TYPES OF SOLAR

Choose between our different types of solar PV systems:

1. Cost security

Grid-tied system: Utility connection + solar - View Infographic

  • The main driver of funding on a cost security basis is the arbitrage opportunity that the implementation of this technology presents.
  • The applicable grid tariff for the site is a key determinant of the feasibility of a project. The higher the tariff, the greater the arbitrage opportunity and the stronger the feasibility.
  • Unless there is a suitable REFIT contract with the utility for a specific site, we don’t recommend systems designed in excess of 60% of your annual load.

2. Supply security

Off-grid system: Solar + battery + storage - View Infographic

  • Off-grid systems are appealing because the site is 100% self-sustaining with no reliance on the utility.
  • Hybrid systems combine both the concept of off-grid and grid-tied to reduce the peak energy consumption and the impact of interrupted energy supply.
  • Storage solutions generally compete with existing baseload capacity.
  • Feasibility usually fails when trying to justify an off-grid/load shifting solution in the absence of exorbitant downtime costs as battery storage is generally not as economically viable to compete with current utility charges.
