Need solar installation- Help
« on: July 05, 2017, 05:26:55 AM »
Hello  :)

First of all I would like to tell you that Iím a new member so I donít have much experience in this field. Recently I have quite frustrating electricity bills in my company. I have read about solar panels and I think they can work and help me with my problem. Itís a quite expensive investment but itís investment in the future.

So to the point..

The average electricity consumption of my company is about 7KW. Besides light bulbs, we have a lot of computers, air conditioning, microwaves etc. So I need letís say 10 KW.

Iíve been searching for some kind of ďexemplaryĒ installation and I found this:

They have solar panels from Ubiquiti Networks. They also provide some test but Iím not so experienced as I wrote on the beginning. In addition they did it by themselves so the assembly costs are none.

There are my questions:

1. Are solar panels from Ubiquiti Networks a good option? The same question about equipment needed to make them work. Maybe you know this manufacturer?

Here I found some specs of the panels on this site so you donít have to search

What do you think about their installation (I mean the first link)? Is it proper, right? Or there is something I can improve in my installation on their basis.

Can you write something of their tests?

Is it better to install the solar system by myself or not?

I would be very glad to discuss this topic with you. Iím waiting for responses  and Iím sorry if  I put the topic in the wrong subsection.

Best Regards

I don't have any idea about Ubiquiti Networks. But one suggestion I can give to you is don't try to install it yourself, get installation done by any leading solar EPC company. There are various reasons for the same, hope this article will help you to know the advantage of getting installation done by solar company.

Installing solar panels is easily done by a homeowner with some electrical know how. Or do th mechanical part and hire an electrician for the wiring part and save money.

To me the electrical is easier than the mechanical and no, I'm not a sparky!  :0)
