About Solar Panels

 

There are two main categories of solar panels that are used in Commercial Solar. Monocrystalline or Polycrystalline.
Each type has their pros and cons

A Monocrystalline panel has a slightly higher cell efficiency because the Monocrystalline wafer is grown and cut from one silicon crystal ingot block which means all of the electrons are uniform creating a better flow for the electrons.

A Polycrystalline wafer has the cells all mixed together which means the electrons flow in different ways creating some resistance and a slightly less efficiency.

In essence, it doesn’t really matter which type of panel is used as each type have their pros and cons; as long as it is a Tier 1 Panel that is used

A Tier 1 Panel is a basic standard of quality recognition put together by the Bloomberg New Energy Finance company in America.

A Tier 1 rating doesn’t necessarily mean it is a higher quality than a Tier 2 panel but it does provide recognised testing procedures and ensure the manufacturing company’s stability.

Depending on the manufacturer and the techniques used in making the panel, efficiency can differ by up to 8% between Tier 1 panels. The higher efficiency panels have quite a margin of difference in pricing.

A Tier 1 Panel is a basic standard of quality recognition put together by Bloomberg New Energy Finance, providing recognised testing procedures and ensuring the manufacturing company’s stability.

In some cases, almost double in price as in the case of LG Neon panels.

An average for Tier 1 panel efficiency is around 17%

For a commercial solar system where possibly not all the power generated will be used, it is advisable to choose a good quality Tier 1 panel without getting too worried about the panel efficiency.

One extra panel added to a system can go a long way to offsetting a different panels higher efficiency output.

Panel efficiency – Smart Panels and Optimisers

 

Solar panels work best if there is no shading or debris on the panel.

Solar panels are made up of either 60 cells or 72 cells per panel. In a 60 cell panel the panel is divided into 6 rows of 10 silicon cells.

These rows are connected in groups with bypass diodes separating each group according to the manufacturers technology, which effectively is like dividing the panel into a series of longitudinal panels within the one panel.

Panel efficiency – Smart Panels and Optimisers

 Solar panels work best if there is no shading or debris on the panel.

If part of one section on a panel gets shade, then the whole section will be compromised and in turn each panel on the string will be compromised by the same amount.
Conversely, Optimised panel technology allows for the rest of the un-shaded panel on separate parts of the bus-bar to perform at 100% efficiency.

Conversely, Optimised panel technology allows for the rest of the un-shaded panel to perform at 100% efficiency.

Solar Panel Optimiser’s

 
Using Optimisers on solar panels is a way to overcome shading problems. Optimisers use technology to localise the shading to the one area so that the rest of the panel is not affected. Optimisers also allow for the monitoring of each individual panel.

There are two main optimisers to consider when deciding to optimise a solar system;

 

SolarEdge optimisers can be very simply added onto any panel by screwing on to the junction box at the back of the panel. Solaredge optimisers can only be used with Solaredge inverters.
Solaredge optimisers work independently of each other

Tigo are another brand of add on optimiser but use less intelligent technology than Solaredge optimisers. The advantage is that they can be used with any string inverter.
This disadvantage is that if one Tigo optimiser fails, then the whole system fails.

In a commercial system, it is recommended to use a system with optimisers so that not only can the panels be remotely monitored but if a panel is compromised by shade or fails, it can easily be identified.

Our recommendation is to use Solar Edge optimisers due to the more intelligent technology.

Latest Solar Panel Technology (in brief)

In the last few years solar technology has started to change with the way solar panels are manufactured.
Some of the new technology can be researched on the links below.
While new technology can give added efficiency and longevity to a cell, unless a budget will allow it is best to stick with current technology instead of chasing the latest technology available.

