastation that has occurred.

“LG Electronics is also looking at other ways in which we can actively and positively help groups such as WIRES and these communities affected by bushfires. We hope to make further announcements in the near future.”

LG Electronics announced it will also match dollar-for-dollar any employee donation made to WIRES as part of its ongoing employee engagement program.
