Home > Solar Design Consultation


If you are considering having a solar panel installation, you need a good design plan to ensure its completion. 

In order to obtain permission from the local building department as well as permission to operate by the local utility, you need to have a PV or photovoltaic solar panel system design. Thus, you need the professional services of a solar design consultation provider. If you hire us at All Brisbane Electrical, you can be assured that you can find the best solar system at an affordable cost.

We at All Brisbane Electrical adhere to the following steps in making a solar design. We take pride in our Solar Design Consultation Brisbane and Brisbane North. 

Four Steps in the Design Process

1. Assess the requirements of the project


We analyse your monthly energy use (kWh) and costs for the past year. The roof’s tilt, slope, obstructions, dimensions, shading, wind speed, azimuth direction toward the sun, local snow load, and exposure category are assessed. The current electrical set up is evaluated, which includes the existing wires and the size and location of the circuit breaker. The requirements for a local permit are also reviewed.

2. Determine the system size and layout

We offer options regarding your desired solar PV system sizes. We ask how many watts you need now and plan to use in the future. Different scenarios regarding how many kWh will be produced using different PV watts are presented. You get to see the solar panel site plan as well as the options for the design layout for both ground and rooftop configuration. 

3. Compare different solar panel systems

We provide you with variations of solar panel and inverters as well as their corresponding costs for the equipment of your choice. Price, quality, performance, and compatibility of different systems are evaluated. You get to know the estimated ROI, lifetime savings, and expected payback with the different choices. The rebate, tax credit, and incentive summary are also presented.

4. Present the final plan

The final plan includes the site plan, electrical specifications, engineering specifications for layout and mounting, product specifications of mounting and electrical components, inverters, and solar panels. You get to have the final purchase order and list of materials as well as a Solar PV System Permit Plan (maximum of 20 pages, printable on 11X17 paper) 

What is the current solar rebate in Brisbane?

Queensland (where Brisbane is located) designed a solar rebate scheme that will help its residents to have lower costs in solar panel installation. Most Queenslanders are eligible for a discount on new solar installations. The amount of $2,797 is the average solar rebate in Brisbane, Queensland. 

Is solar rebate forever?

The rebate will not be stopped immediately. It will be phased out gradually until December 31, 2030. 

How much do solar panels cost in Brisbane?

An average Brisbane household uses a 6.6kW system size and it costs a price range of $4,500 to $10,000 to have a good quality installation. 

What is the average lifespan of solar panels?

Nothing lasts forever, including solar panels. It takes 25 to 30 years for an industry-standard lifespan of solar panels. 

Do you really save money with solar panels?

It takes an estimated $13,142 to install a solar system. In addition to the solar rebate, solar panels not only decrease electricity bills, but they also increase property values. Your return on investment in a solar panel occurs within 3 years.

Is it enough to use solar power to run a house?

Yes, you can run a house on solar power alone as long as the amount of energy produced exceeds the amount of electricity used up every day. 

The decision to have your home installed with a solar panel is a huge one. It is best to deal with professionals to complete technical tasks. A Solar Design Consultation Brisbane & Brisbane North is highly recommended since all of the steps are being taken care of by people who understand the industry in-depth.