PERC – Passivated Emitter rear cell

Put simply PERC uses additional layer/s on the rear side of the cell to improve ‘quantum efficiency’ which in effect means more of the light photons which pass through the cell are able to be absorbed, thus increasing total efficiency

Bifacial – Dual Sided panels and cells

Bifacial cells absorb light from both sides of the panel and in the right location and conditions can produce up to 27% more energy than traditional monofacial panels. Bifacial solar panels typically use a glass front and clear rear polymer backsheet to encapsulate the cells which allows reflected light to enter from the rear side of the panel

Multi busbar – Multi ribbon and wire busbars

Busbars are thin wires or ribbons which run down each cell and carry the electrons (current) through the solar module multiple busbars provide lower resistance and a shorter path for the electrons to travel resulting in higher performance

Split Panels – Using half cut cells

This effectively splits the solar panel into 2 smaller panels of 50% capacity each which work in parallel. This has multiple benefits including increased performance due to lower resistive losses through the bus bars (current collectors) The lower current also translates to lower cell temperatures

Dual Glass – Frameless double glass

The rear glass replaces the traditional white EVA (plastic) backsheet and creates a glass-glass sandwich which is considered superior as glass is very stable, non reactive and does not deteriorate over time or suffer from UV degradation with no frame to catch dirt and dust the frameless modules when tilted or flat are much easier to clean and are more inclined to aid from wind and rain to self-clean which results in greater solar output

IBC – Interdigitated back contact cells

These cells have a grid of 30 or more conductors integrated into the rear side of the cell IBC cells don’t suffer this problem and as a bonus look much ‘cleaner’ with no exposed busbars to shade the cells as with normal cells which has the busbars on the front..

HJT – Heterojunction cells.

HJT cells use a base of common crystalline silicon with additional thin film layers of amorphous silicon on either side of the cell forming what is known as the heterojunction multi-layer heterojunction cells have the potential to drastically increase efficiency and the incredibly low temperature co-efficient

Inverters

Which Inverter is best for Commercial Solar

Traditionally European inverters are recommended due to their reliability, efficiency and long track record; The design of the system will determine which is the best inverter to use.

Recommended Chinese / Taiwanese Inverters

 

Chinese inverter technology is rising to meet the high quality and efficiency standards of the European inverters

High quality Chinese inverters tend to source a lot of their internal parts overseas from Europe, America and Japan and then assemble and quality control them in the factories. This way the components are of a high quality and the manufacturing costs are low producing a very good quality inverter at a lower price.

A Brief Overview on Inverters

The main function of an inverter is to take the DC power generated by the solar panels and convert the DC power to AC power which is what is used on the Grid power supply for your business.
 

Inverters fall into three basic categories

String Inverters.

String inverters are a wall mounted inverter. All of the solar panels are connected in strings to the inverter.
Being connected in a string means if one panel in the string is compromised, then all other panels in that string are compromised.

One two or three strings are connected to one Multi Power Point Tracker (MPPT) on the inverter.

A MPPT averages out all of the power from all of the panels on the individual MPPT during the course of the day and feeds the DC power generated into the inverter.  More strings allow for a greater system design as there is a minimum and maximum voltage that each string can handle
One MPPT is used to track the sun from one roof orientation

Commercial inverters have 2 or more MPPTs, therefore panels can be aligned in different roof orientations to make better use of the sun over the day. For example, one MPPT can be connected to panels on a North face and the other MPPT can be connected to panels on the West roof face.

In a Commercial system, more than one inverter can be used depending on the system design

String Inverters.

String inverters are a wall mounted inverter. All of the solar panels are connected in strings to the inverter.
Being connected in a string means if one panel in the string is compromised, then all other panels in that string are compromised.

One two or three strings are connected to one Multi Power Point Tracker (MPPT) on the inverter.
One MPPT is used to track the sun from one roof orientation

In a Commercial system, more than one inverter can be used depending on the system design

Optimiser controlled Inverter

A type of hybrid of the String and Micro Inverter.

Solaredge inverters are similar to the string inverter in that one or more inverters are wall mounted; but the inverter does not have individual MPPTs. Instead, each panel has an optimiser (like the micro inverter) fitted to the back of each solar panel which relays individual panel information about the panels solar generation back to the main inverter.

