How a Commercial Solar Power System Works?
The solar photovoltaic (PV) process converts solar energy – the most abundant energy source on the planet – directly into electricity. Solar PV modules are designed to capture the solar radiation and convert it from radiation directly into electricity. They produce clean energy without emissions into the environment and hence are much sought after as a renewable alternative to fossil fuel power generation. Further, as there is no moving part or mechanical component, a solar PV system is almost maintenance free.
Large-scale solar PV power plants are connected to the grid and feed the generated power to the grid though the Inverters without using any energy storage medium.
Commercial Solar Power Systems are categorized in the following three main categories:
Small Size Solar Power Systems up to 30 kW Capacity
The Solar Power Systems from 6 kW to 30 kW capacities fall under small systems category. These systems are suitable for those customers whose power consumption is 150 kW per day or 54,750 kWh per year. Small businesses such as Dentistry, Medical Centres, Petrol Pumps, Offices, etc consume electricity less than 150 kWh a day and either they work 5 or 6 days a week. They would need 6 to 30 kW systems to meet their daily electricity requirement.
As there is no feed-in-tariff available for commercial systems like residential systems (means Synergy or other retailers don’t pay for the electricity to be fed to the grid), it is recommended to install an optimum size of the systems to get consumed almost 100% generated solar power.
It is easy to get grid connection approval from Western Power for up to 30 kW systems.
Medium Size Solar Power Systems from 30 kW to 150 kW Capacity
The Solar Power Systems from 30 kW to 150 kW capacities fall under medium systems category. These systems are suitable for those customers whose power consumption is more than 150 kW per day or 54,750 kWh per year. Small businesses such as warehouses, factories, IGAs and other supermarkets, etc consume electricity more than 54,750 kWh a year and they work around the week. They would need 30 kW to 150 kW systems to meet their daily electricity requirement.
It is not easy to get grid connection approval from Western Power for the systems above 30 kW. The procedure to get Western Power is lengthy (6 to 12 months) and need a fee to be paid to get the approval. The customers are required to sign a Contract with Western Power to adhere to the terms and conditioned to be imposed by Western Power.
Western Power doesn’t allow to get exported any power back to the grid. In order to stop outflowing power to the grid Western Power insists to follow a three step process which includes installing a Relay, Power Reducer Device and PLC.
The Large Size Solar Power Systems
The solar power systems above 150 kW fall under the large systems category. Either they can be roof mounted (up to a few Megawatts) or several hundred megawatts ground mounted systems.
