For certain panel mounting we have developed some Do's and Don't for installation

Orientation and Tilt Tables

We have generated a summary of performance for different mounting tilts and orientations for 5 of Australian Cities. Click to Review those Tables.

For the 5 chosen locations, you can calculate how close to max power your system will be for given orientations and tilts.

 

 

Siting Guidelines

A few guidelines around the requirements for solar installations:

  • Do not install in water or in areas experiencing constant spray (ie water fountains)
  • Do not expose to concentrated sunlight
  • Avoid locations in direct exposure to corrosive compounds
  • Avoid or minimise shading that can obscure the effectiveness of the array?
  • Ensure no naked flames will be present for your safety and the design capabilities of the modules.
  • Ensure that the panels will not exceed the designed temperature range for you panels (-40 C to 85 C)

 

Coastal Locations

WINAICO panels are tested for salt mist resistance so are suitable for seaside installation, not including marine platforms or areas with direct contact with salt water. 

As a rule of thumb, please see the following photo of beautiful Coffs Harbour:
