DQ, Adelaide's leading Commercial Solar Installer
Our quality focus guarantees an excellent Commercial Solar result
Should your business consider a Commercial Solar Panel System in Adelaide?
Energy costs over the last decades have been one of the higher input costs for running a business.
In the last 10 years, these costs have more than doubled, and many businesses are looking for opportunities to reduce their electricity bills.
A commercial rooftop solar system is one of the opportunities to make a significant dent into future electricity expenditure.
Because of the federal government’s solar system support, the payback on a commercial rooftop solar system can be as little as 3 years for a quality focused system.
There are also many ways available to finance a solar system, from power-purchase agreements (PPA) to loan arrangements or cash payments.
DQ can help you to determine the right system-size and explain the various finance options so that you can find the best solution.

Quality Control & Understanding
When you compare solar panel systems, you will notice that some are significantly less expensive than others.
However, there is a significant difference between these less expensive systems and high-quality, long-lasting solar.
This is why we pride ourselves on making sure that when installing commercial solar systems we only use the highest quality panels, making sure that our customers are satisfied throughout the whole installation process.
In a commercial system, even more than for residential systems it is important to choose quality solar panels and inverters, as the reliability and dependability of the commercial solar system is even more important than on a small residential system.
If cheap panels or lower quality inverters fail, if panel manufacturers go out of business or if the panel performs poorly, the commercial solar system owner is losing out.

Commercial Solar FAQs
DQ specialises in designing tailor-made commercial solar systems to match the individual businesses energy demands.
We achieve this by studying your past energy consumption and create calculations that take into account future solar system generation to ensure that we design the optimal system size and ROI solution.
While a top quality solar system might cost a little more upfront, it usually delivers more energy generation each day for many years, such as quality focused approach overtime will result in less interruptions to power generation and eventually a better financial and environmental result.
We have seen on many roofs that cheaper solar systems, using panels of lower wattage and output will also generate less electricity and therefore lower savings year after year.
Better quality components will also add long-term value to your property and having a local and service-focused company install the system in the first place will guarantee that should there be an issue, you will see your commercial solar system return to performance within a relatively short period.
Many of the cheaper installation companies have come and gone in as little as three years, while DQ Electrical and Solar has stayed strong and we have been in operation since 2009.
We have a variety of solar panel systems to fit your budget. All the panels we recommend are built for long-term performance and efficiency.
We work with the most reputable solar panel manufacturers in Australia like LG Electronics, with your specific system designed for Adelaide’s hot and dusty climate.
High performing and reliable products (panels, inverter solutions, and racking) as well as premium installation which will ensure a solid financial outcome over time.
Local representation is an important consideration when choosing a product, as long term warranty support depends on the manufacturer’s long term commitment to Australia as well as the overall financial strength of the manufacturer.
Since 2011, over 450 manufacturers of solar panels have arrived and left Australia, creating a high number of local solar panels on roofs without any meaningful warranty.
The Australian market offers a wide range of commercial inverter and panel solutions and DQ Electrical and Solar, in consultation with you, will make recommendations as to the ideal solution to service your needs, ensuring a solid return on your investment.
After the commercial solar system installation is completed, we will go through a detailed system handover process, where we troubleshoot the most common issues with you.
It is good to know that DQ Electrical and Solar is only a phone call away from any technical questions or as issues might arise.
In order to make sure your commercial solar system keeps on performing and returning solid savings, the system needs to be maintained like any other electrical infrastructure.
Otherwise your system’s performance might decrease overtime and you are not even aware of it.
We supply you with an operations and maintenance manual which will contain a schedule for regular maintenance including visual inspections, testing as well as panel cleaning.
When solar panels are clean they can convert more light into electricity and especially commercial solar panels which are often installed at low angles will benefit from regular cleaning.
Dusty environments, leaves and bird droppings can diminish the performance of solar panels and for this reason it is also important to monitor system performance.
Inverters can also benefit from regular maintenance, for example, the cooling elements or cooling fans can accumulate with dirt which can diminish the cooling capacity, which can lead to power derating and over time a lower lifespan.
For all these reasons, call DQ every 2-3 years for a commercial solar maintenance check.

Why did a solar skeptic invest in a premium solar power system
“- Today we’re installing the solar system up in Teringie. Rocco come to us a couple a years ago. He gave us a budget to work with. And he was a bit of a solar skeptic.
– I was a little bit skeptical because I wasn’t confident that the information that was being supplied to me really satisfied some real questions that I had. But as time progressed, and the more people I spoke to, I became more confident, and I took the leap and put in the first solar system that I have.
– Following on from stage one, Rocco wants to maximize the amount that we can get on the property now. Because there are some limits as to how big we can go in terms of sizing. He thought it was very important now to get the most efficient panel he could, ’cause we are maximizing right up there on the 30 kilowatts now, installed on this property.
– The initial system was a 10 kilowatt system. The one that we’re currently installing is an LG solar panel system, and it’s a 17.6 kilowatt system. An additional 17.6 kilowatts. I decided on LG because after investigating the panels, and also having a look at the panels that I had, I felt that LG offered a better panel. It produced more wattage per panel. It also offered a much better warranty.
– And I think it was a more reliable warranty, rather than, you know, there’s some question marks on some of the warranties that are out in the marketplace. But at the end of the day, I think you’ve, what you’ve got to take into consideration is the product that you end up with. I mean, there’s a lot of cheap products out there, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that it’ll give you the end result that you need.
– Yeah, he’s a very happy customer. I think we really proved to him with stage one how much of an impact solar can make on his energy usage. And he’s very much a believer now, these days.
– [Rocco] I’m happy with what I’ve put in, and I’m happy with the people that I’ve chosen because they offer a good service.”
