How to optimise your solar power system

Pre-feasibility studies

These studies provide an initial evaluation of the viability of solar electricity in your business and form the basis for a go or no-go decision point before committing resources to more detailed feasibility studies. They involve: initial desktop modelling for resource evaluation and system sizing which can then be used for high level financial analysis. Following on from this a more detailed Feasibility Study can be undertaken.

Detailed Design

Total Utilities and its partners can manage all aspects of detailed design through to integration with the grid. This includes:

  • Electrical (low & high voltage) design
  • Equipment sizing and selection for solar, wind, hydro and battery storage