Like the micro inverter each panel operates independently so that if one panel is compromised it doesn’t affect any other panel and each panel can be monitored to constantly check the operation of the system as a whole

Like the micro inverter each panel operates independently so that if one panel is compromised it doesn’t affect any other panel and each panel can be monitored to constantly check the operation of the system as a whole

Micro Inverters

Micro inverters are as the name implies, very small inverters. There is no central or multiple wall mounted inverters with all the panels connected in strings. Instead, each panel has its own inverter.
In this way, if one panel is compromised it does not affect any other panels in the system.
Micro inverters also allow for a thorough monitoring of the system as each panel can be individually tracked.
It is essential that a high quality micro inverter such as the Enphase model inverter or similar be used. Being attached to each panel the micro inverters are subject to intense variations of temperature and lower quality inverters can easily fail.

One consideration of using micro inverters, is that individual micro inverters are not cheap and it is quite complicated to design and put the system together. Because of this the cost of a micro inverter system can be 20% –  30% higher than a string type inverter system.

Commercial LED Lighting

 

The important consideration when purchasing LED lighting is to make sure they are of a  high-quality; meaning that the LED chip is an industry standard and the LED driver is also high quality.

Poor quality lights can affect the colour of the light output, the brightness and the lifetime of the LED light.

As with everything, doing some research pays off as you get what you pay for.

The lights that Evosol Commercial supply use LED chips and drivers that are certified to Australian Standards and use quality components.

Our warranty is a money back guarantee or total replacement should the light fail under normal working conditions within the lifetime warranty.
Our warranty is backed by our supplier based in Perth.

Commercial LED Lighting

 
When purchasing LED lighting the quality is important. Poor quality lights can affect the colour of the light output, the brightness and the lifetime of the LED light.

Apart from saving power, LED’s have other benefits

* LED lights run cool;
* They are dimmable,
* Change colour as suited with the correct LED driver
* Immediately turn on or off without any time lag.

They can also easily be controlled from a simple light or movement sensor attached to the light, or they can be controlled via electronic smart systems using a remote computer, iPad or phone.
 

Life Cycle

 
LED lights last up to between 35,000 and 60,000 hours with full luminosity

Mercury Vapour  / Metal Halide light –  6000 – 15000 hours with diminishing luminosity,

Compact fluorescent Lights – 8000 – 12000 hours

Reflector Halogen lights – 1000 – 1300 hours

Incandescent Lights – around 1000 hours

With the exception of LEDs and Halogen lights, the lumens (brightness of light output) deteriorates with use.
Also, the transformers to run these lights age, causing an increase in power to run them.

Commercial LED Lighting

 

Replacing high cost energy inefficient Mercury Vapour / Metal Halide Hi Bay lights, Fluorescent lights or outdoor Flood Lghts with LED lights, can reduce a lighting bill by as much as 80%.

 In general, the cost to replace lighting with LEDS is usually recovered in less than a year.

In a comparison of standard High-Bay lights against LED Hi-Bay Lights, the results show conclusively that LED Hi-Bays create huge savings.

Huge Savings with LED Lighting

As an example, take a business that has ten 400W Hi Bay lights that are about 5 years old.

They are still lighting up the factory but not quite like when new, and the aging transformer is using up a bit more power, so we could assume these lights are using up 500W an hour.

That is a total of 5kW an hour for the ten lights.

In general, Hi-Bay’s tend to be on all day; unless each Hi-Bay is on its own circuit and can be independently turned off, which is not so likely.

Assuming these ten high bays are on for 8 hours each day. That is  a total of 40kWs of energy a day  being used at a cost of .25c a unit (average commercial tariff).

That works out to be $10 a day or $250 a month
or $3120 a year (excluding Saturday and Sunday).

