Preliminary Engineering Services

As the solar industry expands rapidly, especially in large-scale utility (with and without battery) and C&I rooftop sectors, preliminary engineering design services have become a necessity. Supportive policies and improving economics drive this growth - emphasizing the importance of adopting renewable energy and our crucial role in facilitating this transition. At Illumine-i, our preliminary design engineering services begin with in-house experienced Australian engineers:
  • Assisting in site surveys to evaluate system feasibility as per applicable codes.
  • Devising PV and string layouts to optimize energy capture, accounting for shading and local environmental factors, adhering to codes such as AS5033, AS4777, AS3008, AS3000, etc.
  • Creating preliminary engineering blueprints for support structures and electrical design (DC & AC) systems,  adhering to Australian standards.
  • Incorporating smart technologies into a structured communication plan for efficient system management.
Our expertise extends to designing several power systems like on-grid, off-grid, hybrid, and micro-grid , providing communities with sustainable energy choices. Additionally, we empower local resilience through community-owned renewable energy projects. To achieve system efficiency, we explicitly fine-tune your solar panel’s azimuth, structural integrity, and tilt angles in the design. This calculated approach suits Australia's diverse climates and gives consistent energy production year-round.

As-built Engineering Services

Introducing our As-built Engineering Services - With an acute focus on detail, we ensure the accuracy of mapping data onsite to drawing, through detailed technical documentation. Here is a snapshot of the process: After the construction phase, our engineers perform 2 crucial steps:
  • Verify alignment between the "As built" system and initial plans, to capture & document the modifications/deviations during construction.
  • Document your project’s configurations, right from solar panel placement to wiring diagrams, meeting relevant Australian standards.
Such documentation aids future maintenance, troubleshooting, system upgrades, saves time, and prevents operational challenges. We assure our As-built drawings enable seamless tracking of construction changes by contractors, owners, and facility  managers!

Experience the captivating detail of our As-built documentation services, tailored to both greenfield and brownfield engineering projects.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. How long does the solar design engineering process typically take in Australia?

The length of time it takes to design a solar energy system can vary depending on the complexity of the project, the level of service required, and the availability of necessary information. Generally, it can take a few days to weeks to design a solar energy system in Australia.  For instance, 100 kW  projects can take around 24 to 48  hours at Illumine-i.

2. Do I get any benefits/rebates for installing solar panels?

Absolutely! In Australia, citizens can benefit from numerous solar rebates, including the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme (SRES), Federal Small Scale Renewable Energy Scheme (SRES), Synergy Distributed Energy Buyback Scheme (DEBS), and Large-scale Renewable Energy Target (LRET). Additionally, individuals qualifying for the Low-Income Household Rebate can obtain a complimentary 3kW solar system, fully installed at no cost.

3. How many solar panels do I need?

The number of solar panels that you need in Australia depends on factors such as personal energy consumption, roof area, property type, and solar system’s overall size. Contact the solar experts at Illumine-i for expert guidance on the optimal count of panels that you would require, to maximize your switch to sustainable energy.

4. Why should I use a solar design service in Australia?

Using an Australian solar design service helps EPCs overcome common hurdles. By leveraging such services, you can overcome hurdles related to optimizing energy production and fulfilling electricity requirements effectively. Moreover, partnering with a reputable solar design service like Illumine-i facilitates adherence to local regulations and eases access to rebates, be it residential, commercial, or utility-scale projects.