In comparison, a 150W LED Hi Bay will replace a standard 400W Hi Bay.

Using the same formula for the hours the standard Hi-Bays are on, ten 150W LEDs, is a total of 8kW a day being used.

That is cost of $3 a day or $52 a month or $936 a year (excluding Saturday and Sunday).  That’s a saving of $2184 a year!

As part of a solar package, we will supply high quality LED Hi-Bay lights, in exchange for a cost of the savings in one year for each Hi Bay replaced (installation cost may be added if needing a scissor lift for installation)

The total cost 10 LED Hi bays will be paid for by the $2184 savings a year from replacing the ten standard Mercury Vapour / Metal Halide Hi Bay lights with LED Hi Bay lights.

In effect; after a year, they are FREE!

Apart from saving power, LED’s have other benefits

LED lights run cool; they are dimmable, can change colour as suited with the correct LED driver and immediately turn on or off without any time lag.

They can also easily be controlled from a simple light or movement sensor attached to the light, or they can be controlled via electronic smart systems using a remote computer, iPad or phone.

The Life cycle of LED lights is considerably longer than other lights, meaning less cost and effort to replace the bulbs. This is extremely important with Hi Bay lights and even street lights, as not only are the bulbs expensive to replace but in most cases, they are difficult to reach.

Life Cycle

 

LED lights last up to between 35,000 and 60,000 hours with full luminosity

Mercury Vapour  / Metal Halide light –  6000 – 15000 hours with diminishing luminosity,

Compact fluorescent Lights – 8000 – 12000 hours

Reflector Halogen lights – 1000 – 1300 hours

Incandescent Lights – around 1000 hours

With the exception of LEDs and Halogen lights, the lumens (brightness of light output) deteriorates with use.
Also, the transformers to run these lights age, causing an increase in power to run them.

A Quick Tech Session on LEDs.

LEDs have 2 main components where the cost can reflect in a high quality or a poor-quality component. The LED chips and the driver.

Light intensity is measured in Lumens; cheaper LEDs will have LED chips with lower wattage lumens, so the 100W LED you buy won’t actually be the equivalent of higher quality 100W LED light that uses a better LED chip with higher lumens per watt.

LED chips have a special sulphur coating that helps provide the colour quality of the light
A poorer quality light will put out a spotlight type of light or have greenish hue.

LED lights need a driver.
The driver maintains an even voltage current so the LED works properly.

If the driver is a poor quality it will fail quickly and then the LED light is finished, no matter how good a quality the chip is.
The main component to fail in the driver is the capacitor.

Batteries

 

Batteries for Commercial Solar are still a way off the mark to make them commercially viable for general back up storage to cover night time use, or for power usage when the grid goes down.

With the payback for batteries in general being 8 to 10 years and the life of the batteries similar, it is hard to justify the outlay cost to savings earned.

In some situations where electricity is needed to be kept on such as in places with perishable goods, especially medicines that need to be kept at a certain temperature, then there is indeed a need for batteries.

In these cases, it would be advisable to put the required appliances on a dedicated circuit and then put battery storage on this circuit to lessen the amount of batteries required in order to keep the costs down.

For a small back up battery system, a Li Ion Battery would be recommended as they take up less space. They can conveniently be controlled using a Battery monitoring system and can be drawn right down and then charged back up again quickly and without damage to the battery.

If needing a larger battery system then there are some serious calculations to be done deciding on which type of battery system is best depending on how the power required is going to be used as far as sudden draw, continuous draw or combinations of both and how quickly the batteries need to be recharged and the amount of power required over what period of time.

There is a large range of different types of batteries using different battery technologies
Below are the Batteries that Evosol Commercial recommends;

For a small back up battery system, a Li Ion Battery would be recommended as they take up less space, are more efficient and have a larger capacity for usage.

If requiring a larger battery system, a series of calculations needs to be done to decide on which type of battery system is best. This depends on how the power is going to be used and the amount of power required over what period of time.
